In our time, few people, if any, have influenced more


people directly and personally, as well as indirectly
through the multiple ministries of Campus Crusade and
through his writings, than Bill Bright. According to
George Gallup, Jr., "He has reached people in depth and
in numbers matched by few others in history." -Gordon
Klenck, first recruit on CCC staff in 1952 (p40)

在我們的時代,很少人(若有的話)比白立德直接
和親自地-以及簡接地透過學園傳道會不同的事工
和他的寫作-影響了更多的人。如蓋立普所言:「歷
史上很少人在接觸人的深度和數量上能比得上他。」

1 The crystallized form of the "by faith" concept taught in



The Four Spiritual Laws booklet was a great discovery for

4 the Korean church... This had been an unrecognized
5 concept in the Korean church... The Four Spiritual Laws
6 booklet taught such a simple concept of salvation "by
faith" that it brought a revolution in the Korean church.
-Dr Joon-Gon Kim (p20)

四律小冊子所教導的「憑信心」概念的濃縮版對於韓
國教會來說,是個重大的發現 ... 這在韓國教會中向
來是個未被確認的概念 ... 四律小冊子中對於「憑信心
得救」這簡單概念的教導帶來韓國教會的一場革命。

1 "My experience in working with Bill over the last 33 years



has proven, without a doubt, that he lives by faith in the

4 faithfulness of God. Regardless of circumstances, he
5 believes that by faith we can overcome any obstacle...
6 Nehemiah believed God for the impossible to become
possible. Bill follows the same process of living by faith
in the God of the impossible." -Thomas Abraham (p32)

過去我與白立德同工了卅三年的經驗無疑證明了,
他靠神的信實去憑信心生活。不管環境如何,他都
相信,我們憑信心可以勝過難處 ... 尼希米相信神能
使不可能的成為有可能。白立德經歷同樣的過程,
靠那位「不可能的神」憑信心生活。

1 "Bill believes and puts his faith in God first, above



everything and everyone else. All that we see now in the

4 Campus Crusade ministry is the by-product of his faith.
5 He takes the promise of God at face value and
6 demonstrates his faith in these promises without seeing
tangible evidence of the outcome." -Thomas Abraham
(p33)

白立德相信神,並以信靠神為首,超過任何的人和
事。我們目前在學園事工裡所看到的一切,都是他
信心的副產品。雖未看見果效的實質證明,他仍會
不帶疑惑地相信神的應許,並顯出他對這些應許的
信心。

1 "I have heard Bill cite Psalm 23 many times... If we



follow our Shepherd in faith, we shall not want for

4 righteousness, relief, food, recognition, joy, or
5 resources. My times are in His hands, and whatever
6 happens, I can put my faith and trust in Him. Bill
demonstrates with his life, words, and actions that
victory is not always easy, but by faith, victory is sure
and certain." -Thomas Abraham (p32)

我聽過白立德多次引用詩篇廿三篇 ... 我們若憑信心


跟隨我們的牧人,我們不會缺乏義、安慰、食物、
認受、喜樂和資源。我的年日在祂手中-無論發生
任何事。我可以把我的信心和信靠投放在他裡面。
白立德用他的生命和言行表明勝利不總是容易的,
然而,因著信,勝利是肯定和必然的。

1 "Over all these years, Bill has been obedient to the call

of life of faith... Without knowing what was ahead, Bill

4 was willing to step out from his business and surrender
5 all that he owned to God. He and Vonette signed a
6 contract with God... He had great confidence in God,
knowing that God alone is sufficient and that He had
promised to provide everything he and Vonette would
need for the rest of their lives." -Thomas Abraham (p32)

多年以來,白立德順服過信心生活的呼召 ... 不清楚


前面是怎樣,白立德卻願意踏出一步,離開從商的
事業,並把他擁有的一切呈獻給神。他和白薇娜向
神簽了一份合約 ... 他對神大有信心,知道單有神就
足夠,祂已應許供應他和白薇娜餘生一切所需的。

