In The Sacred Romance, authors Brent Curtis and John Eldredge inspire readers to enter into the greatest romance of all time--one with God. Many Christians have tried to satiate the hunger of their hearts by substituting the love of God with things from this world. Since "our heart is the key to the Christian life," this often leads to spiritual stagnation and unhappiness, while God, the "Great Lover," attempts to lavishly adorn us with His perfect love. Doubting God's goodness coupled with fear of trusting Him blind the believer and prevent him from being wooed by God into a rich relationship. Life can soon become empty, cold, and worthless. Through personal narrative, Curtis and Eldredge take turns convincing the reader not only that God is good, but that recklessly abandoning oneself to Him results in a fulfilling life of abundance and awe. In this portrayal of God's character, the obvious error lies in believing that He could need anything from His creatures, or that He could be "hurt" by their unrequited love. On the whole, however, this is a call to a more passionate relationship with the lover of our souls. A follow-up book, The Journey of Desire, was written by John Eldredge after Brent Curtis's tragic death. --Jill Heatherly

Soldier Of The Cross
This is not just a book on spiritual warfare. It's about not losing heart. It's about showing the gospel is intended to free is to love God. And that love is the Sacred Romance that we all truly desire.
I cannot say that I truly understand God's love completely, because there is no way that any human could fully comprehend it. However, after reading this book, I can say that I think I understand God's love a little more.
This book is an excellent read, and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to have a closer relationship with God.
It brought me up short when I was in severe depression
I had been complaining to my older son and he recommended this book.
The book is not for the faint or lighthearted. Be prepared to meet the Person Who can and will change you, given your permission.
Remember the command: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and strength.”
This book will help you do just that.
