Ex-Presidents at Billy Graham Library Opening

Breaking News

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Visitors to the new, presidential-style museum honoring evangelist Billy Graham enter and exit the building through crosses as tall as 40 feet high, a design meant to emphasize that the $27-million complex is an extension of the minister's work.

''My hope is there will be thousands of people who come here every year and accept Jesus Christ as their savior,'' said the Rev. Franklin Graham, son and successor to his father, the world's most widely heard preacher.

On Thursday, former Presidents Carter, Clinton and George H.W. Bush met with the Graham family before the formal dedication of the Billy Graham Library, expected to draw 1,500 well-wishers.
