John Eldredge offers an inside look into the conversations between father and son, answering questions and sharing lessons about love, money, work, God, and life.

Who came up with the notion that the day you graduate from college you are a fully developed adult stepping into a wonderful and fully developed life? It's madness. Life just doesn't follow a clean, clear linear path. More important, people don't. Killing Lions is an exploration, by father and son, of the questions young men face coming into manhood-questions that continue to haunt many men well into middle age.

Whatever else might be going on in his life, every young man is in the workshop of God, in the training of becoming a man. This is his Great Mission, the deeper stream, the far more important work than career. He has a few lions to kill before he will know he has become a man and that God can entrust him with dreams coming true.

In the summer of 2012, Samuel Eldredge was one year out of college and about to ask a girl to marry him. He turned to his dad for counsel, and what unfolded over several months was a series of conversations about love, money, work, God, and life that became the passion for Killing Lions. In the middle of those conversations, John asked Sam, "How many of your peers have anyone they can ask these questions?" Sam answered, "I don't know any. No one."

Killing Lions is the dialog between a young man trying to find his life's direction and an older man offering wisdom and insight on the timeless issues of the journey toward adulthood. Every man, young or not, can benefit from the life lessons John Eldredge has passed on to his son.

Samuel Eldredge

Samuel Eldredge began his writing career in second grade with a memorable essay on penguins. He graduated with a bachelors in English and is currently developing an online journal for men. In his spare time he enjoys films by Hayao Miyazaki. When he goes out of doors he loves to ride motorcycles, sail, and adventure with his wife, Susie. They currently live in Minneapolis.

John Eldredge

John Eldredge is an author, a counsellor, and teacher. He is also president of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God, recover their own heart in his love, and learn to live in his Kingdom. He is also the author of numerous books, including Epic, Waking the Dead, Wild at Heart, and Desire, and co-author of Captivating and The Sacred Romance.

John grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles (which he hated), and spent his boyhood summers on his grandfather's cattle ranch in eastern Oregon (which he loved). John met his wife Stasi in high school (in drama class). But their romance did not begin until they each came to faith in Christ, after high school. John earned his undergraduate degree in Theatre, and directed a theatre company in Los Angeles for several years before moving to Colorado with Focus on the Family, where he taught at the Focus on the Family Institute.

John earned his master's degree in Counselling from Colorado Christian University, under the direction of Larry Crabb and Dan Allender. He worked as a counselor in private practice before launching Ransomed Heart in 2000. John and Stasi live in Colorado Springs with their three sons.

While all of this is factually true, it somehow misses describing an actual person. He loves the outdoors passionately, especially living in the Rocky Mountains, and all beauty, Shakespeare, bow hunting, a good cigar, anything having to do with adventure, poetry, March Madness, working in the shop, fly fishing, classic rock, the Tetons, fish tacos, George MacDonald, green tea, buffalo steaks, dark chocolate, wild and open places, horses running, and too much more to name. He also uses the expression "far out" way too much.
