I read this one quickly. I started reading The Sacred Romance and switched to this. I’ve heard so many people talk so much about it I needed to see what the fuss was about. The short of it:I think he has some sound theories on how men act many times, but I don’t agree with his methods of deriving those theories. The bottom line is this…I just don’t know. I found myself nodding in agreement over many things he said, just not how he got to them. Seems to me there are other theories that might fit. If you’ve missed the phenomenon, this book is about how all men are created with some built-in passions, that, since the fall, cannot be filled without God. Agreed. Those passions are: Desire for conquest, the desire to be outside, etc. I’m stretching a bit, but you get the point…it’s an interesting read, but not something I’m going to take too much stock in.
