The book is written for year olds, with a recommendation to read it aloud for ages Author John Keddie certainly paints the picture of a man whose life was God-controlled. Eric Liddell was born to missionary parents in China, and sent to Britain for education with his brother. It was in Britain that Liddell made two things clear to the world: One, he could run.
Two, he loved Jesus and there would be no running, for him, on the Sabbath. Liddell began to speak as a witness for Christ, drawing crowds as a result of his success on the track.
As I read, I found myself wondering if all the uproar over the Sabbath was truly called for. I found myself pondering the fact that we refer often to the Ten Commandments, yet in Western Christianity we have a tendency to hold the Sabbath in such low regard. I found myself agreeing with Liddell that this is, indeed, an important observance—not in legalism, but out of respect for our Lord. Liddell committed himself to missions in China, rejoining his family in Tientsin.
He was to serve in China for the next 20 years. During that time he married and had two daughters. In the midst of World War II and the attack on China by the Japanese, Liddell sent his wife pregnant with their 3rd daughter and his children to safety in Canada. Liddell stayed behind, ministering to both the Chinese and to the other missionaries. Eventually, he was imprisoned by the Japanese in an internment camp.
Liddell and the other missionaries imprisoned with him manufactured a highly structured little society within the internment camp, caring for each other in every way. Eric Liddell never did see his family again. He died in the internment camp, rejoined to the Lord he loved so much. What becomes apparent is that Eric Liddell was faithful, steady, and committed. He loved Jesus with his whole life, and he lived out that love in service to those around him. They were mesmerized by the life of a man who loved Jesus enough to take a stand.
These sparked some interesting discussions for us. John W. Most interestingly, Keddie came to faith in Christ after reading a booklet written about Eric Liddell.
With her body battered and broken and her back teeth kicked out, Helen survived when others did not. But she survived to endure further months of terror.belgacar.com/components/gsm/retrouver-son-numro-de-portable.php
After several months of captivity and cruelty, Helen and a few others were released and sent back to England for a long recovery. After fifteen months, went back to Africa, to Zaire, building more hospitals and training more medical workers. When Helen went back to England years later, she stayed active speaking at schools, GCU gatherings, and churches. When someone wanted to make a film of her life, she traveled back to a warm welcome in Zaire and was thrilled to see how the work was progressing.

Helen Roseveare On His Majesty's Service by Irene Howat | NOOK Book (eBook) | Barnes & Noble®
One of my main concerns is to find books that exalt God's role in what people were able to accomplish instead of setting up the people as impossible paragons of virtue. In that regard, I thought this book did pretty well. It didn't present Helen as perfect but showed how she struggled with faults throughout her ministry.
It's written as a novel with dialogue invented but as far as I can tell I have started reading children's biographies hoping to find some good ones to add to my church library. It's written as a novel with dialogue invented but as far as I can tell it stays pretty true to the facts.
I thought the writing was pretty good, not great, but pretty good. Two things I wish were different: I wish when Helen struggled with pleasing people that it had been brought out that she should have been seeking to please God and realizing that God was pleased with her in Christ, instead the lesson was taught that Helen should've just realized her own worth as a person and that she was likable the way she was.
There were also a couple of times when girls were breaking the rules and it was treated like innocent mischief instead of like sin.
