about

You (the reader) are a small boy living near Athens during the mid-5th century B.C. Your father sends you off to school to learn about the arts and athletics. It is his hope that someday you will honor the family by competing in the Olympic Games. As you train and compete in the games you will get an insider's look at what events are held, such as the pentathlon, running, and wrestling. After reading this book there will be no doubt in your mind that this is definitely a race you'd rather not run.
Michael Ford is BBC journalist who reported on the aftermath of September 11th. A broadcaster specializing in religious affairs, he has recently completed a doctoral thesis in Christian spirituality.
