Instead it reaches out to us as humans in general to give a perspective and an insight into something we all have written on our hearts; John just brings it to the surface so we can all see it and recognize it for what it is.

In "Epic," John Eldredge speaks to the heart of God that dwells in us in a whole different way. a way I relate to. I cannot say enough about this writing! To summarize would not come near what it deserves, but I'll make a feeble attempt. This is no fault of the book itself, but it did set up my expectations for something different. 2. The structure of the prose was rather repetitive and redundant at times.

I don’t have a church that I lead.

But I think John Eldredge read the memo backwards, because "normal" paragraphs almost seem to be the exception in his epic (but tiny) book.

When we think of our own story, we may see God as the author - an omniscient. But I think John Eldredge read the memo backwards, because "normal" paragraphs almost seem to be the exception in his epic (but tiny) book. And that's just it: Eldredge wants to make every sentence in this small book breathless (see the last sentence on page 80 I get so tired of books. That break up paragraphs.

Sure, good things happen, sometimes beautiful things. But tragic things happen too. What does it mean? We find ourselves in the middle of a story that is sometimes wonderful, sometimes awful, usually a confusing mixture of both, and we haven't a clue how to make sense of it all. No wonder we keep losing heart.

We need to know the rest of the story.

For when we were born, we were born into the midst of a great story begun before the dawn of time. A story of adventure, of risk and loss, heroism . . . and betrayal. A story where good is warring against evil, danger lurks around every corner, and glorious deeds wait to be done. Think of all those stories you've ever loved-there's a reason they stirred your heart. They've been trying to tell you about the true Epic ever since you were young.

There is a larger story And you have a crucial role to play.

I love stories...fairy tales, fantasy, allegories, fiction, adventure, romance, I love them all. But I'd never seen "The Greatest Story Ever Told" in the light of an epic adventure, true and even more soul satisfying than my most favorite epics..."The Lord of The Rings" & "The Narnia Books."

Eldridge reminds us that the human heart longs for meaningful stories with endings that satisfy our hopes that somehow, all will turn out right in the end. Why else would we read books, go to movies or watch television programs? We want good to win out over evil, otherwise why would we cry "unfair" when the bad guy cheats to win...or the innocent are blamed and punished for something they didn't do?

So why do we long for happy endings and good to triumph over evil? Because God has placed, in our hearts, a desire for Himself and the perfect relationship with Him that we lost out on in the beginning of time.

As I read this book everything in me cried, "YES, YES, YES!!! Read it...you won't be sorry!3¡`?

I recommend this book for anyone that's been feeling a little dulled in their relationship with the Lord. The book awakens emotions about the true nature of our Father and really opened my eyes to a whole other level of that love that I had not envisioned or experienced.

I also love how John Eldredge says what we're all thinking, but are afraid to, about certain parts of religion that create dulling effect. You feel a sense of camaraderie, and much needed connection, in hearing another Christian openly and honestly voice the concerns and thoughts that I think most of us are afraid to. Very much enjoyed the read and took a new perspective away.

I have read John Eldredge's longer work, Waking the Dead, from which this is distilled. I keep several copies of Epic with me and find them helpful when talking about the larger issues of life with someone who has questions: does my life matter? Am I crazy for thinking I should be doing more with it? Not a quick read, not an easy read, but not an overwhelming read. Perfect to give away!

Within the first few words, John Eldredge had drawn me deep into his Epic. I've studied (and taught) the Bible for many years and read most of the other literary works he mentions. As I read, I found myself shaking my head at the sheer beauty of his explanations! He brings so much into his description that I cannot imagine anyone not getting the picture. Now, I need to find some of Mr. Eldredge's writing!

I read this book in a matter of hours, then ordered a handful of copies for friends and family. They all told me they tore through it and loved it when they were done. My father, an avid tv watcher and book hater, read this book in two days. He said it only took him that long because he hates sitting for long periods, but the book was so good he was on page 60 after the first time he opened it.
It's worth the buy. And definitely worth your time.

This is our second copy since we lent it to someone and couldn't remember who. It is more than worth buying twice. If you love people, if you love their stories, if you love storytelling, you will most assuredly appreciate this telling experience. John Eldredge lays the foundation for all stories since the beginning of time. If you are religious, you may be confused, but its a good confusion, because it challenges the kind of thinking that can naturally evolve with over-exposure to religion, an American phenomena. He brings literature to life and stirs ones heart to want to have a faith that is alive..... a true and living experience with the true and living God. If you don't want your comfort zone rattled, don't buy this. If you like being bored with the religion you are comfortable living, don't buy this. If you are willing to be challenged, you won't be sorry for buying this!

John Eldredge does such a good job of explaining the story we are all in. I would recommend this book to Christians and even non-believers. Epic paints the bible as the story of our lives. The bible is the greatest love story ever golf and I hope if you're reading Epic that you would join in.
I bought this on a whim, partially because the price was right. I finished it in three hour-to-an-hour-and-a-half sessions, though faster readers will be able to read it even quicker.

I really enjoyed it, for a couple of reasons. First, the writing style is very engaging. Eldredge knows how to punctuate and present ideas well. He keeps the reader excited about what should be an exciting topic. Second, the book seems to have a number of good uses. For example, it could be given out as a kind of extended tract or evangelism tool (it really does work well in that way). It could also be used as an introduction to biblical theology, as it lays out a very basic framework for understanding the message of the Christian bible. Finally, it could be helpful as an introductory manual to literary criticism from a Christian perspective. Eldredge does a great job putting forth the elements of why human beings enjoy STORIES so much, and connecting those elements to the gospel.

Indeed, if I ever were to teach a literature class at a Christian high school, I would consider using this text as a preface to the course. That way, students would have some framework to refer back to as they read such classics as Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, Macbeth, Paradise Lost, or really any piece of literature.

Perhaps the only fault in the book is its occasional repetitiveness, but that is certainly forgivable given its affinity to an oral presentation.

Note that there is also a live DVD version of the content of the book which students would certainly enjoy (separate purchase required). There is also an epilogue with additional reading suggestions, including the following link: [...]
