Item description for The Sacred Romance: Drawing Closer to the Heart of God by John Eldredge, Brent Curtis & Kelly Ryan Dolan...
Overview Publisher Marketing: This life-changing book has guided hundreds of thousands of readers from a busyness-based religion to a deeply felt relationship with the God who woos us. 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."
Publishers Description In the heart of every person lies an inconsolable longing. Men often know it as the hunger for adventure. Women tend to feel it as a thirst for intimacy. This longing is the secret of our lives. It tells us who we are, what our life was meant to be. If you have ever felt those deep yearnings, we have some really good news: this is what the Gospel truly offers. Life is more than chores and Christianity is more than duty. It is a Sacred Romance -a great love story set in the midst of a life and death battle.

More About John Eldredge, Brent Curtis & Kelly Ryan Dolan
John Eldredge is an author (you probably figured that out), a counselor, and teacher. He has written or co-written numerous books including, Wild At Heart an impacting book releasing men to be men in the Kingdom. He is also president of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God, recover their own heart in his love, and learn to live in his Kingdom. John grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles (which he hated), and spent his boyhood summers on his grandfather’s cattle ranch in eastern Oregon (which he loved). John met Stasi in high school drama class. But their romance did not begin until they each came to faith in Christ, after high school. John earned his undergraduate degree in Theater at Cal Poly, and directed a theater company in Los Angeles for several years before moving to Colorado with Focus on the Family, where he taught at the Focus on the Family Institute.
John earned his master’s degree in Counseling from Colorado Christian University, under the direction of Larry Crabb and Dan Allender. He worked as a counselor in private practice before launching Ransomed Heart in 2000. John and Stasi have authored together the book, Love and War: Finding the Marriage You've Dreamed Of, the day to day living that every marriage goes through.
John and Stasi live in Colorado Springs with their three sons Samuel, Blaine and Luke, their golden retriever-Oban, and two horses-Whistle and Kokolo. While all of this is factually true, it somehow misses describing an actual person. He loves the outdoors passionately, and all beauty, Shakespeare, bow hunting, a good cigar, anything having to do with adventure, poetry, March Madness, working in the shop, fly fishing, classic rock, the Tetons, fish tacos, George MacDonald, green tea, buffalo steaks, dark chocolate, wild and open places, horses running, and too much more to name. He also uses the expression “far out” way too much.

Reading this helped me grow deeper in my faith Jan 9, 2007
Sacred Romance is an incredible book. Losing Brent Curtis is a loss to God's kingdom. His book brought me closer to God and helped me to understand the love affair that God wants to have with ME. I can never thank Brent & John enough for their stepping out and writing about the God of the Universe who loves us so much that He sacrificed everything for the Sacred Romance.
