This book concludes with a discussion of the Crusade's 2003 staff conference, which marked an indelible turning point in the organization's history. Shortly before the end of the conference, Bill Bright died in his Orlando condominium. Over the last decade of his life, he gradually evidenced his mortality, starting with treatment for prostate cancer in 1993. In 2000, beginning to lose his energy, Bright was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable disease that slowly diminishes lung capacity. Unlike Billy Graham, Pat Robertson, and Oral Roberts, he did not groom one of his sons as his handpicked successor, instead turning over Crusade's presidency to Steve Douglass in 2001. Over his last two decades at the helm of Campus Crusade, Bright became an evangelical elder statesman.
