Item description for Desire: The Journey We Must Take to Find the Life God Offers by John Eldredge & Kelly Ryan Dolan...
Overview Best-selling author, Eldredge, invites listeners to rediscover God-given desire and to search again for the life they once dreamed of.
Publishers Description Sometimes it seems we just can't get what we want. Circumstances thwart our best-laid plans. We struggle to live a heartfelt life. Worst of all, says Eldredge, the modern church mistakenly teaches its people to kill desire (calling it sin) and replace it with duty or obligation (calling it sanctification). As a result, at best Christians tend to live safe, boring lives of resignation. At worst, their desire eventually breaks out in destructive ways such as substance abuse, affairs, and pornography addictions. In The Journey of Desire, Eldredge invites readers to rediscover God-given desire and to search again for the life they once dreamed of.

Desire is right on Feb 6, 2010
John's book Waking the Dead is my favorite. In fact it was so well liked that my Pastor spent five weeks doing a series based on it. He went on to encourage the whole church purchase a copy of it and follow along. After enjoying Waking the Dead so much I started purchasing other books by him. I would have to say this one is next on my list. In Waking the Dead John resurrects the whole idea of living from the heart and not the head. Desire goes on to expand on one way God guides us, through desire. I have loaned my copies of both these books to friends and in each case they thanked me and went on to purchase copies for themselves. John covers a topic overlook by many, keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it come the issues of life.
