There is a glory to life that most people—including believers—never see.

In this insightful new book, John Eldredge presents the heart as central to life. Not only is the heart essential; the heart God has ransomed is also good. Building on these foundational truths, Eldredge shows readers why real Christianity is a process of restoration, where the broken parts of our hearts are mended and the captive parts are set free. Waking the Dead leads listeners to understand how to live from the heart, care for their heart like the treasures of the kingdom, and give from fullness instead of emptiness. This message also shows how living from the heart can energize people to love God and others in a way they’ve never experienced, revealing to them life’s purpose: fighting for the hearts of others.

    " I am currently reading this as a devotional much like I did with John's book on Walking with God. Oh to live with a heart fully alive, the way God created us. This is a great book to help heal soul hurts as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli | 2/24/2011

    " 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. "

    " 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. This book shows that the heart is central to following God and being in an intimate relationship with Him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/2/2011

    " 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. "

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

    " 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. "

    " My all-time favorite of the Eldredge books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Timilyn | 7/11/2010

    " 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

    " "David Copperfield" makes a more convincing claim that a loving heart is the truest wisdom.
    But I liked this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 2/15/2010

    " I'm rereading this right now. I think it's one of the books I will read again and again all my life, whenever I need reminding that there are good things in me to be shared. "
