More than just an athlete!
5 stars By Vicki Lorrimar, Jan 29 2013
I've always loved the story of the athlete behind 'Chariots of Fire.' This biographer shows us that there is a lot more to Eric Liddell than a talent for running and a refusal to compete on Sundays. At the height of his athletic prowess he set competition aside to serve as a missionary in China. His story is wonderfully told here by Mccasland and will be an inspiration to many on how to live a life in service to God.
