One was the greatest rock band of all time, another was a misunderstood poet and Christian convert, and the latter is called, "America's Pastor." The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Billy Graham were the three forces of artistic and spiritual expression in Archer's childhood, and the trio of figures in her father's conversion to Christianity and life's work.
Finding Home with The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Billy Graham is Archer's true account of growing up inside the world of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. For fifteen years her family traversed the globe to prepare cities for Billy Graham's large-scale, sweeping evangelistic meetings.

With humor, insight, and help from two of the greatest musical forces on the planet, Archer explores the universal question, "Where is home?" Through her father's boss, Billy Graham, she finds her way toward the answer to that question.
