Wild Goose Chase

I got a copy of Mark Batterson's upcoming book "Wild Goose Chase" in the mail on Saturday and I've really been enjoying reading it. I'll be posting a full review in about a week, but let me wet your appetite by saying that the book is fun to read, inspiring in content and in much the same voice as Batterson's last book "In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day."

Here is the book summary:

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.