1 The Brights never owned a home. They have paid rent in



every place they have lived. They do not own a car. Over

4 the years, a friend who owns a car dealership has
5 allowed them to drive his demonstration cars. They do
6 not even have a savings account. (p286-287)

白立德夫婦從未擁有過一個居所。他們所住的各處
都是租住的地方。他們不擁有一輛車。多年來乃是
一位擁有車行的朋友容許他們駕駛陳列的汽車的。
他們甚至沒有一個儲畜戶口。

1 In his mind and heart, Bill believed that the more Spirit-

filled staff and volunteers involved in ministry, the

4 greater the potential for more love, more evangelism,
5 more discipleship, more equipping and helping to fulfill
6 the Great Commission... He would say, "To truly be a
leader in kingdom work, one must be continually
dependent upon and filled with the Holy Spirit. (p142)

在白立德的心思裡,他相信同工和參與事工的義工
愈是被聖靈充滿,就愈有潛力產生更多的愛、更多
佈道、更多門徒造就、更多裝備,並協助完成大使
命 ... 他會說:「要真正成為國度工作上的領袖,就
必須持續地倚賴並充滿聖靈。」

1 One of Dr. Bright's most deeply held beliefs is that God



wants every individual to share his faith in Christ. What

4 stands in the way of all Christians living fruitful,
5 satisfying, and productive lives? The key... is that every
6 Christian needs to know how to be filled and controlled
by the Holy Spirit... The result would not only be more
evangelism (and hence more new believers), but a happy
and satisfied life for the believer. (p278)

白立德博士其中一件最深信的事,就是神願意每個
人都分享他對基督的信心。是甚麼在攔阻著所有的
基督徒活出多結果子、令人滿足和有果效的生活?
關鍵 ... 就是每個基督徒需要知道如何被聖靈充滿並
支配 ... 結果將不單是更多的佈道(因此產生更多的
初信者),信徒更擁有一個快樂而滿足的生命。

1 "The third event that dramatically impacted my life was



meeting Dr. Bill Bright... He and those he was discipling

4 seemed the special kind of men who were portrayed in
5 the Book of Acts. Their Christian lifestyle was a vivid
6 lesson to me. I learned firsthand and experienced for
myself the life of being filled with the Holy Spirit by
faith." -Dr Joon-Gon Kim (p19-20)

「第三件戲劇性地影響我人生的事件就是遇上白立德
博士 ... 他和他造就的人就像使徒行傳所描述的那種
特別的人一樣。他們的基督徒生活方活是給我一個
活生生的學習榜樣。我第一手地學習並自己經歷到
憑信心被聖靈充滿的生命。」
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 If there is any message that Bill Bright preaches or



teaches more often than the gospel of salvation in

4 Christ, it is the message of how to be filled... by the
5 Holy Spirit through faith. He reasons that if he can teach
6 others how to appropriate the power of the Holy Spirit in
their lives, they in turn can lead others to Christ, and
this will result in the multiplication of evangelism. (p67-
68)

若有任何的信息相比藉基督得救的福音是白立德更
經常傳講和教導的,那就是如何憑信心被聖靈充滿
的信息了。他的理由是,若果他能教導其他人如何
在生活中支取聖靈的能力,他們就能夠帶領別人歸
主,這將會產生佈道的倍增。

1 The real genius... of the ministry of Bill Bright and



Campus Crusade for Christ is not its commitment to the

4 Great Commission, nor its tools..., nor in its strategies...
5 The real genius has been the emphasis on the ministry of
6 the Holy Spirit.... The Great Commission is the work of
the Holy Spirit. To be filled with the Spirit is not just
victory over sin, holiness, and Christlikeness. It will also
be shown in living out our identity as God's missionaries
to the world. (93-94)

白立德和學園傳道會真正出眾之處不是對大使命的
委身、不是它的工具 ... 也不是它的策略 ... 真正出眾
之處就是著重聖靈的職事 ... 大使命是聖靈的工作。
被聖靈充滿不單單是勝過罪、聖潔和像基督,也會
透過我們在世上活出神使者的身份而顯出來的。
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Dr. Bright has frequently commented that he needs just



two booklets to start a conversation with anyone: The

4 Four Spiritual Laws and the Holy Spirit booklet. Either a
5 person needs to know Christ, or the person knows Christ
6 but may not understand the spiritual abundance and
power available to the believer through the Holy Spirit,
or the person should be encouraged to share the content
of these booklets with others.(77)

