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.

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.

God to Manhood

This places you closer to God while upholding the necessity to keep strength of manhood. Also shows that a clear path is not always the right path. Walk in the woods with God to be led to a greater spiritual victory. Great narration and deep messages.

John I loved reading this book. We read it for a Men of Honor teaching for our Church. It really changed my life. Going to read it many more times. Looking forward to reading more of your books. Thanks and God Bless you and your Family.
