Publisher Comments:

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!

What if the life you really want, and the future God wants for you, is hiding right now in your biggest problem, your worst failure…your greatest fear?

Story Behind the Book

“Our best days often start out as our worst days. And our greatest opportunities are often disguised as our biggest problems. You can land in a pit with a lion on a snowy day, and it will seem like the end of the road. But God is in the recycling business. He recycles past experiences and uses them to prepare us for future opportunities. That is the story of my life. And that is the story of your life. Look in the rearview mirror long enough and you’ll see that God has purposely positioned you everywhere you’ve been—even when it seemed you’d taken a wrong turn.”

—Mark Batterson

Synopsis:

Make sense of the "random" pieces of your life. Get a God's-eye perspective on your problems and unexplained experiences. Discover that you've been in the right place at the right time, every time.

Feel like your inner hero is anemic?
Employing an obscure Bible story Batterson convincingly leaps into new territory and emboldens us to approach adversity -to become lion chasers.
Why? Because to achieve the Godly victory we want the most, we may need to conquer the situations we like the least.
Though perhaps needful of a few cautionary considerations, Batterson's logic excites.
