Christian Church history produced a number of men whose lives reflect the tenacious fervor of lions. In Living Like Lions each man challenges us to rise above the contemporary definitions of masculinity and embrace God’s goodness and godliness. These short Christian biographies reveal the tenacity, strength and love necessary to lead in the home, community, and church. Watch as a monk stands face-to-face against the emperor of Rome – a bishop defies armed soldiers – an artist resurrects hope for the lost. Living Like Lions is perfect for both casual reading and small group study. Learn about each of the following spiritual giants:Oswald ChambersC.S.

My nose was buried in books when I was a child. The habit never waned. By the time I entered into seminary, I fell in love with biographies. Getting a master’s degree crammed full of church history and missions history allowed me to read story after story of great men who influenced the church and history. The narratives I read stuck with me. At the same time, I was witnessing a world in which the definition of masculinity was changing with rapid pace. Old notions of resolute men with strong hearts and a sense of responsibility were becoming antiques of an irrelevant age.I couldn’t stand it. This movement couple with the stories of men from ages past inspired me to write Living Like Lions. The book is a challenge for anyone who reads it, partly because the stories of the men in chronicles are inspiring and partly because the relevance of those mens’ lives is now renewed in the face of changing times. I hope that men gain a renewed sense of purpose and courage through this book. And I hope that, as the years pass, I will always be reminded of the great before me so that I can encourage the great men within the hearts of the generations who will follow me.
