BookSneeze Book review- Wild at Heart- revised/Expanded

John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic.

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.

If you are a woman, Wild at Heart will give you a peek under the hood of the men in your life. If you are a man, here's your chance to think about things that you would normally probably only ever talk about with a counselor or your best friend.

How often have you stepped back and thought of what it means to simply be a man? The focus in most books is on roles: our roles as a spouse, in our career, as a parent. Most men are bored, he says. Most women are tired.

According to Eldredge, men have three basic desires: adventure, a battle to fight, a beauty to rescue. Again and again he emphasizes that he's not promoting some He Man image and again and again he says that God is the source of true masculinity.

This book changed my husband's life- before he read this book and before he went to the bootcamp that Ransomed Heart offers he was not a christian but after reading this book and attending boot camp he got it and accepted christ.

the message in this book changed our lives.
