Overview

The Way of the Wild Heart: A Map for the Masculine Journey by John Eldredge

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.

I'm almost done with this one and John has said some really awesome things which have healed my heart.  As a father of a 9-year old boy, it has also got me thinking about how to grow together in the grace of God.  I have also been able to process some things which happened in my childhood which have formed me and been able to understand the why and the how.  I would recommend.

"The Way of the Wild Heart" has helped me develop a much more intimate relationship with God as my Father. John Eldredge writes in a way that captures and keeps my attention. The experiences he shares touch my heart. He has helped me work through some parental relationship-issues I've had from long ago. I started by reading "Wild at Heart," and could feel God tugging at my heart many times as I read. I couldn't wait to read his follow-up book, "The Way of the Wild Heart." I have not been disappointed. I am now sharing these books with my son, so together we can lead my grandsons into a "wild at heart" relationship with God. Excellent book!

This is the first Eldredge book that I have read and it was inspiring... I use it as a discussion book with a friend of mine... As a father of a young boy I was enlightened with many ideas of adventure, to help raise my son to be a man of honor, respect, and courage... It also made me reflect on where I, as a man, was in my own journey... Overall Great Book...

Like his first book, this book touched me. He is an excellent writer, surely blessed by the Lord. I look forward to reading his other works.
