Bill Bright founded Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) in the early 1950s and later developed the 'Four Spiritual Laws' that has been arguably the most influential visible representation of the Gospel in the last 50 years. Perhaps more than anyone, Bright popularized the phrase "God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life", the first of his 'Spiritual Laws', and one of the most misused and misaprporiated phrases in evangelism. This book outlines the origins of CCC, tracing Bright's life from his childhood and schooling in rural Oklahoma to his conversion and subsequent worldwide ministry, ending with events surrounding his passing in 2003.
Bright was a steady fixture of the Christian scene in the sixties and seventies as the ministry continued to grow (reaching peaks in 1972's Explo '72 at the Cotton Bowl, and the cinematic release of the Jesus film in 1979) and extended to hundreds of college campuses. John Turner documents all of this in depth, while addressing Bright's and CCC's influence on how Christianity was being experienced at the time as well as the impact they have had on modern 21st century Christianity. While avoiding Bright's late life confession that de-emphasizing the reality of hell in evangelistic presentations is the equivalent of spiritual treason, Turner portrays Bright's journey through the late 20th century Christian landscape as that of an influential pacesetter in modern evangelism.
