Publisher's Summary

Run to 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! That's what normal people do, but not lion chasers. Rather than seeing a 500-pound problem, they see an opportunity for God to show up and show his power.
Chase the Lion is more than a catchphrase; it's a radically different approach to life. It'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.
Quit playing it safe and start running toward the roar!
This is a wake-up call to stop living as if the purpose was to simply arrive safely at death. Our dreams should scare us. They should be so big that without God, they are impossible to achieve. Quit running away from what you're afraid of.
Chase the lion!
Change the world!
What is your 500-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 day - and then killed it. For most people that situation wouldn't just be a 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 David's bodyguard and eventually became commander in chief of Israel'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 500-pound dreams in your life.

Great audio book

Enjoyed listening to this book, has several spiritual references, however it helped put everything into light that is referenced. It is very easy to get into as the narrator voice is easy to listen to.

I finished the audio book in only two sittings, and will most certainly be listening to it again as I know that I will get something new from the next listen.

This is the first time listening to this author and will most likely get one of his other books and compare the information given.
