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...

    A challenging book for us "Bilbo Baggins" types, who tend to enjoy our comforts and shun anything remotely dangerous. Batterson's book is a wake-up call!
  • (5/5)
    This book was very inspiring and motivating and really brought home as confirmation many of the things God wants me to do! It also helped me to thrown down some things God doesn’t want me to do. I would recommend this book to anyone searching for God’s will for their lives and a road map to the purpose God brought you into the earth! ET

    I won this book in a giveaway. I read that the author is a pastor of National Community Church in Washington, DC--a happening church. Since I was raised in DC, I entered the giveaway. Boy, am I glad that I won!Chock full of wisdom, this small book is filled with sermon-type discussions on the things of God. The author surprises with chapter 2 "Goose Bumps," when he tells the reader to stop praying. He challenges with chapter 4 "Eight-foot Ceilings," with the background story of the Wright Brothers. And he encourages with chapter 6 "Sometimes It Takes a Shipwreck" when he tells of a disappointment in his life.This is a good devotional book for an individual, an excellent source for a Bible study group to use chapter by chapter, and an all-around worthy read.
