Nurtured in the lap of comfort, educated at Eton and Cambridge, the hero of the sport-loving public, C. T. 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. Despite having established a reputation as one of the greatest cricketers of his time (both losing and winning the original 'Ashes'), it was the illness of a brother which brought Charles Studd face to face with realities and the transitoriness 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. His name remains particularly linked with the evangelisation of the Congo Basin. This best-selling biography of a great Christian was written by Studd's son-in-law, Norman Grubb.;It is an exciting description of Studd's life, and demonstrates the enormous impact that he had on his contemporaries, whilst the story of his labours and adventures makes an epic of faith and courage against great odds that will be an inspiration to all those who rejoice in a tale of high endeavour.
Grubb's biography of C.T. Studd highlights some of the labours and adventures of his life that makes his faith an epic and inspiration to those who read it.
Norman Percy Grubb was born August 2, 1895. After serving in World War I he went to Cambridge University and while there he joined a Bible study and prayer group called Cambridge InterCollegiate Christian Union and had his 'call' from God to join the mission field work of C.T. Studd in the Congo. As he was sharing his call with his fellow CICCU-ites the Lord gave Norman the vision to begin groups like theirs in other universities. Thus was born Inter-Varsity Fellowship (I.V.F.), also known as Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (I.V.C.F), which today is worldwide. Norman married Pauline Studd iA
