Book Review: Wild Goose Chase

Free is good.

I recently happened across the offer of a free book for the willingness to review it here (this is part of a "blog tour"). I was even given two copies so I could give one away on the blog.

I just got the book the other day, so here's some info about the book and author until I can read and review.

Summary from the Intro (which is weird because the copy I had didn't have a section labeled intro)
BlockquoteMost 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.”

Author Bio from the Publisher
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 (my note: A great coffeehouse. I've been there several times to work for a day. Very high quality.). 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 (www.markbatterson.com). He lives on Capitol Hill with his wife, Lora, and their three children.

Dunno. Maybe to the first person to make a comment about it??

I think I like that idea...free books are the best.
