Excellent and Easy Read!

I have always enjoyed reading books and listening to John Eldredge.  John and his son, Sam, have cowritten a book entitled, Killing Lions: A Guide Through the Trials Young Men Face.  Once again, John does not disappoint me in what he has to say in this book.

This book is a conversation between father and son, as Sam begins his journey after college and into marriage.  The reader gets an inside glimpse at some of the personal conversations father and son have.  As always, John is very open with many of his answers to Sam's questions and concerns. 

John has always been an advocate that boys need to be boys and men be men.  I believe John is correct with this belief.  Yet, it should all be with respect for all people.  The title comes from a story that an African man had to kill a lion in order to be viewed as a leader and a hero in his community.  For many men, this is symbolic as they must conquer their fears and insecurities as they move into the world and face a warfare they never knew existed.

In the back of the book are a few various prayers.  Overall, this is an excellent book, which is also easy to read, filled with powerful insights.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers <http://booklookbloggers.com> book review bloggers program.  I was not required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.
