Few authors have such passion as Eldridge. The book was pure please from start to end. I had to pause with some of the extraordinary religous hocus pocus, but even though was a great read. The auther gives new meaning about what it means "to be a man".
In fairness, I started this book 3 months ago and haven't returned to it to finish it. After about two hours I was bothered by some of his takes on the bible. While we are both Christians, I have a different take on the fall of Adam and the weaknesses of other biblical characters. If I were reading the book, I could likely skim over these parts a little more easily than I can in an audiobook.
I think is basic premise is valid, men are boys at heart and we want to slay the dragon. We have a need for conflict. This likely explains the popularity of contact sports.
A primer for men (and women also). Fantastic content delivered in a succinct and beautiful way. This is a book that will change your life.
I have come to believe that wild at heart is the single most important resource for men who are on the journey of recovering a life they were made to live.
I'll keep this short and sweet. For any man on his masculine journey as a follower of Christ, this book is a rescue every time. I listen to it periodically throughout the year. That being said, anything Eldredge writes will help you stay in this message and live a life worth inviting others into.
In a day and age when the hearts of men are failing them, this book will help you see the need and help you learn how and why we need to man up. so men grab your swords and lets be the dragon slayers our wifes want us to be, so they will be the lovers we want them to be.
