Book Review

Wild Goose Chase
by Mark Batterson
Multnomah 2008

Reviewed by Diane Busch

"Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit "An Geadh Glas" - the wild goose. Much like a wild goose, the Spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed." Following the call of the Holy Spirit can be like chasing a wild goose. (Not in a straight line, quite adventurous, and you don't know where it will lead you.) Mark challenges us that six cages keep us from roaming free with the wild goose and living the spiritual adventure God has for us.
1. Cage of responsibility
2. Cage of routine
3. Cage of assumption
4. Cage of guilt
5. Cage of failure
6. Cage of fear
Mark helps us identify the things that hold us back from following God with all our heart, soul, mind and life. Along with the challenges, he offers scriptures and solutions to help us get free from the cages. I highly recommend this book for Christ followers who are ready for more -- more adventure; more challenge; more fun; more risk; more purpose. Get ready for a wild ride!
