    I had never of C.T. Studd before this book, and by the end, I didn't really care for him. C.T. comes from a rich family. He is a star cricket player and is planning on an easy life being an athlete. While he's in school, his father becomes a Christian. When C.T. and his brothers are home from school, their father constantly bothers them to also become Christians. Eventually, C.T. does, as do his brothers. He becomes more devout through the years and eventually abandons his cricket career to becom I had never of C.T. Studd before this book, and by the end, I didn't really care for him.

He becomes more devout through the years and eventually abandons his cricket career to become a missionary. When his father dies, he inherits a great deal of money, which he promptly gives away. While there's no doubt of C.T.'s impact on the mission field, by the end, I found him extremely annoying and hard headed. He was continually ready to sacrifice his family, his time with them, and his relationships with them for his own beliefs.

    one of the best books that I could recommend within the entire book series! well written, interesting, and moves more steadily than some of the other books. left inspired by C.T.'s boldness, sacrifice, and dedication showing what God is willing to do through just one willing person! would definitely read again and would place this book in the Top 5 of the "Christian Heroes: Then and Now" series! one of the best books that I could recommend within the entire book series! well written, interesting, and moves more steadily than some of the other books. left inspired by C.T.'s boldness, sacrifice, and dedication showing what God is willing to do through just one willing person! would definitely read again and would place this book in the Top 5 of the "Christian Heroes: Then and Now" series!

    C.T. Studd was a star English cricket player who walked away from fame and wealth to become a devout Christian missionary. He served in China, India and at the end of his life in Central Africa. His unquestionable devotion to God challenged many others to live on mission for Christ, and cleared a path for his and future generations to share the gospel in Africa. Part of the Christian Heroes: Then and Now series, this book for those 10 and older is worthy of a read for readers of any age who are C.T.

    It was a joy to read of this man’s undying passion to spread the good news of Jesus to those who had never heard. He lived a life of total submission to God and great sacrifice. What an inspiration!

    Well written and interesting. I hadn’t read anything about C.T. Studd beforehand, this is a great intro for those interested in learning about him.

    So many good things about C.T.’s story. However, the end of his life was not my favorite...even if he had an excuse of his mission for Christ. The story was well written by the Benges as always.

    The more books I read in the series, Christian Heroes: Then & Now, I see more and more patterns in these individuals' lives: 1. Many people do not receive the support or encouragement by those that they love (and are oftentimes christians) when they decide to follow the Lord's leading into the mission field. 2. A few people leave their spouse and/or children to enter the mission field. I'm not sure how I feel about point #2.

A few people leave their spouse and/or children to enter the mission field. I'm not sure how I feel about point #2. We are to go where the Lord leads us, but is it common for the Lord to separate a marriage in order to achieve this? I suppose Peter did. Perhaps that makes Paul's point more clear that it may be better to do the Lord's work if you aren't married. ??? Something to think about.

    Star cricket player from England comes to a faith in God and ventures out to China, then India and finally Africa. He had a huge trust in God. At one point he needs dental surgery and refuses to go back to England for the procedure. He tells the person pleading with him to get the surgery that if God wanted him to have the surgery he would send a dental surgeon to him. And, before long, that's what happens. Great faith and commitment to God. His wife and children are often left behind due to heal Star cricket player from England comes to a faith in God and ventures out to China, then India and finally Africa. He had a huge trust in God.

    I really enjoy the Chrisitian Heroes: Then & Now series. Great books for family read-a-loud time. Inspiring stories of those who serve Jesus. Notable quotes from C.T.Studd "We can trust Him too little, but we can never trust Him too much." "If Jesus Christ be God and died fro me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for HIm!"

    Such an inspiring book. I learned a lot from his life and it is worth imitating as he imitated the life of Jesus. He have sacrificed a lot to gain eternal life. I pray that I will have the same heart - willing to leave everything for the cause of Christ.

    Wonderful! This book was amazing. I have loved every single minute of it. It is a wonderful story of a man in love with God. As Alfred said, "of one this we can be sure. C.T. Studd was no chocolate soldier." This man is a wonderful example of what a Christ-follower should be!! Wonderful! This book was amazing. I have loved every single minute of it.

    I had never heard of C.T. Studd before. We were all inspired by this amazing man of God. He sacrificed everything (and he had a lot) to spread the gospel. This is a new one of our favorites.
