Timothy Mahoney
Author | Filmaker
Timothy Mahoney is a Minnesota filmmaker with over 20 years of experience at the helm of a media production company, producing award-winning television commercials and videos for regional and national companies.

A natural storyteller with a passion for film, Mahoney created the film production company. Thinking Man Films, to explore the world we live in and encourage people to question the answers we have been told about our culture, science, history and religion. His insatiable curiosity led him and his film crew on a journey across the world to seek answers to the questions many of us ponder but don’t know where to find explanations.

Mahoney wrote, directed and produced “Patterns of Evidence: Exodus”, his first documentary feature film, inviting viewers to explore the 3,500 year old mystery behind the incredible Biblical story of the Exodus. Twelve years of scientific investigation into the archeological truths behind the Bible’s miraculous account has resulted in “Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus” becoming one of the most comprehensive and astounding documentaries of our time. Traditional views of history are challenged as the evidence is allowed to speak for itself in surprising ways, leaving the audience to decide if the Exodus is factual truth or myth.

Timothy Mahoney is a native of Minnesota and an avid out-doorsman. He and his wife, Jill, have been married for 35 years. They have four married children and four grandchildren.
John Eldredge
Author | Founder - Ransomed Heart
John Eldredge is an author (you probably figured that out), a counselor, and a teacher. He is also president of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God, recover their own hearts in God's love, and learn to live in God's Kingdom. John grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles (which he hated) and spent his boyhood summers on his grandfather’s cattle ranch in eastern Oregon (which he loved). John met his wife, Stasi, in a high school drama class. But their romance did not begin until they each came to faith in Christ, after high school. John earned his undergraduate degree in Theater at Cal Poly and directed a theater company in Los Angeles for several years before moving to Colorado with Focus on the Family, where he taught at the Focus on the Family Institute.

John earned his master’s degree in Counseling from Colorado Christian University, under the direction of Larry Crabb and Dan Allender. He worked as a counselor in private practice before launching Ransomed Heart in 2000. John and Stasi live in Colorado Springs. They have three sons (Samuel, Blaine, and Luke), a golden retriever (Oban), and two horses (Whistle and Kokolo).

While all of this is factually true, it somehow misses describing an actual person. John loves the outdoors passionately, and all beauty, Shakespeare, bow hunting, a good cigar, anything having to do with adventure, poetry, March Madness, working in the shop, fly fishing, classic rock, the Tetons, fish tacos, George MacDonald, green tea, buffalo steaks, dark chocolate, wild and open places, horses running, and too much more to name. He also uses the expression “far out” way too much.
Sam Eldredge
Author - Ransomed Heart
Sam Eldredge began his writing career in second grade with a memorable essay on penguins. He graduated with a bachelors in English and recently launched a website, a new online magazine for men he publishes with his two brothers. When he goes out of doors he loves to drive motorcycles, sail, and adventure with his wife, Susie.
Killing Lions: A Guide Through the Trials Young Men Face
We want to be self-sufficient. Find our own direction as we pursue our dreams. Know it all and never ask for help. Isn’t this how most guys approach manhood? On our own, pretending we are doing better than we really are? But sooner or later the thrill of independence gets lost in the fog of isolation.

It’s time to take the pressure off. We were never meant to figure life out on our own.

This book was born out of a series of weekly phone calls between Sam Eldredge, a young writer in his twenties, and his dad, best-selling author John Eldredge. Join the conversation as a father and son talk about pursuing beauty, dealing with money, getting married, chasing dreams, knowing something real with God, and how to find a life you can call your own.

Killing Lions is more than fatherly advice. It is an invitation into a journey: either to be the son who receives fathering or the father who learns what must be spoken. Most important, these conversations speak to a searching generation: “You are not alone. Its not all up to you. You are going to find your way.”
