Torchlighters: The Eric Liddell Story
Biographies are a great way to challenge the faith of future generations for the Kingdom of Christ!
Follow along in this account of the life of Eric Liddell! Pressure to follow public opinion couldn't get much stronger. National hero Eric Liddell is Scotland's pride and joy. The entire country is eager for their running celebrity to sprint past the rest of the world and bring home Olympic gold in the 100–meter race. But when Eric makes the stunning announcement that he won't race on Sunday because of his religious convictions, he is soon labeled a disgrace and a traitor.
See how Eric's famous stand during the 1924 Olympics prepares him for even greater challenges as a missionary to China during World War II.
