10 Passions of a Man's Soul by Mark Elfstrand

Mark Elfstrand has a great resource for men here in "10 Passions of a Man's Soul." To enhance his own writing, he also incorporates insights from other men and their insight on these passions. These men include Bob Lepine, John Eldredge, Joe Stowell, Bill McCartney, Dave Ramsey, Erwin McManus, Bill Hendricks, Steve Arterburn, Gary Chapman and Crawford Loritts. He takes a look at the passions that we as men have. The key to understanding these passions is to have a correct balance. He uses an illustration of what he calls the continuum for each purpose. In the middle is obviously the area of balance and then there are two extremes on either side. Staying on either extreme means that we're missing some of the aspects of understanding what it means to be a man and truly embrace these passions in the way they're meant to be. These passions are:
1. The Passion for Purpose
2. The Passion for Adventure
3. The Passion for Power
4. The Passion for Winning
5. The Passion for Wealth
6. The Passion for Self-Preservation
7. The Passion for the Hunt
8. The Passion of Pleasure
9. The Passion of Relationships
10. The Passion of Legacy
This is a book that is suitable for individual or group use and an invaluable resource for anyone who is ready to explore the heartfelt desires of a real man's soul.

Special thanks to Moody Publishers for providing this complimentary book to read and review.
