What do you do when facing lions on a spiritual safari? Veteran missionary pilot Joe Hurston uses a lion's characteristics to teach life changing spiritual principles while demonstrating the leadership principles of perseverance and confidence in the face of difficulty to fulfill God's plan for your life. This thought-provoking book will show you how to:
  • Run to the roar, or your problem, and not turn and run away.
  • Keep pride and bullies from stopping you.
  • Pick carefully the snarling feline you need to confront.
  • Prevent giving up your territorial rights.
  • Be on the prowl on the path of God's plan.
  • Guard against being devoured by the lion.
  A successful businessman, Hurston supports each principle with anecdotal you-can-do-it stories from his life experiences on the mission field. His accounts, including many years of work in Haiti and his more recent relief outreach to victims of the tsunami in Asia, are exciting and encouraging. Combining an entrepreneur's passion with a Christian heart, this book is an adventure lesson tool for developing strong leadership skills.
