The Remarkable Mr. LiddellArticle

“Eric was buried in the prison camp cemetery in Weihsien in Feb. 1945 and was greatly mourned, though the Christians knew that it was a case of “absent from the body, present with the Lord” (2 Cor. 5:8)…How does this challenge us today? Surely in nothing less than what Eric said in his own day: “It is not sufficient to admire Christ; it is not sufficient to love Him. ‘For me to live is Christ,’ cried the Apostle [‘and to die is gain’ (Phil. 1:21)]. That is the spirit in which work for God has to be done.””
