Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mark Batterson's Wild Goose Chase detonates anemic Christianity masquerading as the ‘real thing’ and winsomely propels us to what can be and should be if we allow God's Spirit to be all He can be in our lives. Let it stretch you to greater things

- Louie Giglio, Passion Conferences, speaker and author of How Great Is Our God, Indescribable, and I am not but I know I AM

Wild Good Chase puts the advent back in adventure, and frees us all to find out how risk can be another word for faith.

- Leonard Sweet, Drew University, George Fox University, sermons.com

Mark Batterson is down-to-earth and humble-yet constantly pushes me to grow. I follow him as a leader, admire him as an innovator, and love him as a friend. Mark has become one of the most important voices for a new generation. Anything he touches changes lives.

- Craig Groeschel, pastor of Lifechurch.tv, author of Going All the Way

As a leader and teacher, Mark Batterson brings imagination, energy, and insight. Mark's genuine warmth and sincerity spill over into his communication, combining an intense love for his community with a passionate desire to see them living the life God dreams for them. I appreciate his willingness to take bold risks and go to extraordinary lengths to reach our culture with a message that is truly relevant.

- Ed Young, senior pastor, Fellowship Church

A thoughtful and energetic leader, Mark Batterson presses us to consider how we live out our faith in the world around us. When Mark has something to say, I am quick to listen.

- Frank Wright, PhD, President and CEO, National Religious Broadcasters

Mark's passion for God and our generation is contagious. His writing is honest and insightful. Go ahead-chase the lion

- Margaret Feinberg, author of The Organic God, for In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day

Mark Batterson is one of the church's most forward thinkers. In this book, he compels us to look both behind and ahead to discover answers to the ‘whys' in our lives. In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day helps us make sense of this beautiful mess we call life.

- Lindy Lowry, editor, Outreach magazine

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Invites readers to choose the wild and unknown over the safe and known everyday, in a work that clears up misconceptions about decision making and discipleship. Original.

Synopsis:

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….

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
