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.

I've read every one of John Eldredge's books and this one is by far one of my favorites. It is honest and cuts deep to the root of what every individual thinks and feels but never acts on. I highly recommend this book to everyone, but don't just take my word for it. See for yourself!
Life changing! I strongly recommend this book.
I have recommended this book to nearly everyone I know. John Eldredge has a unique and fresh perspective that has affected me deeply. I am so thankful for this Creator-inspired writing and thankful for the unabridged version that allows me to hear everything while I'm on the road. I would also recomment "The Sacred Romance, "Wild at Heart" and after you've read those, read "The Way of the Wild Heart" - Rod
