Publisher's Summary

Meet Daniel. A transformed man who transformed his world.

What does an ancient Jewish prophet have to do with modern America? What, if anything, can we learn from a man who lived 2,400 years ago as a captive in the land we now call Iraq? As it turns out, quite a bit.

David and Jason Benham are convinced the biblical example of Daniel holds the keys to contemporary Christians thriving in a world increasingly hostile to people of faith. Like Daniel, believers today find themselves in a changing culture, one opposed to the god they serve. Yet, like Daniel, they must learn how to stand strong while loving and serving the people around them.

Living Among Lions is for Christian brothers and sisters who have the potential to transform their world but find themselves standing in the shadows wondering how to live faithfully in an unfriendly environment.

Divided into three sections, Living Among Lions covers three distinct characteristics that made Daniel strong: conviction, commitment, and courage. Daniel possessed all of these qualities and lived them out. As a result God gave him unprecedented favor and supernatural power. A mere slave living in exile, Daniel emerged as one of the most powerful men in the known world. Daniel's conviction, commitment, and courage empowered him not merely to survive in Babylon but to thrive. He did not conform to his world - he transformed it!

Listen and act

Excellent on all points. I have listened to this book over twenty times and each time I hear something new to put into practice. I would love to met the Benham Brothers dad as they frequently mention the powerful example this man is by living the truth no matter the cost. The twins recount his acts of faith in many instances. Their Dad is amazing and the sons are too!

A Response Can Be Made

This book is a call to live out our Christian faith in a culture that is increasingly in Rebellion against God. David and Jason help equip you to live boldly our trust of the Lord our God in the face of those who oppose God.

This is exactly the message our country needs right now

Our country is sliding more and more into a pagan nations. Nobody planned it that way but it's happening right before eyes. So many Christians feel powerless to fight. The opposition seems so huge. The reality is there's more of us than "them ". One plus God is a majority. We can win this fight if we learn how to stand up and fight. Thank you Jason and david.

Challenging Yet Inspiring

This book is such a gem for the Believer! Encouraging, yet not fluffy. Challenging, powerful, yet entertaining.