白立德經常分享到,他只需要兩本小冊子去和任何
人展開一段對話:四律小冊子和聖靈小冊子。若非
那個人需要認識基督,就是那人認識基督卻不明白
信徒可以透過聖靈所能享用的屬靈豐盛和能力,或
那人需要被鼓勵去向別人分享這些小冊子。

1 The vision that God had given Bill was never simply for

the college campus. The campus was to be the primary

4 source of manpower for getting to the world. When I
5 joined the staff of Campus Crusade in 1960, all Crusade
6 had was a campus ministry, but the motto on the wall in
the front of the chapel where Staff Training was held
said, "Win the Campus for Today. Win the World for
Christ Tomorrow." -Ted Martin (61-62)

神給予白立德的異象從來不單單是為著大學校園;
校園是產生人力資源往世界去的主要源頭。當我於
一九六○年成為學園同工時,學園所擁有的全部是
一個校園事工,不過在同工訓練舉行的小禮堂前面
的牆上有這格言:「贏取今日的校園,就為基督贏取
明日的世界。」
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 If anyone asks about the overall goals of Campus



Crusade, without reservation the answer will be to give

4 everyone a chance to hear about Jesus. More than just
5 talking about it, Bill has demonstrated this commitment
6 throughout his life. It doesn't matter whether he is in a
taxi, in the supermarket, or walking down the street, he
always tries to pass the message of the gospel to
everyone, everywhere. -Thomas Abraham (36-37)

若有人問學園的總體目標是甚麼,他會毫無保留地
回答:就是給予每一個人機會聽聞耶穌。他不只是
純粹談及這件事,白立德更在他整個人生中展示了
這份委身。不管他是在計程車上、在超市裡、或是
在街上行走,他總嘗試在各處、向每個人傳遞福音
的信息。
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Dr. Bright was not enthusiastic about evangelistic



productivity simply for its own sake... His goal was to

4 take the gospel to every nation, every tribe --- and
5 ideally, to every human being during his lifetime. (279)

白立德博士不純粹為了佈道成效緣故而熱衷於佈道
成效 ... 他的目標是在有生之年把福音帶給各民各族
-並理想地-帶給每一個人。
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Bill has often said that Campus Crusade is only a leaf on



a twig... of the vine, which is the Church, the Body of

4 Christ. But he firmly believes that Campus Crusade is to
5 be a catalyst to the rest of the Body of Christ,
6 encouraging all believers everywhere, all denominations,
all Christian ministries to be involved in the task of
fulfilling the Great Commission. -Ted Martin (59)

白立德經常說學園只是萄葡樹枝條上的一塊樹葉。
那萄葡樹就是基督的身體。但他堅定相信學園對於
基督身體的其餘部分來說,是要成為一個催化劑,
鼓勵各處的信徒、所有的宗派、所有的基督教事工
都參與在完成大使命的任務裡。
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 "Campus Crusade is not primarily an evangelistic



organization but is rather a discipling movement. It

4 exists solely to disciple leaders who are committed to
5 reaching and discipling other leaders to fulfill the Great
6 Commission in this generation. Consequently, the focus
of Campus Crusade is leadership, leadership, and more
leadership." -Stanley Oakes, quoting Bill Bright (268)

學園主要不是一個佈道機構,而是一個門徒造就的
運動。它存在單單為著造就領袖成為門徒,使他們
委身得著並造就其他領袖成為門徒,在這一代完成
大使命。因此學園的焦點是:領袖、領袖和更多的
領袖。
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Frequently, when speaking to groups of students who



were involved in ministry with Campus Crusade for

4 Christ, he would challenge them to dedicate their "time,
5 talent, and treasure" to the task of world evangelization.
6 What's more important, he would challenge his listeners:
You can either achieve worldly success in this life or
receive a warm welcome from Jesus, hearing the words,
"Well done, good and faithful servant." (282)

很多時候當向著一群參與學園事工的學生演講時,
他會挑戰他們把本身的「時間、才幹和財寶」奉獻在
普世福音化的任務上。更重要地,他會挑戰聽眾:
你可以在今生取得世上成就,或是得到耶穌親切的
歡迎,說:「做得好,良善又忠心的僕人。」
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 One may also ask, "Why does a movement like Campus



Crusade for Christ have or need an emphasis on prayer?"

