Every little girl has dreams of being swept up into a great adventure, of being the beautiful princess. Sadly, when women grow up, they are often swept up into a life filled merely with duty and demands. Many Christian women are tired and struggling under the weight of the pressure to be a "good servant," a nurturing caregiver, or a capable home manager.

What Wild at Heart did for men, Captivating will do for women. By revealing the core desires every woman shares- to be romanced, to play an irreplaceable role in a grand adventure, and to unveil beauty-John and Stasi Eldredge invite women to recover their feminine hearts, created in the image of an intimate and passionate God.

Join us as we journey into the deep mysteries of our feminine souls in order to recapture our hearts. Through the help of this Leader's Guide, you will lead your group as you embark together on a great adventure of coming alive as a woman . . . God's captivating woman.

I'm not quite sure I believe all that is covered in this book, but the idea that only God can fill the empty places in us really resonated with me. I wish the book had dealt more with how one really learns to trust and turn to God for love and acceptance and validation.read more

THE best Christian women's book I've ever read! For the first time I really understand some of the passions of my life. Stasi bares her soul and shares the exciting journey to which Jesus invites women. She starts with Eve and uses lessons from other women (both from the Bible and real life) to inspire women to value 1) themselves, 2) other women, and 3) men.She and her husband John coauthored this book and the male/female perspectives really enhance the message. Highly recommended!read more

Wow, this book explains what is capitivating in a woman and how to bring that out. How God made you to be unique as a woman and to cherish that.

This book re-enforces, perhaps defiant feminists may cry, nothing but the image of a weak woman that the 'patriarchal Church' has always tried to impose on Western societies. Within Christian circles, the validity of the book's message have equally been disputed. I personally, however, found in this book some sort of comfort, because I was that kind of girl which it described. It has helped me in accepting what I thought was a 'silly' part of me.

This book written by a Christian couple is based on the premise that a woman longs for three things; to be romanced, an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, and beauty to unveil. Although, in summary, it sounds quite cheesy, Stasi and John guide the reader on a journey through scripture, literature, and real experiences that tend to lack empirical and statistical evidence yet resonates within the recesses of the mind.That God created man, both male and female, in his own image is an accepted Christian doctrine. The authors take this doctrine a step further by expressing the divine nature of womanhood. He specifically blessed us with qualities that are feminine; relational, beautiful and seeking validation. It is their goal to assist the female reader unveil her femininity and connect with God and her man.Validation is found within the books pages as the authors reveal that God is beautiful and glorious. He seeks to have an intimate relationship with His children. He seeks our honest hearts and implores us to seek Him.It is easy to assume that every woman carries with her wounds that have not healed. Most pop psychology books provide ample fodder that our parents have wounded us. I tire of this mentality. It quickly establishes that our parents are the enemy rather than part of a support system that shaped our diverse personalities and independent selves. This mentality also relieves the grown child of any responsibility to respond differently to stimuli.On the other hand, John and Stasi Eldredge offer compelling arguments for accepting our Divine Nature and infinite worth as Children of God. A God who reserves a piece within His heart that only we can fill. A god who can validate our existence and provide shelter and peace.This book will not appeal to every reader. While reading it, I found gems of truth that resonated within my soul. In my attempts to articulate these truths at a later time, they sound sloppy and cheesy.Bottom line: We possess divine matter. The qualities that are belittled and squelched for the perceived lack of strength are really our divine nature. It is the woman who seeks out relationships and deeply connects to those around her. It is the glue that holds society together. We are the ezer kenegdo, a beautiful Latin word that can not be directly translated into the English language and is erroneously penned as "help meet" to our husbands, conjuring utilitarian images. In a more accurate picture, we are the part of Adam that he lacks. Together we complete each other and hold a healthy and vital balance of who God is.
