In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day Mark Batterson Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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

    By Jerry Muckelrath
  • Very inspirational

    By Jonah Berb
    This book has opened up my eyes to see the key flaws in my relationship with Christ in that I have to chase the lion (the lion can be anything that God has placed on your heart to chance) all it takes from me is an act of faith to charge forward and fight the enemy that surrounds us every day till the day we see our father in heaven
  • Amazing

    Amazing book about chasing our God-ordained dreams and facing our fears. Every page was a reminder of how big God is, and I just couldn't put it down. I read the whole thing in 2 days!
