Book Club - new book

Our new book for this month 'Captivating' by John & Stasi Eldredge, their are also the authors of Wild at Heart my husband has this book. He wasn't too enthralled with it, but we do have slightly different tastes in books so I am still quite open minded about it.

The subtitle of this book is 'Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul', still doesn't quite give anything way. My friend S who is also a member of the book club borrowed a copy of the book from a Mother's group that she goes to library. Which is such a blessing, as I mentioned in the first post about how I was alittle unsure about having to buy a new book every month.

This is one of those books that you hear people say it is life changing and that God has really spoken to them and opened their eyes through this book. So this could be a very interesting read.

'Captivating. John Eldgredge and his wife, Stasi, show women how to reveal their core desires - to be romanced, to play and irreplaceable role in a grand adventure, and to unveil beauty - and encourage them to restore their feminine heart. In the style of Wild at Heart, women are shown the possibilities their dreams can afford, and men are given a glimpse into a woman's soul, where they can see the strength and beauty God placed there for a reason.'


  1. I started reading that book with a woman's group a few years ago. I thought it was quite good, but I haven't finished it!

    My friend really hates it though- I think she might just have the misinterpretted it? Will be interested to see what you think. :-)

  2. Think that it might be one of those books that some people really like or don't like at all. We will have to see how it goes.
