Publisher's Summary

The Challenge Before You Is a Bold One: To Accept the Wild, Daring Adventure of Becoming a Man

We want to be self-sufficient. Find our own direction as we pursue our dreams. Know it all and never ask for help. Isn't this how most guys approach manhood? On our own, pretending we are doing better than we really are? But sooner or later the thrill of independence gets lost in the fog of isolation. It's time to take the pressure off. We were never meant to figure life out on our own. This book was born out of a series of weekly phone calls between Sam Eldredge, a young writer in his twenties, and his dad, bestselling author John Eldredge. Join the conversation as a father and son talk about pursuing beauty, dealing with money, getting married, chasing dreams, knowing something real with God, and how to find a life you can call your own.

Killing Lions is more than fatherly advice. It is an invitation into a journey: either to be the son who receives fathering or the father who learns what must be spoken. Most important, these conversations speak to a searching generation: "You are not alone. Its not all up to you. You are going to find your way."

    "A must for every son!"

    I wish I had this book when my son was still at home. However, I will still share this with him and pray it will open avenues for discussion between us as he begins his journey as a husband and father. Thank you John and Sam for sharing this life giving conversation!

    "Timely!"

    This is a timely, much-needed guide for this generation of young men. It is more like sitting in on a conversation between father and son than listening to or reading a book. Excellent!

    "too much God."

    I would expect something more practical and universal from the book on parenting. should be marked as a book about religion, not about parenting.

    "everyone needs to hear this story. "

    The Eldridge men create an insightful unveiling of modern man's struggles against a post manly society.

    "If you have sons, you should read this book!"

    I was surprised at the honesty and transparency of the authors. It showed me how seriously they felt about needing to share the important lessons and truths about manhood.
    I bought this book for my son who is in his 20's, and did not grow up with a good father figure in his life, and he too was surprised at its honesty and the valuable lessons and truths shared in the book.
    Well done.
    The father-son dialogue in the audio version helped me to feel as if I was eves dropping in their conversation, which lent to the intimacy of their dialogue. I really loved this book.

    "Masterfully handled"

    I really did not expect to love hearing the authors read their own work. Having both the Father and Son speak through their parts really lender credibility to the overall concept.

    They did a great job at building concepts that then lead to the next level of conversation. Overall, a very well done and useable analysis of a discussion to a young man growing up and making very critical transitions to manhood.

    "Really good! Totally recommend"

    This was exactly what I needed. I'm a late 20s guy wrestling with the same stuff Sam Eldredge is, so this book helped me out a lot.

    "Wonderfull, This is a must for all men."

    This book didn't just make me realize that I was rushing into a relationship but that I had to revise my entire life and see life from a new angle. This is a must for all men.
