RECOMMENDED READING 

Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul - John Eldredge
Hardcover 224 pages (April 1, 2001)
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 0785268839

Book Description
God designed men to be dangerous, says John Eldredge. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men abandon those dreams and desires—aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a “nice guy.” It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death. In this provocative book, Eldredge gives women a look inside the true heart of a man and gives men permission to be what God designed them to be—dangerous, passionate, alive, and free.

Reviews

This is a fantastic book. It deals with the universal feelings in men of deep anger, inadequacy and often lust. Men want to be men but seem to be born with a limp - never quite being able to be manly from the core of their beings. The result is a pretence: Macho man, effeminacy or as most wives can relate to an irresponsible inertia. The book leads men to be honest about this paralysis and directs the way to freedom - to be wild at heart as they were created to be.
Not just for men, it deals with women’s brokenness and will help them to understand their men's.

This is an amazing book. Showing men that they can be who they know they really are. Deals with letting men be men, so that women can be women. May sound very sexist, but is infact highly liberating. This book is very freeing for men that read it, and for women that read it wow, you'll know what a man is & should be. Would highly recommend it. Buy one for yourself, read it & then pass it on! It is a book to share.
Will liberate Men everywhere!! Revolutionary.

OTHER GREAT READS

 

EVERY MAN's BATTLE: Winning the War on Sexual Temptation One Victory at a Time
Stephen Arterburn, Fred Stoeker, Mike Yorkey
Paperback 256 pages (Aug,2000)
Publisher: Waterbrook Press
ISBN: 1578563682

If you can read this book as a Christian man and think that you don't need to put into practice what it preaches, then you're either lying or there's something disturbingly wrong with you. The subjects that Stoeker and Arterburn tackle in this book have been swept under the carpet too many times. Their candid and practical approach to the problem of sexual integrity is utterly refreshing and at the same time devestatingly effective. If you want to be set free from sexual sin ('...there should not be even a HINT of sexual immorality among you...') this book is essential reading.

Stephen Arterburn, Fred Stoeker, Mike Yorkey
Paperback 240 pages (Mar,2002)

I am 17 and this book is amazing. it answers every question you would want to know that are the subjects that no one talks about, they answer the questions you would be too embarrassed to ask anyone. If you don't find this book excellent you gotta be crazy. I totally recommend this book, BUY IT!!!
