Having been marked from birth to be one of a handful of beings whose life exemplifies the struggle between good and evil, Curtis the Lion takes the reader on a mystical journey through God's World. Relying on his ability and willingness to hear the Voices of Wisdom, he turns away from his family (Luke 14: 26, 27), to await the teaching of the Angels and the meaning of the Voices. Reminiscent of the Book of Isaiah, the world turns to war; all that was alive and hopeful dissolves into desolation and dust, and the Forces of Evil attempt to reel Curtis into their cause. Painfully tempted by their offers of eternal power, not just over this world, but over the universe, he struggles to maintain his allegiance to the Lord, finally choosing Wisdom and Peace.

About the Author
In the early nineties, she became a Field Experience Supervisor at Harvard Divinity School and, in 1997, received, from the Divinity School, a three year fellowship in Urban Ministry.
After traveling much of the world, she now lives in San Diego, California with her husband, Joe, and son, Dmitry.
Misael Barron began drawing while still in elementary school. His first attempts were what he calls, "rudimentary," his art "maturing as a result of practice and careful analysis."
Though he considers himself more adept with pencils, he has a devotion and respect for those, both ancient and contemporary, who have worked with fountain pens. Curtis gave him a small chance to be part of that tradition, but laments that business demands the illustrator to work quickly, while art demands patience.
Misael is now 18 years old and lives in Escondido, California.
