Wild at Heart helped men get their hearts back. Waking the Dead will help us all find the life Christ promised. Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” That’s the offer of Christianity, from God himself. Just look at what happens when people are touched by Jesus—the blind see, the lame walk, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life. In other words, to be touched by God is to be restored. To become all God meant you to be. That is what Christianity is supposed to do for you—make you whole, set you free, bring you fully alive. But Jesus also warned that the path to that life is narrow, and few people would find it. You’ll notice few have. Waking the Dead will help you find that life, see the fierce battle over your heart, and embrace all that God has for you. There is so much more. Do you want it? Download and start listening now!

    Publishers Weekly

  • A Christian teacher with the Focus on the Family Institute and the author of Wild at Heart, Eldredge uses his broad knowledge of the Bible, mythology, and modern Christian writing to make his point: Conflicts and challenges in this world will put us to sleep if we don’t pay close attention to them.”

    " John Eldredge does an incredible job at communicating how we can reach that narrow road of life that Jesus tells us is available to everyone who wants it. If you think that there has to be more to life than what we experience day to day, you should definitely read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessie | 1/23/2014

    " About becoming alive in every sense of the word. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginger | 1/19/2014

    " John and his wife, Stasi wrote this book together and share some personal stories and spiritual insights from their ministry that made me say, "Right, that's what's REALLY been going on." This book re-kindled my desire, period. It also stirred in me to pray for my husband to really discover and live out of his heart. So many of us aren't and this book helps you understand why and wonder what the world would be like if more of us were living fully from fully alive hearts. Easy to read, though I found the prayers at the end too lengthy and impersonal for me to use on a daily basis, though that's exactly why they were included. Another enlightening book by the Eldredges. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabrina | 1/19/2014

    " Life changing!!!! Fave non-fiction book "

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

    " I listened to the book of cassette, I was very interesting and very non-denominational. I liked it that he included many well know saints and their writings and he spoke of the importance of doing spiritual warfare for your spouse and in many other areas of your life. I spoke of the need for men to become valiant princes again and women to be treated as princesses. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/4/2014

    " I have taught this book in a sunday school class and read it twice myself. It's a wonderfully great book about spiritual warfare and how it affects our lives on a daily basis. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendi Yarborough | 12/29/2013

    " Liked it when I read it, but sad to find out that John Eldredge is an open theist, which means he believes God doesn't have a clue what's going to happen in the end - complete heresy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/22/2013

    " A few concepts are great. But the book was somewhat repetitive in some spots. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 12/7/2013

    " This is a great book- a call to battle. read it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve Miyamoto | 10/27/2013

    " I want to give this more stars but it just didn't do it for me spiritually, in what seemed like obvious conclusions. That doesn't mean it couldn't help someone else though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathaniel | 10/13/2013

    " A powerful and motivating book for sure. I can't wait to read it again soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roni | 9/8/2013

    " Good challenging book. However, when I finished the book I can't really summarize the author's main points. As I read I was inspired, but then in the end I wasn't sure what John Eldredge really wanted his readers to do. Maybe his ideas are too idealistic. Don't really know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travis Gensler | 5/11/2013

    " This book takes literature from American history, and applies it to the story of our lives, in an eye opening way. John Eldredge truly understands the 'HEART' of life, and Love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/10/2013

    " One of my favorites. If I could get all Christians to read one book, it would be this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli | 5/3/2013

    " The first of John Eldredge's books I read. I like his concepts, but I think he is almost overly passionate for his own good. And not the good kind. Its passion without full knowledge. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 3/6/2013

    " I am barely into this but I have heard this is one great book. Chapter 11 is FANTASTIC. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rusty | 2/10/2013

    " Excellent book. As the title alludes to, this book is about becoming fully alive through a relationship with God and excites the reader to live with a fierceness and purpose in life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amee | 10/23/2012

    " Amazing book about living life with passion, purpose and wisdom. Excellent read! "

    " Read it twice in 11 days. Profound and potentially life-changing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Bragman | 10/8/2012

    " It is quite good so far..I like the way that he writes..I like books that are filled with personal experiences they make it so much easier to identify or just to simply try and understand their perspective on things:) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David Brewer | 9/3/2012

    " not very impressed. Writing style seemed fairly condescending, and he was essentially covering concepts discussed much better in Watchman Nee's "The Normal Christian Life." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 4/20/2012

    " I thought It was as good as his other book Wild at Heart "

    " The first of John Eldredge's books I read. I like his concepts, but I think he is almost overly passionate for his own good. And not the good kind. Its passion without full knowledge. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 2/12/2011

    " In Waking the Dead, Eldredge does a great job integrating all four “streams” of the believer’s life: discipleship, counseling, healing and warfare. For those familiar with Eldredge’s other books, this one will pleasantly surprise you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirstie | 1/5/2011

    " This is a truly amazing book!! I would encourage everyone to read it. It will give you a new perspective on your life, and may help you understand the battles that you've been struggling with.

    " Definitely a wake up call. A much needed one. Planning to paint Ephesians 5:14b to see each morning when I wake up.
    "Wake up, O sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 4/26/2010

    But I liked this book. "
