Wild Goose Chase- Book Review Part 1
One of my favorite books in the last couple of years is "In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day" by Mark Batterson. So when the chance came up to recieve two free copies of his next book, "Wild Goose Chase" by reviewing it on my blog I jumped at the chance. Unfortunatly since I was out of town last week I will not get a chance to review the book before its' release date on Aug. 19th. I will post my review when I get back from vactation next week. Below I have included the book summary and the author's bio information. I look forward to reading this book this week and again I will have my review posted next week.

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.
