As part of the acclaimed Sports Virtues series, "Eric Liddell: Humility " discusses the struggles and triumphs of Eric Liddell's life. As with each story in the Sports Virtues series, this book assigns a virtue to a celebrated athlete or coach, and uses that person's story to help the reader achieve that virtue for him or herself. What emerges after reading these stories is not only a greater understanding and appreciation of the virtues that these icons needed to get through life, but also an inspiration for the reader. Each story is followed by a small quotation from literature to amplify the meaning and application of the virtue, and each story is also followed by a series of study/review questions and other interactive activities to help the reader further understand the virtue and how to achieve it. This book is for people of all ages, but it makes for the perfect gift from parents to children or from adult mentors to their students.

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 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.

The untold and inspiring story of Eric Liddell, hero of Chariots of Fire, from his Olympic medal to his missionary work in China to his last, brave years in a Japanese work camp during WWII Many people will remember Eric Liddell as the Olympic gold medalist from the Academy Award winning film Chariots of Fire. Famously, Liddell would not run on Sunday because of his strict observance of the Christian sabbath, and so he did not compete in his signature event, the 100 meters, at the 1924 Paris Olympics. He was the greatest sprinter in the world at the time, and his choice not to run was ridiculed by the British Olympic committee, his fellow athletes, and most of the world press. Yet Liddell triumphed in a new event, winning the 400 meters in Paris. Liddell ran--and lived--for the glory of his God. After winning gold, he dedicated himself to missionary work. He travelled to China to work in a local school and as a missionary. He married and had children there. By the time he could see war on the horizon, Liddell put Florence, his pregnant wife, and children on a boat to Canada, while he stayed behind, his conscience compelling him to stay among the Chinese. He and thousands of other westerners were eventually interned at a Japanese work camp. Once imprisoned, Liddell did what he was born to do, practice his faith and his sport. He became the moral center of an unbearable world. He was the hardest worker in the camp, he counseled many of the other prisoners, he gave up his own meager portion of meals many days, and he organized games for the children there. He even raced again. For his ailing, malnourished body, it was all too much. Liddell died of a brain tumor just before the end of the war. His passing was mourned around the world, and his story still inspires. In the spirit of The Boys in the Boat and Unbroken, For the Glory is both a compelling narrative of athletic heroism and a gripping story of faith in the darkest circumstances.

If you have picked up this book, chances are you are a committed follower of Christ. Like many searching Christians you are tired of religious busywork and showy piety. You long for authentic worship and meaningful service. You came to Christ with deep expectations of transformation and service, but those passions have been starved by shallow theology and superficial relationships. You are looking for something more. You are ready to sink your mind into what the Bible says about the call of God, the priesthood of all believers, and what it means to live for Christ and his kingdom. The two-volume Living in Tension offers in-depth spiritual direction on the crucial issues shaping a theology of ministry. This is not a book for pastors only. Webster intentionally blurs the distinction between pastor and congregation. This book is for all believers who take God's call to salvation, service, sacrifice, and simplicity seriously. Living in Tension provides need-to-know insights for every congregation. Pastors will find that this passionate and practical theology translates well into their own lives and into the life of the church.

La regina e i suoi amanti

Un titolo elisabettiano (ne ebbe di amanti la Regina Vergine) per un tentativo di rotta, di circumnavigazione di un mondo così tondo da prevedere ogni tipo di situazioni, ogni gioco di contrasti: la gloria e la vergogna, l’arroganza e l’umiltà, il martirio e la joie de vivre, l’ascesa e la caduta, il miracolo offerto da chi è stato toccato dal demone e i risultati frutto di umanissimi sforzi. Più che una storia ordinata dell’atletica, Regina di tutti gli sport, il libro di Giorgio Cimbrico propone momenti, ricordi - di riporto e diretti -, profili di belli e dannati, capaci di lasciare il segno nello sport che li accomuna e li anticipa tutti nel repertorio delle attitudini e dei gesti, nel desiderio del confronto, nelle motivazioni che germogliano. Così, l’'atletica, più che regina, diviene la smisurata strada maestra che percorre l’India: invita a percorrerla, per percorrersi dentro.
