Wild Goose Chase
back in the fall my small group read a book titled In a Pit With a Lion on a Snowy Day by Mark Batterson. his blog has also been on my daily read list for quite a while. his second book releases today, and it’s titled Wild Goose Chase. i received a copy from the publisher to review for when it hits the shelves today. i kind of bummed because it didn’t come before i left for Peru, and i haven’t gotten a chance to finish it yet since i got back on sunday night. there will be a full review forthcoming, but here’s a few things for you right now:
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.
i also have a second copy of the book to give away! all you have to do is leave a comment on this post, and a winner will be selected at the end of the week. go!
