Item description for The Journey of Desire: Searching for the Life We've Only Dreamed of by John Eldredge...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Journey of Desire: Searching for the Life We've Only Dreamed of?

A Nice Surprise!  Jan 16, 2008
Honestly, the title didn't do much for me but as I mentioned in my review for Sacred Romance, this book just opens you up with new language to engage your heart with. I have read many Christian books but there is something about the way this author addresses the heart. It is SOOOOO crucial and SOOOOOO necessary! I wish you success!!!!
Recommended with caveats  Jun 19, 2007
HIGHLY recommended. Other books of Eldredge may be more popular and interest generating. However, this is his foundational book. This book provides brilliant insight into our desires.

The caveat is that one must complete the reading of this book by reading a couple of other authors.
First, John Piper's books such as Desiring God or The Pleasures of God.
Second, Lou Giglio's book - The Air I Breathe.

These two authors complement Eldredge and corrects Eldredge's more 'man-centric' focus.
Discover Hope--the energizer of faith and love  Jun 4, 2007
I cannot state strongly enough how enthusiastically I recommend this book. I truly believe this message is a gift from the Lord, delivered through Eldredge. There is a reason that faith, hope, and love are the three cardinal virtues; yet Christians often seem to be tremendously lacking in hope. And for our faith and love to be what they should, they need the empowerment of hope.

The basic message of the book is this: our hearts demand Paradise; we simply cannot arrange for it in this life; it is indeed coming (for those who will receive it from the Lord).

"Journey of Desire" is a wonderful guide to growing in hope, to understanding why we're deficient in it, to illuminating the threats to understanding life. This book is a compelling guide and invitation to the life that's worth living. Absolutely, positively "must" reading. Indeed, more than simply reading this book, it deserves to be studied, meditated on, digested. The message delivered in this book is one of the most important I've ever received.

p.s. I've also read "Wild at Heart", "Epic", "Waking the Dead", and "Sacred Romance". They are all excellent, all important. I believe the Lord has much to say to us through Eldredge.
Great read!  Apr 16, 2007
Books are highly subjective, but I have always liked John's books. Be aware of all the pompous critics out there who claim that John is 'aloof' or not quite 'in touch'. I know that God has used his writing in wonderful ways for myself, and MANY that I know. And that should be testament to itself. Always check everything that you read against or compared to the Scriptures, but read his book for yourself before deciding to take the 'advice' of the raters!
Join the Journey!  Mar 16, 2007
I love this book! John Eldredge takes the reader on an adventure. What a book!
