Book Overview

Every man was once a boy.  And every little has dreams, big dreams,  dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty.

But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man?  Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are . . . bored.

John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic, Wild at Heart, and in it invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man’s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer.  John Eldredge is the director of Ransomed Heart

  • Broad generalizations and fairy tail allegories

    Eldridge uses broad generalizations about men throughout his book. He claims that busy, successful, men are actually living in some fear. He writes from the land of make-believe with nearly every example and illustration in his book that are not directly taken from the bible coming from some work of fiction or theatrical drama, a fictional archetypal world to which he has devoted much of his life. Furthermore, his Biblical references take no consideration to context, audience relevance, or hermeneutics in general. Eldridge marginalizes other men’s actual successes, in the real world, in order to explain away his own personal fears and struggles and he uses anecdotal and no true Scotsman, amongst other, logical fallacies to make his arguments. “Every man feels that the world is asking him to be something he doubts very much he has it in him to be. This is universal; I have yet to meet an honest man who won’t admit it. Yes, there are many dense men who are wondering what I’m talking about; for them, life is fine and they are doing great. Just wait. Unless it’s really and truly a reflection of genuine strength, it’s a house of cards, and it’ll come down sooner or later. Anger will surface, or an addiction. Headaches, an ulcer, or maybe an affair.” “What about the achievers, the men running hard at life, pressing their way ahead? Most of it is fear-based as well.” To be fair, Eldridge does make several good points throughout the book pertaining to man’s place throughout history. (For example he raises an excellent thought question when he asks the reader what was Adam thinking and doing as he watched Eve take the fruit.) However, these few good points are far overshadowed by his failure to acknowledge that not all men have deep daddy issues.

    Never has a beating been so enlightening. It's been 20 years since I last got into a fistfight. This book hit harder that any man I ever faced. Eldridge pulled no punches while describing man's failures to live with the masculine heart GOD gave us. Many times, while reading this, I thought "How does John Eldridge know me an know what is going on in my mind and world?" Eldridge gets right to the point. While the Holy Bible is still the "Guidebook to Life", "Wild at Heart is perfect companion for men to read to understand our roles. I read the book while being the team leader for the Wild at Heart: Band of Brothers study series for my Men's Group. As the leader, I didn't have the opportunity to sit quietly and wait for conversation, I had to initiate it. Eldridge revealed to me that all men have the same basic struggles in life. He articulated these struggles in such a way that I was able to have a meaningful experience leading my Band of Brothers. I recommend this book for all men and women to get a better understanding of the roles GOD intended for us to have. What an incredible journey!

    I wanted to like this book but the one-dimensional nature of men that the author presents is limiting and insulting.
