From childhood on, something or Someone has called us on a journey of the heart. It is a journey full of intimacy, adventure, and beauty - but like any fairy tale it is also fraught with more than a little danger. To ignore this whispered call is to become one of the living dead who carry on their lives divorced from their most intimate selves, their hearts. The Sacred Romance calls to us in our fondest memories, our greatest loves, our noblest achievements, even our deepest hurts. The reward is worth the risk. God Himself longs for us, if we are but willing... Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alli Hauswald | 2/19/2014

    " I have learned so far about the lost heart and yearning to turn back to the heart of Jesus. Reading about the sting of the arrows piercing the heart was a hard chapter to read because of some of the big stressful events that have happened to me and things/events that have torn me down. But I know that God brings us those times of misery to learn and run back to him knowing we can't live our life on our own. We need him! "

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

    " I am still in the process of studying this book but so far it is all you would expect of John Eldridge and more. A really thought provoking heart searching book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 2/11/2014

    " EXCELLENT content, prose style very difficult to slog through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan | 2/7/2014

    " One of those books that knocks you up side the head and you keep coming back for more. Five stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy-Karen | 2/5/2014

    " From Kyle upon leaving for South Africa... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kipahni | 2/5/2014

    " I guess I didn't really care for it because I have read so much of the same carpe diem, you don't know the big picture kind of spiritual books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 2/5/2014

    " Loved, loved, loved this book. The subject and the beauty in which it is written was nothing short of stirring poetic music to my heart. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 1/27/2014

    " This book has a beautiful message. The personal stories really added depth and interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Strumberger | 1/19/2014

    " This book made me understand the relationship that God desires to have with me, and the relationship that I can have with God. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/10/2014

    " I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. Eldredge does such a good job of illustrating theological and spiritual concepts with emotional impact "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David Warner | 12/9/2013

    " This book is OK. It is co-written by John Eldredge--the author of "Wild at Heart" and "Captivating." And I think his later books, like Wild at Heart, are better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin Clayton | 12/1/2013

    " This was a life-changing book for me and started a long, and often difficult process toward healing some very deep, traumatic wounds from my childhood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 11/24/2013

    " A great look at the heart of God and our own hearts and desires. A very honest look a life through the Christian worldview. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lauren Jespersen | 10/26/2013

    " i read this a long time ago, i honestly don't remember much about it, but i remember not liking it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kel | 10/19/2013

    " A must read I think. I also did the accompanying workbook and met weekly with a friend as we worked through it. We still talk about what we learned about ourselves, each other, and God as a result of reading this book together. One of my favorite chapters was on heaven. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill Robinson | 10/10/2013

    " My Kindle broke in the middle of reading this and I'm not really motivated to find where I was on my husband's Kindle. I was looking forward to the concept of falling more in love with Jesus. But this really did not inspire me the way I expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elena | 10/9/2013

    " the right thing at the right time.....how great that God keeps on reminding us how greatly we are loved... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan | 9/7/2013

    " Good idea, poor execution. Difficult writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mel | 3/28/2013

    " I love John Elderedge - he's always enjoyable to read, and this book poses the question, "What if marriage isn't set up to make me happy, but to make me holy?" It's a game-changer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 2/7/2013

    " This book was a bit cumbersome to get through at times, but definitely spoke some truth into my heart. The last chapter presented a beautiful, inspiring look into eternity and what heaven may be like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Letitia | 5/31/2012

    " A little touchy-feeling and at times flowery to the point of idiocy, but the sentiments truly are novel and inspirational. When used as a devotional, devoid of literary critique, it is a very moving and convicting piece. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 11/12/2011

    " Love this read, Eldridge draws lines from what we know in our heart and scripture to our real lives. He reminds us that God is our ultimate desire, and ordering our lives with Him as a priority makes lots of other distractions fade away and simplifies our life! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorraine | 10/30/2011

    " Not as good as some of the other books he's written, but have bought it to re read. Maybe the second time around I will find it more value. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 7/21/2011

    " I know it was written before Journey of Desire, but it's a really good follow-up book. It has continued to tweak me on some things I hadn't processed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 6/28/2011

    " The best book I know of about our relationship with God! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 2/26/2011

    " This book is OK. It is co-written by John Eldredge--the author of "Wild at Heart" and "Captivating." And I think his later books, like Wild at Heart, are better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 2/8/2011

    " They beautifully weave a description of the wonder of Christianity and how we lose that magic and how to reclaim it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 1/29/2011

    " should read this over and over again "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christie | 7/28/2010

    " So good!! Read this before Chris and I got married! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 7/26/2010

    " a breath of fresh air. Makes a personal relationship with God seem not so vague or wierd and much more tangible.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erika | 5/7/2010

    " There was so much in this little book -- so many rich insights and reminders in the journey of faith and life -- yet the writing kept holding me back. Or, was it the subject matter? Too much to absorb that I took my time? "
