Overview

There are only a handful of modern-day believers who have had as lasting an impact on the world as Bill Bright, who founded Campus Crusade for Christ in 1951 with his wife, Vonette. In My Life Is Not My Own, written before his death in 2003, Dr. Bright contends that his kingdom victories had little to do with his own excellence and everything to do with becoming a “royal slave” to the King of kings.
In this challenging yet encouraging account of his journey toward total surrender to Christ, Dr. Bright examines a perspective common to first-century Christians: The earliest believers did not see themselves as God’s hired servants or as temporary slaves who could work off their debts and go free; instead, they viewed themselves as “royal slaves,” permanent members in God’s household, under His authority and called to His business. Readers will be dared, by the biblical revelation and by Dr. Bright’s personal story, to make the ultimate choice and become slaves of Jesus Christ.
