The Heart of A Man

What have you done with your heart as a man? Deep in the heart of every man are three core desires:

To fight a great battle...

To live in an epic adventure...

To rescue the beauty...

In this powerful resource, John Eldredge and the Ransomed Heart team awaken the heart of a man and illuminate the battle, the adventure, and the beauty...the Life that is truly life. All men die. Few men ever really live.

What kind of man do you want to be?

Epic - The Larger Story for Men

In Epic--The Larger Story for men, John

Sure, good things happen. But tragic things happen too. What does it mean? We find ourselves in the middle of a story that is sometimes wonderful, sometimes awful, but 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.

Ours is a great story that began before the dawn of time. A story of adventure, risk, loss, heroism, and betrayl. 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.

This is the Gospel like you've never heard it before.

There is a Larger Story. And you have an irreplaceable role to play.

the poser

NEW Release!

The Poser

There are few things a man fears more than exposure...being found out. Why do most men feel shrinkage around the mechanic, their accountant, or their wife? When thrown into a group of of strong men, what causes men to offer everything but who they truly are?

What would it be like to be free of the ducking, the dodging, the hiding, the bullsh*t? What would it be like to be true?

In this brutally honest and refreshingly redemptive teaching, Craig McConnell and the Ransomed Heart team pull off their own "fig leafs". They help get to the root of the poser, and discover the true man buried inside.

healing the wound

NEW Release!

Healing The Wound

We live east of Eden. And, no one gets through this world with a whole heart. Some of us try to minimize the wounds deep within us; other ignore them entirely. At the core of the Gospel is Jesus' invitation to restore our shattered hearts.

In this utterly transforming teaching and guided prayer, John Eldredge and the Ransomed Heart team not only unpack the story behind our shattered hearts, but also lead us on a journey of restoration by the hand of God. Through the unscripted and brutally honest stories of men, discover the true promise of the Gospel--the healing of our hearts. You have never known love quite like this.

the new name

NEW Release!

The New Name

Join Craig McConnell as he explores how the Masculine Journey involves a continuation of the healing of our wounds and the breaking of agreements and scripts we've adapted for our lives. As we begin to see ourselves as God sees us, and to embrace all that the full work of Christ has accomplished, we begin to believe and experience a new identity--a new name....a reorientation of who we truly are and our place in God's Larger Story.

a battle to fight

Updated artwork, same great teaching

A Battle To Fight

sk the men you know to name their favorite movies. Nine times out of ten, they will be stories of great battles, fought against desperate odds.

Watch little boys at play. They nearly always wind up acting out their dreams to be a Hero in the midst of great battles.

God set this desire in the heart of every man because every man will find himself in a great battle. The Bible promises it is so. We live in a world at war, an epic struggle of good and evil begun before the dawn of time. Learning how to fight in this battle is essential for every man.

In these talks (recorded live at our Wild at Heart Boot Camp and Advanced retreats) John Eldredge explains the place of spiritual warfare in our lives, how to identify it, and more importantly, how to win against our adversary! This teaching has set countless men (and women!) free.

an adventure to live

An Adventure To Live

very man needs a mission. An adventure.

Finding the calling God has for him is one of the single most significant turning points of his life. Join Bart Hansen as he unpacks how God draws boys and men into adventure, and ultimately to THE great adventure he has for each of us – our true life calling.

Recorded live at the Wild at Heart Boot Camp and Advanced retreats, these talks have helped countless men (and women!) find their way into God’s call upon their life.

men talking about women

Updated artwork, same great teaching

Men Talking About Women

This series begins with a talk John Eldredge gives at our men’s retreats called “Rescuing the Beauty.” John, Bart Hansen, Craig McConnell, and Gary Barkalow then go into the studio to offer some personal stories and illustrations to help further unpack that session.


John shares on sexual healing and wholeness, ... including a guided time of healing prayer. Never before has this been made available outside our men's retreats. Topping off the series, the guys head back to the studio to offer some very honest and hopeful stories from their journeys.

For a long time now we’ve wanted to speak to men--on the record--about issues men wrestle with when it comes to women and beauty and sexuality. But how to approach the subject in a way both honest and helpful?

We think we've finally done it.

the stages of the masculine journey

Previously released as
Fathered by God LIVE

The Stages of the Masculine Journey

How does a man become a man--and know that he is one? For centuries, boys and men followed a process of masculine initiation, a journey God put in the heart of every boy. But we lost that, about the same time we lost a father-centered view of the world, and lost so many of our own fathers. Most men, and most boys growing up these days, have no man to guide them in their journey to become a man. But there is hope.

Join John Eldredge as he reveals how God comes to a man as Father, and invites him on a journey of masculine initiation. John walks through the stages of the journey--from Boyhood to the Cowboy, the Warrior, the Lover, the King, the Sage--and shows us how we can offer this to our sons as well.

This resource was previously released under different titles: The Masculine Journey and Fathered by God Live.


NEW Release!


To know God as a generous, strong and intimate Father. To receive a spirit of Sonship and walk in the strength and dignity of our inheritance as sons of God. This is our destiny and the intention of the heart of God.

Why is it that most men live with core beliefs very counter to this? Most men's internal world goes something like: I am one my own. If anything good is going to happen, it's up to me to make it happen. i need to be the strongest man in my world. Why is life so damn hard?

In this transforming teaching, Morgan Snyder illuminates one of the central invitations of the Gospel--to forsake independence and fatherlessness, and to receive God as Father. To become sons, as we were intended to be...

fighting for the hearts of your children

NEW conversation with the RH team

Fighting for the Hearts of Your Children

This recording features members of the Ransomed Heart Men's Team speaking on life as parents. In the same way God charges us in Proverbs 4:23 to "watch over our own hearts," we are charged to watch over the hearts of our sons and daughters.

The core questions of the hearts of little girls and little boys are reviewed: "You know their question," says John Eldredge, "so answer it! Little boys need to know they have what it takes, and little girls need to know you delight in them." Specific ways to answer these core questions in the hearts of older children are also offered.

"Until the day he dies, every man will still long for words of affection from his father." The same is true for every woman.

It is never too late to fight for the hearts of our children.
