I read several blogs every single day. They are on my every-single-day list because of various reasons, but one of the blogs is on there because it regularly stretches me with thought-provoking stuff.
The blog is called Evotional.com (subscribe HERE), and it is written by Mark Batterson.
Mark Batterson is the lead pastor of Washington, DC's National Community Church, widely recognized as one of America's most innovative churches. NCC meets in movie theaters at metro stops throughout the city, as well as in a church-owned coffee house near Union Station. More than seventy percent of NCC'ers are single twentysomethings who live or work on Capitol Hill. Mark is the author of the best-selling In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day.
Well, I am honored to say that I was given a preview copy of Mark's latest book, Wild Goose Chase, which will be released on August 19.
I read it in its entirety in less than three hours, and I think every single person who has spent time wondering what they have been put on earth to do should read this book.
Mark writes, "Most of us have no idea where we're going most of the time. Perfect." So true.
As you read through this book, you will understand that the journey is way more important than knowing your future destination. Mark writes about six cages that can leave you feeling disoriented, disillusioned, and frustrated with life. He is spot on with his observations.
In his mission to provide next steps for folks, Mark and his team have created a web site called Chase The Goose. I love it when ideas are moved into practical application.
You can pre-order your copy today at Amazon, and it will ship on August 19.
By the way, I was given one extra copy, and I will give it away FREE. Who will receive it? The person who provides the most compelling reason in the comments section of this post. I will be the sole judge of the most compelling reason and will mail the book out on August 18th.
