DVD The Story of Eric Liddell: Olympic Champion, Man of Courage
You may remember that the Academy award-winning “Best Picture” Chariots of Fire told the story of a courageous Scottish runner who won gold in the 1924 Olympics. Now you can discover the rest of his inspiring story.
This special production from Day of Discovery brings you Eric Liddell’s life from his boyhood and rise to athletic fame through his years of missionary service in China. You’ll hear from his friends, colleagues, and family members as they bring to life the legacy of this man’s deep conviction who lived out his commitment to God – even during his final days in a Japanese internment camp during World War II. Who was the first Chinese-born person to ever win an Olympic gold medal? Scotsman Eric Liddell! And he is still honoured there today! Find out how when you order The Story of Eric Liddell – Olympic Champion, Man of Courage.
Eric Liddell’s daughters, Patricia, Heather, and Maureen, return to China to visit the places where their father lived and died.
