Matar leones es una exploración entre padre e hijo, a las preguntas a las que los hombres jóvenes se enfrentan cuando se acercan a la edad adulta-preguntas que siguen acosando a muchos hombres aún en la mediana edad.
El título proviene de la tradición Masai en la que un joven finalmente sabe que se ha convertido en un hombre cuando ha matado a un león.
El estilo del libro es conversacional. Por lo general Sam toma la iniciativa al contar una historia de sus años en la universidad, graduación, cortejando a una mujer, de su casamiento, o de la búsqueda de una carrera, y John responde con el consejo de un padre y sus propias historias de "comienzo en la edad adulta."
Un diálogo entre un hombre joven que representa a los Millennials y un hombre maduro ofreciendo conocimiento y sabiduría sobre las questiones eternas de la jornada hacia la edad adulta.
Matar leones is an exploration, by father and son, of the questions young men face coming into manhood.
The title is drawn from the Masai tradition in which a young man finally knows he has become a man when he has killed a lion. The style of the book is conversational. Sam will typically take the lead by telling a story about his college years, graduation, pursuing a woman, getting married, or finding a career, and John will respond with counsel from a father and his own stories of "coming into manhood."
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.
