Wild Goose Chase

A couple of years ago, I had an opportunity to read and review In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day by Mark Batterson.  It was a great book and led to some really exciting conversations with some of our staff and seniors.

I came across the opportunity to read and review Mark Batterson’s new book Wild Goose Chase a few weeks ago, and it showed up in the mail yesterday.  I started on it last night and am pretty certain I’ll have no trouble finishing it up tonight!  Great read…lots of challenging stuff.  The book releases officially today (August 19). Check out the Chase the Goose website.

I’ll be giving away a copy this week to the first person who asks for it.

Here’s a little about the book…

Most of us have no idea where we’re going most of the time. Perfect.

“Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit—An Geadh-Glas, or ‘the Wild Goose.’ The name hints at mystery. Much like a wild goose, the Spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed. An element of danger, an air of unpredictability surround Him. And while the name may sound a little sacrilegious, I cannot think of a better description of what it’s like to follow the Spirit through life. I think the Celtic Christians were on to something….

Most of us will have no idea where we are going most of the time. And I know that is unsettling. But circumstantial uncertainty also goes by another name: Adventure.” –from the introduction.
