The definitive biography of one of Britain's greatest ever Olympians

From the Back Cover:

In 1981, the low-budget British film Chariots of Fire took the world by joyful surprise and garnered four Academy Awards including Best Picture. Chariots of Fire has become a classic, still inspiring audiences around the world. But like most movies, it freely blends dramatic invention with the facts.

This book is the life story of Eric Liddell before and after his Olympic triumph at Paris in 1924. Who was he? What shaped him and forged the integrity that became the hallmark of his life? With the athletic world at his feet, why did he leave Scotland and spend the rest of his years in China as a Christian missionary? And who was the high school girl he met there who captured his heart and brought such joy as his wife?

Shy and retiring by nature, Liddell was by no means a charismatic personality, yet he drew people to him in a remarkable way. As a runner, his presence at a Scottish track meet often meant an extra 5,000 spectators beyond the normal crowd. But instead of using his athletic fame for personal advantage, it became his platform to serve others.

For those who already admire Eric Liddell, and for those who want to meet a man who "lived better than he preached," this book is written.

About the Author:

David McCasland is author of the award-winning biography, Oswald Chambers: Abandoned to God and the newly released biography, Eric Liddell: Pure Gold. He also works with Day of Discovery television to produce videos that tell the life stories of Christians who have inspired others. David and his wife, Luann, live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They have four daughters and six grandchildren.
