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 youll see that God has purposely positioned you everywhere youve beeneven when it seemed youd taken a wrong turn."
From the Trade Paperback edition.

Cheryl-Lee Raine1 Stars Out Of 5give me my Bible any day!!August 7, 2014Cheryl-Lee RaineQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 2This 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!

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!

DalynYakima, WaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Life ChangerAugust 19, 2012DalynYakima, WaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love the stories in the Old Testament of the Bible. They are exciting and outrageous and thrilling. Did you ever ready the story of one of King David's mighty men, Benaiah? His exploits are truly daring- he wasn't called mighty for nothin'! That dude chased a lion. Read the publisher's description below for references, and then go read about it for yourself, because it's not one to miss.
Mark Batterson, in this book, encourages and coaches us to become spiritual lion chasers; to consider viewing our problems and weaknesses as opportunities- for growth, ministry, training, etc.
This book is one of those books- life changers. I came away from reading it (and it's really a good read) with a few treasures, things I'll carry with me always. Here's one example: " Here's a thought: The circumstances you complain about become chains that imprison you. And worship is the way out. Worship reframes our problems and refocuses our lives...."
Mark suggests we stop asking God to get us out of difficult circumstances and start asking Him what He wants us to get out of those difficult circumstances.
In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is an outstanding book. I have already shared some of my highlights with a friend and she ordered it immediately for her husband. My copy of this book is highlighted almost on every page. Good stuff!
You can order a copy here.
This book came at a great time in my life- God's perfect timing, of course. I'm changing some things, looking at the way I do some things and why, and praying for the courage to chase a few lions of my own. I have known for a long time that suffering doesn't kill us, and that the poeple who have suffered with dignity are far more interesting and have more to offer their fellow man, but now I'm taking things more seriously and this book has given me insight as well as some practical advice.
I recieved a copy of this book free in exchange for an unbiased review.
