About "Wild At Heart (Abridged, 8cds)"
:Every man was once a boy. And every little has dreams, big dreams, dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty. But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man? Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are...bored. John Eldredge revises and updates his bestselling, renowned Christian classic, Wild at Heart, and in it invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man?s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer.
Meet the Author
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.

This book unbelievably unpacks the male mind. On multiple occasions this book had me speechless and really put a lot of feelings into words for me. I highly encourage every man out there to read this book. And I've heard that his wife's book Captivating is also amazing.
What makes a man? Eldredge, a mans man, unpacks this in a powerful way. He inspires every Christian man to find the spiritual warrior that exists within, and use it for the glory of God. Though not heavily theological, Eldredge is very inspirational, making his arguments from a wealth of experience and biblical knowledge. Every man should read this book.
This great CD set is easy listening on a very important topic. John Eldredge certainly has insight into what our culture has done to our men and boys, and he is passionate that men undertake the responsibility to be men as God defines 'manhood'. On the other side of the coin, he demonstrates that women need to allow and encourage men and boys to be exactly that. Society will not always agree. This CD set was really worth a listen, and is also a valuable tool for women who want to know how to encourage biblical manhood, be it in grown men, or as they raise little boys, and teens.
