You may be familiar with Eric Liddell from the Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire. The movie tells the remarkable story of his victory in the 400-meter race at the 1924 Paris Olympics—a timeless moment in sporting history.
Most biographies focus either on Liddell the athlete or Liddell the missionary. In Running the Race, author John Keddie brings the two together. This complete portrait reveals an ordinary man who served God in an extraordinary way, and whose adventurous life was marked by deep faith, great humility, and stunning athletic success.
Liddell’s inspiring life story encourages us to prioritize faithfulness to God above all earthly endeavors. If you’re looking for an enjoyable summer read during a time when the 2020 Olympics would have normally taken place, Running the Race is the perfect choice. More importantly, you’ll benefit from learning how Liddell’s athletic success was fueled by his deep love for God and his desire to offer all that he did for God’s glory.
