Every man was once a boy. And every little has dreams, big dreams, dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty.

But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man? Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are . . . bored.

John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic, Wild at Heart , and in it invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man's soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer. John Eldredge is the director of Ransomed Heart

One of our guest pastors said during his message that this was his favorite author. I thought I'd read this book which seems to be his most popular, but the other Comment posted here says it is no good. I guess I will have to find out for myself. But I do know that, looking at the book on Amazon, it is listed as their #1 Book on Christian Men's Issues. It would be interesting to know what the views are of the person who posted the other very negative comment. Copied from Amazon: #1 in Books > Christian Books & Bibles > Christian Living > Men's Issues.

From the back cover: "In Wild at Heart, John Eldredge invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God." This book is controversial, professing to be Christian but often travelling way beyond Biblical teachings. Eldredge invites the reader to wake up and find the inner passion that drives them to a full life. A man who spends his time trying to please his wife is missing the point: where is the adventure that they could be sharing together? Depending on your point of view this book is either inspiring or self-centred. Personally, I felt spiritually nourished by it. (I hope God agrees.)
