The book is a special edition of Luke’s Gospel together with the real life stories of five athletes whose own lives have been influenced and affected by the life of Jesus Christ:
- Kirsty Balfour, a Scottish lass who unexpectedly discovered a talent for swimming;
- Ernst van Dyk, a South African born without lower limbs who overcame the odds to win gold at the Paralympics;
- Dieudonné Disi, a survivor of the Rwandan genocide who was inspired to run for his country;
- Nick Willis, a New Zealand middle distance runner who candidly talks about the joy of winning and the sorrow of losing;
- Christine Ohuruogu, a British Olympian and record holder who credits God for her success.
More Than Gold was set up by Scotland’s churches, including our Diocese, to co-ordinate Christian activity during the Games.
