John Eldredge is a bestselling author, a counselor, and a teacher. He is also president of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God, recover their own hearts in God's love, and learn to live in God's kingdom.
In his new book Get Your Life Back, released in February 2020, John provides a practical, simple, and refreshing guide to taking your life back. By practicing a few simple practices—or what John calls “graces”—you can begin to recover your soul, disentangle from the tragedies of this broken world, and discover the restorative power of beauty.
John's most notable piece of work is his book "Wild at Heart" released in 2000 and continues to minister to men across the world two decades later.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to John about rest, why the noise of technology is so difficult for us to turn down, the power of the one minute pause, his love for soccer and his awesome testimony of coming to faith in Christ after a life of drugs and alcohol.
