My Review:

John and Stasi Eldredge have been favorite authors of mine for a while. I was so excited to read this book, as I absolutely loved reading Wild At Heart (and so did my husband!). This book did not disappoint!  This book will take you on a journey that will not be easy but you will be so blessed after you complete it. You may not agree with everything in the book, but it will challenge you!

You will learn so much about the heart of a woman, as God sees it and that is so incredibly encouraging to me. The Eldredge's will show you just what the role of the woman is according to the bible, not what society thinks it should be. This was so refreshing!

Though there were a few things theologically I did not agree with, I loved that this book shows the reader how God loves us so much that He does not want to keep us the way we are. He wants us to be the woman we were always intented to be! I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge online directly from Thomas Nelson. It is also available through your favorite local Christian bookseller.
