“Awesome Place”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

A very spiritual place with inspiring staff willing to aid in any way possible. A place where you can reconnect with the word of God and his followers and teachers. A beautiful place with a library full of inspirational books for purchase at reasonable prices. A large selection of books and articles. A museum of Billy Graham travels and his accomplishments. His family heritage through the years. A very warm and inviting place.

“Beautiful and inspiring place!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Visit the Billy Graham library with my family this summer and it was such a great time. Charlotte is a beautiful and enjoyable city to spend some days and The Billy Graham library will be a deeply inspiring experience. There will be different points where you will not be able to hold your tears. It is very impacting to read, listen and see how a man has been influencing and changing our world through his faith in Jesus Christ. The library is absolutely welcoming to all ages and truly recommend it as a family experience.

“Something special”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

At first I thought I was lost pulling up to a gate with a guard, but no was greeted and told I was in the right place. You will find lots of parking. The first building you come to is the childhood home(moved from original location) of Billy Graham, here you will learn about his humble childhood on a dairy farm. The next building is over-sized barn, Inside you will find the story of Billy Graham , a book store and a Large snack bar. Outside are beautiful gardens and walks. There is something special here I just do not know how to put it into words.

“Touching in a quiet way”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Do not know why but somehow the staff, the hymns, the films, and the surrounding all are very touching in someway or other that affect your emotion.
The staff are polite and soft spoken. Some people feel they are rush from one room to the next and it might due to the fact is not commercialy run so you feel a little awkward.
A exceptional spiritual bookstore and giftshop.
