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 five hundred pound problem, they see an opportunity for God to show up and show His power..
Chase the Lion is more than a catch phrase; 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 bestselling author Mark Batterson delivers a bold message to everyone with a big dream.
Quit playing it safe and start running towards 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!
The first thing that caught my attention about this book was the title, Chase The Lion: If Your Dream Doesn’t Scare You, It’s Too Small. As an avid reader, I have come across a lot of books with catchy titles, but I found myself repeating this title to myself while I was at work, home, and even out running errands.
When I did find some quiet time to open the book – I was unable to close it. True Story: I read The Lion Chaser’s Manifesto at least five times before I began reading the book. One of the things I love about this book was the stories he shared. It’s a good thing to hear about faith but it’s even better when you are given examples of how GOD moved and is continuing to move in other people’s lives – including ours.
The Bible is full of field-of-dream moments.
Imagination is God’s gift to you
Chase the Lion challenges the reader to look their “Lion” aka fears/hurdles directly in the eye and run towards them. RUN TO THE ROAR!!! The author writes with such candor it’s as if he is sitting right across from you encouraging you along that way. I think I have carpal tunnel from using my highlighter so much while reading this book.
If you need encouragement – Buy this book!
If you have a dream in your heart – Buy this book!
I promise you – you won’t be disappointed!!
