Here is a quote from Bob Jones to Billy Graham when Billy was debating about leaving Bob Jones College.
“Billy, if you leave and throw your life away at a little country Bible school, the chances are you’ll never be heard of. At best all you could amount to would be a poor country Baptist preacher somewhere out in the sticks.”
-- Seasons of Refreshing -- page 250 -- Keith Hardman
Of course, Billy did leave and the rest is history.
