 Our Description


Lions in the City: Missionary to America
A Novel by Jack Casserly


American missionary Father Martin Mulloy, after laboring for 33 years in the African bush (Ghana), returns home in 1998 to die of malaria. Instead he lives to encounter the two greatest challenges of his life: the controversial changes in the Catholic Church following

the Ecumenical Council of Vatican II and a soul-wrenching, face-to-face confrontation with his older brother, a fellow priest:

Penned by best-selling author Jack Casserly, Lions in the City is a down-to-earth story of humanity, humility, and hope. The narrative discloses the inside -- often hidden -- strife among Catholic leaders and its tragic result: fallen-away faithful in the hundreds of thousands. The novel reveals today's conflicts between Catholic traditionalists and futurists, not by hair-splitting theological terms, but through all-too-human riveting drama.

"As one who spent 15 years in the Philippines, I fell in love with Father Martin and his simplicity ... All in all, this is tiiiquite a book! Not only an enjoyable story, but one to challenge the reader." —Rev. George P. Carlin, Foreign Missionary and Former Journalist
