Publisher's Description

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

#InAPit

"Mark has become one of the most important voices for a new generation. Anything he touches changes lives. Read this book and you’ll see what I mean."  —CRAIG GROESCHEL, pastor of Life.Church, author of Chazown and Dare to Drop the Pose

"As a leader and teacher, Mark Batterson brings imagination, energy, and insight. I appreciate his willingness to take bold risks and go to extraordinary lengths to reach our culture with a message that is truly relevant."  —ED YOUNG, senior pastor, Fellowship Church

"Don’t settle for a normal life. Conquer your fears, accept His anointing, jump into that pit, chase the lion, and watch God’s Kingdom come in amazing ways."  —CHRISTINE CAINE, founder of Propel Women, author of Unashamed

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!

    I love Mark Batterson after I read his book for young adults (All In) a few years ago. His writing style always makes my day, and I eagerly took this book into account. Let me just go ahead and be blunt-this book is one EVERYONE should read.

    I need to chase more lions. I need to get out there for Jesus, and In a Pit dares us to do just that.

    Through stories, awesome visual pictures, Bible verses, a bit of humor, and tales from his own life, Mr. Batterson hands us one inspiring book.

    I wanted to gobble it all up in one read, but at the same time savor it. I read the book however in two weeks, mainly during the evening before bed and in my quiet time first thing in the morning, and I fell in love. I came to see how it can be so wrong to play it safe and how we must see everything, every moment, as a gift from our heavenly Father.

    Our biggest problems may just start looking like our greatest opportunities.

    Mark Batterson

    I highly recommend this book to anyone (especially young adults seeking the Lord's will as they graduate High School). Be prepared to be dared and get ready to chase those lions.

    I got this book free from Blogging for Books in exchange for doing a review of my own personal opinions.
