Eric Liddell: Something Greater Than Gold

This is a biography of the Scottish missionary and runner who won a gold medal in the 1924 Olympics and went on to do missionary work in China. Eric Liddell’s refusal 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 belief in God’s promise, “He who honors Me, I will honor.” Years later, Eric 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.
