If you think you have experienced times of personal sacrifice, you will get a degree of measurement from this man's life. C.T. Studd "puts the rubber to the road," so to speak.A well written story of devotion to and for God. Must reading for those looking for inspiration and direction in making important decisions in your life. Great book, about an even greater man.

After reading this book it's clear to me that Studd was a person of great passion and a disciple of Christ. I also was able to read the flaws in the man's walk and how he could be challenging to live or work with. Grubb does a very good job covering the first part of that tone. He lays out Studd's life pretty straightforward. Although, some of the areas he focuses on aren't particularly necessary and are sometimes just there to quote from a letter. While he's willing to highlight and extol Studd's positive qualities, he tends to glance over what are almost troubling items to read. Like the fact that he left his wife and went to serve in Africa or that his wife seemed to have a mental break and he continued to serve in Africa. And while, Studd was upfront with his wife about what to expect with their lives if she married him, it does not seem like the actions of a loving husband and shows wisdom in Paul's desire for some to remain unmarried in their service to the Lord.
There are some amazing stories in this book and I've used some in my teaching. Studd had an amazing impact wherever he went and his work was indeed blessed by God. However, this book sometimes doesn't read quite right. Grubb seems to get caught up in the swell of the love for Studd, which is nice to see with a biographer, however some of the pages just drone on and on. Either that or statements or paragraph are written that have terrible flow and are disjointed.Read more ›
Studd, born in 1860, was one of the best cricket players in the world. He abruptly walked away from a promising athletic career and became a Christian missionary. While some missionaries are content with one difficult assignment Studd accepted three. He served in China for 15 years, India for six years and the final 20 years of his life in Africa.
He realized as a young man that his life was to be one of simple, childlike faith and that his part was to trust and not to do. He was to trust in God and God would work through him. Many said he was making a huge mistake to bury himself in missions. They pointed out the influence he could have with young men in his own country. He asserts that the devil must have used a similar argument to Moses.
He once said, "If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him." This is clearly how he lived his life. His life will be an eternal rebuke to easy-going Christianity. He has demonstrated what it means to follow Christ without counting the cost and without looking back.
