OUT OF THE ASHES – C T Studd, Cricketer and Missionary
Born into a wealthy, upperclass family 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 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 UK and China.
“Only one life ‘twil soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.” – C T STUDD
