Men, do life's changes seem perplexing? Using biblical examples, best-selling author Eldredge shows how God guides your spiritual and personal growth through six stages of manhood---beloved son, cowboy, warrior, lover, king, and sage. You'll discover how to love freely and mentor your own sons. Previously published as The Way of the Wild Heart. Unabridged. 6 CDs. 7 hours. Read by the author.
There is a path leading to authentic manhood, cut by men who have gone before us, sons following in the footsteps of their fathers, generation after generation. There are perils along the trail, even disasters—all the more reason to rely on the guidance of a Father who has gone before. But in an age when true fathers are in short supply, how do you find the path to manhood? How do you steer clear of the dangers? John Eldredge calls men back to a simple and reassuring truth: God is our Father. In life’s trials and triumphs, God is initiating boys and men through the stages of manhood from beloved Son to Cowboy to Warrior to Lover to King to Sage. Fathered By God maps out the path of manhood—not the rules, not another list of principles, not formulas, but a rich path men have followed for centuries before us. Find that path and become the man God sees in you. Fathered By God contains contents previously published in The Way of the Wild Heart.
