“As a leader and teacher, Mark Batterson brings imagination, energy, and insight. Mark’s genuine warmth and sincerity spill over into his communication, combining an intense love for his community with a passionate desire to see them living the life God dreams for them. I appreciate his willingness to take bold risks and go to extraordinary lengths to reach our culture with a message that is truly relevant.”

This is the second book that I’ve read by Batterson. And while I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as “IF”, this is still very much a book worth reading. Batterson has the gift of encouragement and that gift is felt as he challenges the reader to be completely unafraid to not only take on the seemingly impossible challenges this life sometimes throws at us…..but to also change the way we see those challenges. Batterson suggests that in each of life’s most difficult moments, is an opportunity for God to work in our situation for our good and His glory.
As with the other Batterson book I read, this one is full of brilliant quotes and bulletin board material. I’d keep the highlighter ready. You’re going to want to take notes.
Batterson is a wonderful, God-inspired writer who keeps the focus on God. His writing flows well and the chapters are broken up into sections that work well as a morning devotional. It is exhilarating, inspiring reading. Read the book, then go chase your lions!
