The great problem of the earth and the great aim of the masculine journey boil down to this: when can you trust a man with power?
–John Eldredge


What’s the most important thing?

Over two decades ago I set out on a relentless quest to find the answer. What I found was not what I expected, and where I found it was in the most unanticipated places. With it came a restored strength and an unshakable hope.

The most important thing turned out not to be a thing at all, but rather a path. A path to becoming who God meant when he created each one of us. And it is my joy and sacred trust to share it with you.

In this podcast, join John Eldredge and me as we explore the soul-strengthening themes in Becoming a King.

A Joybomb with Becoming a King Pre-Orders

As I recorded the audiobook for Becoming a King, I sensed that the most powerful way to communicate the impact of this message is through the stories of the men who have lived it. Specifically, I wanted to record a conversation with four of the men who have walked shoulder to shoulder with me along this way as each of us has consented to the process of becoming the kind of man to whom God can entrust the care of his Kingdom. But even more, I wanted to risk interviewing our wives and hear directly about what they have seen and experienced in us along the way of becoming a king

So along with Cherie, my bride, I circled up with the wives of four of the men who have been living and forming this message at my side for over a decade in their own personal lives and in community.


I asked these courageous and truth-telling women to share from their perspectives about what they’ve seen in their husbands along this journey. The conversation that transpired was raw, honest, and hope-infused, and I am thrilled to share it with you.
