Publisher's Summary

What Wild at Heart did for men, Captivating is doing for women: setting their hearts free. This groundbreaking audiobook shows listeners the glorious design of women before the fall, describes how the feminine heart can be restored, and casts a vision for the power, freedom, and beauty of a woman released to be all she was meant to be.

By revealing the core desires every woman shares - to be romanced, to play an irreplaceable role in a grand adventure, and to unveil beauty - John and Stasi Eldredge invite women to recover their feminine hearts, created in the image of an intimate and passionate God. Further, they encourage men to discover the secret of a woman's soul and to delight in the beauty and strength women were created to offer.

    "This will change you"
    What did you love best about Captivating?

    This is not just for women, husband please discover some of the world changing factors on women and why we are so attack. How to come out of the cycle of not feeling like we're good enough or we are just too much.
    This audio/book dramatically changed my view point. Audio was good for me because I had to get through the first few chapter, but chapter 6 had me captured and in tears.
    I a Christian women who has been walking with God since I was 16, a soldier in the United States military and I never saw my brokensss until I listen to this audio.
    I have since order all the bible study material because I feel this is a message every women and man needs to hear.
    I did not know that I had fears and wounds that dictated how I presented myself until I realized what those wounds and fears were.
    I didn't even know I was broken.

    "From a man's perspective"

    The book Fathered by God was so good that I had to read Captivating to see God's perspective on women. It really opened my eyes to how beautiful A woman is and what her beauty is supposed to look like. Both this book, Captivating, and the men's book, Fathered by God, are worth a lifetime of study.

    "Awesome!"
    What did you love best about Captivating?

    I was left with a wonderful feeling of love-that I was loved -by Jesus, and no matter what, He loves me. So much love, warmth, and healing radiates from this book. I am going to listen to it again to allow more of the words and wisdom to "permeate my being"! I am not meaning to sound like a "new age guru", but this is a really positive book to listen to -well worth the time and money invested!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved listening to the personal experiences Stack shared.


    What does John Eldredge and Stasi Eldredge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They are both wonderful narrators, and bring a tremendous sense of realism and warmth!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to listen all at once, but do to time, I did take some breaks! I did listen to it all in one day, though, and will hopefully do the same again today!!!

    "Finally, the truth made clear..."

    As a baby boomer, I've seen the erosion of biblical truth about male and female throughout my life. My relationship with my wife was distant and defeating, though we put up a front of being a good Christian couple. She has passed away now, but should God ever bring another partner into my life, it will be based on the truths revealed in this book, and His Word.

    "Amazing insights!"

    I was blown away by this book. I had never considered why Eve was the target of Satan's attack in the Garden of Eden or why he continues to persecute women today and I found the authors' suggestions very insightful. I also appreciated the differences between men and women being highlighted and was reminded of other books that have covered this topic such as Bringing Up Boys by Dr. James Dobson. This book has made me want to go back and listen to Wild at Heart again and I have added every book by John Eldridge to my Wishlist on Audible.

    "A blessing in disguise"

    I'm so grateful to have read this book. It will forever change my faith, it grew me tremendously. I have a boyfriend that is renewing his faith, at the same time that I have found mine. We have 8 kids between us, ranging from 4yrs old up to 16yrs old. 4 girls and 4 boys. One question we've had continuously is how can we help them find Jesus, find this new love that we couldn't really explain....up until this book that is. We now have direction for our own relationship plus a direction to go in with our beloved babies. Thank you both so much!!!! May God continue to bless the both of you in your ministry! And I pray that I learn quickly how to be the woman I was meant to be in God's eyes, so that I can be the example that our 8 children need so desperately to see...
