    Title: The Wild Goose Chase: Reclaim the Adventure of Pursuing God

    Author: Mark Batterson

    Date I Finished Reading: January 19,2013

    My Rating: 5/5

    When you think of pursuing God, what comes to your mind? Duty? Struggle? How about adventure? Do you ever view your walk with God as an exciting, adventurous thing? In this book, Mark Batterson discusses spiritual barriers that can prevent us from growing closer to God, or finding satisfaction in him. He explores the barriers of:

    ~responsibility

    ~routine

    ~assumptions

    ~guilt

    ~failure

    ~fear

    He discusses how each of these things can, at times hinder us from growth, and the signs of them in our lives.

    One thing I liked about this book would be Batterson's writing style. He writes with honest humor that makes the book an easy, enjoyable read. I also liked how applicable this book is. The issues addressed and the actions recommended are practical and applicable to our personal and daily lives.

    I really had no complaints about this book, besides the fact that Batterson becomes a bit repetitive at times. Other than that, I have none!

    I would highly recommend this book to you, especially if you are struggling with spiritual growth and desire a resource to help you identify what barrier may be hindering you from pursuing and growing closer to God.

    Note: I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. However, my opinions are my own.

    WILD GOOSE CHASE Reclaim the Adventure of Pursuing God by Mark Batterson __ Mark start his book explaining the title, the title is what the Celtic Christians calls the Holy Spirit. As Mark states, "The name hints at the mysterious nature of the Holy Spirit. Much like a wild goose, the Spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed". Mark offer a collection of interesting stories that has happen to him and others and gives a very interesting outline for us to follow the Spirit of god. The book is short, but gives a great direction to follow God. At the end of each chapter, Mark offers questions for you to answer or to discuss by a group in a Bible study. We all need to let the Holy Spirit guide our life and stop following what we want. Get the book you will be happy you did.

    This review was written for Wild Goose Chase.
    Mark Batterson brings a fresh look at the existence and purpose of the Holy Spirit. He compares the Holy Spirit to a wild goose in that it is unpredictable and adventurous. He explores the reasons why Christians are bored and not living the adventurous and exciting life in the Spirit. He gives the reader six "cages" that keep Christians from being wild for God. The cages of responsibility, routine, assumptions, guilt, failure, and fear make up the body of the text. Peppered with personal stories and provocative examples, this book is bound to elicit the question of every reader, "Why haven't I been chasing the Wild Goose?"

    From a personal standpoint, the book has encouraged me to pursue godly ambition and that it is alright to not have any idea where to go from here. We are not guaranteed to know where we are going, but to know with whom we are going. If we pursue Jesus passionately, we will naturally be taking a roller coaster ride of a lifetime and to be challenged not to make a living, but to make a life. This book receives a thumbs up in my opinion.

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.
