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.

    "amazing "

    I leaned so much ! God is amazing. He orders our steps and has a plan. this book is a blessed reminder of that, and makes us think of that plan differently.

    "Another great read from Mark Batterson"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely! This book is a great encouragement to anyone that is facing any challenges in their lives, while maintaining a Biblical foundation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day?

    I truly enjoyed the way that Mr. Batterson details the history, and reasoning within the book.


    What about Mark Batterson’s performance did you like?

    He brings (of course) a full understanding of the book and it's precepts to the table.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book had an encouraging aspect to it overall.
