Grace, Grit & Gumption

Spirtual Revival in South Wales

Geraint Fielder
  • £8.99


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.

"Those who are concerned about the state of the church and society must read this book to see how God can change everything through men and women whom he has called by his grace and to whom he has given the grit and gumption to carry out his work. It is a well written story that warms the heart, and took me right back to Sandfields. Aberavon."

Lady Elizabeth Catherwood

"This is a story that had to be told. These are men who should live in the hearts and minds of a new generation. Their devotion to Christ, their compassion and their indomitable courage stand as both a rebuke and an inspiration. There were giants in the land in those days. May their example breed others such as they in our generation too."

Peter Lewis, Senior Minister, Cornerstone Church, Nottingham
