Publisher's Summary

Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." That's the offer of Christianity, from God himself.Just look at what happens when people are touched by Jesus: the blind see, the lame walk, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life. In other words, to be touched by God is to be restored. To become all God meant you to be. That is what Christianity is supposed to do for you; make you whole, set you free, bring you fully alive.But Jesus also warned that the path to that life is narrow, and few people would find it. You'll notice few have. Waking the Dead will help you find that life, see the fierce battle over your heart, and embrace all that God has for you.There is so much more. Do you want it?


What the Critics Say

"The book...has an unguarded heart and an opinionated lucidity that may surprise readers. Eldredge is honest about the fact that life can be arduous, confusing and filled with despair, but he also affirms a deep Christian hope." (Publishers Weekly)

I've been Awakened!

I came across this book in passing and now realize it was meant to be. This is an excellent book and destroyed so many illusions for me that I'm starting to re-read it and have gotten the hardcover book to go through. I've already loaned the book to two others and mention it constantly. I was listening to the book during my daily commute and heard my inner "doubts" making comments about what I was hearing only to hear Mr. Eldredge voice those same doubts. This really made me realize the battle I was up against to become fully alive. God Loves Us All! You'll love the book and enjoy the stories, humor, and warmth that come from listening.

Glean truth from this one!

This is one of the best Christian books I have read in a while. Oddly enough, Sacred Romance also fits in this category. The reader does a great job also; Dolan also reads The Message.

I am still working through all the information contained in this book to see if I believe it all. It is, after all, a book written by a man. There is, however, truth to be gleaned from it. Definitely worth the money and time.

Read it and allow the Holy Spirit to do a deep work in you through it. I especially liked being reminded that we have an enemy set against us and the focus on redemptive community.
