    One thought on “The Journey of Desire: Searching for the Life We Always Dreamed of

    1. Lauren Hackbarth on said:

      I bought this book on a whim and it has been one of those reads that really found me instead of the other way around There is really no way for me to review this book because I think that Christian literature meets you in the place that you re at and the transformation that your heart undergoes is dependent on where your heart is at that starting point This book has met me at a low point, but if you understand how low that point is you ll understand how great a blessing the book is So this book [...]

    2. Gela on said:

      I ve had this book for years Needless to say I believe people break away from church because we are made to fear God plain and simple I don t know how I feel about this book It s not for me Maybe I ll pick it up again later and like it I ve been known to do that.

    3. Ryn on said:

      I did not like this book I did, however, love another one of his books Walking with God Talk to Him, Hear from Him I believe timing of reading them in my life had everything to do with liking one book not liking the other I must be fair I read this book while single, while going through some challenges at work with the certainty of the position I was posted in as temporary hoping for permanency I was in a new city, trying something different I thought this book would help me I was not happy as I [...]

    4. Andi on said:

      John Eldredge s The Journey of Desire is a book that met me right where I needed to be The basic premise of this work is that people need to recover their desires, their true desires, and go after them For believers, that means we need to thirst for and long for life with God that we also need to follow those desires that are given to us our vocations, our passions, our loves Wow, did I need to be reminded of that As Eldredge points out, so much of life tells us to deaden our desires, to just ge [...]

    5. Amberjoy on said:

      It is allowing me to question why I put things away in my heart and focus on the mere survival of life I am starting to challenge myself in either living out my desires stemming from who God created me to be or grieving those desires that will never come to be What an eye opener.

    6. Jennifer on said:

      I had to put this book down after every chapter at the longest to absorb the many lessons, many times after only a few pages or even a paragraph It helped me turn on the flashlight of self appraisal and guided me to shine it to the darkest corners of my self Read it slowly but definitely read it.

    7. Matt Mobley on said:

      I really enjoyed this book and this author His book Wild at Heart is 1 of my favorite books ever I do not see eye to eye with everything this Christian author writes I do enjoy his uplifting books and when I read them, I feel like I have heard an inspiring church message.

    8. Joy on said:

      I am a bit of a book snob, especially when it comes to Christian literature terrible, I know , and I often look with great derision upon those fluffy touchy feely works of what might be called inspirational literature Despite the vague and lofty descriptions that are found on the back of the book blurb, I ventured into Eldredge s book about human desire, fulfillment, and Christian life I read his immensely popular Wild at Heart years ago when it first came out, and remember having a positive imp [...]

    9. Bethany on said:

      I tend to rate books on how much they ll be memorable and continue to change my life after I m done reading them I read part of this book and then returned to it I don t recall a whole lot about the first 3 4, but the last quarter of the book made it well worth it for me Eldredge talked a lot about desire and how God created us with a restless longing for him I ve spent a lot of my life shying away from desire, thinking it wrong, or wrong in an unmarried season of life, at least Eldredge contrib [...]

    10. Stanton on said:

      The analytical side of me feels like this book is kind of ADD In that though there is definitely a lot to be gleaned from it The last three chapters and the chapter intros with the sea lion looking for the sea to me are the most important parts of the book There is a deep yearning in all of us and most don t really know what to do with it This book seeks to explain some of that and inspire us to move past the hurt and embrace the love and grace that Christ offers us.

    11. Jane on said:

      It s really a hard work on part of the author to come up with such an excellent book It does dig the very core of human s desire the need to live in accordance with God s will and ways which so often bombarded by the world s enticing offers for a better life This book reminds me to desire for the best and what is worthwhile in this once given life.

    12. Rachelle on said:

      This was the best book I ve ever read I love all of John Eldredge s writings and so far this book is unmatched I m presently reading Waking the Dead and it s starting off just as good as I d hoped.

    13. Eric Reidsma on said:

      Insightful it changed my perspective on life for the better

    14. Karina Harris on said:

      John Eldredge has become one of my favorite Christian authors I started this one awhile ago, and lost it sorry to say covered it recently and picked right back up where I left off.

    15. Giedra on said:

      We are never living, but hoping to live Blaise Pascal It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are alive There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them George Eliot And I still haven t found what I m looking for U2 And so began this book I loved the quotes that began each chapter, generally a mix of quotes from the Bible, various historical religious figures, poets, playwrights, and popular music Other favorites from music included [...]

    16. misha on said:

      I m not sure how I ended up with this book I m pretty it was left over from a bookswap, and I thought I would finally give it a read I m simply the wrong audience for the book As a non Christian, I don t suffer from lack of desire My whole heart is open to the beauty of the world ever day, and I ve never felt that it was wrong He also writes for an audience who has spent their life reading Christian literature, so many of his references went over my head Finally, when he talked about women never [...]

    17. Sarah House on said:

      There are some nuggets in this book but I found it generally very difficult to read with all the excerpts from songs, poetry, Shakespeare, and various other authors of old heavily dispersed throughout it Also, I was disappointed that the story of the sea lion just ended with a glimpse at hope, but no actual conclusion I would have given up on this book in the first few chapters had we not been reading it together as staff

    18. Gregory P. Lennox on said:

      Intensely personal book with frequent insights I enjoyed this book but its rather uneven Eldridge tries almost too hard to avoid how to s, making his message muddled at times But regardless of that, he beings a useful and refreshing perspective to the questions of passions and desire in the context of Christian discipleship stating that passion and desire are at the heart of true discipleship.

    19. Nick on said:

      As much as I enjoyed Wild at Heart I didn t really enjoy this one at all It felt choppy and hard to follow at times The message is a good one but the flow to the reading just didn t seem to be there.

    20. Chris Diehl on said:

      This is one of my top 10 recommendations every Christian should read A very foundational look at how to direct the range of our innermost wants and needs in a healthy, biblical, real and passionate way

    21. Paul McDonald on said:

      What a tremendous book written in the aftermath of Brent s death An event that could have shaken his faith, his desire to see God work, resulted in this powerful testament to God s desire for our hearts Definitely a book to savor, chew on and process to apply these lessons to our hearts.

    22. Becky Reeseman coyle on said:

      This book changed me A beautifully encouraging read.

    23. Jene Barranco on said:
