Editorial Reviews

This fascinating documentary presents the details of Eric's life, who was perhaps best known as an athlete in the 1924 Olympics, as depicted in the Academy Award-winning film, Chariots of Fire. His story is told by David McCasland, author of Eric Liddell: Pure Gold, Eric's daughter Patricia, and Rev. John Keddie, consultant on Chariots of Fire, along with fellow prisoners form the internment camp in China.

Growing up, Eric was a gifted athlete, excelling in rugby and later in track. He entered the 1924 Olympics in Paris and was favored to win the 100-meter race. But when he learned that he would have to race on Sunday, he refused. Instead, he competed in other races and still brought home gold for Scotland.

Now a national hero, Eric announced his intentions to go to China as a missionary. There he taught Chemistry and oversaw the school's sports programs, sharing his faith at sporting events. He later married, then left teaching to become an evangelist By 1941, China was becoming more unstable and Japan was increasing its control. Concerned for his family's safety, he sent them off to Canada while he remained in China. It wasn't long until the Japanese began moving people into internment camps. There, Eric became friend and mentor to 300 children, many of whom were separated from their missionary parents. Fellow prisoners observed as he rose early each day to read and pray. He continued living out his faith in the camp and was admired and respected by all. In 1944, however, he began showing signs of a possible brain tumor and died the following year.

Eric Liddell was a humble man with a simple and personal faith whose life's purpose was to glorify God. His life and legacy continue to impact people's lives around the world.

This documentary is included as a bonus on the children's DVD "The Torchlighters: The Eric Liddell Story", so I am presuming it is the same program. This program is very well done and I highly recommend it, not only for Christians but for all who are generally interested in history and sports. In addition to Mr. Liddell's Christian beliefs and dedication, topics discussed include: Christian missionary work in China; collegiate sports and boarding-school life in England; the 1924 Paris Olympics; the Japanese occupation of northern China in the 1930s and 1940s; and the internment of foreign nationals by the Japanese during World War II. Commentators include David McCasland (author of "Eric Liddell: Pure Gold"), eldest daughter Patricia Russell, the Rev. John Keddie (consultant to the film "Chariots of Fire"), and several internees of the Weihsien camp who knew Eric Liddell personally. All in all, a fitting tribute to a fascinating and inspirational servant of God!

If I could arrange it, everyone who experienced "Chariots of Fire" would secure a copy of this DVD or a similar media presentation of Liddell's biography. So much more than an Olympic class athlete, Liddell was a role model for anyone who wants a life to really matter in this world and into eternity. His faith, his convictions, his compassion toward others and his motivation led to a life and death that had a profound impact then, and still hold power to inspire us today. My only complaint is the sometimes erratic audio level(s) sometimes evident in interviews included. The positives, however, far outweigh the weakness. I am very glad that I bought "Eric Liddell: Champion of Conviction."

I would highly recommend this biography about Eric Liddell. It is well done and a story worth watching. It was wonderful that his daughter was still alive and could be interviewed.

This documentary was of value to us We all watched and loved "Chariots of Fire"; this biography told about the Eric Liddell's life and struggles after the olympics and his continued work in the missionary field in China. He continued to live what he preached, and that made this DVD something inspiring to watch.
