Item description for Captivating: unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul by John Eldredge & Stasi Eldredge...

Bestselling author John Eldredge and his wife and co-author, Stasi, unveil the beauty and mystery of the feminine soul by showing readers the three core desires of every woman's heart. Every little girl has dreams of being swept up into a great adventure, of being the beautiful princess. Sadly, when women grow up, they are often swept up into a life filled merely with duty and demands. Many Christian women are tired, struggling under the weight of the pressure to be a "good servant," a nurturing caregiver, or a capable home manager. What Wild at Heart did for men, Captivating can do for women. This groundbreaking book shows readers the glorious design of women before the fall, describes how the feminine heart can be restored, and casts a vision for the power, freedom, and beauty of a woman released to be all she was meant to be. By revealing the core desires every woman shares---to be romanced, to play an irreplaceable role in a grand adventure, and to unveil beauty--- John and Stasi Eldredge invite women to recover their feminine hearts, created in the image of an intimate and passionate God. Further, they encourage men to discover the secret of a woman's soul and to delight in the beauty and strength women were created to offer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Captivating: unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul?

More than a book, it helps with my quiet time  Dec 9, 2008
every girl, woman and teenager will relate to this book. You uncover so much of yourself and your potential, while discovering your purpose in life, as a female.
 
Amazing book  Nov 23, 2008
This book hits at the heart of a woman. A must read for all women!
 
My life is changing as a result of this book  Oct 30, 2008
I have been through a lot in my 40 years of life. I always thought that I had to be strong and just carry my sadness with me like a backpack I would pick up every day--it just became a part of my routine to deal with the overwhelming pain and sadness.

A friend of mine suggested I read this book. I went into it skeptically because I have read so many Christian-based books that encouraged me, but never helped me to get "over that hump" of going back to dwelling on past hurts.

I am now getting this book for a few of my girlfriends for Christmas. I believe it will help them as it has helped me.

I read another review on this site that said the book did nothing for her. Well, to be honest, I believe that God reveals things to you when the timing is right. I have read books that I felt did nothing for me and then an event will take place in my life --and lo and behold the book I felt was useless did in fact prepare me for the event. So I don't limit God's teachings or Word. As the Bible states His Word does not go out void.

I suggest reading a chapter or two and really reflecting on what it's said, how it relates to you and then prayerfully asking for God to help you get a deeper understanding from the book.

I am still in the process of reading the book, but each chapter has brought me to a higher level. I no longer think the negative thoughts that once plagued my heart and soul. I no longer wake with dread of "what's going to happen to make me sad today." I am renewed, I am cleansed and I am free of picking up that backpack of sadness.
 
Very confused ideation  Oct 9, 2008
/

CAPTIVATING: UNVEILING THE MYSTERY OF A WOMAN's SOUL serves as evidence of the epidemic of confused ideation which unfortunately, finds its way into print.

The perennial faults, common to New Age literature, [The CARTESIAN AFFLICTION & The ERROR OF ECCLECTICISM, are made evident in this book, by authors claiming vaguely, to be "Christian".

Even the title reference, concerning "A WOMAN's SOUL" more than suggests that the SOUL is itself SEXED, or qualified by a gender, and this would specifically make the book unChristian in its theological foundations. In Christian theology, there is no such thing as a SOUL being feminized or masculinized.

One can only wonder what system of Checks & Balances such author use, or failed to use, as they compare their proposals to valid propositions.

Philosophically, the core difficulty concerns the issue of human IDENTITY. The authors fail to identify SOUL as the human identity, and opt instead for a modernist interpretation of being founded upon SEXUAL IDENTITY. Therefore, if I am born male, my identity is that of a male, rather than that of a SOUL.

This fault established, the foundation for nearly everything the authors write is not only weak in its rationality, it is contradictory to even the most simple and basic of Christian doctrine, regardless of whether the reader is either Catholic, Protestant, or any other sect.

______________________________________________________

-FALSE CLAIMS-

On page 6, the Eldredges assert without ecclesiastical authority, that there is a BIBLICAL PROOF that Proverbs 31 contains an "infamous icon". Not only is there no BIBLICAL PROOF, the Bible itself refers to the woman of the proverb as the "Worthy Woman" so there is in fact, NO BIBLICAL PROOF for what the Eldredges claim.

