Eric Liddell Finish The Race

Full Product Description

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. But 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. But his life was so much more than winning tapes and starters' orders - his whole life was a race for God. This race took him back to the country of his birth - China. This country became the country of his death in a Prisoner of War camp. The man who became known affectionately as the 'Flying Scotsman' in the end lived and died in China - thousands of miles from his native land and his athletic conquests.

"I have just had the great pleasure of reading "Finish The Race" from cover to cover. I thought it was exceptionally well written. There were actually some details that I had not heard before which made the book even more precious to me. I am deeply grateful for the interest you have taken in my father's life and the writing that you subsequently undertook. Your labours have added a great deal to the legacy my father left me and I am enriched because of you." -
Maureen Moore (Eric Liddell's daughter)
