“… so I offer this book… as a safari of the heart to recover a life of freedom, passion, and adventure … it will help woman to understand their men and help them live the life they both want”.

wild at heart by john eldredge

“Eve was created within the lush beauty of Eden’s garden. But Adam, if you’ll remember, was created OUTSIDE the Garden, in the wilderness… And ever since then boys have never been at home indoors, and men have had an insatiable longing to explore. We long to RETURN, its when most men come alive…When a man comes to the mountains, he comes HOME”.

“The core of a man’s heart is undomesticated, and that is good”.

“ADVENTURE, with all it’s requisite danger and wilderness, is a deeply spiritual longing written into the soul of man. The masculine heart needs a place where nothing is prefabricated, modular, non fat,zip lock, franchised, on-line, microwavable. Where there are no deadlines, cell phones, or committee meetings. Where THERE IS ROOM FOR THE SOUL. Where, finally, the geography around us corresponds to the geography of our heart.”

”If a man is ever to find out who he I and what he’s here for, he has got to take that journey for himself. He has got to get his heart back”.

“A man needs to feel the rhythms of the earth; he needs to have in hand something real – the tiller of a boat, a set of reins, the roughness of rope, or simply a shovel.”

“The recipe for fun is pretty simple raising boys: add to any activity an element of danger, stir in a little exploration, ad a dash of destruction, and you’ve got yourself a winner.”

“… three desires… is a desperate desire for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue…”

”So many men make the mistake of thinking that the woman IS the adventure. But that is where the relationship immediately goes downhill. A woman doesn't want to be the adventure; she wants to be caught up into something greater then herself.”

“The world kills a woman’s heart when it tells her to be tough, efficient, and independent.”

“It is a book about the recovery and release of a man’s heart, his passions, his true nature, which he has been given by God.”

“For if you are going to know who you truly are as a man, if you are going to find a life worth living, if you are going to love a woman deeply and NOT PASS ON your confusion to your children, you simply must get your heart back.You must head up into the high country of the soul , into wild and uncharted regions and track down that elusive prey. ”
