Item Description...
I can fix it. I don't need directions. I can figure this out on my own. These thoughts that erupt from a man's bravado, from his deep urge to be real man. Yet underneath this, there is a louder voice countering, You can't. You're not capable. You're weak. Many men-possibly all men-face two looming questions at some point in their life. What does it mean to be a man, and am I one? Way of the Wild Heart reaches out to "unfinished men" trying to understand and live their role as men and fathers. Exploring six biblically based stages, John Eldredge initiates men into a new understanding and ownership of their manhood and equips them to effectively lead their sons to manhood.

Heartful Writing for Men and Parents of Boys  Mar 29, 2007
John Eldredge writes from the depths of his rich spiritual well to speak to the heart of men. Eldredge conveys meaningful insights about the stages he perceives men going through in healthy life transitions. He labels the stages as: "Beloved Son," "Cowboy," "Warrior," "King," and "Sage." These stages seemed right on for men. He writes about each one and follows the theme of the stages throughout the book.

Eldredge's writing appears more mature and refined with each new book he writes, as does his precision in targeting the experiences of men. This book offers myriad insights into the soul of men.

Eldredge continues his fascination with certain movies and books that speak to him about men and relates many tales of adventure in the great outdoors. In both cases, he succeeds in emphasizing the points he is trying to make using these tools and tales.

Some readers may weary of the emphasis on "manly" things like climbing mountains, guns, hunting, fishing, and blowing stuff up. I think Eldredge uses these to make good points but also has come to an understanding that not all men share these passions.

God has blessed Eldredge with a quiver of sons, and he shares his experiences with fatherhood. The lessons learned from him in this book make it valuable reading for parents of boys. I recommend it to mothers of boys because it will share with you ways to help your son be all the things God has designed him to become.

Wild at Heart II  Mar 27, 2007
Having read the first half of the book, I was starting to think it was more of an in-depth work book of 'Wild at Heart'. But then I started learning new things that made the whole book worth while reading.

It only takes one paragraph from a book like this to help a man bring parts of his life into perspective that he has been struggling with. 'Wild at Heart' did this for me and now 'The Way of the Wild Heart' has also enlightened me on certain subjects that I was not getting answers on from elsewhere.

Thank-you John Eldredge for stepping out and publishing a very personal book like this. I know your books have touched many a man's heart, and have also shown them what it takes to raise their son's to become men of God.

I would urge you to overlook the negative reviews of this book. I really don't think the negative reviewers understand what the author is trying to get across. This book is not the definite guide book to being a man, nor does the author want you to feel that way. Even though he heavily explores an important aspect of being a man, he does not leave out the other ones. In fact he does a good job of covering all the different aspects that the negative reviewers are saying he rejects!

The readers are not only shown how to implement what is shown in this book into their lives, but into their sons lives.

I would encourage all men, religious or non-religious, fathers or not, to read this book.
Great followed up to Wild at Heart  Mar 8, 2007
My husband loves this book and shares some of the insights with me almost daily. Not everything may be relevant to every man, but every man will get something relevant out of the book. John Eldredge desires to help men know themselves better and live life the way they were designed to live it. He is a Christian, but any man will benefit from reading "Wild at Heart" and "The Way of the Wild Heart".
A must read  Feb 15, 2007
I think that the reviewers who give John's books poor ratings read it from the mind of logic or analysis, but forget that it truly IS from the heart that we come to know and experience God...for that IS where He abides in the heart of a Christian individual.

Nobody has "made" John the expert, and nobody has said he was...infact, if one reads into John's book, they will see that he does not proclaim himslef to be, but simply...he writes on what God has given him to experience and what he has observed. Life is the same way. Albeit, if one is truly experience a life totally and completely surrendered to Christ, then they have received God's Spirit--who gives us understanding, direction, and wisdom.

Thank you John, for allowing God to use you in your writing. Praise Yeshua HaMeshiac for His wonder love, passion, and even beauty that can be found in the heart of the redeemed man. Despite the critics, they truly have their own agendas or biases...because even they are diametrically oppossed to allowing God/Holy Spirit to examine and take them deep into their hearts.

I recommend this book to all!
Who died and named this guy the spokesperson for masculinity?  Jan 26, 2007
John Eldredge means well. He writes of a generation of men who were fathered poorly, and how asking Jesus into our lives to fill that gap and continue to father us is the best gift we can give ourselves. On that count he's absolutely spot-on accurate, and everything he delivers in support of that is a well-intended gift from the author's heart. But he makes a big mistake in taking on the role of spokesperson for God's intended definition of masculinity. In fact, he's radically off base with it. Ironically, the very generation that fathered us so poorly, with their racial prejudice and their emotional retardation and their addictions (they all wanted to be Sinatra) and their handed-down "manly" hobbies... these are the things Eldredge ascribes to for himself, and then assigns them as God's intention for men. Ridiculous. Jesus wouldn't fish, he'd cradle the poor creatures in his hands and heal them from the hook your Dad tore out of their mouth. He surely wouldn't hunt to make himself feel masculine, he'd buy his meat at Safeway. And to be sure, he wouldn't be a gun hobbyist. On page 67, we are told a story of a man who longed for the toy gun of his childhood, and how receiving a REAL one later in life was a gift from God: "Gary will often go up to the shooting range all by himself, just with his rifle, to be with God." This is the most ridiculous sentence in the history of spiritual writing. Guns are WEAPONS. They are instruments of destruction, and any argument to the contrary is an obvious justification by someone who needs a prop to their self-image, cleary a Napoleon complex. Short of advocating giving your son a box of Cuban cigars, the author signs up for all of his father's stereotypical badges of masculinity, assigning reliousity to fishing (newsflash, John: fishing is no more spiritual than pumping iron at the gym), hunting, camping, even fast vehicles -- from page 74: "I needed to smell gasoline, and go fast. Essentials for the masculine soul." Really? Says who? Not Jesus, that's for sure. Just Eldredge. I know a lot of men who feel three sets of bench presses twice a week is just as spiritual. Obviously, this guy has masculinity issues, and he heals them with his father's outdated masculine badges. Too bad, because as I said, his intention is noble. But he's a throwback, today's real man knows that masculinity has nothing at all to do with beer and football and, God help us, fishing. It has to do with courage, with being there for your family, especially (as it pertains to his book) for your son. To love him well and openly, to model manhood in a healthy way that allows him to pursue his own passions without the stigma of a father's stereotyping, and the strength to guide and discipline when things are tough. That's a real man. It has nothing at all do with with "the wild." That's what Jesus would do, that's the man that He was. This is dangerous stuff for men who are searching for answers. Hey, just grab a fly rod and some junk food and take your son to the lake, say a few prayers while you're there. Take a hike and find God. It's that simple, right? Eldredge would have us believe so.
