Down through the ages saints and sages have warned us that in this great battle for the human heart, for our hearts, we face three enemies: the World, the Flesh, and the Devil. We seem somewhat acquainted with the last two, but we're not quite sure what to make of this first adversary. What is "the World," and why does scripture warn us in James 4:4 that to befriend it is, somehow, to disown God?
In this teaching John Eldredge exposes the power of our culture in shaping our way of life--particularly our pace of life. "The Spirit of the Age" is that pervasive force dominating western culture; so taken-for-granted, very few of us have stopped to wonder:
- "What is this doing to my heart?"
- "How does this impact my relationship with God?"
Jesus promises an easy burden and a light yoke. Only in Him and His way of life will we find rest for our souls. Come, listen, and find the secret of His life in The Spirit of The Age.

One of the best lectures I've heard in a long time! Liked it so much I sent a copy to a friend in Finland, one in Oregon, etc.! One of Eldredge's best lectures...so much so, that often when the Spirit of the Age starts to wear on me (I won't give it away & say what Eldredge believes to be the "Spirit of the Age" in our era), a quote from this lecture comes to mind & God sets me back on course again! A must-listen!
