Every man was once a boy. And every little boy has dreams, big dreams: dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty. But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man? Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are . . . bored. In Wild at Heart, John Eldredge invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man’s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer.
- True theology
Wild at heart is a fantastic book that really speaks to the core of a man’s heart. Those who shout out about “poor theology” are typically from a school of thought that tends to leave out the heart altogether. Especially God’s heart. God’s heart is deeply passionate and cares deeply about the hearts of his men. He isn’t emotionally blank. He longs for true connection and intimate interaction with his sons. And the Bible itself has painted a picture of this passionate heart of God all throughout. So if you haven’t read or heard this book, I encourage you to try. And learn afresh how God has created the masculine heart after his own. Not limp-wristed and cerebral, but wild, passionate and deeply connected. And as Eldridge mentions in this book, a man who recovers his heart benefits all those around him: his woman, his children, his friends, and his world. But more importantly, a heart alive opens the door for real intimacy with God.
- Poor theology
Not all ideas are bad, but very poor theology. Could be damaging to a young believer. I would recommend reading The Masculine Mandate: God’s Calling to Men, for a more truthful, theologically-sound book.
