Publisher's Summary

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.

Nothing Less Than Life-Changing

As a Christian who was brought up with the dismal view of Heaven as sitting around singing "Amazing Grace" ad nauseum for eternity, the book helped reshape my view of living a life for Christ and connected me with my hopes, dreams and desires in an entirely new manner. For everyone who has walked away from the Church and its duties and obligations, this book will help you reshape your theology into one that celebrates the life God sent His Son to die for. You're not the only one who has had questions that nobody else talks about; Elderidge brings them out into the open and offers scriptural solutions.

I did cry in some areas that really "hit home" with stuff I have dealt with in life.
