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.

    "Well worth the read!"

    Great perspective on life and our calling from God. I am going to listen to it a second time to make certain it "sticks." I've already recommended the book to friends!

    "awesome book!"

    Mark Batterson is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I know it's a favorite book when I end the last word and then start from the beginning again.

    "#lionchasercreater"

    This book will uncage the #lionchaser in you! It will cause you to dream big dreams for God...and fulfill them! Break through mediocrity as you listen and are charged with the passion of Christ to do something worth recording in the history books!
