“Chase the Lion is a powerful, passionate, and inspiring message! When you pursue God’s dream for your life, it can be a little scary, but man is it worth it!”
“Creative. Inspiring. Challenging. Batterson’s writings always leave us encouraged, and Chase the Lion is no exception. If you feel as if life has caused you to shrink the size of your dreams, this book is for you!”
—Louie Giglio, pastor of Passion City Church, founder of Passion Conferences, and author of The Comeback
“Mark Batterson reminds us to trust in the powerful truth that with God we don’t have to let our thinking be limited. By obeying Him, we let our growing faith push us to dream big and lean in ever closer to Him without fear or hesitation. It’s time to trust in our God, who allows us to accomplish things that seem bigger than we could ever imagine!”
—Craig Groeschel, pastor of Life.Church and author of #Struggles: Following Jesus in a Selfie-Centered World
“We seek out community in everything we do—and our dreams should be no different. In Chase the Lion, Batterson reminds us to come together, share our dreams, and chase after them. And in doing so, we become not only dream chasers but dream catchers for the others in our pride.”
—Steven Furtick, pastor of Elevation Church and New York Times best-selling author
“Chase the Lion fosters an expansive mind-set that drives our willingness to dream bigger than ever before. This mind-set is a choice, a decision, and a belief that God designed and created each of us for greatness, nothing less. If we aren’t courageous and bold enough to extend ourselves and believe that God will give us the capacity for greatness, we will have cheated our potential. This book is for anyone scared of not achieving the real greatness they are capable of.”
—Buzz Williams, head basketball coach at Virginia Tech
“Mark Batterson’s writing has had a profound impact on my life, both personally and professionally. Join me in accepting Mark’s challenge to pursue a dream so big that only God can turn it into a reality. Life is better when you’re chasing lions!”
—Kirk Cousins, quarterback for the Washington Redskins
“Pastor Mark has done it again! This is a must-read for anyone who has ever felt discouraged or disappointed. Chase the Lion not only helped me take a fresh look at my life’s purpose, but it also gave me the renewed energy to dream big and work hard. Pastor Mark is truly gifted at making God’s Word accessible and encouraging.”
—Mara Schiavocampo, Good Morning America correspondent
“Mark’s books have inspired me and helped me to inspire our team. Straight from God’s Word, Chase the Lion is a great message for any team and for people in every walk of life.”
—John Harbaugh, head coach of the Baltimore Ravens
“Mark Batterson is an outstanding voice among the emerging generation of pastors in the US. He has much wisdom to offer anyone who wants to draw closer to Jesus, combining brilliantly the vision and clarity of a pioneer with the warmth and kindness of a pastor.”
—Nicky Gumbel, vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton
“I just finished Chase the Lion and am in tears, in awe of how my God created me to be a warrior for His great name. Mark’s words force me to ask and answer: What lions am I chasing? What dreams am I dreaming that will make a difference in my children and my children’s children and a hundred years from now?”
—Hugh Freeze Jr., head football coach at the University of Mississippi

I started a book called Chase The Lion. I wasn't even halfway through the book when the proverbial light bulb went off in my head! As I read, "Games aren't won on game day. Games are won in the weight room, the film room, the locker room." I continued to read the chapter and I read this, "I don't know what dream you are chasing, but you have to prove yourself one swing, one rehearsal, one practice, one book at a time." I completed the chapter and realized I was not a failure. I had to try every day, I had to work harder, I could not give up when I had a failure slow me down, it IS one step at a time! It IS trying one more time! It IS failing one more time! It IS not giving up! You got to read this book! It CAN change the way you perceive your dreams! It CAN give you new courage! It CAN put you on the God-given path you should be on! It CAN show you how God will show up for you! I was giving up too easily! I was not a failure! I had to become stronger in my convictions, no giving up! Nothing is won by sitting in a recliner, get up and run to your lion! Chase it! Hunt it! Go for it!
You can do it! This book is well written and so easy to understand the path to chase your lion/dreams! Every word makes sense and each chapter brings you either closer to conviction that you CAN do it or you just don't want to try that hard! I dare you to read it!
Can you picture the Cowardly Lion running down the hallway from the Wizard of Oz? That was me.
I am now making a list of my God sized goals, my God given passions. "I will quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away."
This book is inspiring, thoughtful, encouraging and challenging. I highly recommend reading it.
As Mark says on page 31: "
"over time your favorite scripture becomes the script of your life. The promises of God become the plot line of your life. And the more you rehearse those lines, the more you get into character---the character of Christ. Your life becomes a unique interpretation of that life verse.
This is mine: "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:19
