Once I finished reading the book In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, I knew I had to read Chase the Lion. Since Mark Batterson wrote this book as a follow up and the first one spoke to me, I knew this one would too and I was right. I enjoy Mark’s writing style and relatability, as well as his passion to help his audience to live their best life. I also enjoyed hearing about the concept of “running toward the roar” from the perspective of pursuing dreams rather than just enduring pain (like in Levi Lusko’s book Through the Eyes of a Lion). This book is even more empowering and inspiring than the first and if you want to courage to pursue your dreams, this is a book I highly recommend ~ Bethel
Everyone has dreams we want to pursue, but many of us get scared and stop pursuing them before we even start. We are often so afraid of failing, we allow our fears to prevent us from pursuing our God-given dreams. We often make excuses to not pursuing them, but are evitable aware that our fears are parlaying us. It makes us ask the question: how do we overcome our fears to pursue our God-given dreams?
In his book Chase the Lion, Mark Batterson teaches us how to stop running away from dreams and opportunities that scare us and instead choose to run towards them. Once again using the story from Scripture about Benaiah defeating the lion in a pit on a snowy day with only a spear, Mark helps us to see that it’s only when we stop fearing failing that we can seize opportunities in their tracks, especially the types of dreams that would be impossible without God’s intervention. This engaging book will inspire anyone to take action that the dreams that have scared them for far too long. This is a book I highly recommend. Get your copy today!

This blog is now designated for my reviews of primarily Christian books, but also some movies and musicals. It will feature the work I do to help launch and promote the works of Christian authors I believe in their message. This will also be the place where I will update and promote the major of the projects of Princess Worth Dying For Ministries or my personal life.
The name is derived from one of my favorite books, Through the Eyes of a Lion by Levi Lusko. Through my reviews, I hope to give Christians the tools they need to look at the world "through the eyes of a lion" so they can find the courage to "run toward the roar".
