Book Description

Sept. 15 2008

Too many marriages end when someone says "I've fallen out of love with you" or "I don't love you anymore." The Love Dare discusses how these statements reveal a lack of understanding about the fundamental nature of true love.

As featured in the popular new movie Fireproof, from the team that brought us Facing the Giants, The Love Dare is a 40-day guided devotional experience that will lead your heart back to truly loving your spouse while learning more about the design, nature, and source of true love. Each reading includes Scripture, a statement of principle, the day's "dare," and a journaling area and check box to chart progress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Daring Nov. 29 2010
By Theresa
Format:Paperback
As most people might already know, this book is based upon the Christian movie "Fireproof", which is about a man who saves his marriage by completing a character-testing, 40-day list of "dares" suggested to him by his father. Like the movie, the book of course is Christian based as well.

I loved the movie and the book is more of the same. However I looked at both of them from the perspective of a person happily married for over 15 years. I can tell you that while I don't practice all the dares in the book, my spouse and I are good about doing many of them- and of course there's always room for improvement. From my personal experience, I feel like concentrating on the kinds of ideas presented in the book have been absolutely key to making our marriage last.

Now the book itself also consists of a 40-day list of dares. For each day, there's about a page and a half or so of advice, followed by a specific dare and some space for you to write down your personal reflections. Dares range from things such as practicing patience to writing out a renewal of your vows. The guys will probably particularly like Day 32!

As you can tell, I highly recommend going to see the movie and reading the book. In a society that places a high value on looks and money, while sporting a 50% divorce rate, its nice to see more movies and books coming out that get people more focused on the right values in life. Even if you don't do anything more than just glance through the book, you're going to be given something to think about. Other self-help books I enjoyed include Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Dare You to Love This Way !!! April 14 2009
Format:Paperback
I could say that this book has been too long in coming to light, but God has His own timing. It isn't just for married couples - any relationship, be it parent/child, co-workers, business partners, siblings, other relatives, etc... can all benefit from the principles brought out by this book. These principles originally come from the Word of God, yet somehow, this book "The Love Dare" brings a modern perspective to true love in a format that is easily understood at a time when it is sorely needed. The meaning of the word 'love' and the sacredness of marriage have been so distorted throughout the ages that they are now a far cry from what they were initially intended to be. This book helps people to experience a reality check and if they want to see the bigger picture, it leads back to THE book it is based on. The movie 'Fireproof' that goes along with 'The Love Dare' hit a few sore spots in my own life, which I intend to remedy, by God's grace.

5.0 out of 5 stars straight-forward insights into what love really is Sept. 16 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Practical, nuts and bolts, down to earth, straight-forward insights into what love really is, and clear examples of how to live out love day by day in your marriage. This book was instrumental in helping my wife and I get through some very, very difficult times in our marriage, and then come out on the other side with move love, more fun, and more life in our relationship than ever before! The book is composed of 40, short, pithy, to-the-point, deeply significant and real devotionals that shed light on all the different aspects of love, give clear examples of how to apply it in your marriage, and then exercises - "dares" - to do something concrete each day to put what you've learned into practice. IT'S AMAZING! There is no way my wife and I could give too high or strong a recommendation for this book! If you're married, read it and take the dare! You will never regret it if you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Dare.... Loved it!! Oct. 7 2009
Format:Imitation Leather
If you've seen and enjoyed the movie ''Fireproof'', and have been touched by its message, and felt deep down that it can help you, your couple, or friends and loved ones.. then you're gonna love this book.

It's a step by step guide to rekindle the love in your marriage.. or hints to keep it burning if its burning bright. I've been told that some parishes even use it in their marriage preparation courses. A must have for all couples. Would make a great wedding or anniversary gift. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
