Product Description

Eric Liddell's life began and ended in China. Born in Tientsin as the second son of missionary parents, he died in a Japanese internment camp at Weihsien a few months before the end of the Second World War.
Through an inspiring film, the world knows him as the athlete who ran for gold at the Paris Olympics in 1924. This is the larger story of the man who went the distance in life, and of the woman who ran with him in his greatest race.

Editorial Reviews

"To know Eric Liddell’s story is to know a true disciple of Christ. With this fascinating book, David McCasland grasps the essence of the Flying Scotsman, who epitomized what it means to choose to set oneself aflame for Christ and let the world stand back in wonder. By his example, Eric Liddell sounded a clarion call for Christians of all ages: Our worth is not measured by worldly accolades but by serving and following Christ. Therein lies the true triumph of life, worth far more than all the Olympic gold medals
in the world."

"Brilliant, superbly talented, devoted husband and father, committed friend and an imitator of Jesus Christ are some of the words to describe this ambassador. He changed his world with every ordered step he took."

"This biography is well-written, inspiring, and highly recommended."
