WEC International has been publishing books and booklets since it was founded by C T Studd (an England cricketer) in 1913. Today this work is curated by WEC Publications, based west of London in the UK.
This book is about the ascent of Len's personal inner Everest. He says 'My experiences of God are also pages of a living theological thesis. Often I have been confused by the loose usage of spiritual terminology; sometimes baffled by the fixed terms of reference to special "blessings". Thus I look back through forty years of walking with Jesus as the predominant Personality in my life.'
This book is about the foundations - about the basic principles of effective Christian service on which WEC International is founded, which have kept us steady amidst the strains and stresses of 75 years of spiritual conflict.
Helen Roseveare has selected a true story from each of WEC's 75 years [up to 1987] to illustrate its growth from one man in one place to to over 1200 missionaries and countless national workers the world over.
C T Studd was an outstanding cricketer, and studied law at Cambridge. But he left fame and fortune to work with Hudson Taylor in China. Many years later he was called by God to Africa. This was the beginning of what became WEC International.
These colourful quotations, taken from hundreds of his personal letters, present a challenge to all-out commitment to Jesus Christ.
Accounts of people who have advanced in their walk with God - their fears and fumblings, and their movement towards vital faith. They are rewarding stories because they are honest, down-to-earth testimonies about things that are usually left up in the air.
