Publisher's Summary

The Challenge Before You Is a Bold One: To Accept the Wild, Daring Adventure of Becoming a Man
We want to be self-sufficient. Find our own direction as we pursue our dreams. Know it all and never ask for help. Isn't this how most guys approach manhood? On our own, pretending we are doing better than we really are? But sooner or later the thrill of independence gets lost in the fog of isolation. It's time to take the pressure off. We were never meant to figure life out on our own. This book was born out of a series of weekly phone calls between Sam Eldredge, a young writer in his twenties, and his dad, bestselling author John Eldredge. Join the conversation as a father and son talk about pursuing beauty, dealing with money, getting married, chasing dreams, knowing something real with God, and how to find a life you can call your own.
Killing Lions is more than fatherly advice. It is an invitation into a journey: either to be the son who receives fathering or the father who learns what must be spoken. Most important, these conversations speak to a searching generation: "You are not alone. Its not all up to you. You are going to find your way."

A conversation with dad

This book is a great listen on the struggles of young men in todays’s culture with some fatherly advice. I think in some ways the narration between a son and his father makes it a better book for listening then reading. Recommend for dads with teenagers and young men in early to mid 20’s.

Perfect for Dads of Young Men

Would you consider the audio edition of Killing Lions to be better than the print version?

Today's generation too often prefers the simplicity and flexibility of listening/watching over reading. Having this in audio form not only brought the story to life through the narration directly by John and his son Sam, but perfectly fit my desire to be able to share this with my young adult sons who have left home and off to college. Their feedback has been better than expected, felt it was very relevant to issues they were dealing with. Highly recommend to other dads who desire to stay engaged in their sons lives.
