Eric Liddell, a gentle, kind, and loving man of God
on 25 June 2011
An amazing and sensitively written book which I couldn't put down, and which had me feeling I was there with Eric sharing his experiences with him. He was blessed to bless others and gave his all to a troubled China.
Eric was very much more than an outstanding athlete, he was a true Christian, following Jesus, helping those in need, and bringing God's love to everyone he met. His life is an example to us all.
He achieved a lot in his short life, living through much war conflict with many "narrow scrapes"; but how desperately sad he wasn't able to spend his last few years with his wife and three daughters whom he obviously adored and missed terribly.
Eric's heart was in China, and that is where he spent a significant part of his life, and where his body was laid.
A really wonderful book, and a prized possession, which I shall be re-reading many times.
