Overview

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."

John Eldredge (Wild at Heart) is joined by his son, Sam, for a give-and-take examination of what it takes to become a man. A writer in his 20s, Sam asks advice from his father John, a Christian counselor, author, and adventurer, and John responds. The elder Eldredge rejects the hackneyed “the journey is the destination” language, instead counseling his son that it’s time to enter into the “warrior” phase of becoming who you are meant to be. With allusions and stories drawn from literature, global adventures, mistakes John has made, and sound fatherly advice, the book also includes prayers for guidance and for sexual healing. For John Eldredge fans, seeing the younger and more idealistic Eldredge not getting doused with cold water and told to grow up, but instead fanned into flame by his father is pure gold for fathers and their young adult sons. Agents: Sealy and Curtis Yates, Yates and Yates. (Sept.)
