Mark Batterson is lead pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C., a multi-site congregation that meets in various spots around the city. He’s an excellent communicator, and that is plain in his book In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day (Multnomah). It’s an encouraging book about letting your life challenges become springboards to greatness—or as Mark puts it, the book is “a survival guide for lion chasers.” I’ll guarantee that after you read it you’ll want to preach on Benaiah (2 Sam. 23:20-23).
