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.

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.
