On July 19, 1924, Eric Liddell was on top of the world. He was the
most famous Briton at the time, having just won the gold in the
Olympic 400-meter race. The story of that race--and the one he
didn't run--was told in the popular movie classic Chariots of Fire.
But what most of us don't know is what became of Eric Liddell in
the years after the credits rolled. As the storm clouds of World
War II rolled in, Eric had already made decisions in his life that
gave him the resilience to stand tall while others fell into
despair. His strength of character led him to choose an uncertain
future in China during World War II in order to continue helping
the Chinese. He lived purposefully even as his world crumbled and
he experienced the horror and deprivations of a Japanese internment
camp. Eric's story is a story of hope in the face of uncertainty,
resilience in the face of unspeakable odds, and inspiring vision of
what life means, even when the final hour comes. The first race you
run isn't your most important one. It's the final race that matters
most. You won't want to miss this story of an Olympian who chose
the better way.
