Video cover for Eric Liddell

Eric Liddell found his worth in Christ, not in competition.

Two DVDs: The Eric Liddell Story and Eric Liddell: Champion of Conviction

Eric Liddell was the fastest runner in all of Scotland. Quickly, he became a national hero for his running abilities, and all of his countrymen looked forward to the 1924 Olympics in Paris where Eric was expected to win the gold medal. Even though Eric refused to compete in his best event because it took place on a Sunday, he still went on to win two medals: one gold, and one bronze. Due to his fame, Eric Liddell was respected, and he used his life to witness to others about Christ. He sacrificed his comfortable life in Scotland and returned to China, where he lived as a child, to serve as a missionary and teacher with his wife for 20 years. As World War II reached them, Eric surrendered the opportunity to leave China, and stayed to help the wounded. Watch this incredible story of Eric Liddell’s life and see how God used him to bring His Gospel to people living in China.
