Full Product Description
It’s time to take the pressure off. We were never meant to figure life out on our own.
This book was born out of a series of weekly phone calls between Sam Eldredge, a young writer in his twenties, and his dad, best-selling author John Eldredge. Join the conversation as a father and son talk about pursuing beauty, dealing with money, getting married, chasing dreams, knowing something real with God, and how to find a life you can call your own.
Killing Lions is more than fatherly advice. It is an invitation into a journey: either to be the son who receives fathering or the father who learns what must be spoken. Most important, these conversations speak to a searching generation: “You are not alone. Its not all up to you. You are going to find your way.”
Killing Lions by John Eldredge; Samuel Eldredge was published by Thomas Nelson in September 2014 and is our 61166th best seller. The ISBN for Killing Lions is 9781400206704.

Killing LionsJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
This is a paternal conversation, captured in the answering of questions and principles about love, money, work, God, and life. There is the raw acknowledgement that there's not instant formation in life, just by osmosis. Life is not neat or easy.
Killing Lions is an exploration, by father and son, of the questions young men face coming into manhood-questions that continue to haunt many otherwise, if not addressed. The concept is that there are a few lions to kill before he will know he has become a man and that God can entrust him with dreams coming true. John Eldredge engages with his son, Sam, for a give-and-take examination of what it takes to become a man, using "the journey is the destination, warrior and conqueror" language. There is insight, content, prayerfulness and adventure throughout this short book.
The areas of the book that covered self-control and doubt were strongest, with the collision of worlds and the winning character of God in us, at the heart of it all. Its got a fatherly weave and tone in the wisdom, substance and detail of what's offered. Its wide ranging and insightful with lots of the content in this rites of passage style work. However, it is a book clearly written by Americans, to those living in a north-American context, and whether that will fully translate to the european experience is a question that remains to be seen.
