SYNOPSIS : 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: โ€œBenaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed itโ€ (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 failureโ€ฆyour greatest fear? Story Behind the Book โ€œOur 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 youโ€™ll see that God has purposely positioned you everywhere youโ€™ve beenโ€”even when it seemed youโ€™d taken a wrong turn.โ€ โ€”Mark Batterson

SYNOPSIS : Over 100,000 copies sold! Quit playing it safe and start running toward the roar! When the image of a man-eating beast travels through the optic nerve and into the visual cortex, the brain sends the body a simple but urgent message: run away! Thatโ€™s what normal people do, but not lion chasers. Rather than seeing a five-hundred-pound problem, they see an opportunity for God to show up and show His power. Chase the Lion is more than a catch phrase; itโ€™s a radically different approach to life. Itโ€™s only when we stop fearing failure that we can fully seize opportunity by the mane. With grit and gusto, New York Times best-selling author Mark Batterson delivers a bold message to everyone with a big dream. This is a wake-up call to stop living as if the purpose of life was to simply arrive safely at death. Our dreams should scare us. They should be so big that without God they would be impossible to achieve. Quit running away from what youโ€™re afraid of. Chase the lion! Change the world! What is your five-hundred-pound dream? In this highly anticipated sequel to his best-selling In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, Mark Batterson invites lion chasers everywhere to chase dreams so impossible that victory demands we face our fears, defy the odds, and hold tight to God. These are the kind of dreams that will make you a bigger person and the world a better place. Based upon 2 Samuel 23, Chase the Lion tells the true story of an ancient warrior named Benaiah who chased a lion into a pit on a snowy dayโ€”and then killed it. For most people, that situation wouldnโ€™t just be a problemโ€ฆit would be the last problem they ever faced. For Benaiah, it was an opportunity to step into his destiny. After defeating the lion, he landed his dream job as King Davidโ€™s bodyguard and eventually became commander-in-chief of Israelโ€™s army under King Solomon. Written in a way that both challenges and encourages, this revolutionary book will help unleash the faith and courage you need to identify, chase, and catch the five-hundred-pound dreams in your life.

SYNOPSIS : Preaching is a challenging, privileged, and awesome responsibility. As important as mining the text for its meaning and message and making connections to our twenty-first-century world is the responsibility to engage the imaginations of the people in the pews (or chairs). In this book, Ray Friesenโ€”life-long preacher and retired pastorโ€”has provided twenty examples of how to be creative and engage those imaginations. Most were written under the pressures of bi-vocational ministry (preaching forty times a year as half-time pastor and operating a mediation practice). They are offered to you, not as sermons for you to preach, but as examples of what is possible, even with all the other responsibilities you may have. Each sermon and type of creativity will create an opportunity to set your imagination and creativity free to engage the imaginations, hearts, and dreams of your parishioners.

SYNOPSIS : Chase the Lion: Stepping Confidently Into the Unknown - Member Book is a 6-session young adult Bible study that expands the message of Mark Batterson s best-selling book "In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day." Inspired by a fearless warrior named Benaiah (2 Sam. 23:20) who changed the course of his future by winning a battle with a real lion, this study examines biblical and modern-day examples of people who were willing to put everything on the line, take risks, seize opportunities, face fears, embrace uncertainty, and look foolish when it comes to chasing after God-given opportunities. Our current Christian culture doesn't usually encourage sensible people to chase after risky opportunities and dreams. We want to believe that if it's a good decision, it will always be and feel safe because that's the way God wants life to be. But what if you discovered that the fulfilling life God wants for you is hiding behind a present problem, a past failure, or a lifelong fear? Author: Mark Batterson serves as lead pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C. Targeting emerging generations, 73 percent of NCCers are single 20-somethings who live or work on Capitol Hill. Currently one church with three locations, the vision of NCC is to meet in movie theaters at metro stops throughout the D.C. area. Mark lives on Capitol Hill with his wife, Lora, and three children.

SYNOPSIS : When did we start believing that God wants to send us to safe places to do easy things? Jesus didnโ€™t die to keep us safe. He died to make us dangerous. The will of God is not an insurance plan; itโ€™s a daring plan. Itโ€™s time to quit living as if the purpose of your life is to arrive safely at death. All In, a four-session video-based Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately) by New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson, challenges participants to resolutely follow God wherever he leads by pointing out that if Jesus is not Lord of all, he is not Lord at all. Most people think they are following Jesus. They may think they are following Jesus, but the reality is, theyโ€™ve invited Jesus to follow them. They call him Savior, but theyโ€™ve never surrendered to him as Lord. Are you following Jesus? Or have you invited Jesus to follow you? Participants will find Battersonโ€™s teaching filled with his customary vivid, contemporary stories as well as biblical characters like Shamgar, Elisha, Jonathan, and Judas. Itโ€™s time to go all in for God. Sessions include: Now or Never: Pack Your Coffin All In: Charge! All Out: Rim Huggers All in All: Burn the Ships Designed for use with All In Video Study 9780310333104 (sold separately).
