Product Description

John Eldredge offers an inside look into the conversations between father and son, answering questions and sharing lessons about love, money, work, God, and life.

Who came up with the notion that the day you graduate from college you are a fully developed adult stepping into a wonderful and fully developed life? It's madness. Life just doesn't follow a clean, clear linear path. More important, people don't. "Killing Lions" is an exploration, by father and son, of the questions young men face coming into manhood--questions that continue to haunt many men well into middle age.

Whatever else might be going on in his life, every young man is in the workshop of God, in the training of becoming a man. This is his Great Mission, the deeper stream, the far more important work than career. He has a few lions to kill before he will know he has become a man and that God can entrust him with dreams coming true.

In the summer of 2012, Samuel Eldredge was one year out of college and about to ask a girl to marry him. He turned to his dad for counsel, and what unfolded over several months was a series of conversations about love, money, work, God, and life that became the passion for "Killing Lions." In the middle of those conversations, John asked Sam, "How many of your peers have anyone they can ask these questions?" Sam answered, "I don't know any. No one."

"Killing Lions" is the dialog between a young man trying to find his life's direction and an older man offering wisdom and insight on the timeless issues of the journey toward adulthood. Every man, young or not, can benefit from the life lessons John Eldredge has passed on to his son.

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.
