In Desire, John Eldredge writes, "There is a secret set within each of our hearts. It is the desire for life as it was meant to be." Yet how do we uncover our desires and learn to decipher them? As Eldredge says, "We all share the same dilemma - we long for life and we're not sure where to find it. We wonder if we ever do find it, can we make it last?... We must journey to find the life we prize. And the guide we have been given is the desire set deep within, the desire we often overlook or mistake for something else or even choose to ignore. The greatest human tragedy is to give up the search."
Many good people have been told that the path to a holy life requires us to kill our hearts' desires. And call it sanctification.
But in this re-release of one of Eldredge's most inspiring works, we discover that God is the author of our deepest desires. He has given us desire, and he loves to fulfill our heart's desires.
