Born into a wealthy, upper classfamily in England. C.T.Studd had it all. 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 peoplewith the gospel message and challenged Christians to engage in evangelism. Today his pioneering work continues through Worldwide Evangelization for Christ (WEC), the mission agency he founded in 1913.
Filmed in England and China.
