幫我翻譯 Billy Graham
Graham's coherence and significance depend upon the history of modern evangelical revivalism in the U.S. That history began with Charles Grandison Finney, who created a new American form of religious revival, a highly organized, popular spectacle. (He later gave up his career as an evangelist to become president of Oberlin College in 1851.) The tradition was carried on by Dwight Lyman Moody, William Ashley Sunday and Graham, the disciple of Moody rather than of Billy Sunday. Moody, in Finney's wake, invented Graham's methods and organizing principles: advance men, advertising, aggressive publicity campaigns, and a staff of specialists (prayer leaders, singers, counselors, ushers). Graham perfected Moody's transformation of revivalism into mass popular entertainment, superbly executed in the New York City crusade of 1957, with triumphant performances at Yankee Stadium and Madison Square Garden.
Politics could have been the destructive element for Graham, since he started his rise in the age of Eisenhower and for a time was a fervent red hunter, an admirer of Senator Joe McCarthy and an overall basher of the left, as here in a radio broadcast of 1953: "While nobody likes a watchdog, and for that reason many investigation committees are unpopular, I thank God for men who, in the face of public denouncement and ridicule, go loyally on in their work of exposing the pinks, the lavenders and the reds who have sought refuge beneath the wings of the American eagle and from that vantage point try in every subtle, undercover way to bring comfort, aid and help to the greatest enemy we have ever known — communism."

葛蘭姆的同調和重要性取決於歷史由查爾斯 Grandison Finney，創造了一種宗教性復興的新美國形式開始的在美國的現代福音的信仰復興運動的歷史，一高度地組織，受歡迎的景像。 （他稍後在 1851 年放棄了作為成為的一個福音傳道者 Oberlin 學院的總統的他事業。) 傳統被戴特 Lyman 繼續了心情不穩的，威廉艾殊利星期日和葛蘭姆，弟子心情不穩的寧可超過比利星期日。 心情不穩的，在 Finney w 可能是這樣!!^-^Source(s): 我
