Chase the Lion by Mark Batterson

Book: Chase the Lion
Author: Mark Batterson
Publisher: Multnomah
Publishing Date: September 6, 2016

This is the book you'v been waiting for. This is a book to not only ignite the dreams in those who are searching or hungry for something more, bur it's a call out the mighty men of God. Chase The Lion, is a Dream-Pursuer's fuel.

Just as Eldridge's book "Wild at Heart" talks about needing something to chase, this is a book to awaken the passion to pursue the call on your life. Reading this creates a hunger to set chase to something BIG!

The thought provoking stories within this book stir hope and inspire you to dream, to keep dreaming, to not let go of your dream. This book belongs on your bookshelf because it's one that you'll go back to time and time again. It wont go out of date. It's content is biblical, it's real-life, it's genuine. Mark Batterson's writing style is fresh, like he's sitting in your living room having a conversation about dreaming your dream with you. I can't tell you how many quotes I posted to FaceBook in even just the first chapters. Truth is truth and there's no avoiding it. We live our lives through story and that's how Batterson relates his message here; through story. 

This is a MUST READ, MUST OWN book! 

Favorite Quotes:
"Too often the church complains about culture instead of creating it. The energy we spend on criticism is being stolen from creativity. It’s sideways energy. We need fewer commentators and more innovators. I try to live by Michelangelo’s maxim: criticize by creating. Quit complaining about what’s wrong, and do something that makes a difference!" -Chase The Lion @markbatterson

"God honors big dreams because big dreams honor God." -Chase The Lion

"No conflict. No story. We accept that fact when it comes to movies. Epic movies demand epic conflict. That’s what makes them epic! And what’s true of great movies is true of great lives. Great conflict cultivates great character. Of course, it’s easier to watch on the screen than it is to walk through it. If you want to live an epic life, you have to overcome some epic challenges. You have to take some epic risks, make some epic sacrifices. For David it was picking a fight with Goliath. For Benaiah it was chasing the lion." -Chase The Lion

(I was given a copy of this book through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review. In all honesty, I fell in love with this book. I didn't read the first one--In the Pit With a Lion on a Snowy Day--but this one caught my attention and kept it. Love it! And yes, another copy will be purchased and on my coffee table.)
