There is a path leading to authentic manhood, cut by men who have gone before us, sons following in the footsteps of their fathers, generation after generation. There are perils along the trail, even disasters?all the more reason to rely on the guidance of a Father who has gone before.

But in an age when true fathers are in short supply, how do you find the path to manhood? How do you steer clear of the dangers?

John Eldredge calls men back to a simple and reassuring truth: God is our Father. In life's trials and triumphs, God is initiating boys and men through the stages of manhood from Beloved Son to Cowboy to Warrior to Lover to King to Sage.

Fathered by God maps out the path of manhood?not more rules, not another list of principles, not formulas, but a sure path men have followed for centuries before us.

Find that path and become the man God sees in you.

    " This book gave me a feeling of positivity and power over my life that I haven't faced in a very long time. I would recommend it especially to men in their early twenties to put them on a path of open mindedness and searching for a better life through the life trials of other men who have gone before with good intentions. Very easy to listen to --and captivating stories throughout. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lei | 2/17/2014

    " Loving it. Love his insight and intuition. I am female but it helps to understand the meaning behind a man's adventure and ego. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 2/13/2014

    " This book has been amazing for me! About to begin a second time through with a study guide. It is helping me better understand some of the gaps from my childhood and how to relate to God as my heavenly father. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/10/2014

    " This is a great men's book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 1/24/2014

    " Great tool for creating a vocabulary for those strive to redefine their manhood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 1/16/2014

    " I really liked this book. It was written for men, but thought my husband would never read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chaffee | 1/14/2014

    " Really enjoyable. Some of his masculine depictions are a bit of a stretch, but I generally thought he was on target with the need for men to embrace Christian masculinity. The stages were particularly helpful in describing where a man might find himself along his journey with God. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 1/12/2014

    " A good solid read that occasionally suffers from overdevelopment of thought without forward movement to the next. Eldredge consistently writes in this manner so it should come as no surprise to any who have read his other works. The central idea and development of it is not only interesting but accurate (and will be confirmed by your own observations and experiences). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 1/1/2014

    " I love anything that helps me understand my house of men better. John Eldredge is an excellent writer and the master of the metaphore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Buford | 12/23/2013

    " Great book that every man should read, but it's also a great read for women to understand their husbands, sons, etc. Excellent stuff! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Madhur | 12/9/2013

    " This book is waste without the DVD. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 12/6/2013

    " written for men mostly, but it spoke to some of my own dad issues...makes me want to go fly fishing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lsia | 11/14/2013

    " Great for teen boys and men. Really good for moms also. It helped me understand my husband and boys better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arielcatheryne | 9/20/2013

    " John Eldredge delivers again. On many occasions, I felt like being a man would be really awesome and was sad in a way that I'm not... So I feel like I'll be reading Captivating next...for the 3rd time to think on what it means to be a woman again :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 6/13/2013

    " Eldredge was born to write this book. A follow-up to Wild At Heart. Every man should read at least on of these books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 5/17/2013

    " Ok for some, it's a pretty simple concept and an honestly decent resource (especially when a lot of guys nowadays are fatherless or at least have an absentee father). Eldredge could definitely use some wider insight into what it "means" to be a man, but he means well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa | 2/11/2013

    " EVERY father must read!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 12/25/2012

    " This book moved me as I read it before, during and after my mission trip to Alaska in 2008. I want to reread it soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christel | 12/15/2012

    " There's some interesting stuff from a biblical and psychological point of view... It's a little wordy though.... If it could be more to the point, it would have gotten 4 stars... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Timothy | 11/18/2012

    " Loved this book... along with Wild at Heart it really opened up my soul and helped me grow internally. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 doug | 8/3/2012

    " Sometimes it's hard for a son to see flaws in a father who seems perfect. Eldredge's book quickly shows that my love for my son, and my father's love for me, pails in comparison to God's love. This book is a great read for fathers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nate | 6/13/2012

    " Plenty of physical/spiritual examples of child/fatherhood. Still reading.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 carl | 3/10/2012

    " I liked the book. It takes one through the stages Eldredge see's as essential in becoming a son of God. One moves from boyhood to cowboy to warrior to lover to king and finally to sage. Wish I would have read it years ago but there is a time for everything. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg | 8/28/2011

    " Excellent. Eldredge really captures the journey in this book. I highly reccomend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jc | 7/20/2011

    " I really liked this follow up to Wild At Heart. He goes more in depth to talk about the stages of the journey of manhood. I would recommend this to any man who needs encouragement, to any father or mother of boys, and really, wives could get an understanding of their husbands from this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 4/21/2011

    " Love this book. I think I have bought at least 10 copies and I don't have one on the shelf at the moment. I think every guy should read it.
    This is a much better title for the book first published as "Way of the Wild heart". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chaffee | 2/12/2011
