Sometimes it seems we just can’t get what we want. Circumstances thwart our best-laid plans. We struggle to live a heartfelt life. Worst of all, says Eldredge, the modern church mistakenly teaches its people to kill desire, calling it sin, and to replace it with duty or obligation, calling it sanctification. As a result, at best, Christians tend to live safe, boring lives of resignation. At worst, their desire eventually breaks out in destructive ways, such as substance abuse, affairs, and pornography addictions. In The Journey of Desire, Eldredge invites listeners to rediscover God-given desire and to search again for the life they once dreamed of.
