With the 2012 Olympics underway, the world is watching as competitors from near and far gather to compete for a gold medal, the single highest honor many athletes hope to achieve.
One Olympic story known the world over is that of Eric Liddell, made famous by the film Chariots of Fire. Although Eric was favored to win the 100-meter dash in the Paris Olympics of 1924, he withdrew from the race rather than compete on a Sunday. He went on to a surprising, and record-setting, win in the 400-meter race.
A true champion who refused to compromise his values, Liddell’s Olympic story is just the beginning of his testimony. He went on to serve as a missionary to China where he lived until his death in 1945. He shared his own daily practice of prayer and discipleship in The Disciplines of the Christian Life, now considered by many to be a classic.
