From the Contemporary Christian Collection…

In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day

By Mark Batterson

BS 1325.52B38 2006

An inspirational book that encourages readers to make the most of opportunities and realize God’s power whatever the circumstances.  Using examples from the Bible, Batterson illuminates the truth that sometimes what seems like huge problems and obstacles in life can become the biggest blessings.   However, we must be willing to “chase lions” or face fears and rise to the greatness that God knows we are capable of.
