"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."--Jim Ryun, 3-time Olympian and former world record holder in the mile
