In 2008 an extraordinary two-minute film clip capturing the moving reunion of two young men and their pet lion Christian appeared on YouTube and immediately became an international phenomenon. A Lion Called Christian tells the remarkable story of how Anthony “Ace” Bourke and John Rendall, visitors to London from Australia in 1969, bought the boisterous lion cub in the pet department of Harrods. For several months, the three of them shared a flat above a furniture shop on London’s King’s Road, where the charismatic and intelligent Christian quickly became a local celebrity, cruising the streets in the back of a Bentley, popping in for lunch at a local restaurant, even posing for a fashion advertisement. But the lion cub was growing up—fast—and soon even the walled church garden where he went for exercise wasn’t large enough for him. A coincidental meeting with English actors Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers, stars of the hit film Born Free, led to Christian being flown to Kenya and placed under the expert care of “the father of lions” George Adamson. Incredibly, when Ace and John returned to Kenya to see Christian a year later, they received a loving welcome from their lion, who was by then fully integrated into Africa and a life with other lions. Originally published in 1971, and now fully revised and updated with more than 50 photographs of Christian from cuddly cub in London to magnificent lion in Africa, A Lion Called Christian is a touching and uplifting true story of an indelible human-animal bond. It is is destined to become one of the great classics of animal literature. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This book is dedicated to a Lion named Christian and to the two young men who unexpectedly came upon him and adopted the lion cub for no other reason than feeling compelled in their hearts to do so. This is a true story... Two friends from Australia, John and Ace, were working in London England in 1969. One day, they were shopping and decided to go into the world famous store, Harrods. When they went upstairs to the pet department, they found that Harrods' pet store was more like a zoo! They saw two lion cubs, cramped in a cage! Neither Ace nor John knew anything about lions, really. But they became instantly bonded to the male cub. So much so that John said to Ace, "Why don't we buy him?" To which Ace answered, "I've already named him..." "What? What did you name him?" "I've named him, Christian," said Ace. A video was created for preschoolers with an animated character reading aloud Christian the lion's story! (link below to view free on YouTube) DVDs will be available soon for purchase.

Paethias Demidus Arius, a legatus of Rome, had led legions against Gaul, Germania, Parthia and served under Vespasian in the Judean war. It was after Caesar Nero summoned Paethias to take a small contingent of Rome's elite Centurions to Greece, where Paethias encountered Antiachus Miltiades Delphanae, the last the thread of the ancient Spartan military. At the cost of thirty-three of his centurions, Paethias is able to capture the last Spartan. Fearing this Greek more than any man he has ever known, Paethias shackles Antiachus next to a Christian, an evangelist, who converts Antiachus on the voyage to Rome. In Rome, Antiachus becomes the focus of Nero's vindictive hatred, as the Christian is tortured and forced to fight gladiators and beasts before the endless audiences in the Circus Maximus. In the prisons of the Circus Maximus, he learns of Judas a famous overgrown lion Nero uses only against Christians. Knowing his wife's soul is at stake, Antiachus must endure pain, exhaustion and impossible odds in order to take the truth of salvation to his wife. Seeing the grief Antiachus endures, many Romans convert to this new faith but fear being discovered, knowing they too will stand in the Circus Maximus where Nero tests the innocence and pristine beauty of a faith he despises. From 64 to 68 A.D. the Roman emperor Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus ordered the execution of Christians in Rome's largest auditorium, the Circus Maximus, where Christians were slain by Gladiators and beasts. The Christian and the Lion is a character driven historical fiction that depicts the Christian genocide perpetrated by Nero through the lens of a Christian and a Roman general, even encasing political events now forgotten. The Christian and the Lion is based on events recorded by the ancient historians Tacitus, Suetonius and Cassius Dio.