4 Dr. Bright explains, "We are engaged in a spiritual
5 ministry, a ministry of changing people's lives, a
6 supernatural ministry ... We must depend upon the
supernatural resources to accomplish supernatural
objectives." (105)

有人也會問:「一個像學園傳道會的運動為什麼擁有
或需要一份對禱告的看重呢?」白立德博士解釋:
「我們正在參與在一個屬靈的事工、一個改變人生命
的事工、一個超自然的事工 ... 我們必須依賴超自然
的資源去達至超自然的目標。」
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 He challenges all believers, "If you were to take seriously



the promises of God and begin to claim by faith in prayer

4 all that you have been promised, you would experience
5 miracles in your life and ministry, multitudes would be
6 introduced to our Lord Jesus Christ, the whole course of
history would be changed, and you would help fulfill the
Great Commission during your lifetime." (106)

他挑戰所有的信徒:「若你真的認真看待神的應許,
又開始憑信心在禱告裡支取神所應許你的一切,你
會在你的生命和事工上經歷神蹟,許多人會被介紹
認識我們的主耶穌基督,整個歷史進程會被改變,
而你也會在你有生之年協助完成大使命了。」
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Brad Bright, Bill's son, said of his father, "Whenever



things came into his life that I regarded as problems, his

4 first response was always to go to his knees and say,
5 'Father, what do you want me to do?' It really was just
6 another opportunity to see God work, whether it was big
or small." (103)

白立德的兒子布拉德談到他父親時說:「每當一些我
看為問題的事情臨到他生命,他的首個回應總是跪
下來,說:『父啊,你願意我做甚麼呢?』那卻只
是另一個看見神作工的機會,不論事情的大小。
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Dr. Bright feels so strongly about the priority and



necessity of prayer that he he has said that someday he

4 wants to give himself completely to prayer because it is
5 the answer to everything -- funding, administration,
6 results. He believes, "Absolutely, beyond any shadow of
doubt ... the most important thing we as staff can do
individually and corporately is to pray." (107)

白立德博士對於禱告的優先性和必需性有著強烈的
感受,他甚至曾經說:有一天他想將自己全然地在
禱告上擺上自己,因為那是對一切事情的答案--
財務需要、行政、果效。他相信:「絶對而不容懷疑
的是 ... 我們作為同工個別和集體地可以作的最重要
的事,就是祈禱了。」
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Many disciplines characterize his life, but the one that



seems to impact and support all others is prayer. This

4 was true from the very inception of Campus Crusade for
5 Christ, as the movement was actually birthed through
6 prayer. He says, "Vonette and I and our friends
undergirded the ministry in constant prayer. We often
found ourselves praying, 'Lord, where do you want us to
launch this ministry?'" (99)

他生命中有眾多的操練,但有一個操練似乎影響並
支持著其他一切的操練,那就是禱告。學園傳道會
一開始就是這樣,因為這個運動實際上是透過禱告
而誕生的。他說:「白薇娜和我以及朋友們當時是以
持續的禱告來托著這個事工。我們經常禱告說:
『主啊,你想我們在哪裡開展這個事工?』」
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 "Prayer is one of the most important factors in successful



evangelism and follow-up... God is 'not willing that any

4 should perish'... God wants all of His children to be more
5 and more like Christ in every way. Therefore, according
6 to 1 John 5:14,15, we know God will hear and answer if
we pray for multitudes to become Christians and for
many to become disciples, because we know that we pray
according to God's will." - Bill Bright (99)

