Steve McQueen, a legendary actor, passed away years ago in 1980 after being diagnosed with cancer.
The actor was best known for his roles in movies like ‘The Sand Pebbles’, ‘The Great Escape’ and ‘The Towering Inferno’. He was also the highest paid movie star in the world in 1974.
A new book and documentary about Steve McQueen are being released in May of 2017 by Pastor Greg Laurie.
According to the Christian Post, both the book and the movie will reveal many details about ‘McQueen's fairly unknown path to Christ in the last days of his life’.
One key and interesting detail has already been released ahead of time.
“Hollywood icon Steve McQueen, who accepted Christ months before he was diagnosed with fatal cancer, died clutching legendary evangelist Billy Graham's Bible.”
In 2016, rumors circulated that McQueen had Billy Graham’s bible opened to John 3:16 when he passed away, but no one could confirm it at the time.
A source involved in the new book told the Christian Post that during the research process, they were able to officially confirm that ‘McQueen died gripping Graham's Bible’, but did not confirm if it was open to the famous verse John 3:16.
Do you plan on reading the book or watching the movie?
