I enjoyed this book so much! The quiet strength of Eric Liddell was amazing. Throughout the book, people described him as the most Christlike person they had ever met. I kept thinking of how much like Joseph Smith he seemed--fun-loving, loved to be with kids, served others no matter who they were, but still a person who felt deeply, whether joy or pain, and someone who enjoyed life. He is truly an inspiration. It is difficult to believe that, as imperfect beings, we can really be like Christ in this life. But Eric Liddell achieved that, and he wasn't a prophet--he was just a normal guy who spent every morning in devotion to God, and then spent the rest of the day proving that devotion. I was really inspired by his dedication and love and strength.
