Cricketer Grubb 300

CT Studd - Pioneer and Cricketer

Author: Norman Grubb

Original biography of the founder of WEC International. Translated into over 40 languages, Norman Grubb's biography of CT Studd highlights some of the labours and adventures of his life that makes his faith an inspiration to those who read it.

Nurtured in the lap of comfort, educated at Eton and Cambridge, the hero of the sport-loving public, CT Studd, whose Cambridge career had been described as 'one long blaze of cricketing glory', created a stir in the secular world of his youth by renouncing wealth and position to follow Christ. He had established a reputation as one of the greatest cricketers of his time (both losing and winning the original 'Ashes'), but it was the illness of a brother which brought Charles Thomas Studd face to face with realities and the transitory nature of worldly riches and fame.

He abandoned everything to become a missionary in China, as the leader of the 'Cambridge Seven'. After spending fifteen years in China and six in India, he devoted the rest of his life to spreading the Gospel message in Africa, founding the Worldwide Evangelisation Crusade in the northeast of the Belgian Congo.

First published by WEC in 1933, this edition is published by CLC Publications in 1985, 224 pages.
