Editorial Reviews

Jim Ryun

“To know Eric Liddell’s story is to know a true disciple of Christ. With this fascinating book, David McCasland grasps the essence of the Flying Scotsman, who epitomized what it means to choose to set oneself aflame for Christ and let the world stand back in wonder. By his example, Eric Liddell sounded a clarion call for Christians of all ages: Our worth is not measured by worldly accolades but by serving and following Christ. Therein lies the true triumph of life, worth far more than all the Olympic gold medals in the world.”
Madeline Manning Mims

“Brilliant, superbly talented, devoted husband and father, committed friend and an imitator of Jesus Christ are some of the words to describe this ambassador. He changed his world with every ordered step he took.”
Tim Challies

“This biography is well-written, inspiring, and highly recommended."

Truly an exceptional man and quiet hero, who lived a life of service, described by his peers as "an ordinary man who lived an extraordinary life". Book is very well researched, exceptionally written that readers cannot but be drawn into Eric Liddell's short but powerful life. Almost like being there with him, learning from the choices he made, being "taught" by him along the way and inspired by his purity, integrity, discipleship, goodness and joy.
