Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brent Curtis and John Eldredge identify that silent yearning that many Christians feel--despite the fullness of their life--as a hunger for romance with God, a need to launch out on adventure by drawing closer to the heart of God.

Synopsis:

The God who saves is also a God who woos His own to a relationship primarily of the heart. As we draw closer to Him, we must choose to let go of other "less-wild lovers," such as perfectionistic driveness and self-indulgence. Eldredge and Curtis identify the lies offered by "false loves" and instruct us on the journey back to the Lover of our souls.In carefully crafted words and images, the authors entice the reader to his or her own journey of the heart, promising, "It is possible to recover the lost life of our heart and with it the intimacy, beauty, and adventure of life with God."

Synopsis:

This book invites us to see what God is doing behind the scenes of our lives to woo us to himself and is a must-read for all those who long to know God more passionately and personally.

This is the kind of book I go back and read at least once a year, to keep me in mind of its wonderful truths.

How different life on this old planet looks when viewed from the perspective of being romanced by our Creator!

John Eldredge takes us on an adventure, the recapturing of our childhood dreams and desires, showing us how God wants to use these to bring joy into our lives. The arrows which early in life pierced our hearts (and which we've tried to forget) have caused us to settle for less than God's wild love for us--but we can rediscover the deliciousness of what it means to be adored and romanced beyond our wildest dreams.
