Wild at Heart

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

I finally finished Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. The book was amazing. There's so much "meat" in those 220 pages, that I don't feel like I could ever give a thorough recap. So, what I am going to do is share some of my favorite pages, paragraphs, sentences, with a brief explanation of what I learned from it. Men and women alike should read this book.

Eldredge explains how deep down to the core of every man is the desire for a battle to fight. Whether it be for his woman, his family, freedom, personal rights, career, etc. And the enemy wants nothing more than for every man to fall, to lose the battle. And often times a real man, with godly principles, and a love for morality is looked upon by the world as odd, different, uncool.

"The world of posers is shaken by a real man. They'll do whatever it takes to get you back in line-threaten you, bribe you, seduce you, undermine you. They crucified Jesus. But it didn't work, did it? You must let your strength show up. Remember Christ in the Garden, the sheer force of his presence? Many of us have actually been afraid to let our strength show up because the world doesn't have a place for it. Fine. The world's screwed up. Let people feel the weight of who are you and let them deal with it."
