“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 Battersons 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!"

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:
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.

mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Best book I have read in awhileFebruary 4, 2012mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mark 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.
