What Wild at Heart did for men, Captivating can do for women. This groundbreaking book shows readers 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.

"Every woman should read!"
Great book. Be open to learning new things about yourself. Every woman should read!
"Like Honey on my Heart"
I was skeptical of yet another book written about and for women- but I felt a little desperate and the title and excerpt I listened to on Audible intrigued me. I heard so many comforting things from God's word, I cried through much of the middle portion of the book. I haven't been able to stop thinking about some of the truths that were shared and it has profoundly affected how I think of myself. I will reread several times over, and take notes next time. I am looking forward to real changes as I implement some of the authors' suggestions.
Truly insightful book.
"Not just for women."
Excellent book. This is not just for women! Men need this book to understand more the women in their lives. I will certainly give this another listen. This book shows that being a woman does not mean being a doormat or being weak. God created woman for a wonderful purpose and women are doing Him a dis-service by trying to be something they are not.
This book is so true of every woman. Me and my college roommate listened to this on a trip and loved every moment of it. John and his wife really get into the nitty gritty and put things in a way that it's easy to digest. I would highly recomend this to men and women alike!
"Guys should read it too"
Very good book for insiight to a woman's soul and to know what a husbands role and influence could and should be... Great book for knowing how extra-ordinary a woman's life can be under the kingship of Christ
"My girlfriend to be recommended it, so...."
As a man, at first the title didn't thrill me, but she was reading it and I wanted to know more about her so I purchased it. This book open my senses to a different spectrum of colors sort of speak. The narrative style was exquisite (yes big word for a guy like me). It really opened my eyes to see a different angle of women, a more intimate and intrinsic version on women. A version that we as men hardly see and that women almost never show. This book motivated me to see women in a higher, deeper and yet real way, and help me realize how little did I know about the true needs and identity of women from a godly perspective. In essence, this book readjusted my perspective, and definately approach to dealing with women in all aspects not just dating.
Yes, I am buying the book on dating.
I buy books in Audible because of lack of time to read, and also because I get sleepy when reading. The tone of voice and the emphasizes in the narrative makes the story alive for me, like going to the theater.
Many moments when I realize "boy, I am so wrong about this or that understanding".
Keep up the good work guys.
"Listen all the way thru"
I couldn't relate at first. I never had little girl dreams. But it helped me understand my role as a mother with encouragement.
A beautiful book, beautifully read! I'm so glad I got it! Audible has been a great choice for me and the books that I have been able to quote unquote read through them. Thank you so much!
"Terrible relationship advice"
I hated this book. It perpetuates so many damaging and ridiculous stereotypes about women.
I read the book because I have enjoyed a few of John Eldredge's other books, but this was vapid. I'm not suggesting that it won't resonate with some women, or that those women should feel bad. I'm just saying evangelical women already struggle enough with what it means to be a Christian woman, and this book will further enslave more than it sets free.
great book. Told me exactly what God thinks of me and what my purpose is.
