NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The remarkable success of evangelist Billy Graham's Crusades for Christ did not come from his preaching alone, but also the immense amount of preparation and follow-up that went into planning each revival.Now, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is taking that experience and applying it to saving souls on the Internet.The premise is simple: Use search engines to find people who are looking for answers to life's big questions and direct them to a website, .From there, seekers are led through a series of readings and videos loosely tied to John 3:16.Organizers say they hope follow-up attention from hundreds of online volunteers will make faithful churchgoers out of those who encounter the site.
