It seemed quite a joke that this was Martin Graham, not Billy Graham. A complete 'unknown' felt called to ask church leaders in all the major capital cities to come in on an unprecedented world evangelistic mission. Surely, an impossible task.
And two days before starting to travel to meet them all, he was diagnosed with cancer.
Martin's vision was to set up free barbecues run by teams of ordinary people drawn from local churches. It's about as simple as the wheel- and, like that most basic of inventions, it gets people moving! Christians breaking out of their churches to talk, listen and pray with people. This was now to happen from Manila to Moscow, Bogota to Beijing. No contacts, no money. No chance.
The story of Martin and Gina's journey of faith will take you through heart-stopping moments, from times when Martin's life was threatened and his spirit about as low as his bank account, through to the amazing fulfilment of his God-given vision on a worldwide scale. Let his faith-buidling account encourage you to lift your sights and dare great things for God.
"This book leaves you breathless! It will make you ask what you are doing with the one life God has given you... I commend most warmly Sizzling Faith."
-John Sentamu, Archbishop of York
