Item Description...
Overview
One of the greatest heroes of the Cross in this century Eric Liddell, hero of the film Chariots of Fire, risked becoming a national disgrace at the 1924 Paris Olympics when he refused to run on a Sunday. Disqualifying himself from the finals, Britain's hope of a medal was sacrificed as well. But the thinly veiled criticism in the press turned to sensational acclaim when Eric entered-and won-a race for which he was completely untrained, finishing a full five meters ahead of the favorite. He was a celebrity, but the faith which had inspired his courageous stand stirred in him again, and at the height of his fame he announced that he was leaving athletics to return as a missionary to the land of his birth, China. This story of "God's Athlete" makes for exciting reading. From renowned Scottish athlete to missionary in China.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Encouraging  May 2, 2008
Encouraging for all ages - as a read aloud even. The challenges, the excitement, the blessing... My 14 year old enjoyed the book a great deal, too.
 
Disappointing account of a godly man  Feb 17, 2005
Poor writing and condescending (if not racist) attitudes toward the Chinese ruined this book. It was recommended as a language arts book for my 8th grader, but I will not let her read this account. Eric Liddell comes across as a cardboard figure in this book. I will look for another book that will do justice to the story of Eric Liddell's life and his faith in God.
 
A true story of a man who used the gifts God gave him.  Sep 29, 1999
Eric Liddell was (and still is) a shining example of what a person can do if he will use the gifts God has given him/her. It is too bad that this book did not live up to the potential that it could have been. There was not enough documentation of events, and the author used descriptions of Eric and events in his life that possibly were misleading, ie. ...but the thinly veiled criticism in the press turned to sensational acclaim when Eric entered-and won-a race for which he was completely untrained... Anyone who knows the story knows that Eric knew of his being in the 400 meters months in advance of the Olympics. True enough, it was quite a fantastic feat,however, over-sensationalism only lends weakness to this great story.
 
A true story of man who knew what is the right thing to do.  Mar 29, 1999
An inspiring true story ruined by bad writing. Is this book written for children? Did the author do any research because there is no souce documented. Anyhow, this is still a wonderful true story.
