Excerpt

folly, and determined to know nothing else save Jesus Christ and Him crucified. The result--he made the world turn somersault. His life was a perpetual gamble for God. Daily he faced death for Christ. Again and again he stood fearless before crowds thirsting for his blood. He stood before kings and governors and "turned not a hair". He didn't so much as flinch before Nero, that vice-president of hell. His sufferings were appalling; read them. He trod in his Master's footsteps, and so received--God is always just in His favors--the same splendid compliment that Jesus did. "All forsook him." So there were some Chocolate Christians in those days too. Anyone who forsook Paul must have been made of Chocolate. Doubtless the "CHOCOLATES" excused themselves as they do today.

A very stirring sermon. It really puts the lives of some great men of God into perspective. If you are a follower of Christ, this is a must read and a frightening but necessary call to action.

This book is written by a man who forsook all for his God, and this mans God is also mine and I can say that there are very few people to have ever walked this planet who knew the living God as well as C.T Studd. This book demonstrates his closeness with, and his love for God being rewarded with great wisdom!
