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.

So much rich info! will keep as a life resource

Loved the author reading this. Really engaging, some very enlightening and out of the box thinking, and challenging of Christian or religious behaviors that I loved! So much here, its a reference book for life, and geared towards those who need change, and inspiration to be a better follower of God with impact on this earth.

This book helps you find the Christian Warrior in yourself!

I loved this book! I will be listening several more times to it. Batterson has a way of connecting the dots for those of us who have never wanted to be conformists and igniting a passion to chase the God-sized dreams in our hearts. As a Christian entrepreneur, I got tremendous value from the book!!!

Identify a lion to chase.

Phenomenal, scripture based book that opened my eyes to why I need to be a lion-chaser. I will listen again.

Christian motivational writing at its finest

I absolutely loved this read! Mark has a way of drawing you in on the first page... I was captivated with the bible story about a lion and how he brought it all together. I listened on audible in July and started listening to it again in September. I can promise you I'll be listening again and again (which is a testament of how great the book is.) ❤❤❤
