Helping men rediscover their masculine heart, this guide to understanding Christian manhood and Christian men offers a refreshing break from the chorus of voices urging men to be more responsible, reliable, dutiful… and dead. 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, now available in trade paper, 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.

    Second time reading. This time as a men's group study. The book does an excellent job of starting some great conversations about identity, dreams, hurts, fears, etc. The book explores how we have lost a sense of what it means to be a man. Eldredge’s premise is that men were made for danger and adventure to be a part of something larger than themselves; to take on something that tests their strength. He illustrates how modern society, and particularly the church, have tried to neuter men into something more tame. Read again before raising boys. Many excellent quotes.

    I really enjoyed this book and it challenged me as a husband and a father. One of the areas that impacted me most is the woundedness of the male and female and how much of a role the father plays in that. It's really caused me to pay attention to how I interact with my sons and my daughters as their father.
