Sometimes it seems we just can't get what we want. Circumstances thwart our best-laid plans. We struggle to live a heartfelt life. Worst of all, says author John Eldredge, the modern church mistakenly teaches its people to kill desire (calling it sin) and replace it with duty or obligation (calling it sanctification). As a result, at best Christians tend to live safe, boring lives of resignation. At worst, their desire eventually breaks out in destructive ways such as substance abuse, affairs, and pornography addictions. But people were attracted to Jesus during His earthly ministry because He addressed their desires. In this compelling book, Eldredge invites readers to abandon resignation and addiction, acknowledge the significance of desire, and embark on an adventure he calls �our heart's most important journey.�
