Bill Bright and Campus Crusade for Christ: The Renewal of Evangelicalism in Postwar America

If you’re looking for a book that will either vilify or canonize Bill Bright and Campus Crusade for Christ, this is not the one for you. John Turner has crafted an honest account of one of the fastest growing and most influential religious movements of the last half century. A critical insider to parachurch evangelicalism, Turner participated in Young Life and InterVarsity while in high school and when he was a student at Middle bury College. His sister brought him to Campus Crusade events when he visited her at Cornell. At Notre Dame, where he pursued doctoral studies, he researched this book under the direction of George Marsden, whose work has prompted a number of young scholars to delve into the relationship between Christianity and American higher education.
