More About Bill Bright & Jack Cavanaugh
William R. "Bill" Bright (October 19, 1921 – July 19, 2003) was an American evangelist. The founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, he wrote The Four Spiritual Laws in 1952 and produced the Jesus Film in 1979.
Bright held five honorary doctorate degrees: a Doctor of Laws from the Jeonbuk National University of Korea, a Doctor of Divinity from John Brown University, a Doctor of Letters from Houghton Seminary, a Doctor of Divinity from the Los Angeles Bible College and Seminary, and a Doctor of Laws from Pepperdine University.
In 1983, he chaired the National Committee for the National Year of the Bible. He was named the 1996 recipient of the $1.1 million Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion. He donated the prize money to causes promoting the spiritual benefits of fasting and prayer.
He wrote more than 100 books and booklets, and thousands of articles and pamphlets that have been distributed in most major languages by the millions. He was a signer of the document Evangelicals and Catholics Together.
Bright was a co-founder of the Alliance Defense Fund which funds high profile litigation cases on behalf of Christians' First Amendment rights. He was also a co-signatory of the Land letter of 2002 which outlined a just war rationale for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, providing a theological underpinning for the invasion being planned by President George W. Bush.
He produced the Jesus Film in 1979, which was released by Warner Bros. in the United States. It was not a financial success, losing approximately $2 million. While praising its "meticulous attention to authenticity", critics panned Jesus for being "painfully monotonous". The Los Angeles Times called it a "...dull Sunday-School treatment of the life of Christ
Pastor Rick Warren • Author of "The Purpose Driven Life", stated, "The 'JESUS' film is the most effective evangelistic tool ever invented." Every eight seconds, somewhere in the world, another person indicates a decision to follow Christ…after watching the "JESUS" film. Every eight seconds... that's 10,800 people per day, 324,000 per month and more than 3.8 million per year! That’s like the population of the entire city of Pittsburgh, PA coming to Christ every 28 ¼ days. And yet, if you are like many people, you may have never even heard of it.
Bright was survived by his wife Vonette, sons Zachary and Brad, and four grandchildren.
The Rev. Billy Graham released a statement on Bright's death: "He has carried a burden on his heart as few men that I've ever known - a burden for the evangelization of the world. He is a man whose sincerity and integrity and devotion to our Lord have been an inspiration and a blessing to me ever since the early days of my ministry."
Bill Bright currently resides in Orlando, in the state of Florida. Bill Bright was born in 1917.

I Liked Reading This Book Dec 5, 2008
Harrison Quincy Shaw had very little, but his lack of money and material things didn't stop him from giving to others. He cared so much about the less fortunate that even impending danger couldn't keep him from helping them in times of need. Harrison had a heart for people - one woman, in particular. He also had a heart for God, which was why this man, inexperienced in his chosen profession, was determined to give his all as the defense lawyer when J.K. Jarves, a powerful prosecutor who would stoop to anything to win a case, filed suit against Harrison's church. I liked reading this book. It was an intriguing, entertaining, spiritually enlightening page turner. I plan to read more books in The Great Awakenings Series.
I Liked It Aug 22, 2007
Historical fiction can be a slippery slope for some writers. Bright and Cavanaugh did a very good job with this book. Unlike some Christian novels I've read, this one seems true-to-life. It's not all sugar-coated and the dialogue reads true. There are a few minor historical gaffes, but overall this was an enjoyable read.
Not By Might, but By My Spirit! Jul 25, 2007
Harrison Shaw is a legal intern for the renowned New York lawyer J.K Jarves in the year 1857. But when Shaw resigns the internship because on account of philosophical differences, Jarves feels jilted. Moreover, in part because of Harrison's witness, his daughter has come to faith in Christ.
So an incensed Jarves sues Harrison's church and uses the trial as a platform to attack and destroy Christianity, and as an opportunity to quiet the flames of revival sweeping the States.
There is also an interesting romantic link in the book, and several twists and turns in the storyline that give the book depth and substance. This is another great offering from the creative and godly Jack Cavanaugh.
The speeches and articles in the book are also stirring and well crafted. I don't read a lot of fiction, but this is one book I'm going to recommend to others.

If you like stories about courtroom scenes, you will sit at the end of your seat while reading this book. When it is all done with, you cannot deny God's existence and the power of prayer. Pick up the whole "The Great Awakening" series.
Proof Jan 5, 2007
This was a great book. It tied in historical facts, but was fictional which kept my interest. I would recommend this book to anyone who's interested in reading about one of the "Great Awakenings" in our history. Excellent!!
