Book Review...

In a Pit With a Lion on a Snowy Day Mark Batterson In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day was a great and though provoking book. The premise of it was based on a few verses of the bible from 2 Samuel that I'm sure most people (at least myself) just skimmed over in the past. I didn't even know the story existed. In these verses Benaiah chases down a lion and wrestles with it. The book is focused on how we as humans can become "lion chasers" as gutsy as Benaiah, facing our fears even when they may seem daunting. The book was well written and had a great summary at the end of each chapter that laid out the important points to think about after reading. It challenged me to try and become more of a risk taker, realizing that God often calls us as his children to do things that seem crazy or don't always make sense. If you want a challenge to think differently and become more intentional in facing your fears and chasing the lions in your life, this book is a great read!
