Publisher's Description

More than just a history book, and perhaps even a romance, this story of the beginnings of CLC International includes the very human, the comic, the daring, the unlikely, and the impossible, in this deadly serious work of taking Christ to the nations through the printed page.

Author Bio

Norman P. Grubb was born in London, the son of an Anglican vicar. He joined the British Army as a lieutenant in World War I. After the war he went to Trinity College, Cambridge, where he had the vision for Inter-Varsity Fellowship (now UCCF: The Christian Unions), whose goal was the sharing of the Christian message with other students. Later he married Pauline Studd, daughter of the famous British cricketer and missionary to Africa C.T. Studd. He left for the Belgian Congo with Pauline in 1920 to follow in the footsteps of his father-in-law. While there he was struck by the words of Galatians 2:20: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me” (KJV). This message was to become central to his philosophy. Before C.T. Studd’s death in 1931, Norman and Pauline returned to England where they ran the mission from its London headquarters. Under Norman’s leadership and direction the mission flourished and became known as the Worldwide Evangelization Crusade (now WEC International). Retiring in 1965, Grubb moved to the U.S. and spent his remaining years traveling and sharing the message of “Christ in me.” He died at WEC’s U.S. headquarters in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, at the age of 98.
