Helping men rediscover their masculine heart, this guide to understanding Christian manhood and Christian men offers a refreshing break from the chorus of voices urging men to be more responsible, reliable, dutiful and dead. God designed men to be dangerous, says John Eldredge. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men abandon those dreams and desires-aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a "nice guy." It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death. Eldredge gives us a look inside the true heart of a man and gives men permission to be what God designed them to be-dangerous, passionate, alive, and free.

I've written a few book reviews for books which have helped me to grow intellectually and others which have helped me grow spiritually, but this is the book which has helped me grow emotionally. It helped me understand my past and put me on the path to healing. Eldredge helped me to understand my heart, that part of me which is the most foreign and frightening, but that part which is essential to becoming the man which Jesus wants me to become. If you have not done so already, pick up this book today and then order a copy for your father, your son, your husband or your brother. This is the kind of book which changes lives.

Thanks Arsin. I was wondering what to give my brothers and brothers-in-law for Father's Day.
