Publishers Description

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.

Waking the Dead: The Glory of a Heart Fully Alive  Mar 24, 2007
This book was a gift to my husband and he loves it. He has read it once and has started over reading it again. I will read it when he is through. He never reads something more than once. I would highly recomend this book.
Waking the Dead!  Mar 15, 2007
With pen in hand and one eye on the tv and the other eye in the books, this is how I envisioned John Eldredge writing this volume. Nevertheless, it is a great effort. I especially like the treatment on our spiritual warfare. By the way, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy is one of my favorite of all times.
Great!!!  Feb 2, 2007
This book begins with a quote from Saint Irenaeus: "The Glory of God is Man Fully Alive." And that is really the key message of this book. God wants us to be fully alive - to live from our renewed hearts, to live from his plan for our lives. Eldredge always impresses me by the breadth and variety of sources he quotes to support his arguments and prove his points. He draws from the writings of the saints, church fathers, and from much material throughout Christian traditions. These varied sources help make the book appealing to a wider audience. Eldredge draws from such authors as: G.K. Chesterton, A.W. Tozer, William Gurnall, George Herbert, George MacDonald and many more.

The Chapters in this volume are:

Part 1: Seeing Our Way Clearly
1. Arm Yourself
2. The Eyes of the Heart
3. The Heart of all Things

Part 2: The Ransomed Heart
4. Ransomed And restored
5. The Glory Hidden in Your Heart

Part 3: The Four Streams
6. Walking with God
7. Receiving God's Intimate Counsel
8. Deep Restoration
9. Spiritual Warfare: Fighting for Your Heart
10. Setting Hearts Free: Integrating the Four Streams

Part 4: The Way of The Heart
11. Fellowships of the Heart
12. Like the Treasures of the Kingdom

I wore out a paperback edition of this book and now have the hard cover. I have read it at least 5 times and every time I read it I get more out of it.

Near the beginning, Eldredge, states: "There are few things more crucial to us than our own lives. And there are few things we are less clear about." p.1, then he goes on to say, "We're not fully convinced that God's offer to us is life. We have forgotten that the heart is central. And we had no idea that we were born into a world at war." p.2 The book only gets better from there.

Eldredge takes us on a tour through our life as it is, and as it could be with Jesus as both our Lord and Savior, with Jesus as our friend. The book will take you through your past to see your heart and how it got the way it is, and how to heal it and move forward and grow in Christ.

This book is an excellent read, and the Guidebook will only help you get more out of it. Eldredge declares: "Friends, we are now in the midst of an epic battle, a brutal and vicious war against an Enemy who knows his time is short. Open war is upon you, whether you would risk it or not." p.181. After reading this book, I spent months praying a new Jesus Prayer: `Lord Jesus Christ, bring me fully alive, Lord Jesus Christ, restore me to glory!' It has transformed how I see the world. There are still times when I do not catch on right away that something is spiritual warfare, but I do so quicker and pray more for my family, my friends and myself. This book really deepened and widened my prayer life.

Eldredge ends this book with a sample chapter of his earlier book Journey of Desire, and much like Celtic spirituality, his writings seem to be taking a cyclical nature. Wild at Heart shows us what a Man's heart can be, Waking the Dead shows us how to come fully alive and live in community, and leads back to Journey of Desire. Now that we have learned to live in this battle we need to know what our heart really desires.

Many people do not like Eldredge's writings; he is accused of open theology, and of not being Christian and many other things. Yet from my reading of his writings and knowing many of the sources he draws from, I would disagree, and say, give his words a try. You can find the gem in any book even if you don't agree with it all. And I say there are more gems in Eldredge's writings than chaff.
This book is for those who already know Christ  Feb 1, 2007

This book is for those who already know Christ and want to grow closer in their walk with Him. I believe so many people misinterpret John's message. He says, "The heart is good." What people must understand is that he is talking about a redeemed heart. People continue to sin, but sin is of the flesh. This is clearly backed up by the Bible. John clearly points out that we are at war, and we will always have to battle against sin. To be honest and truly follow our heart, our redeemed heart, is to follow Christ. John does not try to bring any glory to himself, but clearly gives it all to God.

This book has truly helped me in my life. It has helped me to improve my walk, which I of course still do in battle each and every day. It also must be said that no book written by a man should be anyone's complete guide to life and inspiration. The bible is still the ultimate and irrefutable guide.
A MUST READ!!!  Jan 9, 2007
This is an excellent book. I highly recommend to everyone - a MUST READ. Received in a timely manner. Pleased with purchase.
