I loved the movie chariots of fire this book takes that a step further and tells a lot details about Eric Liddell s life, and how he faced even greater things than the Olympics while in China as a missionary during the Sino Japanese war and WWII, and eventually died in an internment camp there, but not without living am amazing life of faith He was a leader an a man of God wherever he went and whatever he did.
I read this book to my eight year old son for a class he is taking in our homeschool community It is my first real exposure to the man Eric Liddell This book is so touching It inspired me to learn about this giant of a man I m so grateful to the mentors of the class for assigning this reading I was brought to tears a couple of times as I was introduced to the integrity of this man I asked my son what he thought was really amazing about Eric Liddell and this was his response There are two things [...]
These Christian Heroes are great I loved this one
Boring used to read it when I was in sunday school But not for me any
This was an extremely readable account of Eric Liddell s life Maybe not as fascinating as the movie about him, Chariots of Fire, but close For me, the events in his life after the 1924 Olympics were of great interest He left fame behind to go to China as a missionary an unusual man
While this one is less compellingly told than some of the others in the series, I would let my kids read it, because it doesn t glamorize the missionary life.
An amazing story with a very unexpected twist at the end Cannot wait to watch Chariots of Fire
Reading these stories will greatly increase your faith they did ours Eric Liddell gives the word hero a new meaning.
Great content and inspiring story Not the highest quality writing, but I really enjoyed what I learned.
Incredible man Very easy read.
Eric Liddell was a man of great character and integrity, a man whose commitment to the Lord was steadfast Although his claim to fame was the 1924 Olympics and the movie Chariots of Fire, he was much than that, as this inspiring read bears out Though written for children ages 10 , this series of biographies is great for adults too Approximately 200 pages, each book provides a moderately thorough view into the lives of dozens of Christian heroes If you want to learn a bit about missionaries and [...]
The Hero Of Chariots Of Fire His Life in FullAn engaging and complete story of Eric Liddell The gold medalist from Scotland featured in the movie Chariots of Fire who lived a rarely principled life sorely needed in our morally crippled modern realm.Inspiring but not without tragedy Also educational with regards to the world of China and the Japanese occupation of China during WWII.They also interred foreigners which is rarely mentioned in our politically correct culture A read worth your time t [...]
great to learn the true story behind one of the heroes of Chariots of Fire
I do my reviews in the form of a letter, which is why they are written like this.Dear Janet and Geoff Benge, I owe you guys a huge thanks for writing this book I had to write a one page paper on a Christian athlete for P.E and I chose this book I remembered having seen a movie about him Chariots of Fire , and I knew this would be an easy read, so I chose it I read it all in one day, and I felt touched and inspired by this man That summer, I watched Chariots of Fire , and I loved the movie, even [...]
Great biography of a great man who lived an exceptional life due to a great partnership with a great God He did his best, God did His best and together they accomplished a lot Winning gold medals, being successful in every aspect of life, overcoming his shyness to preach the gospel, being a man of character, making decisions out of a place of prayer, and being loved by so many people whose lives he had touched A stark reminder of how much we can accomplish through virtues such as patience, disci [...]
Eric Liddell Something Greater Than Gold is a fantastic book full of faith and adventure It uncovers the true story in his lifetime that many miss It goes beyond the Olympic Scotsman into his life as a missionary during the war in China The book is a thriller It begins with his life in Scotland as a Olympian and the challenges he faced and continues on to the most challenging thing he would ever do become a missionary to China His character was perseverance, humility, kindness, and love He chang [...]
Wow I found out I really hadn t known much about Eric Liddell after reading this book When his name came up, I always thought runner and left it at that But he was so much Eric Liddell Something Greater than Gold was a really good story The parts about him running were actually a lot interesting than I thought they would be and his family life and missionary work also quite remarkable He lived in China for parts of his life, and later became a missionary there during a war I never knew that An [...]
Eric Liddell won in the Olympics running the 200 meter and 400 meter races He made himself a huge career with running He decided that he would not run on a Sunday because it is a day of rest and he wanted to go to church that day The entire country was in uproar to hear that He threw away a pretty much certain gold medal, and he was not likely to win in the other races However he was able to compete in the One day his Life suddenly changed completely He decided to quit his running career, and go [...]
Eric was an Olympic gold medalist from Scotland turned teacher missionary in China His character is one to be commended and he was an inspiration to many He risked his life many times to help the enemies and in the end, he found himself in a camp far away from his wife and children he never met his last child.
This is a decently inspiring biography for kids and young teens, but it lionizes Eric Liddell so extensively that adults will probably be left wondering what the authors cut out The writing style is very basic at some points even amateurish and to top it all off, this edition of the book is full of typos Still, Liddell did have an interesting life, so the book isn t a waste of time.
Eric Liddell did much than run a memorable Olympic race This was a well told biography that is well suited to reading aloud to children, while not being beneath the dignity of adults This series of missionary biographies was a sold addition to our home and church libraries.
This is a fascinating story, but that is no credit to the author since the story is true The writing was very simplistic and about as dull as could be, considering the story Granted, the book is geared towards kids, but kids and Eric Liddell s life deserve a better written book than that.
A delightful narrative of Eric Liddell s life In the aftermath of the feelings of loss following Lee Kuan Yew s death, Eric Liddel s biography left me with slightly different feelings that of a hope in the God that Liddell gave his life in service to
The writing was average but the man being written about was phenominal I read this as a follow up to watching Chariots of Fire The movie was much engaging than the book but I learned an incredible amount about the rest of Eric s life, which is inspirational.
Quick and easy read about an amazing life of Christian love and service It was interesting to read about his life after Chariots of Fire ended, up to his death in China in a 2nd WW Japanese internment camp
Another volume in the Christian Heroes series, this book presents the life of the Scottish missionary kid who won a gold medal in the 1924 Olympics and then headed back to China to continue the family line of work It s an inspiring story of endurance and faithfulness.
An interesting story, inspirational story Could have been written better, so just 3 stars But worthy of reading in the sense of learning from someone else who was willing to sacrifice and be firm in their choice to do so Loved that.
This was so amazing I ll put it on my top 1,000 book list.
Excellent basic story telling cut up into readable chunks A great life, well lived.
