Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas (publisher)

The lion is a ferocious protagonist rippling with fervor and strength. Loyalty to the pride, surgeon-like strikes and a keen sense of the world around him make the lion one of the most feared animals in the world.

At the same time, the lion is an affectionate beast who lets his guard down among those he loves.

History is witness to a handful of men whose lives resembled the tenacious fervor of lions. The men of Living Like Lions are a rare breed of tenacity, strength and love.

A monk stands face-to-face against the emperor of Rome. A bishop goes toe-to-toe with soldiers. An inventor creates the world's biggest wheeled-machines. An artist resurrects the hope his of fellow creators.

Each story reveals bravery, commitment and masculinity. Each man challenges us to rise above the contemporary definitions of masculinity and to embrace godliness.
