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" 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
"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.
