Norman Grubb was a well-known evangelical Christian missionary to Africa, following in the footsteps of his father-in-law C.T. Studd. The son of an Irish clergyman, he became a decorated war hero for his service as a lieutenant of the Gloucester regiment in World War I. After the war, he attended Trinity College, Cambridge, and married Pauline Studd. During his time in the Belgian Congo, he translated the New Testament into the African trade language, Bangala. Norman ultimately became the British and General Secretary of the Worldwide Evangelization Crusade, serving in that capacity until 1965. He was instrumental in the formation of the Christian Literature Crusade and the beginnings of Intervarsity Fellowship. Following many years of teaching, writing, and travel, he died at age 98 on December 15, 1993, in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania.
Mr. Grubb is the author of Rees Howells, Intercessor, the acclaimed and inspiring biography of the Welsh coal miner who became the founder of the Bible College of Wales. Rees Howells, now in its 15th edition, has been translated into more than twenty languages and has sold over ten million copies worldwide. Mr. Grubb authored more than twenty-five books and pamphlets. He spoke at the Presidential Prayer Breakfast and taught at lay conferences such as Faith at Work.
Zerubbabel Press has obtained the publishing rights to several of Mr. Grubb’s out-of-print titles. To date, eight have been printed: Who Am I?, The Law of Faith, Yes, I Am, God Unlimited, The Liberating Secret, The Deep Things of God, The Spontaneous You and Mr. Grubb’s autobiography, Once Caught, No Escape.
The central concentration of Mr. Grubb’s later works is “Christ in you, the hope of glory,” and it was his drive to bring the reality of this truth to seekers after “the deep things of God” within the body of Christ. Zerubbabel Press is delighted to be able to make his works available again, and hope that his books will be discovered by a new generation of readers.
