    Eric Liddell - Are you Ready? is book number nine in the Little Lights biography series published by Christian Focus 4 Kids. The book briefly touches on different points in Eric's life beginning with his time at boarding school. While he enjoyed athletics and using his gift of running, he longed to return to China one day as a missionary like his parents. As Eric grew to adulthood, he was considered by some to be the "fastest man in Scotland." There was even talk of him competing in the Olympics. While the Olympics was certainly something Eric would have to train for, he continued to train for another calling on his life, which was to tell people about Jesus Christ. Eric would go on to win the 400 meter event at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris. In 1925 Eric would return to his beloved China. Eric married his wife (Florence Mackenzie) in 1932. They were blessed with three daughters. During World War II, Eric sent his wife and children to Canada, so they would be safe. Eric continued his work in China and was eventually imprisoned. During his time in prison he continued telling others about Jesus Christ. Eric would be called to be with the Lord on February 21, 1945.

    I enjoyed sharing Eric Liddell - Are you Ready? with my young children. The reading level of the book is appropriate for parents to read aloud to children ages 4-5 and for kids to read to themselves at ages 6-7. This would be a great book to share with your children ages 4-7 in relation to the upcoming 2012 London Olympics. As the title suggests, the book focuses on Eric being ready, contrasting his preparation for the Olympics and his preparation to serve God. This theme in the book would serve as a good catalyst for discussion on life's priorities, especially things that may get in the way of serving our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
