Every man was once a boy, and every little boy has dreams—big dreams: dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of performing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: dreams of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty. But what happens to those dreams when we grow up?

Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself, “What is a Christian man?” Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are … bored. In Wild at Heart, John Eldredge invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. He also invites women to discover the secret of a man’s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The best, most insightful book I have read in at least the last five years.”

    Chuck Swindoll

  • “Eldredge’s recurring message is simple: When you give yourself to Christ, God makes your heart good. Your heart matters to God. Liberate your heart and its deepest desires, and your love for God will explode.”

    Christianity Today

  • “Although the book succeeds best in its slant toward a male audience, it also strives to help women understand the implications of authentic masculinity in their relationships with men. Eldredge frames the book around his outdoor experiences and appealing anecdotes about his family, sprinkling the text with touches of humor and overlying everything with heartfelt passion.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 4/9/2017

    " My husband requested this book in prison. Hearing how much it meant to him I ordered the audio version. What a great book. Helping me understand the Wild nature in man's heart. The Book hit on so many things that seem to be an issue today with our new generation. Taking the headship away from a man. Love the book. I recommend it to any couple, especially the man willing to read it. I plan to get the follow up book written by his wife. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marsha | 2/18/2014

    " Insightful into the inner needs of men, a little deep in places - a book to read again since I read it over a long span of time and might have lost some of the meaning "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 graham | 2/13/2014

    " This is how much I liked this book: after the fist couple pages I threw it across the room. Wild at heart, my ass. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ritchie Pruehs | 2/12/2014

    " This is the best book I've read to uncover what God wired in a man's heart. John's basic concepts on the three desires of a man's heart (for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and for a beauty to rescue) and on the haunting question every man asks are extremely insightful. Of all John's books, this is by far the most well-written. It just flows! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Smn1244 | 2/1/2014

    " This is a great book. I would reccomend it to all men, and to women who are trying to understand their men. I have read it twice and may read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Jackson | 1/26/2014

    " Excellent book. Gave really good perspective on the proper role of the Christian man and the work he needs to do to make right his soul. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chad | 1/6/2014

    " This book was given to me almost 10 years ago from my sister, but only now am I finally reading it. Was recommended to me by a friend and minister whom I was seeking godly counsel from. After seeing the cover again and again throughout the years, God is so ministering to me through it and I wish I would've read it long time ago. Speaks loudly to my heart about some longstanding inner struggles I still deal with, like "Do I have what it takes?" Through this book God is doing wonders in my soul, for which I am eternally grateful to Him and his servant who wrote it for wounded men. Half way through the book, I have more hope now than ever before that I will live what God created me to be. Free indeed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua Mckeown | 1/3/2014

    " Every man should read this book. Especially dads. "

    " A book all men should read!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dan | 11/23/2013

    " Reveals the fundamental flaw of Evangelical Protestantism: a reliance upon emotion as the foundation of faith. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seth | 11/21/2013

    " Best book I've ever read in terms of growing spiritually aside from the Bible "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonita | 11/16/2013

    " What can I say? I feel he puts guys into a lump category. Not my favorite type of reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 renie | 11/11/2013

    " I read this book in preparation for my marriage. I didn't have brothers so knowing what makes guys tick was a new thing to me! It's a great book and I think every bride should read it BEFORE they get married. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Benny Fernandez | 10/24/2013

    " Great book with truths about society and manhood from a Christian point of view. I recommend this to any real men "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan Eckman | 9/13/2013

    " It's a spiritual book about relationships and taking time out of every week to find yourself lost in the woods. Wild at Heart challenged me a lot more in the dating area of life than I expected. The premise of his argument is simple, but effective. I'd recommend this book to just about anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edward | 4/8/2013

    " Eldrege truly understands the heart and soul of a man. A great read for any man trying to sort out why he feels and thinks the way he does. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles Fields | 3/16/2013

    " This is a must read for every man on the planet! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen L. | 3/16/2013

    " I snatched this while my husband was busy and actually found it really rang out truth. Most men are wild at heart. They do want to rescue women and do something grand. Men, read this to not feel alone, and women, read this to understand men more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank Peters | 10/30/2012

    " The main point of the book was highly worthwhile. On the other hand there was too much stereotypes and excessive generalizations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 7/27/2012

    " I listened to this one on CD. It was very interesting and thought provoking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 7/6/2012

    " This book actually written more for a man than a woman, but women can glean from it too. It's given me some food for thought and questions to ask my husband. I'm just hoping he doesn't want to climb Mount Everest after he (hopefully) reads this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 brynnelda dahling | 6/17/2012

    " Very insightful. I learned things I've yet to cover in small groups. There were times I felt it was dragging on, but overall a definitely worthy read. I recommend it to everyone. Viva growth! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott French | 10/4/2011

    " Every Man should read; particularly if you have sons "

    " mist stevige onderbouwing van zijn theorien over man zijn en wil en risico zoeken, maar is wel inspirerend en de moeite van het lezen waard "

    " If you have a son or a husband, you MUST read this book! "

    " Okay, as much as I don't think of myself as a manly man, this still resonated with me. It definitely shows some traps that men can get into and has some good insights. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 3/28/2011

    " Excellent book. Gave really good perspective on the proper role of the Christian man and the work he needs to do to make right his soul. Highly recommended. "