There are numerous other falsifications of Christian doctrine.

One of these which seems to escape many readers is on page 25, where after citing the 2nd Chapter of Genesis account of the creation of Woman, the Eldredges claim:

"She is the crescendo, the final, astonishing work of God. Woman."----p. 25, CAPTIVATING, by John & Stasi Eldredge

Not only is it absurd and irrational to claim that woman is the "final ...work of God" it is tantamount to denying all the "work of God" which follows the book of Second Genesis, and for which the Bible is written. No scripture is given to support the proposition that this is God's "final...work" but it is tantamount to a denial of Jesus Christ, and all of history which follows the Second Genesis.

If the "final ...work of God" is the creation of Woman, who was it who sent a Son to be sacrificed for the sins of man on Calvary?


The book seems committed to answer common Mass Minded dilemmas, which appear in the earthly, rather than the spiritual woman. CAPTIVATING is consistent with New Age publications, including in a later chapter with address of fantastical and worldly propositions for "Warrior Princesses". This is itself strange in consideration of Christian doctrine. It only addresses woman as a maiden, or unmarried. It fails to address the status of the married woman.

__________________________________________________


At the beginning of each chapter, the authors offer several quotes from literary figures of the past, and other personages, as though to indicate that the twisted associations of the author's ratiocinative processes are supported as standard philosphical underpinnings throughout the realm of literature. However, many of such quotes are taken entirely out of context, and others are not even remotely related to the Feminist ideological proposals of the authors.

For example, Chapter 3 begins with a quote from William Shakespeare:

"O pernicious woman."

That's all. It isn't even a complete sentence; but by the confused ideation of the authorship, somewhow the line of the character in a Shakespearean play, is somehow to be construed to imply that Shakespeare himself held to some philosophy that all womanhood is PERNICIOUS. Anyone familiar with the Catholicity of the Bard would see that utter absurdity of such a proposal.

_________________________________________________


Sometimes, it is not pleasant to indicate the massive faults of authors, because a reviewer would prefer to be kind; but if one neglects to write the truth and consider reviwing on a factual basis, all manner of nonsensical proposition find their way into print.

That such literature has little at all to do with Jesus Christ, or a dynamic and vital spiritual life, is obvious.

Is is most certainly New Age writing and that it is philosphically flawed is readily apparent from even the very first line of the book:

FIRST LINE: "Now we are on holy ground."--INTRODUCTION

How do the authors determine what "holy ground" is?

No indication is given.

How do the authors show that "we are on holy ground."?

No indication is given

Where precisely is the "holy ground"?

No indication is given.

The reader must assume that ground is "holy" merely because the authors are upon it, and for no other reason.

_____________________________________________________

--OTHER FALSE CLAIMS--


The Eldredges claim that Eve is an INCARNATION of God.

"Eve was given to the world as the incarnation of a beautiful, captivating God--" p. 44, mid-page, CAPTIVATING by John & Stasi Eldredge

Not only is it false doctrine to claim that Eve was "the incarnation of a beautiful, captivating God--";

The statement is irrational on two different levels.

(1) It is irrational because the Genesis account holds Eve to be the FIRST woman, the very first to exist. If that is so, then there exist no Women to INCARNATE at all at the time God CREATED woman. This falsification is also connected to the Eldredges proposition that SOULS have a GENDER IDENTITY.

(2) It is irrational because the Genesis account does NOT tell us that Eve was either a "God" or the "incarnation" of a "God".

_____________________________________________________

One of these which seems to escape many readers is on page 25, where after citing the 2nd Chapter of Genesis account of the creation of Woman, the Eldredges claim:

"She is the crescendo, the final, astonishing work of God. Woman."----p. 25, CAPTIVATING, by John & Stasi Eldredge

If the "final ...work of God" is the creation of Woman, who was it who sent a Son to be sacrificed for the sins of man on Calvary?


In short, the Eldredges just Make-Things-Up.
