Publisher's Description

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

    In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day

    Benaiah
    This review was written for In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day.
    This book brings courage and hope to those who are facing seemingly impossible odds. Benaiah's life in Scripture is examined in these pages and the principles gleaned can challange us in the face of fear.

    This book is one of the worst books that I've ever read! Nothing biblical in it other than one verse taken out of context. Get a proper biblically sound book and also stick to the Word as always!

    this book has been an eye opener for me like few books have ever been. Christians come upon difficulties and trials and are either frozen in fear, despondent or panic stricken. This book shows that our perspective is soooooo very wrong. It teaches about God's perspective as we deal with hardships.

    I also LOVED that Mark Batterson was so very down to earth in his communication style.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND WAY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS!
