Eric Liddell's refusal earlier that week to run on Sunday in the Olympic 100-meter race has stunned the world. Now his incredible victory in the 400-meter race further strengthened his belief in God's promise, "He who honors Me, I will honor." Years later, Liddell would be tested far beyond mere physical ability as a missionary to China.

Homeschool Specialists' Review
There are hidden treasures in these books about our Christian ancestors. They tell tales that build our faith by revealing God at work in the lives of people who placed their trust in him! They are testimonies to how God will work through both ordinary and extraordinary people alike. They celebrate the type of courageous, dedicated, and godly heroes we want our children to admire.
Little pieces of the stories bring back the fondest memories of our homeschool days. I found these books personally faith-building, and I know they have helped shape my children's faith as well. Approx. 200 pages each, softcovers from YWAM.
Wendy Winans5 Stars Out Of 5November 20, 2009Wendy WinansI highly recommend these Christian Heroes, Then and Now series for anyone with young children. We read them before bed and what a difference it has made in our children's lives to hear God's Word lived out in others' lives.

C. Stodden5 Stars Out Of 5December 17, 2006C. StoddenI highly recommend this book. My boys are ages 12-14 and they loved this book. It was a clear story of the missionaries life, and was written in an attention keeping interesting way. Mr. Liddell's life was so amazing it read like a fiction story, but it was completely true! It was a great example of what God can do with a man committed to his service.
