Note: "Fathered by God" is essentially the same content as The Way of the Wild Heart, an earlier book by John Eldredge, with a few of the chapters removed. The Way of the Wild Heart was like two books, a book on being parented by God and then how, in turn, to be a parent to children. Because of the volume of material and confusion with a similarly titled book by John Eldredge, Wild at Heart, the decision was made to split up the content in They Way of the Wild Heart. Fathered by God is a result of that split -- a book solely on being parented by God through the six stages of manhood. If you desire more in-depth teaching on this topic of being parented by God and how to apply that to your own parenting of your children, we recommend The Way of the Wild Heart, which has additional chapters on this topic. Also, if you have not read the most popular book by John Eldredge, Wild at Heart, we strongly recommended doing so. It is also excellent for wives to read to understand their husbands better.
Customer Review -- "Great Read and Powerful Message"
"I have not read Eldredge's book "Way of the Wild Heart" so the material in this book was all pretty new to me. I am a pretty big fan of Eldredge's work especially his book "Wild At Heart." "Wild At Heart" has influenced my life more than any non-religious book I have ever read and I feel Eldredge has continued to masterfully pass his wisdom and insight in this book. Like he did in "Wild At Heart," this book just really speaks to a man's soul and helps him understand the path of manhood as God desinged it. There are so many "uninitiated men" (as Eldredge refers to them in this book) in our society because they have not been fathered and taught how to actually be men. This book really helps to give the reader insight into the areas where men in our society miss out on being initiated into true manhood. Not only does the book point out where we may have been wronged by our earthly fathers, but it gives the reader direction on where he needs to head in our journey towards God ordained manhood. I would highly recommend this book to every man."
