Book: Wild Goose Chase

I'm reading a new book, Wild Goose Chase by Mark Batterson (author of "In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day"). It is GREAT! He brings the adventure back to being a Christian. I recommend this to anyone looking for something more from their faith than just going to church and trying to "just get by" in life. Read it and put it into life practice... I plan to. Thank you Mark. You really nailed this one.

Check out this link for more about the book. You can purchase the book at a great bookstore or you can order it from amazon.

This is a summary and author bio from the publisher

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.

Mark Batterson is the lead pastor of Washington, DC’s National Community Church, widely recognized as one of America’s most innovative churches. NCC meets in movie theaters at metro stops throughout the city, as well as in a church-owned coffee house near Union Station. More than seventy percent of NCC’ers are single twentysomethings who live or work on Capitol Hill. Mark is the author of the best-selling In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day and a widely read blogger (http://www.markbatterson.com/). He lives on Capitol Hill with his wife, Lora, and their three children.
