BOOK REVIEW: WILD GOOSE CHASE
Wild Goose Chase is the second book by Mark Batterson, founder and leader of National Community Church in Washington, DC. His first book, In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day, sold very well. I am sure that this book will as well.

Full of examples from his own life as well as from others, Wild Goose Chase breaks down some of the key things that, according to the author, often prevent us from living our lives fully for God. It looks at more than just being bold and courageous (covered well in his first book) to look at the twists and turns that following God will bring to our lives. Batterson examines how God prepares us along the way for those twists and turns but we must still be willing to follow them.

He closes the book with a list of very concise but yet powerful directives that are covered previously in the book.

This is a great book if you're willing to explore your God call. Additionally, it helps a person examine what they're really living for. Sometimes I feel like I am living only with the desire to reach eventual retirement and then enjoy life. This book points out just how short-sighted and shallow that thinking is.

Hi, I am on the Threads team at LifeWay. Mark worked with Threads to write his Bible study based on In a Pit called Chase the Lion. He is also writing the study based on Wild Goose Chase that will release from Threads next year. I just thought you might be interested since you liked the book. You can check it out at www.threadsmedia.com/studies
Thanks!- Jenny Williams
