Wild Goose Chase

Author: Mark Batterson
Publisher: Multnomah
ISBN: 978-1-59052-719-1
Genre: Inspirational/Christian living

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 re going most of the time. And I know that is unsettling. But circumstantial uncertainy also goes by another name: Adventure. (From the back cover)

The book contains chapters with such interesting titles such as”

 Yawning Angels
 Dictatorship of the Ordinary
 Eight-Foot Ceilings
 A Rooster’s Crow
 Good Old-Fashioned Cuts

And others, that it first glance seem to have nothing to do with anything – except, possibly taking you on a Wild Goose Chase. But with interesting stories, thoughts, and applications, Mr. Batterson makes his point, and then even includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter. I would like have seen lines there so you could record your thoughts, but that is what notebooks are for, so you don’t deface books.

All in all I’d say that this book does give you something to think about. $13.99. 183 pages.
