It was 1924 and the Paris Olympics had caught the imagination of the world.
Eric Liddell was Scotland’s national hero, their pride and joy, a certain winner in the 100 metre race!
But when Eric announces that he will not run in his race because its heat has been scheduled on the Sabbath, opinion soon changed. He was labelled a disgrace and a traitor. However, Eric knows that God honours the man who honours Him!
His famous stand was to prepare him for even greater challenges, as he worked as a missionary to China during World War II. A remarkable story of faith and duty.
