Item Description...
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not An Owner's Manual (whew)  Mar 26, 2007
If you are a woman, Wild at Heart will give you a peek under the hood of the men in your life. If you are a man, here's your chance to think about things that you would normally probably only ever talk about with a counselor or your best friend.

How often have you stepped back and thought of what it means to simply be a man? The focus in most books is on roles: our roles as a spouse, in our career, as a parent. Most men are bored, he says. Most women are tired.

According to Eldredge, men have three basic desires: adventure, a battle to fight, a beauty to rescue. I was all set to dislike this book and assumed it would be full of generalizations and bromides. Sure, there are generalizations, but the conversation has to begin somewhere. Again and again he emphasizes that he's not promoting some He Man image and again and again he says that God is the source of true masculinity.

A large chunk of the book talks about the wounds men have. He says he has never met a man that does not have a wound. He says that most of the healing that has occurred in his own life is the result of spending time with his best friend. He talks about how his three boys often seek "snuggle time" with him.

Eldredge has counseled many men, has had more deep conversations with men than I could ever hope to have in several lifetimes, and for this reason alone his insights are worth considering. He gives many brief glimpses into the lives of some of these men. He also touches on problem areas in his own marriage but avoids sordid tell-all details in his stories. Unlike most marriage books, he doesn't make an idol of marriage and emphasizes that men must offer strength to their wives, not draw strength from them. Utimately they must draw their strength from God.

Fathers take a hit in this book. Fathers are the one that deliver their son's wound and fathers are usually to blame for the wound in their daughters, he says. Obviously a man's desires come with responsibility, and the potential to cause damage.

This book isn't an owner's manual. It is refreshingly free from To Do lists and formulas. By simply acknowledging that these basic desires exist, and that somewhere under the hood is a wound that needs to be healed, you can look at the men in your life and let the wheels start turning and slowly begin to fill in the blanks on your own.
A Must-Have  Mar 18, 2007
This is easily one of the best books I own - I go back to it time and time again even though I've probably read it through five times. Any Christian woman with a father, brother, or significant other should own this book. You will understand men in a totally different way, and it will improve your relationships with them. Also, checkout its counterpart, Captivating.
Be Apart of the Journey!  Mar 15, 2007
John has a way with the pen. His quotes on classical writings and gems from the movies continue to amaze me. Yes, we will part way with some theology. But all in all, it is a good buy.
Simple, True and very Politically Incorrect  Mar 5, 2007
This book seemed to me to be more secular than Christian. The author strains to make biblical connections with his seemingly secular counseling advice. That said, it is an insightful book and a good read.

The book states what may be self evident to some. The Creator made men to be just that, men. They have adventure designed into their hearts. Men are just designed differently than women. Dare to be what God created you to be, not what society expects you to be. Why does society expect a man to "mature" into a social and emotional eunuch after marraige? I especially recommend the book to those men feeling bored or even whipped by society and perhaps by their wives.
This is a MUST READ  Feb 11, 2007
John takes you on a trip of discovery that is very unique. This is a MUST READ for any person trying to deepend his/her relationship with God. I also recommend you get the Field Manual and work through it simultaneously.
