Summary

Eric's (1902-1945) refusal earlier that week to run on Sunday in the Olympic 100-meter race had stunned the world. Now his incredible victory in the 400-meter race further strengthened his believe in God's promise, "He who honors Me, I will honor." Years later, Eric Liddell would be tested far beyond mere physical ability as a missionary to China. His character, perseverance, and endurance are a challenging example for all who would obey the call to bring the gospel to the nations.

The Inspiring Life of Eric Liddel

Since my mother was one of the children that were interned at Weihsen concentration camp, I have grown up with a profound admiration for the man that she called "Uncle Eric". While having heard many stories about his life, this book did not disappoint.

Great story and easy to get through in a day

There was no struggle to finish this one. Great story material and the reader made for easy listening. I enjoyed the story - worthwhile if you like biographical stories like Boenhoffer, Hudson Taylor, or Brother Andrew.

WOW!

I was beyond impressed! I have always liked the movie Chariots of Fire. I thought surely there was a biography of Eric Liddell out there somewhere.
Well done! Narrator was awesome!
Story is even better.
Even though Eric has been face to face with Jesus for 76 years, he is inspiring people on this earth today!

Amazing story

This story was great! I couldn’t help but memorizing almost the whole story by heart. This story had many heart stopping suspenseful moments, just the type of story that I love. I’m about to watch the movie mentioned in the last chapter and I know that if it was made about Eric Liddell, then I know it’s going to be an amazing story

Chariot's of Fire 2.0

Although this is a short history of Eric Liddell, it's a must listen. I kind of knew that Eric was a national hero in Scotland and the UK at that time, but clearly I didn't know how much of a hero. I definitely did not know the extent of his Christian testimony to the world and to the Christian world. I am so glad that I bought this and learned the rest of the story.
