COMING THIS AUTUMN
OUT OF THE ASHES: C.T. STUDD CRICKETER & MISSIONARY: Duration 48 minutes 25 sec
C. T. Studd had it all. Born into a wealthy upperclass family in England,
he studied at prestigious schools, including Cambridge University,
and went on to become one of the country’s most celebrated athletes.
But Studd realised that fame and flattery would not last,
and as a Christian, he sensed a profound calling to forsake
the things of the world and live for the world to come.
Studd described his zealous, uncompromising faith as
“muscular Christianity.” He reached countless people with the gospel
message and challenged complacent Christians to engage in evangelism.
Today his pioneering work continues through Worldwide Evangelization
for Christ (WEC), the missions agency he founded in 1913.
This docudrama explores Studd’s extraordinary life and teaching through
expert interviews and engaging re-enactment scenes. Filmed in England and China.
“Only one life ‘twil soon be past.
Only what’s done for Christ will last.” - C.T. STUDD
