The white hair. Those horn-rimmed glasses. And that voice—that unmistakable bass-baritone voice. George Beverly Shea has witnessed to more than 220 million people, in over 185 countries around the world, making him one of the most well-known gospel singers of all time. His decades-long partnership with Billy Graham took him to stages in every state and on every continent, but that doesn’t mean Bev Shea should be labeled as a performer or an entertainer. No, he was God’s instrument for bringing the hope of the gospel around the world.

George Beverly Shea: Tell Me the Story is a detailed and fascinating look into the life and music of the man often called “America’s Beloved Gospel Singer,” an ordinary insurance worker God used to spread the gospel to every continent.
