The Chocolate Soldier

Heroism: The Lost Chord of Christiantiy

by C.T. Studd

C.T. Studd’s famous exhortation about chocolate verses Christian soldiers. Includes several of Studd’s poems.

“This is one of my favorite books. It is a short book with a power-packed punch that issues a spiritual challenge and lights a hunger and fervor in your soul that encourages your heart towards Christ and His call.”

– Jessica, amazon review

A Classic from C.T. Studd

“Difficulties, dangers, disease, death, or divisions don’t deter any but Chocolate Soldiers from executing God’s Will. When someone says there is a lion in the way, the real Christian promptly replies, ‘That’s hardly enough inducement for me; I want a bear or two besides to make it worth my while to go.'”

Reading the words of C.T. Studd (1860-1931)—Britain’s famous cricketer and missionary to China, India, and Africa—is no easy endeavor.

The words are simple but each phrase is packed with a punch that leaves you reeling, convicted, and yet oddly inspired.

If Studd argued that his day was filled with “namby-pamby lukewarm” Chocolate Christians, I fear what he would say about our generation today. And yet his call couldn’t be more needed: be a true soldier of Jesus Christ and plunge headlong into the world in the power of His Spirit, to proclaim the Gospel and live out the true, historic, and victorious Christian life.
