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:
Augustine of Hippo
Ambrose of Milan
John R. Mott
Johann Sebastian Bach
Dr. Francis Collins
“It’s a biblical truth that as iron sharpens iron so does one man sharpen another. Like a blacksmith with his anvil, Duren strikes eachpage harder than the last. He takes the very marrow of these men andsaturates each page, paragraph, and sentence.
All of mankind has something God-given living inside them, waiting to beignited, waiting to be awoken. Living Like Lions doesn’t just seek tokeep us accountable for our sins and successes– it seeks to wake us up. It seeks for us to live a grand adventure.” – Melissa Perea, author of Seeds of Hate and Dismantled Sun
“When one imagines a lion, a majestic animal supremely in control comes tomind. With Christ we can be in control. We can find our role and moveforward in love just as these 20 men did, as so artfully described by J. R. Duren. I highly recommend this book to inspire you to do justthat.” – Doug Cornelius, author
“With so manyexamples of lives poorly lived out there, it is so refreshing toglimpse the inner workings of 20 lives that made a difference. Although many are familiar names, as I moved through the book I began torealize how little I knew about several, to say nothing of those I hadpreviously not known.”
It is not simply areader’s digest synopsis of the individual, but the art of the book isin J.R.’s relentless bringing forward of the key points as challengesinto our lives.” – Tom Trotter, missions paster
From the Author
I believe there is a strong, decisive man in each one of us. Years of mistakes and regret bury that strength and decisiveness. So, we fight our way through life feeling like something just isn’t right; that something is broken.
I don’t want to live like that, and I know most men don’t want to live like that. Each man’s in Living Like Lions pushes us to uncover the masculinity we’ve lost.
My hope for you is that Living Like Lions makes you question everything you know about being a man. Not a questioning that makes you doubt who you are, but a questioning that digs down into your identity and uncovers the strength and leadership you’ve always wanted to find.
Be aimless no longer. Think for yourself. Lead. Be strong. Love Jesus. That’s the message of Living Like Lions.
In this booklet, Dr. R. C. Sproul carefully and clearly explains that the church is a body of people saved by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit who live to glorify and enjoy God.
Beginning with the ancient Nicene Creed, which affirms that the church is “one, holy, catholic, and apostolic,” Dr. Sproul provides accessible teaching on one of the most misunderstood of all Christian doctrines.

Turning your sermon or sermon series into a book exposes more people to God’s Word, better equips you for counseling, accelerates future sermon prep, adds credibility to your ministry, and even helps make ends meet during tight times. John 21:25 tells us that the world itself couldn’t contain the books that would be written about the work of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to try anyway because, in Heaven, there will no longer be a need for sermons or books. Our time is now. If God so leads you, we’d love to work with you on your sermon or sermon series. Visit sermontobook.com to learn more.
When a group of people practice something for two thousand years, the expectation is that they’d eventually get whatever it was they were committed to doing right. But the fact is that we as individuals and as a corporate community are still struggling with many of the issues that plagued the early church.
Larry Shallenberger takes a fresh look at the book of Acts to help you gain a deeper understanding of how God moved in the early church and what that means for you today.
