From the Back Cover:

A few months ago while eating breakfast in Southampton, England, I asked our young waitress if she recognized the song playing over the restaurant's speakers."I think it's the theme from Chariots of Fire," she said. " Have you seen the film?" I asked. "No," she replied, "but somehow I just know that's the song."

In 1981, this low-budget British film took the world by joyful surprise and garnered four Academy Awards including "Best Picture." Chariots of Fire has become a classic, still inspiring audiences through television and video showings 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.

"To know Eric Liddell's story is to know a true disciple of Christ. With this fascinating book, David McCasland grasps the essence of the Flying Scotsman, who epitomized what it means to choose to set oneself aflame for Christ and let the world stand back in wonder.

"By his example, Eric Liddell sounded a clarion call for Christians of all ages: Our worth is not measured by worldly accolades but by serving and following Christ. Therein lies the true triumph of life, worth far more than all the Olympic gold medals in the world."
--Congressman Jim Ryun, 3-time Olympian, Former world record holder in the mile.

"Brilliant, superbly talented, devoted husband and father, committed friend and imitator of Jesus Christ are some of the words to describe this ambassador. He changed his world with every ordered step he took."
--Madeline Manning Mims, 4-time US Olympian Olympic gold and silver medalist in the 800 meters; 4-time Olympic chaplain
