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!

    "Excellent!"

    A must read/listen book for anyone passionate about God. It served as a great encouragement to me and released me from fears of the unknown.

    "Slow moving, had to skip through it"
    What disappointed you about In a Pit With a Lion On a Snowy Day?

    Was very slow moving. The point came across but I feel like it could have been done in 5 minutes.


    What could Mark Batterson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Made it shorter, got to the point. Too many stories to get to the same point. Step out of your comfort zone, etc.

    "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.
