- “The Way of the Wild Heart: A Map for the Masculine Journey” by John Eldredge.
Book description from the Amazon book link:
“Encourages men to allow God to help them complete their spiritual growth through the six stages of manhood, which will better equip them as fathers to initiate their sons into manhood.”
From Publishers Weekly
“According to Eldredge, whose book Wild at Heart has been a fixture on the CBA and PW’s monthly religion bestseller lists, Christian men have lost their way. How can the church empower its men to find that path of spiritual growth that will enable them to grow up into the image of God? Eldredge, founder and director of Ransomed Heart Ministries in Colorado Springs, Colo., attempts to answer this question in this helpful guide, a praxis-oriented follow-up volume to Wild at Heart. He begins with the observation that “God is a God of process,” then identifies six stages through which men pass in their life journeys: boyhood, cowboy, warrior, lover, king and sage. Eldredge describes typical behaviors that occur in each stage, and illustrates them with examples primarily from the Bible but also from secular biographies, popular films and legends. He views the transition from one stage to another as a time when “something in us needs to be dismantled and something needs to be healed,” a form of damage control that allows men to advance along Eldredge’s “map.” Eldredge insists that the church has not served its male population well and calls for greater insight into the masculine journey.
