Summary

There is a glory to life that most people - including believers - never see. In this insightful new book, John Eldredge presents the heart as central to life. Not only is the heart essential, the heart God has ransomed is also good. Building on these foundational truths, Eldredge shows readers why real Christianity is a process of restoration, where the broken parts of our hearts are mended and the captive parts are set free.

Waking the Dead leads listeners to understand how to live from the heart, care for their heart like the treasures of the kingdom, and give from fullness instead of emptiness. This message also shows how living from the heart can energize people to love God and others in a way they've never experienced, revealing to them life's purpose: fighting for the hearts of others.

it's a life changing book. I highly recommend it.

I love the way J.Eldredge provokes your thoughts in his writing so that anyone in whatever level of educational, cultural, or spiritual understanding can get this message. Since I've read his book, I've been following his journey videos. Watching was Absolutely life changing with the reality of their experiences with his team and how they compare behavior with our believes and actions. It definitely enlighten my own life and motivated me to make changes in my perspective of life as it currently stands and that of my future as God promises. it's been a life transformation through awareness of the battlefield I am sorrounded in, knowing my choices matter, seeking healing, using my God giving gifts, believing what God promises, and more than anything how much God cares for me.

Great examples

This book was read by the author and he was sincere with great illustrations of how to walk with God, what the key issues are when living the Christian life. If you are a Christian looking for a more intimate relationship with God- full of abundance then this will help. Not for new Christians.

Guard your heart

Great truths from God's word that we as Christian's desperately need to hear. An honest portrait of what the church should be but sadly isn't.
