You may remember the 1981 Academy award-winning “Best Picture” Chariots of Fire. This film told the story of a courageous Scottish runner who won gold in the 1924 Olympics. But there is far more to his inspiring story than the movie revealed. This special 3-part series traces 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 story of this man of deep conviction who lived out his commitment to God even during his final days in a Japanese internment camp during World War II.
