Mark Batterson – Wild Goose Chase

Not done reading the book yet so here is a 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.

I will post my review as soon as I am done with it, but so far it is very good.

I did actually finish the book about a month ago now but the passing of my father really threw me for a loop and I just realized that I never posted my review. I really liked the book and plan to read through it again so I can refresh myself. But I did feel challenged to the overall call of the book to not always play it safe and trust that God’s plan will be better than anything I can plan even if it does not make sense at the time.
