I wasn’t sure what to expect when I saw the title of this book. When I think of a wild goose chase I think of pursuing something that is worthless. However, Batterson’s definition is very different. He uses the image of a goose to symbolize the Holy Spirit. He continues to explain that too often Christians expect the Holy Spirit to chase them rather than chasing the Spirit.
Wild Goose Chase is an amazing book that focuses on the Holy Spirit. If I put the plot in a nutshell, it would be “Submit to the Spirit.” When we totally submit, we follow wherever the Spirit leads. We have no idea where that will be; we just follow, willingly with faith.
Wild Goose Chase’s target audience is Christians. This book assumes there is a Biblical, Spiritual background. Mark Batterson’s writing style is conversational and easy to understand. I see this book as a call for Spiritual Revival. All Christians would benefit from reading Wild Goose Chase.
