Publisher's Summary

Run to the Roar!

When the image of a man-eating beast travels through the optic nerve and into the visual cortex, the brain sends the body a simple but urgent message: Run away! That's what normal people do, but not lion chasers. Rather than seeing a 500-pound problem, they see an opportunity for God to show up and show his power.

Chase the Lion is more than a catchphrase; it's a radically different approach to life. It's only when we stop fearing failure that we can fully seize opportunity by the mane. With grit and gusto, New York Times best-selling author Mark Batterson delivers a bold message to everyone with a big dream.

Quit playing it safe and start running toward the roar!

This is a wake-up call to stop living as if the purpose was to simply arrive safely at death. Our dreams should scare us. They should be so big that without God, they are impossible to achieve. Quit running away from what you're afraid of.

Chase the lion!

Change the world!

What is your 500-pound dream?

In this highly anticipated sequel to his best-selling In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, Mark Batterson invites lion chasers everywhere to chase dreams so impossible that victory demands we face our fears, defy the odds, and hold tight to God.

These are the kind of dreams that will make you a bigger person and the world a better place.

Based upon 2 Samuel 23, Chase the Lion tells the true story of an ancient warrior named Benaiah who chased a lion into a pit on a snowy day - and then killed it. For most people that situation wouldn't just be a problem...it would be the last problem they ever faced. For Benaiah it was an opportunity to step into his destiny. After defeating the lion, he landed his dream job as King David's bodyguard and eventually became commander in chief of Israel's army under King Solomon.

Written in a way that both challenges and encourages, this revolutionary book will help unleash the faith and courage you need to identify, chase, and catch the 500-pound dreams in your life.

Life Reveling!

This book (along with the leadership group I am working through the book with) have been like a mirror showing me who I am, and a compass that is pointing me to where I am going. I have evaluated my life choices, and have set goals that are impossible without divine intervention. Something I'm not sure I would have had the courage to do at this point in my life without the encouragement of the leadership group and this book. I recommend Chase the Lion to everyone who knows that there is so much more to life than the status quo.

Great book for anybody who believes they are destined to do something great in their lives!!!

I loved the story and the author was great as a narrator! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to do something great in their lives. It reminds us that God has a purpose for us in our lives. Everyone has a different journey but we just need to stay focused and move forward. You won't be sorry with this book.

Great audio book

Enjoyed listening to this book, has several spiritual references, however it helped put everything into light that is referenced. It is very easy to get into as the narrator voice is easy to listen to.

I finished the audio book in only two sittings, and will most certainly be listening to it again as I know that I will get something new from the next listen.

This is the first time listening to this author and will most likely get one of his other books and compare the information given.

A Repeat Listen

I read Mark Battersons In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day first. I enjoyed it, but felt there was a lot of backstory and information. While I enjoyed the overall message of the book, I can't say that it just grabbed me.

I tell you that to say, I was not racing to start this book anytime soon. I had already purchased it tho, so thought I'd just go ahead a give it a try. The backstory and information of the previous book, laid the foundation for my heart to receive all Chase The Lion had for me! I found myself repeating several chapters before moving on, so I could be sure and let it all soak in. I did not want to rush or mindlessly listen.

While I myself wasn't captivated by In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day, I recommend it before Chase The Lion. I feel the two books together work to give you the tools needed to go after the life God has called you to live.

I found the narration engaging and the content motivation. I will be listening to this book again soon.
