Waking the Dead: The Glory of a Heart Fully Alive

by John Eldredge

Hardcover, 2003




Wild at Heart helped men get their hearts back. Waking the Dead will help us all find the life Christ promised. Jesus said, I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Thats the offer of Christianity, from God himself. Just look at what happens when people are touched by Jesusthe blind see, the lame walk, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life. In other words, to be touched by God is to be restored. To become all God meant you to be. That is what Christianity is supposed to do for youmake you whole, set you free, bring you fully alive. But Jesus also warned that the path to that life is narrow, and few people would find it. Youll notice few have. Waking the Dead will help you find that life, see the fierce battle over your heart, and embrace all that God has for you. There is so much more. Do you want it?… (more)

Bar none, the best treatment of the importance and power of the gospel for this life (not just for eternity). I have read this book four times and I don't recall reading any other book that many times. A life changer!

This is a good book if you can get past the first four chapters. It took me a really really long time to read past the first four chapters but once I did it really picked up and I thought was an enjoyable book. It is a book that shows you that we are meant for adventure and a fulfilled life.

A most inspirational book that gives the reader step-by-step directions on how to live a life, fully alive. Logical and reasonable explanations with hundreds of scriptures from the Bible to explain how easy it is to believe the lie and never think twice about what is reality and what is not.

Supported with great analogies that cause the spirit within you to rise up and begin to fight back for what is rightfully mine as a child of the King.
Only the second book that I've thirsted after and gotten the audio version!!!!

The author has written several popular books on Christianity; he is also a counsellor, teacher, speaker and founder of Ransomed Heart Ministries. In this book his goal is to help people find the “narrow gate that leads to life that only few find. “

Waking the Dead will change your perception of yourself, how God sees you and give you a clearer view of how God sees other people. John Eldredge is a gifted man who only wants to see people free from religious views of God and come to a heart relationship with HIm. When we are touched by the

"Presence of God", we are truly changed and understand we have purpose, more than we imagine.

Try this book if you are sick of religion. You can also get the video form where John reads his own book. He is so expressive (acting background) that every word comes alive as he reads.

This book is part of my collection that really focuses in on Biblical Commentary more than anything else (including some well known authors in the theological world). All of these books haven't been read cover to cover, but I've spent a lot of time with them and they've been helpful in guiding me

Wise words, but nothing stood out strongly enough to make this a notable book for me. Much of what i liked in this book has been said better by others. I was also a little uncomfortable with his approach to "spiritual warfare," which verged on recognizing demon possession and casting demons out.

Not that he explicitly endorses demon possession, which he does briefly say he does not believe, some readers may get the wrong idea when he speaks about battling evil angels, that may be harassing a person, through prayer and counseling. Still, worth a read.
