I just returned from a weekend Wild at Heart retreat sponsored by our church this weekend. Starting Friday evening and ending Sunday after lunch, we explored the video curriculum written by John Eldredge
Eldredge has made quite an impact with the his books and, like anyone who is going to move the football of progress forward, has also created some controversy. My opinion, his stuff is valid and hard-hitting.
Here’s a recent article in Christianity Today.
Personally, reading Wild at Heart hit a chord with me like few other books in my life. Eldredge has captured some of the most important issues in a man’s heart and created an excellent resource for groups of men to use on the journey.
Of course, as you might expect, some members of the church hierarchy in America aren’t too fond of his work.
