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.
This book gave me an insight into the minds and hearts of boys. Being a wife and mom of 2 boys it gave me a perspective of how God sees men and created them to be. I recommend this book to everyone!
I do my best to follow Jesus by being a husband, a father, a lawyer, and a preacher
This book cuts through the lies of society to establish a definition of manhood from a biblical perspective.
This book is unlike anything I have ever read. I first read Wild At Heart in college, and now coming back to it 12 years later, I am just as moved as I was then.
I have not.
It was so freeing to see how much scripture lined up with my own passions and logic. I have given this book to about a dozen men. I've never known one of them to disagree.
Absolutely worth the time.
ima vet and a christian with strong viewpoints and learned more than ever about reassuring myself and my faith and to be honest not care what all these pansies think and move forward and never doubt myself or my faith
