Publisher's Description

The Challenge Before You Is a Bold One: To Accept the Wild, Daring Adventure of Becoming a Man

We want to be self-sufficient. Find our own direction as we pursue our dreams. Know it all and never ask for help. Isn’t this how most guys approach manhood? On our own, pretending we are doing better than we really are? But sooner or later the thrill of independence gets lost in the fog of isolation.

It’s time to take the pressure off. We were never meant to figure life out on our own.

This book was born out of a series of weekly phone calls between Sam Eldredge, a young writer in his twenties, and his dad, best-selling author John Eldredge. Join the conversation as a father and son talk about pursuing beauty, dealing with money, getting married, chasing dreams, knowing something real with God, and how to find a life you can call your own.

Killing Lions is more than fatherly advice. It is an invitation into a journey: either to be the son who receives fathering or the father who learns what must be spoken. Most important, these conversations speak to a searching generation: “You are not alone. Its not all up to you. You are going to find your way.”

    Killing Lions is a departure from Eldridge's normal writing style. This book is a conversation between John Eldridge and his son Sam who is in his 20's

    Eldridge gives honest insight to his son who discusses his college and post college struggles in his journey to learn what a Man of God is and how to make the decision to strive for that in his own life.

    Covering subjects honestly such as relationships, dealing with money, getting married and life calling as you read this father's caring words for his son you will find wisdom to be spoken to your own sons as well.

    My husband is a college football coach in the south and as we discussed this book it was clear that the subjects covered in Killing Lions are absolutely relevant to the Millennial male. This book could be read individually, would make a great small group book or mentoring book.

    What a great book! It was hard to put it down and when I did, my son picked it up and asked me to get him his own copy. The conversational format invites you in and offers great application in discussions with your own son. There is so much uncertainty and apprehension about the future, and this book offers solid, practical discussions on where it's coming from and how to handle it. The chapter on identity is worth its weight in gold. Highly recommend!

    Disclosure: While I received an advance copy of this product free, I have purchased 5 to distribute to other fathers and my own sons.

    Book Review: Killing Lions: A guide through the trials young men face, by John Eldredge & Sam Eldredge

    As we move through life on our journey toward authentic manhood, every man wants to hear encouraging words--"You are not alone. It's not all up to you. You are going to find your way." That is the theme of the joint venture by father and son, John & Sam Eldredge, Killing Lions: A guide through the trials young men face.

    In the preface, Sam explains that after college, he went through a season of searching. After the elation of being on his own wore off, he found himself floundering. He was struggling on his own, yet wanting to be self-sufficient. He wanted to know it all yet didn't have the answers he wanted for the deeper issues of lifeidentity, relationships, women, work, marriage, doubts about God. It was then he turned to his father.

    As Sam explains,

    I stopped one day and asked my dad if we could talk about how things were going for me. What followed were weekly phone calls where we would dive in to my struggles and seek answers together--conversations not all men get but, I think, all of us desperately want. This book is a result of those conversations, an opportunity for us to flesh out the process for your benefit.

    The story ebbs and flows in and out of the college years, searching for meaningful work, pursuing a young woman, getting married, and chasing my dreams. None of this is fabricatedthe questions are real, the doubts are real, the answers are real. The interaction between father and son are real.

    I recently read an article about a young Maasi man who came to the United States to pursue his master's degree and then a doctoral degree. Before arriving in the Western world, the young warrior had killed a lion in order to protect his village and their cattle. This practice is deep in their tradition--that young men must face and defeat a lion with a spear, should it attack their livestock. He had been badly wounded, as one would expect, but after slaying the predator he was regarded as a hero and a leader. I can't imagine any university final or job interview being very daunting for a man with lion scars across his chest.

    There was something about that story that spoke to the deep places in my soul--something about having faced a great challenge, one in which victory was far from certain, yet conquering it, that makes me wonder. If I had prevailed through my own great trial, would I walk taller or carry a greater confidence into this uncertain future? I can't help but think: if I had taken down a lion, life wouldn't feel like I'm heading out into the bush with only an iPhone at my side.

    And so we offer this book as a confession, an invitation, and a manifesto for a generation.

    I found the book to encouraging and helpful in thinking through the trials and challenges that are faced by a younger generation. It gave me ideas and questions to ask as I talk with my son and other young men in my church.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com http://BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
