Publisher's Summary

God designed men to be dangerous, says John Eldredge. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: to be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk.

Sadly, most men abandon those dreams and desires - aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a "nice guy." It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death.

In this provocative book, Eldredge gives women a look inside the true heart of a man and gives men permission to be what God designed them to be - dangerous, passionate, alive, and free.

Women need to listen to this too.

This could’ve saved my marriage had I found this earlier. I was dead inside because I supressed my true desires and fell into being the nice guy, the pushover , the wimp and ultimately felt unloved by the woman I loved because of it. She in turn felt that I wasn’t fighting for her and we both died inside feeling unloved by the other. This makes so much sense. I am striving to face my fears head on and become truly alive now. A great listen and benefit for both men and women!

Top Ten reads of all time for me.

A strong read for all men! Especially those married with children who may have become somewhat passive by the routine/busyness of life. Also for the young men preparing to lead their family. Great read and vey refreshing to my spirit.I love his take on Christian men & the attack on masculinity that's taking place while also calling out false (macho-man/egotistical/prideful) masculinity. Top Ten Reads of all time for me.

Resonating Deep within the Masculine Soul

Listening to Wild At Heart was like taking a giant swig from a canteen on a mountaintop - a much needed relief, very deeply satisfying.

Very practical truths

There are some very good nuggets I took away from this book. So much so that I'll probably listen it again as I finished this in less than a day. Any man would find this book worthwhile and wives would as well.

Besides a few false doctrines it was fantastic!

There were a few gospel doctrines that were false, but the story and message were great and an almost perfect representation of real men and how we think and look at life.
