Publisher's Summary

Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn't chase. You will look back longingly on risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path.

In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is inspired by one of the most obscure yet courageous acts recorded in Scripture, a blessed and audacious act that left no regrets: "Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it" (2 Samuel 23:20 -21). Unleash the lion chaser within!

    "Game Changer"

    This book is a great book if you think balance is over rated. It has given me the faith to do things that I would have blown off as extreme. To give an encouraging word to someone I don't know. It's a great book for comfortable people who are tried of being comfortable.

    "Mighty helpers needed!"

    King David didn't win most great battles alone. Little known great captains still needed today!

    "Powerful"

    The self reflection that comes through in this book is amazing. But it's not about seeing who you are not, it's about seeing who you are called to be and it's what you signed up for. Can't wait to read the next one.

    "Very encouraging"

    Very encouraging and challenging! Well worth it. This book has encouraged me to face the fears that have been holding me back for years and to chase my lion of starting a new Holiday to celebrate Jesus as King. A coronation holiday in preparation for His soon return.