「禱告是成功佈道和栽培的其中一個最重要的因素 ...
神不願意一人沉淪 ... 神願意他所有的兒女都在各方
面更像基督。所以根據約翰一書 5 章 14-15 節,若
我們祈求叫許多的人成為基督徒並成為門徒,我們
知道神會垂聽並應允。」-白立德

1 "The training of Korean Christians by Korea Campus



Crusade for Christ began in rural areas during the 1960s,

4 usually as a packaged training program... Due to that
5 training, some churches experienced a growth of up to
6 ten times as many people. We selected 300 churches
throughout the nation and trained them as model
churches. All these churches were aflame like the Church
after Pentecost." -Dr Joon-Gon Kim (20-21)

韓國學園傳道會對韓國基督徒的訓練始於一九六○
年代的鄉間,通常是以一包裝好的訓練課程進行 ...
因著那個訓練,有些教會經歷了人數上達至十倍的
增長。我們在全國揀選三百個教會,訓練她們去成
為「模範教會」,這些教會全部都像五旬節後的教會
那樣火熱。

1 I know that even after I had received a doctoral degree



in theology, I was still not very effective in presenting

4 the gospel to groups or even to individuals. Then I came
5 on Campus Crusade staff and received training. As I went
6 into sororities, fraternities, and college dormitories to
present Christ, I began to see many people respond in
faith to the gospel. (63)

我明白即使我取得了神學的博士學位後,我仍然不
太能夠有果效地向一群人甚至是個人去分享福音。
後來我加入了學園成為同工,並接受訓練。當我進
到女生會、男生會和大學宿舍裡傳講基督時,開始
看見許多的人以信心回應福音。

1 Effectiveness is actually a written "value" of Campus



Crusade for Christ...For fifty years, Bill has been in the

4 process of finding what works best... A good working
5 definition of effectiveness is: that which brings the best
6 result for the effort and funds expended. Campus
Crusade is always searching for faster, better, less
expensive ways to get the good news of Jesus Christ to
those who have not heard. (133)

事實上「果效」是學園傳道會的一個明文的「價值觀」
... 五十年來,白立德一直在尋找甚麼帶來最佳效果
... 「果效」的一個良好可行的定義是:按著付上的努
力和金錢,能帶來最佳結果。學園總是尋找著更
快、更好、更廉宜的方法,把耶穌基督的好消息帶
給那些還未聽聞的人。
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Reaching and recruiting leaders has also been a goal of



the ministry from the beginning. The first outreach Bill

4 and Vonette made on the UCLA campus was to student
5 leaders... Many staff members came to Campus Crusade
6 from leadership positions in the secular world. They
brought leadership expertise to help many of the
ministries achieve a greater level of effectiveness. (133)

向領袖傳福音並招募他們加入也是事工從一開始的
一個目標。白立德和白薇娜在加州大學洛杉磯分校
的首個傳福音對象就是學生領袖們 ... 很多加入學園
的同工是來自俗世中的領導位置的。他們把領導學
的專門知識帶來,幫助了眾多的事工達至更高水平
的果效。
Faith 信心 Power 能力 Vision 異象 Prayer 禱告 Ministry 事工

1 Dr. Bright has always had the philosophy that it is our



responsibility to sow, but the results are up to God. He

4 also believes that among those who respond to the
5 message are those who will become 30-, 60-, and 100-
6 fold producers... It was these men and women that he
wanted to disciple as leaders in the workforce - those
who would also sow broadly and bring in the harvest.
(229)

白立德博士經常認定一個哲理:我們有責任撒種,
結果是交給神的。他也相信,在那些回應福音信息
的人當中,將會有成為三十倍、六十倍和一百倍的
生產者 ... 他想造就這些男男女女成為工人領袖,使
他們也會廣泛撒種和收割。

1 In the thirty-five years that I have been associated with



Bill Bright, one phrase has been the theme of his strategy

4 formulation: "small plans do not inflame the minds of
5 men." (299)

在三十五年和白立德共事的年日裡,有一句話已成
為他制訂策略時的主題:「小型的計劃是不會叫人們
的心思火熱起來的。」
