Journeys of Faith : Order from Amazon or CreateSpace

Journeys of Faith is a book of the discovery of our own lives in each life from the Old Testament. You will repeatedly recognize yourself while discovering revolutionary truths about these well-known 'friends' from our family history!

Abraham...Isaac & Jacob...Moses...Joseph...David...Esther...Job......

Journeys of Faith begins with Job, considered the first book written, and sets the stage for the other books. God took Job from seeing life and God from a 'consciousness of separation' to seeing with a single eye...God only! We've heard these stories told in church, Sunday school class, Bible study, Hollywood movies and in our own personal reading as we sought to understand more of God, His people and His ways. Norman Grubb makes these all too familiar stories new. They come alive because he walked the same tests of faith victorious given to these men and women by God. Much of our previous thinking and teaching about these people in Biblical history will 'collide' with and be expanded by Mr. Grubb's sweeping insight and his always upward and reconciling view of life, of God and of His ways. If you have ever questioned God and His actions in the Old Testament, you will find this book will intrigue you...for you are certain to find new meaning in the One who "is upholding all things".

Think on These Things

During the last decade of Norman Grubb's life, in addition to the hundreds of letters he wrote each month, Norman penned several booklets in his quest to leave the body of Christ what had become to him an ever more clear understanding of the Lord's revealings throughout Scripture. I chose Think on These Things as the title knowing he so desperately wanted each one who believed in Jesus Christ to come into their full inheritance described in these writings. In Think on These Things you will find a collection of his last booklets, as well as several transcribed talks.


The Meaning of Life :

The Meaning of Life is the transcription of a series of six talks given by Norman Grubb in the early 1970's to Camps Farthest Out, a non-denominational group of Christians seeking to find the deeper truths of God…of themselves…of life...and how to live it. CFO had numerous guest speakers and this was one of several times Norman shared his `knowings' with them. Norman's passion and joy was always to tell every seeker how a perfect God lives in His perfectly created humans.

In John 17, Jesus' last prayer before He goes to the Cross, Jesus prays for all of those who will believe in Him…that we might be one even as He and the Father are one. Jesus called the promise of His Cross oneness and unity…Norman spoke of the fulfillment of His promise as our union with Christ. In these talks Norman shows us, step by step, how the Father accomplishes His purposes for each of us.

The front cover of this book is a `shadow' of this very truth. It is a picture of Moses' burning bush - a common bush aflame, yet not consumed…a profound image of man aflame with the Living Christ, but remaining fully human! This IS the meaning of life…God living and moving and having His being in and as man…Christ was seen and experienced through the human Jesus two thousand years ago and since Pentecost…Christ, by His Holy Spirit, has come to live again in all who receive Him.

The Japan Talks: Karuizawa, Japan 1954

Norman Grubb gave this series of addresses in 1954 at the Evangelical Missionary Association of Japan and Deeper Life Conference in Karuizawa, Japan. In these eight days of love and fellowship he pours out his own 'missionary heart' to them as only one who has "walked their walk" can do!

We, the reader, also profit from his wisdom as he thoughtfully develops each stage of our union with Christ from the beginnings in our new birth to our entire sanctification and finally as intercessors for our worlds… "Little children, Young men, Fathers.”   Throughout the days shared we find Norman's life motto…"Not God and – but God only!" 

Galatians 2: 20 & 21 in Japanese
written in Karuizawa where Norman preached in 1954

My Dear C.U.M.B.: Norman Grubb's Letters To The Cambridge University Missionary Band 1922-1989

In a college room at Cambridge University in 1920 twenty four young men, who had heard God’s call to the mission field, knew they wanted to keep in touch after they had gone their separate, God-appointed ways. They had formed a close bond during the previous years at Cambridge as they prayed together, studied their Bibles together and shared their faith in Jesus Christ with fellow students, calling themselves the Cambridge University Missionary Band (C.U.M.B.). In the next seventy years these men would be involved in worldwide movements of the Holy Spirit.

Knight of Faith: The letters of Norman Percy Grubb - Volume I and Volume II

Norman Grubb's letters published in three volumes will reveal a remarkable, yet very human, person who spent a lifetime seeking God's face, believing " by virtue of the absurd" and relentlessly sharing in every way possible that which God had given him.  The world will not always recognize the true knight but he is there . . . butcher, baker or candlestick maker . . . or . . . a housewife with a vision of the impossible!

Read an excerpt from  Knight of Faith -

Faith  . . .  Prayer . . .  Intercession

Norman Percy Grubb was born Aug. 2, 1895 in England. Although his father was an Anglican pastor and he was raised in a Christian home when he was a teenager he was asked by a family friend if he belonged to Christ. It was then that he asked Jesus Christ to be his savior.

He was educated at Trinity College in Cambridge and while there had the vision for Inter-Varsity Fellowship, now known as Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship. He served in WW I and was injured and sent home to recover. While in the hospital he was given a tract telling of C. T. Studd’s work in the Belgian Congo. He knew God’s call for him to join this work.

In the months to come he met  and married Studd’s daughter, Pauline and they sailed for Africa to join her father. After serving the Africans Norman found himself in a dire predicament. He found he could not love them as he knew God would have him do. It was then that God gave him and Pauline a verse that would be the cornerstone for the rest of his life’s work...Galatians 2:20.

 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

Norman and Pauline remained in the Congo for ten years. Their first child, Noel, died there. God gave them three more children, Paul, Priscilla and Daniel. Norman remained with the mission group began by C. T. Studd, Worldwide Evangelization Crusade, until his retirement in 1965.

His retirement turned out to be God’s redirection for his life. He traveled the U.S. and England until he was 95 years old sharing Paul’s mystery of the gospel. Christ in you, the hope of glory...presenting every man perfect in Christ coupled with Gal 2:20 was the foundation for him to give to the body of Christ their full inheritance in their salvation.

He was bedridden the last three years of his life and God took him home on December 15, 1993.

Norman wrote many books in his lifetime of a theological nature and also biographies of great men and women of faith as well as numerous articles for magazines, booklets and forwards in others books. Some of his most popular books are Rees Howells Intercessor, C. T. Studd Cricketeer and Pioneer, God Unlimited, Who Am I?, Spontaneous You,  Law of Faith, Touching the Invisible and Yes I Am.   

The vision for this website is to make available to the body of Christ writings of Norman Grubb that have only been available on a limited basis.  Some will be transcriptions of his audiotapes.   Also, Stewart Dinnen, who compiled Summit Living…a daily devotional of Norman’s writings, has given us permission to share it here.
