If you're the type that feels it's your god-given duty to scour the texts of books to find all "the errors" and expose "heresy", I'm sure you can (or already have) gleefully torn away at John's message. But, honestly, I ask, "Really? Why not just become an IRS agent instead?" And, I say, "Get a life." Sincerely, I say, go get a life that worth's living! Stop hiding behind your computer or your pulpit or your religious duties or your secret addictions and find the wide open spaces of life!
The message of WAH, both in the book and in the retreats Ransomed Heart put on based on this message was an invitation for me to experience God in ways I never thought possible and to experience life in its fullness in ways I never thought possible. And not only was it an invitation, it was permission to finally live my life. Maybe that doesn't make sense to many, but it was a game-changer for me. After returning from a WAH retreat, my wife literally said to me, "What happened? You even look different." My life will never be the same. Nor will the life of my wife and my children.
I read this book just out high school and reread it later in life. As a young woman I am thankful to have read this when I did. I was pursuing a degree in STEM as one of 3 woman in a sea of hundreds of men struggling to feel like I couldn't be both an intelligent, strong and feminine woman. It helped me develop compassion and a "heart" for men who are also struggling in this new and modern world. It is a difficult from both sides, and as much as I struggled it was eye opening to consider that men struggle as much with what is masculinity and society's perception.
Rereading this now at a later point in life with a more balanced perspective reality is I feel it deserves a lower star rating even though I was able at one point to gain so much from it.
Not because the material is poor but because unless you come from a religious background, the Midwest or from a perspective that this was written from it would be very difficult to gain the quality points without wading through religious propaganda . Not that there is anything wrong with it! But from the outside it would be difficult to suggest this book to someone that was not religious or even someone that was on the fence. Instead of growing a seed it may shut them off further.
So for those looking for more critical evaluation of a now (slightly older book) this is a great book for young men and woman looking for a different perspective and deeper understanding. It may not be appropriate for all crowds although the philosophy behind it is.

Many people seem to think Eldredge is promoting stereotypical male behaviour as the ideal (aggression and so on). That's not what this book is idealising. It is equipping men for the spiritual fight, not physical fight.
The underlying claim is that adventure is the way to find your heart again.
It spoke to me on so many levels.
I think every man should read it to understand himself and his relationships but would also recommend it to wives (and would-be wives)and mothers. It will help all understand the heart of a man.
