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.

For the faint of heart

If a lack of courage has kept you from seizing opportunities and left you in a pit of monotony and mediocrity, this book is for you. Amazing insights await you. May you walk away as I did with a refreshed sense of who you are in Christ and the boldness and courage to do something about it.

Take risks and chase lions

This book gave me life. I realized I wasn’t going after what I wanted; what I knew God wanted for me. Mark Batterson’s wit, biblical stories, real today examples, and personal experiences helped me wake up to my true potential. I always enjoy the books read by the author and this was no exception.
