The back cover says it best: ““Modern Christianity tells us to kill our desire and call that sanctification.” The overriding message behind this book is that too often we stifle our desire, rather than allowing ourselves to desire the life God intended. Like most of John Eldredge’s books, it strikes a chord deep inside of us that perhaps we have forgotten about, ignored, or been told to suppress. As this book shows, the devil is so quick to manipulate our desires, but God wants to redeem them for His glory. That’s what this is all about: giving God permission to ignite our desires and become fully alive as the men and women of God He has made us to be. It serves as a much needed wakeup call to the Church.
