Within A Yard Of Hell
“I got down on my knees and said thank you to God. And right then and there a peace came into my soul. I knew then what it was to be ‘born again’ and the Bible which had been so dry to me before, became everything to me” CT Studd

Charles Thomas Studd was a brilliant opening batsman for the England cricket team, we could certainly do with him now! He played in the first ever Ashes test match against Australia in 1882 but it was only the precursor to his life’s work. While he was still a young man, CT Studd committed the whole of life to serving God. This is how he defined his calling as an evangelist “Some want to live within the sound of a church bell but I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell”

This remarkable man of God devoted his life to the work of the Gospel in China. He married and had four daughters, inspiring him to continually defend the rights of Chinese baby girls who were consistently discarded as worthless. CT Studd the evangelist was the same as CT Studd the cricketer, an overcomer and a winner.

“Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly out without having blown the trumpets loud and long for our Blessed Redeemer. At the very least let us see to it that the devil holds a thanksgiving service in hell when he gets the news of our departure from the field of battle” CT Studd
