Publisher's Summary

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.

Women need to listen to this too.

This could’ve saved my marriage had I found this earlier. I was dead inside because I supressed my true desires and fell into being the nice guy, the pushover , the wimp and ultimately felt unloved by the woman I loved because of it. She in turn felt that I wasn’t fighting for her and we both died inside feeling unloved by the other. This makes so much sense. I am striving to face my fears head on and become truly alive now. A great listen and benefit for both men and women!

Top Ten reads of all time for me.

A strong read for all men! Especially those married with children who may have become somewhat passive by the routine/busyness of life. Also for the young men preparing to lead their family. Great read and vey refreshing to my spirit.I love his take on Christian men & the attack on masculinity that's taking place while also calling out false (macho-man/egotistical/prideful) masculinity. Top Ten Reads of all time for me.

Resonating Deep within the Masculine Soul

Listening to Wild At Heart was like taking a giant swig from a canteen on a mountaintop - a much needed relief, very deeply satisfying.

Life changing book

This book has changed the way I have looked at what it means to be a Godly man. I now have a better understanding on my future and what I want to be as a man. God used this book to change me in many ways. Thank you John Eledredge!

Inspiring. For dreamers.

I like John’s passion to get men to do what they want to do that truly makes them come alive, but not everyone can fulfill their dreams no matter how hard they try or how much faith they have.

I’ve read this book several times and have listened to it twice, now. Each time, I’ve walked away with a stirring in my heart, something to create and to be passionate about. I like what this man says and I love the ideals, but some of his thoughts don’t belong in the world.

In retrospect, I guess that’s what keeps me coming back to the book. I want to feel there’s hope for men.

This book will help you come alive

This book exceeded all expectations. I read it hoping to understand my husband better, what I came away with was a better understanding of myself, and how I might better serve Him.
