Item Description...
In Desire, formerly titled The Journey of Desire, John Eldredge writes of the journey people must take to find the life they prize. And the guide that has been given to all is the desire set deep within, the desire often overlooked or mistaken for something else or even ignored.

"Contrary to what you may have heard in church, desire is the key to the Christian life," says John Eldredge. "When we lose desire, we lose passion for God-and everything else. This book will unlock your God-given passions and desires so that you can find the life God meant you to live.

In this groundbreaking book, Eldredge invites readers to acknowledge the significance of desire, abandon resignation, and embark on an adventure he calls "our heart's most important journey."

Publishers Description

Can we find a life filled with passion, without being overwhelmed by it?

In "Desire," John Eldredge writes, "There is a secret set within each of our hearts. It is the desire for life as it was meant to be." Yet how do we uncover our desires and learn to decipher them? As Eldredge says, "We all share the same dilemma--we long for life and we're not sure where to find it. We wonder if we ever do find it, can we make it last? . . . We must journey to find the life we prize. And the guide we have been given is the desire set deep within, the desire we often overlook or mistake for something else or even choose to ignore. The greatest human tragedy is to give up the search."

Many good people have been told that the path to a holy life requires us to kill our hearts' desires. And call it sanctification.

But in this re-release of one of Eldredge's most inspiring works, we discover that God is the author of our deepest desires. He has given us desire, and he loves to fulfill our hearts' desires. For as the Psalms declare, "Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart" (37:4).

God is calling to you through the desires of your heart.

How you respond will set the course for the rest of your life.

" "Desire"] is a profound and winsome call to walk into the heart of God and hear Him sing to your soul about His love. In a world of frenzy and clamor about desire, we often miss the ache that lifts our face to look into His eyes. This book will stir your heart and invite you to know the one desire that captures all passion for His purpose. Drink in this work, and your life will not be the same."

Dan Allender, Author, "The Healing Path"

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book!  Mar 27, 2010
This is an absolutely fantastic book everyone should read. Highly recommended. I just can't say enough good things about it.
A must read!  Nov 24, 2009
John Eldredge is a down to earth writer when it comes to FAITH. If you haven't read any of his so. He asks the questions that many have asked....but John provides wisdom in his answers.
"Desire" is the 3rd book of John's I have read and digested. Two other of his works I can whole heartedly suggest are "Waking the Dead" and "Wild at Heart". These are works that all men should read!!
Good Title By John Eldredge  Sep 16, 2009
"Desire" by John Eldredge is a good title for the person who struggles with desires and wonders what to do with them. Of course, I am not talking about illicit desires like committing a crime or the such. Instead, how about the new career area, hobby, personal goal, or some other pursuit that either has been dormant for several years or has become a recent interest? Eldredge's thesis appears to be that we should not let our duties or life obligations keep us from fulfilling those desires.

Among the points covered include:

1. We should come to God more often with our desires.
2. If we do not have deep personal desires, someone else will rule us with theirs.
3. Be careful of the idols that can distract us from who we truly are.
4. We need to give our desire for life over to God.
5. We are happiest when we are expressing the gifts that are truly us.
6. Do nothing unless it reflects your true desire.
7. The cross proves God's love for us.
8. All of our desires will find their place when we give God His place in our lives.
9. God grants us much of our heart's desire as we delight in Him (Psalm 37: 4-5).
10. To hear God, reduce the constant noise in your life.

Like other Eldredge titles, the reader is challenged to think about his or her life and see where God fits in. Actually, He must be the center!

There is one comment that I did have a problem with. Around page 169 Eldredge admits he stopped attending church for a year because he was tired of "the performance of showing up every Sunday morning with my happy face on". While I certainly sympathize with him (I actually do not always "feel like" attending church every Sunday; there have been times when I have gone through a struggle, shared it with fellow church members, and felt abandoned by their apparent lack of concern, etc.), I would certainly not give up going for a whole year. If the church you are going to is not giving you the support you need during your time of struggle, then go find another church! Church ought to be a place of safety and protection. Whenever we start to isolate ourself from our local church, we are setting ourselves up for potential problems.

Still, "Desire" is a good read and I recommend it. Enjoy.
Typical Eldredge - makes you think  May 18, 2009
If you are familiar with John Eldredge's work, this book certainly has his signature style. It makes you think and develop your own conclusions. If you want a book with all the answers, look elsewhere. If you are looking for an instruction manual of how to turn your passion into riches, this is not for you. But, if you want (or need) to be prompted to get your mind around how God can use you the way he created step back and see the bigger picture so as to understand how you fit in God's world, then read this book.
Fascinating  Feb 16, 2009
A fasinating look at the life God desires for us, despite the restrictions many Christians believe are the path. I now understand more fully the life Christ offers us. This is mandatory reading. Utilizing the workbook makes the journey very personal and eye opening. Thought provoking and life changing.
