In a Pit With a Lion On a Snowy Day

Y’all. This title. Can we just stop for a moment and all say that title out loud together? I like talking about this book simply for the sake of saying the title. In fact, sometimes when I’m driving by myself I say the title just because it feels like I’m telling a whole story or singing a song instead of quoting the title of a book.

Anyway. To the review.

Title: In a Pit With a Lion On a Snowy Day
Author: Mark Batterson



1. You want the inspiration to get out there and do what you’re supposed to be doing? This book will give you the shove that you need while being interesting, entertaining, and full of truth.
2. With the Bible as the guide, this book talks about living the life God meant for you to live. So, it’s not the “you can do whatever you want because you’re powerful” mumble-jumble. Instead, it’s “you can do what God created you to do because He’s working through you” type of truth.
3. The author shares real-life stories – both from today’s day and age and from the Bible – that will help remind you of what the important things in life are.

1. It does get a bit redundant, and that’s actually the only negative thing I have to say about the book. See, it really was a great book.


Y’all should probably read this book. Request it from your library or splurge to have such a cool title on your shelf. You can always pass it along when you’re done reading it because you probably know someone who needs the message the book provides.

I gave In a Pit With a Lion On a Snowy Day four out of five stars. And, I don’t have any review sites/publishers to thank for providing this gem, because I bought it instead of receiving it for review. 😉
