This captivating account of the founding, collapsing and rebuilding of the Worldwide Evangelization Crusade (formerly Heart of Africa Mission) tells of the price paid by it’s founder, C. T. Studd, to bring the Gospel to the world. Norman Grubb, Studd’s son-in- law, provides such insight into this radical man of God. Studd truly burned for Jesus. With his passion came actions which were misinterpreted by some. Not only did he sacrifice great wealth and fame, but his reputation and many friends along the way. Still, he remained faithful; his heart cry became their mission statement: “If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, no sacrifice is too great for me to make for Him.” Norman and his wife, Pauline, took up their commission to continue what Studd began–rebuilding the WEC when all looked hopeless. By applying faith lessons learned from Norman’s close friend, Rees Howells, this commission was fulfilled.
