God designed men to be dangerous, says John Eldredge. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men abandon those dreams and desires.

    I've got to take a contrarian view on this book -- I really didn't like it. Perhaps it was because I read through it with a group of guys from my church and we watched the DVD that accompanied the group study material, but Eldridge's "manliness" came across as little more than the fake stuff Billy Crystal and his buddies tried for in "City Slickers".

    His constant harping on "wounds" was rather grating, IMHO, as well. But it usually seems as though I'm the only one who took this level of aggravation from the book. Perhaps I need a re-read.

    Maybe you aren't in the same place as a lot of men. There's no way that a book can directly apply to everyone, so maybe the content didn't resonate with you simply because you are at a different place in your life.
