Publisher's Summary

From childhood on, something or Someone has called us on a journey of the heart. It is a journey full of intimacy, adventure, beauty, and more than a little danger. The Sacred Romance calls to us in our fondest memories, our greatest loves, our noblest achievements, even our deepest hurts. The reward is worth the risk. God Himself longs for us, if we are but willing.

First published in 1997, The Sacred Romance is quietly on its way to becoming a classic. Why have so many people connected so powerfully to the book? Authors Brent Curtis and John Eldredge put words to long-forgotten feelings. They voice our unspoken fears about God's goodness and our own emptiness. Without being preachy or cliche, the authors offer a glimpse of God's heart that is tender, risky, and compelling. The Sacred Romance is the story of our lives; it is God's story. It is His invitation to experience the beauty, intimacy, and adventure we secretly desire.

The MOST INCREDIBLE book I have ever read.

I ended Up starting over from the beginning several times, not because I couldn’t understand it but rather because I wanted to get more and more out of it with each read. This is become the best book I have ever read in my lifetime. I encourage anyone who sees it to read it as well!

Personal Growth Guaranteed

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book has a unbelievable message about the soul. We have all experienced "arrows" as they call it in the book, or "hurts" in our lives whether we know it or not. This book helps you sort through your past and grow with a great understanding of who you were meant to be. I passionately loved this book. This will be a book you should read or listen to multiple times, or go through the audio and then dig into the book. Beautifully written!

too abstract for me. Nothing to relate.

Very hard read. Not anything substantial to grasp my attention or things that related to my life. but that is just me, others may get more understanding from it.

Incredible book about an incredible God

Amazing book. The way God spoke to me through this was such a huge event in my journey with Him. I am grateful for the gifts God gave Brent and John to provide us with such a book. I would recommend it to anyone.

As a side note, it would help to fix the chapter divisions ;)

Great book

I loved this book. it really made me stop anf think and see things with a different perspective. From the first page it spoke to me. Its like the authors knew what I was feeling in my heart and wrote about it just for me. I will definitely re-read.

Reasonable take on the sacred,over the top empathy

I generally enjoyed the approach to drawing closer to God, but was a bit put off by some of the sappiness of both the writing and reading.
