Tembo's Roar: A spiritual journey of discovery - Iain Gow


Ballo paused and sniffed the breeze, 'Omkhulu has gone mad with power... Tembo, your calling is to save the lion tribes, nothing less.'

By the time Tembo became an adult lion, he'd already travelled through danger and difficulty. But when he met Ballo, the Great Lion, he was given a mission unlike any he had faced before.

Tembo's Roar is a book about his intrepid adventures as he discovers his identity and learns the values that will guide him in life. It is a story for children, but it is also a story for grown-ups.

The questions Tembo asks are our own, the voice heard within his roar, the moments of wonder that come our way, the gentle echo of an invitation we hear of something that is beyond our understanding... As Tembo learns to trust and, as his soul slowly grows in wisdom, he finds the power of love that conquers all despair.

Like Tembo, may we all discover that, if we are brave, when all is said and done and the fight is over, the gentle way of grace and trust will lead us home.

Suitable for the whole family, beautifully presented in hardcover with full colour illustrations.

What They're Saying:

"Tembo's Roar will capture the imagination of children, and of the adults who read the story to them or with them... So let your imagination roam free, and let your spirit soar and encounter the transforming power of love and the mysterious workings of the divine."
- From the foreword by the Right Reverend Ross Bay (Bishop of Auckland)

"Tembo's Roar is about living life to the full, ready for the final journey to the final embrace - 'te taanga manawa', in te reo Maori - where everyone experiences beautiful light and beautiful roars, true voices and familiar faces."
- From the foreword by the Right Reverend Te Kitohi Wiremu Pikaahu (Bishop Tai Tokerau)
