good life tools!

Would you consider the audio edition of Fathered By God to be better than the print version?

as a man that didn't have a dad,and turns to god ,but needs understanding on how to move forward. this was a push or a leap that helped me get over the gap holding me back in life!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fathered By God?

in the beginning with the bears, i didn't get it. but by the end it laid the footsteps!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

i was moved to find out what stage i am in and what stage i missed so i could transfer into the next stage correctly.

Everyman’s Journey

There’s a great deal of debate nowadays about the basic concept of masculinity and it’s role in modern society. The debate on what constitutes a “real man” likely isn’t going away anytime soon. However, speaking from my own experience, a man’s journey is rough and often fraught with peril. Because of this, young boys rarely become fully functioning adult men without good guidance along the way.

In this book, John Eldridge provides some of that all too often missing guidance. Drawing mostly from Bible (and The Lord of the Rings), Eldridge manages to provide a highly compelling map of the various stages along the masculine journey. I’m not sure I agree with everything contained within this book (I would have cut that weird rant against video games in the middle), but I found his wisdom to be truly invaluable for understanding the life of a man.

As for the performance, I’m typically a big fan of an author narrating his own audiobook and this is no exception. Pro’s tip: Listen to this while hiking; it pushes Eldridge’s story to the next level. Highly recommended!

Excellent book for any man!

I love this book and the author's other books in regards to men growing up and finding yourself! In my opinion this author stands above and beyond anyone else on the topic!

So much goodness

A beautifully written work to help untangle the mess humanity has made of masculinity. Listen with your heart open and vulnerable.

A Multiple Must Listen

This is one of those books, that every-time i listen to it... it hits me in a whole new way. I love that John narrates his own books... for me, it gives me the personality behind his words.

I give this my highest recommendation.

Great ext.of Wild@Heart but,better 4heart healing.

Glad for another approach to getting to the needs of man.His heart and honor and to review where our dads probably fell short at giving the blessing of godly manhood.
