Chariots Of Fire by Vangelis is part of My Morning Kickstart Music List.
This is a wonderful piece of music, and the film is a wonderful presentation of history.
Chariots of Fire – the film
Chariots of Fire is a 1981 British historical drama film.
It tells the fact-based story of two athletes in the 1924 Olympics:
- Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God, and
- Harold Abrahams, an English Jew who runs to overcome prejudice.
The original phrase “chariot(s) of fire” is from 2 Kings 2:11 and 6:17 in the Bible.
