William R. “Bill” Bright began a person-to-person sharing of New Testament scripture on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles in the 1950s, calling his movement Campus Crusade for Christ.

The organization grew to become an international ministry. His later efforts included calling for worldwide spiritual revival through prayer and fasting.

"The Templeton Prize ... emphasizes the most important aspect of life — the spiritual dimension — upon which all other considerations of life find fulfillment."
