Some people seem to find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time...several times! These memories leave them with an ill taste in their mouths, and nothing good seems to come from them. But what if the seemingly messy pieces of life were actually strategically positioned by God? What if those people are actually in the right place at the right time every time? In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day will help make sense of tribulations. It will be possible to connect the dots to see clearly how God has been preparing for future opportunities. With a God's-eye perspective, it will soon be possible to thank Him, even for lions, pits, and snowy days.… (mere)

This book is based off in part on a passage in 2 Samuel 23:20 that says,
"Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant fighter from Kabzeel, performed great exploits. He struck down Moab’s two mightiest warriors. He also went down into a pit on a snowy day and killed a lion."
Having read this as a teenager, this passage always made me like Benaiah because of his raw courage. You see him continue on into Solomon's reign and he ends up taking the place of commander of Israel's army.
There are a lot of great points the author makes in this book. He talks a lot about faith and how sometimes God calls us to do dramatic and sometimes hard to understand things that require faith. Most of all, I think the thing that meant the most to me in this book is the call to pursue God with childlike faith and to pray large prayers.
Having said that, we don't know the circumstances that led Benaiah to go down into the pit with the lion or if he was pressured to do so or if he was trying to rescue someone else. We don't know. The book takes a lot of liberty to speculate about the reasons and to assume the best of Benaiah when the truth is that Benaiah may have just been showing off. Having said that, this book is about 171 pages and has a lot of truth in it that we could all benefit from being reminded of. ( )

Success happens when opportunity meets preparedness.

This is such a great book. I've read it several times. Too often people miss what God wants them to do. Then there are those who know what God wants them to do, but feel inadequate for the task ahead and, as a result, either fail or never attempt to move forward in God's plans. Then there are those who chase lions... ( )

"It's almost like we are born with a chasing gene. It's part of our DNA. We need something to chase. ...We chase academic or athletic or artistic (or professional) goals. I believe God created us to chase lions, but too often that chase ends in miscarriage or misdirection. We stop chasing. Or we chase the wrong things that lead us down the wrong path. Maybe it is time to start chasing God again. Maybe it is time to seize God-ordained opportunities. Maybe it is time to unleash the lion chaser within."

Not a bad book. The author isn't an LCMS Lutheran, alas, so there are some things I would reword, and there is an odor of "theology of glory" where we concentrate on "theology of the cross." But I like much of what he is talking about - looking for opportunities the Holy Spirit brings our way. ( )

In this book Mr. Batterson discusses how sometime fear is our biggest obstacle to obtaining success. Sometimes we need to get in the pit and fight the lion. He talks about practical ways of trying things that we would be afraid of. He also talks about how God equips us along our journey to take big things. ( )
