Book Review: Wild at Heart by John Eldredge

I thought this book would be just for men.  I was wrong! I feel this book should be part of a required reading list for women who are considering marriage.  I couldn’t understand why men didn’t seem to respond to church like women do.  After reading Wild at Heart I realized that men are forced to conform to an idea of worship that could very well be different to what I would enjoy.   I couldn’t understand my son’s desire to march in church, clap his hands too loud and jump up and down.  Apparently, he feels like he is worshiping God when he puts his whole body into it!  That’s the point.  Most Christian men are bored.  John Eldredge wants men to understand that they are supposed to be masculine.  They have a masculine heart, God gave them the desire to fight a battle and to find a beauty to rescue all the while searching for an adventure to live. I recommend this book for men to learn to be the Masculine Christian male that God intended them to be.  I also recommend this book for woman to learn that men are created different then woman spiritually, we need to acknowledge that in the church.  We need to bring Masculinity back into the church.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
