This is a book about how a boy?and a man?becomes a man.

It's a guide to the process of masculine initiation, that ancient path every boy and man must take if they would become the man they long to be. The path whereby they come to know they are a man, and are able to live and love from a deep, centered strength.

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. Their fears, anger, boredom, and their many addictions all come out of this fatherless place within them, a fundamental uncertainty in the core of their being.

But there is a way.

"We aren't meant to figure life out on our own," says John Eldredge. "God wants to father us." In The Way of the Wild Heart, 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 togther to provide the initiation he never received. And how parents can offer that initiation to their sons. Whatever your age may be, your Father is ready to take up your journey. For you are his son.

    No matter how well your armor seems the devil can find a way through. No matter the path it is fraught with traps to sideline you and take you out of the game. John writes from a heart that is grounded on the spiritual realm. He shows how weak our guard can be. If we men fail to lead our families through we have failed. John gives creedence to GOD's Word in our lives. His cross is where our path starts and ends.The Way of the Wild Heart deserves a second and third read. - HP
