A world record-setting Olympic run wasn't his most important race. Eric Liddell was born to run. With his physical abilities came honor and fame-highlighted by a gold medal in the 400-meter dash at the 1924 Paris Olympics. But it was another race that really mattered to Eric Liddell-the race of life described in the book of Hebrews: Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. At the height of his athletic fame, Eric Liddell traded his track shoes for hiking boots, taking the gospel message to the vast land of China. His life there was cut short, but the shadow he cast was long-and millions today still find challenge from his faithful example.

As part of the acclaimed Sports Virtues series, "Eric Liddell: Humility " discusses the struggles and triumphs of Eric Liddell's life.

As a young child Eric Liddell lived in the exotic climate of China. His parents worked there as missionaries, teaching the good news of Jesus. Eric's life from then on brought him to boarding school in England, university in Edinburgh and the fame of Olympic Stardom in Paris. With that fame came trouble as he struggled to stand up for his Christian faith. Eric's strong belief in keeping the Lord's Day as a day of worship was challenged when his 100 metres race was scheduled for the Sunday. Eric's strength of conviction and his subsequent win in the 400 metres have made him a hero and a role model for many young men and women.

A world-class athlete. A committed Christian. A life of courageous service. Meet Eric Liddell: A man of valor. This Scottish runner bypassed an Olympic qualifying race because it was being held on a Sunday. Then he qualified in a different race and won a gold medal (in world record time!) in the 1924 Paris games. But Eric Liddell left his fame behind to become a missionary in China. His dramatic story, which inspired the Academy Award-winning 1981 film Chariots of Fire, will challenge you to run the race of life mentioned in Hebrews 12:1-2: Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. This easy-reading, novelized biography, first in the Men of Valor series, details Liddell's life and ministry, and the sacrifices he made in commitment to God. You'll be inspired to follow his example, as he followed the example of Christ.

‘Eric Liddell deserves a definitive biography. This is it.’ Sunday Times, Books of the Year Faster. Higher. Stronger. No one has embodied the ideals of the Olympic movement quite like Eric Liddell, star of the Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire. After refusing to compete on religious principle in the event in which he was favourite, the 100 metres, at the 1924 Games in Paris, Liddell won an astonishing gold medal in the 400 metres. But instead of pursuing a path of global fame and fortune, he chose to follow his calling as a missionary in the country of his birth, China, a land which then fell under the iron grip of a brutal Japanese army. Liddell became the inspirational leader of the work camp in which he, like many thousands, was interned, and For the Glory is the full story of his life, of his family, of his fellow prisoners and the terrible hardships and atrocities they experienced in the Far East. This is the tale of a sporting icon, a man of honour and principle who paid the ultimate sacrifice while becoming the moral centre of an otherwise unbearable world.
