John Pugh, railway worker, Seth Joshua, donkey driver, fighter and Frank Joshua, teacher were all converted in the Welsh valleys. Pugh became a dedicated pastor who planted and grew several large churches before becoming involved in the 'Forward Movement'. The Joshua brothers had independently, and with no training, started a venture of their own which saw great growth amongst the English language dominated industrial areas. It became the sort of pilot scheme that Pugh was looking for and they joined forces.

The title of the book is taken from Pugh's plan to reach the unchurched industrial wasteland of Splott, next to Cardiff. He advertised the fact that he wanted 'To secure men of GRACE, GRIT AND GUMPTION' for the work.

"Not many people could tell the fascinating story of these three mighty men as Geraint Fielder has done. His book is a significant contribution to our knowledge of the Forward Movement in Wales in the generation just before Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones heard its appeal for evangelists and left London for Aberavon... The book is full of relevance for our own times."

Eric Alexander, Conference speaker and formerly minister St George's Tron, Glasgow for 20 years

Grace Grit and Gumption is an eloquent tribute to three men whose preaching led to the founding of the "Forward Movement", and evangelical movement that profoundly affected Welsh society in the twentieth century. Incidentally, it was that movement's appeal for evangelists that Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones responded to positively in 1927 and which took him to Aberavon.
