Businessman, Religious Figure. He was a California businessman who found religion in 1947 and then founded Campus Crusade for Christ in 1951. He saw his organization grow from a small effort to preach the gospel to students at UCLA into a $374 million-a-year venture. Campus Crusade now has a staff of 26,000 people spanning 191 countries. His best known tactic for spreading Christianity was the "Four Spiritual Laws" which condensed the Christian message into 77 words. In the 1970s he plastered "I Found It" signs across the U.S. followed by the revelation that "it" was faith in Jesus. In 1979 he released a two-hour film titled "Jesus" which was funded by billionare Bunker Hunt. It has since been dubbed in more than 650 languages. In 1996 he won the $1 million Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion, a sort of Nobel Prize for his field. He once said, "A Christian can't lose. If we live, we go on serving Him. That's an adventure. If we die, we're in heaven with Him, and that's incredible." (bio by: Ron Moody)
