A world record-setting Olympic run wasn't his most important race. Eric Liddell was born to run. With his physical abilities came honor and fame-highlighted by a gold medal in the 400-meter dash at the 1924 Paris Olympics. But it was another race that really mattered to Eric Liddell-the race of life described in the book of Hebrews: Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. At the height of his athletic fame, Eric Liddell traded his track shoes for hiking boots, taking the gospel message to the vast land of China. His life there was cut short, but the shadow he cast was long-and millions today still find challenge from his faithful example.

As part of the acclaimed Sports Virtues series, "Eric Liddell: Humility " discusses the struggles and triumphs of Eric Liddell's life. As with each story in the Sports Virtues series, this book assigns a virtue to a celebrated athlete or coach, and uses that person's story to help the reader achieve that virtue for him or herself. What emerges after reading these stories is not only a greater understanding and appreciation of the virtues that these icons needed to get through life, but also an inspiration for the reader. Each story is followed by a small quotation from literature to amplify the meaning and application of the virtue, and each story is also followed by a series of study/review questions and other interactive activities to help the reader further understand the virtue and how to achieve it. This book is for people of all ages, but it makes for the perfect gift from parents to children or from adult mentors to their students. Other books in the Sports Virtues series include: Lou Gehrig: Appreciation Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo: Compassion Roberto Clemente: Dedication Susan Butcher: Determination Pele: Devotion John Wooden: Discipline Mike Krzyzewski: Encouragement Cal Ripken, Jr.: Endurance Walter ""Red"" Barber: Fairness Dennis Byrd: Faithfulness Hank Aaron: Fearlessness Amos Alonzo Stagg: Honesty Eric Liddell: Humility Arthur Ashe: Integrity Bill Bradley: Intelligence Jim Valvano: joyfulness Dan O'Brien & Dave Johnson: Kindness Dean Smith: Loyalty Harvey Penick: Modesty Branch Rickey & Jackie Robinson: Nobility Althea Gibson: Persistence Clarence "Big House" Gaines, Sr.: Respectability Joan Benoit Samuelson & Wilma Rudolph: Strength Vince Lombardi: Toughness Gertrude Ederle: Triumph Ken Venturi: Trust The 1980 Men's and 1998 Women's United States Olympic Hockey Teams: Unity Eddie Robinson: Visionary Happy Chandler: Wisdom

A world-class athlete. A committed Christian. A life of courageous service. Meet Eric Liddell: A man of valor. This Scottish runner bypassed an Olympic qualifying race because it was being held on a Sunday. Then he qualified in a different race and won a gold medal (in world record time!) in the 1924 Paris games. But Eric Liddell left his fame behind to become a missionary in China. His dramatic story, which inspired the Academy Award-winning 1981 film Chariots of Fire, will challenge you to run the race of life mentioned in Hebrews 12:1-2: Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. This easy-reading, novelized biography, first in the Men of Valor series, details Liddell's life and ministry, and the sacrifices he made in commitment to God. You'll be inspired to follow his example, as he followed the example of Christ.
