Our God is not distant deity, but a passionate, loving Father. Because of his love he has often wooed us with a life filled with unparalleled beauty, intriguing relationship and wonderful adventure. But we often reject his advances in order to pursue our careers, find self-fulfillment and seek after any number of lovers who are far less wild. In The Sacred Romance John Eldredge and Brent Curtis challenge us to let go of these "less-wild lovers" so that we can begin the journey back to the passionate lover of our souls. Don't miss this opportunity to return to the intimacy, beauty and adventure of life with God.
From childhood on, something or Someone has called us on a journey of the heart. It is a journey full of intimacy, adventure, and beautyâ·but like any fairy tale it is also fraught with more than a little danger. To ignore this whispered call is to become one of the living dead who carry on their lives divorced from their most intimate selves, their heart. The Sacred Romance calls to us in our fondest memories, our greatest loves, our noblest achievements, even our deepest hurts. The reward is worth the risk. God Himself longs for us, if we are but willing . . .
The Sacred Romance strikes a chord in us because more than in any other age, we have lost touch with our hearts. We have left that essential part of ourselves behind in the pursuit of efficiency, success, and even Christian service.
If you long for something more, even if you don't know what that something is, then open this profound book. Before long you will find yourself eagerly turning the pages to find out what happens next. The Sacred Romance is the story of our lives; it is God's story. It is His invitation to experience His unfathomable love for us.
