Publisher's Summary

The human soul has a built-in yearning for joy and beauty and all good things. But that craving for life has taken a real beating in the last few years. Join New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge as he gives you the tools you need to follow Jesus' path of supernatural resilience so you can reclaim your joy, strengthen your heart, and thrive through the storm.

Between false promises of ease and comfort on one side and the sheer trauma of global disease and disasters on the other, people today are facing a shortage of peace, happiness, and strength. In Resilient, Eldredge reveals a path toward genuine recovery and resilience through Jesus himself.

Drawing on wisdom from Scripture and Christian tradition, and illustrated throughout with powerful, true stories of grit and survival, Resilient will help you:

  • Recover from the trauma of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Tap into the river of life that God promises his people
  • Learn to be patient with yourself—genuine recovery from spiritual and emotional trauma takes time and intentionality
  • Create a plan to foster resilience in your day-to-day life
  • Discover deep wells of freedom and strength through Christ who lives within us

Thriving requires a resilient soul. This book will help you find the resilience you long for when the world has gone mad—and discover in Jesus himself the strength that prevails.

Biggest Rescue Since Wild At Heart

John Eldredge is still intercepting destruction in people’s lives, especially mine. After everything that’s happened in the last few years, this is a book for the ages. Well done, good and faithful servant of the Most High.

Well…

This is the most beautiful book I’ve listened to in…maybe ever. John offers so much hope here. This will be part of a regular “diet” of books for me. 10/10

Changing my mindset and life changing

I love the way John writes and ties in his faith and the entire journey. I’ll listen again and again.
I highly recommend his Pause app and the 30-day resilience program. Together these two things have brought me closer to Jesus and have taught me to hand it all over and amazing things are happening in my life. Thank You John

What my heart needed.

I have journeyed with John’s journey for the past two decades. His message never seems to change and yet it is always, ALWAYS fresh. I don’t have adequate words to explain how God has used John’s journey, writing, honesty and obedience to bless my life. However, when the full restoration of all things comes, and maybe I get to meet him, he’ll know. Get this book and meditate on it. Do what he says. And most importantly see God in the pages, principals and practices, gently and firmly beckoning your heart. Grace and peace to you.

Excellent book for refocusing your life on Jesus

Well written and applicable. Cuts right to the heart of our culture with a prescription on how to do life better without another to do list of things to do. Great author and counselor.

Great Book! I needed this.

This book was like a cold glass of water to my thirsty soul. I’ve been reading this and doing the 30 days to resilience in the Pause App and both have had a great effect on my well being. I highly recommend.

Rescue

John Eldredge offers another just-in-time instruction for us in the final days of this age, the time of the 10 virgins. For those hoping to escape the enemy’s siren call for “things to just be good again” and instead stand whole-hearted before Christ Jesus at his return, this message is another treasure hidden in a field. Remember Lot’s wife.

it was okay.

I am a big fan of John Eldredge's books, especially wild at heart and fathered by God, but this was just okay. The main point of the chapters were good and he brought out some very good and clear direction, but the constant therapist speech and guided prayers weren't necessarily my thing. I may try reading later on and see how that goes.

Essential reading. Brilliant book.

I love the author and his work already . It was a gift to hear him read the book himself. I shall be revisiting this book many times and will purchase the paper copy. Enjoy it. I found it better as a portion a day as opposed to all in one go .
