This book is on my list of all-time favorite books! I underlined so many great nuggets. It is based on a scripture passage in 2 Samuel 23:30-21 which is about Benaiah who instead of running away from a lion, chases it into a pit and kills it.
You will be challenged to chase your fears instead of running away from them. You learn more about who God is, about yourself, about spiritual maturity, and about the "big picture".
Mark Batterson discusses regret. He says we will have more regrets over what we haven't done or tried in life, than we will have over things we tried that failed. He adds a good section on prayer as well.
I recommend this book to anyone in any stage of life.
