Amazing Faith, the Authorized Biography of Bill Bright

i might be a bit late on jumping on the bandwagon for this book amongst my C4C peers, but for those of you who are even later...hehehe

this book is the biography of the founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, International, Dr. Bill Bright. it starts from his birth, breezes through his childhood and adolescence, and then starts to get detailed at his conversion.

it's a good read. it's easy and enjoyable for crusaders and non-crusaders alike. the one thing that stands out about Dr. Bill Bright is his amazing faith; not just stuff about Campus Crusade for Christ although there is a lot of about it in there. so anyone can learn a lesson or two about living by faith by reading this book.

i personally find it challenging and inspiring. planning on lending this book out as recruitment for projects, stint, and staff. :P

i'll add in my two cents on this book...namely that...

i highly dislike it.

this isn't to say that i disliked the story of Bill Bright's life; i simply disliked style of the book.

it was dry and uninspiring, not to mention poorly written.

i often joke with my friends about how i'll one day write a better biography.

while bill bright's life is challenging and inspiring, i find the book highly uninspiring and as dry as burnt toast.

i agree with you though shelly, one can learn many lessons about living by faith by reading about Bill Bright's life. However it is because of Bill Bright's exciting life of radical faith that the author has been saved from being deemed a boring and paltry writer.

haha, anyways, just my two cents on the book.
