Running the RacePaperback Eric Liddell - Olympic champion and missionary John Keddie
Watch all the Olympic TV you want - but reading this book will grip your soul and encourage you to stand for the Lord Jesus Christ.(more...)
There are many biographies of sportsmen today. They seem to appear every week as sports' practitioners achieve celebrity status at an increasingly young age and are grist to the mill of a media-driven lust for the sensational. There are also many Christian biographies. There are very few which bring together the sporting and the Christian.
Eric Liddell's story has often been told, not least in the 1981 film Chariots of fire. In this Olympic year of 2012 it is well worth telling the story again, in depth and detail and with comtemporary illustrations that bring to life this amazing man who combined a lively faith with great sporting achievements. Watch all the Olympic TV you want - but reading this book will grip your soul and encourage you to stand for the Lord Jesus Christ.
