(RepublicanReport.com) – Steve McQueen was one of the most famous figures in Hollywood in the 1960s and 1970s, starring in such classics as The Great Escape, The Magnificent Seven, and The Towering Inferno. The actor died of cancer in 1980 at age 50.

Now, a new book has been released which details McQueen’s discovery of religion before his death. On Sunday, November 8, on Fox News, author Marshall Terrill discussed his research and the various things he discovered about the star.
Terrill explained that McQueen met a born-again Christian some time before his cancer diagnosis and was intrigued by the man’s approach to life. He converted to Christianity himself a short time later. He would go on to become close friends with famed evangelist Billy Graham, who gave McQueen a bible just before the actor underwent his final medical treatment in Mexico.
Hollywood is not a place where traditional values tend to flourish. Nowadays, especially, those who make their living in show business tend to espouse doggedly postmodern points of view. It is therefore encouraging to hear stories like those of McQueen, as they provide a reminder that there is some diversity of belief among the ultra-famous.
