As a result of a dream, Lehi sends his sons back to Jerusalem to obtain sacred records on plates of brass from a wicked religious and military leader named Laban. Laban refuses to give up the records and steals Lehi’s wealth when Laman attempts to use it to buy the plates. Laman and Lemuel rebel and beat their younger brothers—until an angel appears and saves them. Nephi miraculously obtains possession of the plates by following the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Lehi and Sariah are grateful and delighted when their sons return with the plates, and Lehi immediately begins to study their contents.

“On Wings of Eagles is the amazing story of 1924 Olympic Gold-medalist Eric Liddell, a Scottish man who felt the call of God to be a missionary and teach in China. But it would not be without cost. After the Olympics, Liddell made the journey back to China to teach, despite the raging war and cruelty of the Japanese soldiers.” (Description by The Dove Foundation)
“This film is about endurance and, especially, hope, which is the central theme of the film. Liddell undergoes cruelty at the hands of the soldiers and watches others undergo the same treatment. His great victory at the summer Paris Olympics was quite a contrast to what happened to him during World War 2.
Joseph Fiennes gives an excellent performance as Liddell. The story, rich in character development, is based on true events. Eric, also known as the Flying Scotsman, is now commemorated in a monument in China featuring these words from Isaiah: ‘They shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary.'” (Description by The Dove Foundation)
