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.
In Wild at Heart, John 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.

"The exceptional writing and ideational balance (and a sensitive interpretation by Kelly Dolan) make this a compelling effort to integrate the hero's gritty nature with the public good." (AudioFile)
Wild at Heart was dropped into my hand at a time of personal crisis. My life was upside down and inside out. Having walked with the Lord for 27 years I had answers to many of the questions that we, as men, ask oursevles. Yet some of the most important questions had gone unanswered or worse were never really asked.
John carefully and successfully opened up my heart as no other man has (excpet Jesus) and delivered Healing, Understanding and Passion.
His writing style is personal and easy. I highly recommend Wild at Heart.
All I can say is WOW and I wish I had known some of these things before we had our 3 sons! This is a book for everyone! No nonsense and right in line with the scriptures. Read and be blessed!
I just had problems at reading this book. It is not because I am not religious, or I do not know the scriptures from the Bible, but too much masculinity on how to become a real man. It is almost like we are going back to the cavemen's era on how to become a man.
Man should hunt. Man should fight. Man should kill. Man should have "man time".
The last final straw for me was when Eldredge tries explains on how should women used their godly gift to arouse their man, but yet man should not be tempted to pornography and the outside world. It's a catch 22 because Eldredge is saying that man should ask his woman to degrade herself for his pleasure, but yet stay away from other temptations?
I was looking forward at this book by learning the scriptures and how to become a man, but it's all about Eldredge's personal views with scriptures and his own made up examples
I just don't get it. I was hoping for more, but this book is just personal beliefs without a thesis from the scriptures.
Excellent book, really gave me insight not only into the masculine heart but my heart also. John has a way with words that speak not only in the mind but into the soul.
My husband and I both loved this book, we listened to it more than once. It helped us to understand the basis for the core differences between man and woman, and why we need each other. It helped me to understand the vulnerabilities my husband has, even though he tries hard to hide them.
Just when you think you're a man & that life is good...this read (or listen) brings you down to reality and let's you know you are far from being a "man of God." Perhaps if you're reading this, your marraige isn't the same as it was during that first year. Perhaps adding your own children into the mix has changed many of the reasons you married in the first place. Find out what truly makes you tick and empty that closet of all the cobwebs. Perhaps, rediscover your marriage and learn how to be a man of God! It may be one of many ways to prevent the generational pass down of poor fatherhood...or at least the realization of it.
Fabulous!! Eldredge hits a Home Run with this crucial work. Any of us who have struggled with what society has tried to force us to do and not asked us or allowed us to be the man God intended us to be, needs to read this awesome work.
This book is timeless and will continute to help men return to the strong physical, spiritual and emotional leaders God created them to be.
Went through this book and materials for the book at a mens study at church this past winter. Was totally any eye opener..Now that I have it downloaded, I can listen to the book while driving down the road..And each time a little more is discovered...I cannot recomend this book highly enough..And will say to read the companion book "Captivating" for the women..Has shone me just how badly I have treated the women in my life....Is a shame though to find this out so late in life..Men I do hope you get into this book, and take it too heart, as soon as you can in life..The rewads are there just waiting for you..
This is an excellent book for men desperate to find true masculinity. Real men are not just nice guys. John gives you permission to be dangerous, adventurous, a warrior, the man you really want to be deep down inside, the man God created you to be. Get it now!
