    Evangelist Luis Palau, who knows and has prayed together with Pope Francis on several occasions, called the new leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics a friend of evangelicals who is respectful of all sides of Christianity.

    The Church Report is pleased to announce this year’s list of The 50 Most Influential Christians in America.

His trip coincided with a visit by President Bush, and Palau was invited to attend a church service in Beijing with the president and First Lady. In an...

    Tens of thousands of evangelical Christian youths, families and leaders from more than 800 area churches will converge on the District Saturday and Sunday for the D.C. Festival, with music, activities and faith. The free festival is open to Christians and non-Christians alike, said organizer Luis Palau, an Argentina-born evangelical minister whom some call the "new Billy Graham." "We want people to realize that following Jesus is a normal part of everyday life," Mr. Palau told The Washington Times. "Symbols become passe and people would instantly turn it off. We want to draw in people who would be turned away...

    Luis Palau is a Latin American evangelist who has preached around the world, and is generally considered second only to Billy Graham as an effective practitioner of mass evangelism. He was scheduled to attend a civic reception that was to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Welsh Revival, a spiritual movement that had global repercussions. Unfortunately, inviting Palau violated PC protocol: The Cardiff City Council cancelled a civic reception for internationally renowned evangelist Luis Palau because of his "extreme evangelical beliefs." The cancellation was prompted by Welsh Assembly Government Member Lorraine Barrett's attack on Palau for his stance on homosexuality...

    Evangelist Luis Palau prayed for captured and killed American troops Sunday during Beachfest in Fort Lauderdale, which rivaled the largest U.S. revivals, according to police crowd estimates. ''Please bless America,'' Palau prayed as a 24-by-16-foot flag was unfurled on the stage Sunday afternoon during a patriotic salute to a nation at war. He asked God ''to protect the troops'' as well as Iraqi ''innocents'' -- people he described as being just like Americans in wanting peace and a better life for their children. He also pleaded with the thousands thronging to hear his message to put aside their political differences...
