Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 359-376) and index.
Formatted Contents Note: The last race of the champion -- Faster. How to become a great athlete ; A cup of strong tea, please ; Coming to the crossroads ; I wonder if I'm doing the right thing? ; Dancing the tango along the Champs-Élysées ; Not for sale at any price -- Higher. Good-bye to all that ; There are no foreign lands ; "Will ye no come back again?" ; There's something I want to talk to you about ; Everywhere the crows are black ; The sharpest edge of the sword -- Stronger. The man who isn't there ; No more happy birthdays ; You can run ... but you won't catch us, old man ; Call to me all my sad captains -- What will survive of us is love.
Summary, etc.: Eric Liddell ran-- and lived-- for the glory of his God. An Olympic gold medalist, he would not run on Sunday because of his strict observance of the Christian sabbath, and did not compete in his signature event, the 100 meters, at the 1924 Paris Olympics. Dedicated to missionary work in China, he stayed among the Chinese at the start of World War II. Imprisoned by the Japanese, Liddell did what he was born to do: practice his faith and his sport, organizing games for the children, even racing again. Though Liddell died of a brain tumor just before the end of the war, his story still inspires.
