KIRKUS REVIEW

Stuart Barton Babbage is the Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral, and he extended the invitation to Billy Graham which resulted in the Southern Cross Crusade glowingly documented here. Australia had always been ""virgin soil evangelistically""- (they routed Oral Roberts) but this ""happy go lucky"", ""sport-loving"" people responded to Graham with ""tremendous spiritual hunger"". He set world shattering records there when 3,250,000 turned out during his three and a half month odyssey. The authors bolster the statistics of his stay with the reactions of the press; of specific strata- social-political- even criminal; with the effect on homes (marriages as well as souls were saved) and on children and teen-agers; on professional men, working men, university students. Obviously, this is further testimony of those who have not only seen the light but want to beam it toward a wider and more enduring audience.
