Publisher's Description

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

Editorial Reviews

 "Mark Batterson’s Wild Goose Chase detonates anemic Christianity masquerading as the ’real thing’ and winsomely propels us to what can be and should be if we allow God's Spirit to be all He can be in our lives. Let it stretch you to greater things!"
- Louie Giglio, Passion Conferences, speaker and author of How Great Is Our God, Indescribable, and I am not but I know I AM

- Craig Groeschel, pastor of Lifechurch.tv, author of Going All the Way

"As a leader and teacher, Mark Batterson brings imagination, energy, and insight.

- Lindy Lowry, editor, Outreach magazine
