The Way Of The Wild Heart
Full Product Description
We live in a time where most men (and boys) are essentially fatherless. Whatever their circumstance, they have no man actually taking them through the many adventures, trials, battles and experiences they need to shape a masculine heart within them. They find themselves on their own to figure life out, and that is a lonely place to be.
In this book, Eldredge reveals how God comes to a man and takes him on the masculine journey, how nearly all the events of a man's life can come together to provide the initiation he never received.
The Way Of The Wild Heart by John Eldredge was published by Thomas Nelson in December 2006 and is our 15451st best seller. The ISBN for The Way Of The Wild Heart is 9780785288688.

The Way of the Wild HeartIan Gibson, via The Good Book Stall
A surprising book for the modern age for it challenges the notion that men grow up with little connection with a father figure and that position needs to be corrected. Children grow up without the guidance and love shared with a father figure, that boys grow into men without the help and companionship to guide them through the hazards they experience and in the end how important that companionship is. The author states that we are not meant to figure life out on our own, that the masculine journey is too important to experience on our own. I suppose many fathers, like me, tend to allow their sons to grow to maturity expecting them to blossom in a similar way that they did; probably expecting mothers to care and tend for them whilst we “worked”. This book explains the need for that journey to be alongside a “father”, to provide the initiation into manhood in such a way as to affect the future. The author states that the fears, the anger, the boredom, the addictions of life may all come out of the fatherless place in the core of the being, so a father is important on the way. For those who seek a father then God can provide that place – “God wants to Father us”, the author states. He than goes on to explain how God can come to a man and live the journey, whatever the age, whatever the status -surprising but quite challenging as well.
