Eric Liddell: Olympian and Missionary
Heroes of the Faith series, book 12
Available on backorder
For many people, having a movie made about your life would be the ultimate accomplishment. But not for Eric Liddell, subject of the film Chariots of Fire. Though he won a gold medal in the 1924 Olympics, Liddell was far more concerned with running the race of the Christian life. He is remembered best for refusing to compete on Sunday, but after his brief track career, Liddell pursued his true goal in life: serving as missionary to China. He died in a Japanese internment camp during World War II, at the age of forty-three. Though his life was brief, Eric Liddell remains an inspiration to many.
