As a Man, I can't buy into everything that John Eldredge sells, but overall the points are strong. If nothing else every Man could benefit from some introspection.

In this book, Eldredge 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.

My husband thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Very deep and thought provoking. Every man, young and old should take the time to meditate on the message in this book.

If Christian men are going to become men who are made in the image of God, they must reexamine their idea about who God is and recover their true "wild" hearts. Discovering a Life of Passion, Freedom, and Adventure. Eldredge points out that men are bored; they fear risk, they refuse to pay attention to their deepest desires. He challenges Christian men to return to real masculinity without becoming the fake "macho man". Men often seek value in work, or the conquest of women, the author suggets. He urges men to take time out and come to grips with the "secret longings" of their hearts.
This is geared mainly toward men, but it will also help women understand the effect real masculinity on their relationships with men.
The author uses his outdoor experiences and stories about his family. He points out the only way a man can be all that their heart was made to desire is thru an ongoing, intimate relationship with God." --

Loved it, loved it. It set me free and by giving me a glimpse into the make-up of the male soul, it actually gave me some answers about my own. And it helped me to make peace with a lost relationship. I strongly reccomend.

Great book! I love the way the author really speaks to your heart...on the other hand, constantly drawing parallels between the movies and real life doesn't really ring true with me, since the movies aren't real...anywho, still a great read!

Everybody should read this book. A wonderful depiction of God's true design of men.

The one thing I can say about this writer is that he believes that God is not in control of the future nor is He in control of it. Do your own research. So be careful what you learn from.

This is book is quite disappointing, as it rests on stereotypical gender roles/depictions to define men and women within the Christian context. Eldredge attempts to define the "True man" but in doing so neglects a large proportion (if not the majority)of men who do not fall into this hyper-masculine portrayal. In addition for someone who gives such prominence to women within the needed accomplishments of each man's life, they rarely appear in good depiction within the book. The book also sits firmly within the realm of elitism. The imagery of this book is no doubt attractive but, only a small proportion of the population can actually live such expensive lives. Lastly, and of greatest importance, there are serious theological issues in within its pages as its central claim is human-centric and has little to do with kingdom.
