More About Jack W. Hayford, Dr. Gary Smalley, Charles R. Swindoll, Max Lucado, Crawford Loritts, Isaac Canales, Howard G. Hendricks & Bill Bright
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.

Pure Bullcrap Nov 12, 2005
5 Secrets to a successful marriage, and sex, is not one of them. Among the many idiotic writings you'll find in this hand book for ass-backwards 21st century religious nut jobs. Read the parts about the lady on the airplane from the church of satan and about the son coming home from college with an earing if you want to laugh at how pathetic and blow hardy the idiot who wrote this garbage is, if their was ever an excuse for book burning, we've found it.

better titled How to Ruin A Marriage Aug 6, 2004
Bright exhorts men to do things they should be doing in their marriages anyway, while advising them to force their wives, willing or unwilling, into a traditional role in which they will have no true voice in the relationship. Women are reduced to unintelligent, subservient roles with men who are probably seeking to cure their own ineptitude as husbands - and who may already be abusive. Bright even exhorts the man to "be gentle but firm with her" when you make the announcement that you are taking a traditional role of husband henceforth, as if your wife is an unruly child. Avoid at all costs.
Get with the times Feb 17, 2003
As a young, college-educated Christian, I saw this book (and the movement of PK for that matter) as a last-ditch attempt to preserve patriarchal ideals popularized in the 40s/50s.
In one chapter, Dr. Tony Evans claims that the "sissification" of men in America is to blame for ALL of our problems. About these "feminized males," he writes, "Somehow, many men got the idea that the definition of manhood has to do with how many women they have conquered and the number of children they have sired." I think Dr. Evans needs to reevaluate his definition of feminine, because those attributes sound distinctly unfemale. Or does he really think that females are overtly licentious?
There are a number of purportedly "true" stories relayed in the book which in no way could possibly be true. These "promise" keepers can't even keep a promise about honesty and tell genuine stories with less zing.
All in all this book seems to be just another painful example of someone trying to make a buck off of Christianity. It happens every day, on TV, at the bookstore, and in church.
** I gave the book 2 stars because it is entertaining.
Excellent Book Sep 14, 2001
This is an awesome book. If the men in my country (the United States) would take to heart the principles in this book, a whole lot of unhappiness and misery would be eliminated.
