Eric Liddle: Pure Gold - The Olympic Champion Who Inspired Chariots Of Fire

David McCasland


Through the inspiring film, Chariots of Fire, the world knows something of the athlete who ran for gold at the Paris Olympics in 1924. Pure Gold does full justice to his sporting career but also tells the larger story of Eric Liddell: his upbringing in China as the son of missionary parents, his deep love for his devoted wife Florence, his zealous and outspoken faith and his tragic death at a Japanese internment camp just months before the end of the Second World War. Pure Gold is widely considered to be the best biography of Eric Liddell. Comprehensive and moving, and supported by 16 pages of photographs and significant supplementary material, it was first published in the US and has not previously had a UK edition.

About The Auhtor: David McCasland is author of the award-winning biography, Oswald Chambers: Abandoned to God and the newly released biography, Eric Liddell: Pure Gold. He also works with Day of Discovery television to produce videos that tell the life stories of Christians who have inspired others. David and his wife, Luann, live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They have four daughters and six grandchildren.
