Chase The Lion by Mark Batterson
How big is your dream? Or another question is: how large is your courage?
Books cross my desk from time to time that expand the region of concepts. This is one of them.
The point is we need to consider our approach to life. Will we play it safe or venture out and stretch? Will we stop fearing failure and dream big dreams which may scare us?
Our dreams should push our faith and provide an opportunity for God to show up and show His power. Most of the time we just act as though all the Christian life is about if getting up each morning and on Sunday we go to service and sit and listen to the sermon.
Batterson suggests it is best lived as a life of dreams.
This is not a text book. Rather it is a dream casting. In the 218 pages plus notes we are urged to think big. A change of pace + change of place = change of perspective. The outcome isn’t the issue. It is the obeying that is important.
This is the book for those who need the encouragement to try new things. It will give you the fuel for your tank and the assurance you need that someone has your back.
This book was sent to me free from blogging for books.com(http://www.bloggingforbooks.com) for the purpose of a review. There was no requirement that I like it. But I do. You will like it also.
