Near the beginning of Amazing Faith: The Authorized Biography of Bill Bright
, author Michael Richardson writes about Bright's founding of Campus Crusade for Christ, one of the largest Christian organizations in the world. Richardson quotes Bright as saying, "I'm often asked if I'm surprised at the remarkable growth and size of Campus Crusade for Christ. My answer: No, I am not surprised, for the vision God gave that midnight hour in the spring of 1951 was of such great magnitude--far greater than anything we have yet experienced. The best is yet before us." Bright's single-minded commitment to evangelism fills every detail of his days--he even signs his letters "Yours for fulfilling the Great Commission in this generation." And Amazing Faith
is an intimate, easy-to-read account of Bright's extremely popular ministry. Most chapters are less than five pages long, and they are written in a style that is straightforward and down to earth. The biographer had excellent access to Bright's friendships with Christian leaders such as Billy Graham, his home life and his relationship with his wife Vonette, and all the highlights of his career (including winning the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion in 1996). His biographer, in return, has given Bright--and readers--a comprehensive, entertaining, and inspiring book.
