ABOUT THIS BOOK

What the Eldredge bestsellers Wild at Heart did for men, and Captivating did for women, LOVE & WAR will do for married couples everywhere. John and Stasi Eldredge have contributed the quintessential works on Christian spirituality through the experience of men and the experience of women and now they turn their focus to the incredible dynamic between those two forces.

With refreshing openness that will grab readers from the first page, the Eldredges candidly discuss their own marriage and the insights they’ve gained from the challenges they faced. Each talks independently to the reader about what they’ve learned, giving their guidance personal immediacy and a balance between the male and female perspectives that has been absent from all previous books on this topic.   They begin LOVE & WAR with an obvious but necessary acknowledgement:  Marriage is fabulously hard.  They advise that the sooner we get the shame and confusion off our backs, the sooner we'll find our way through.

LOVE & WAR shows couples how to fight for their love and happiness, calling men and women to step into the great adventure God has waiting for them together. Walking alongside John and Stasi Eldredge, every couple can discover how their individual journeys are growing into a story of meaning much greater than anything they could do or be on their own.

Cathy,

Thank you for this review. I've read and led a Bible Study using Staci's book "Captivating" and it was wonderful. My husband has read John's books and been blessed as well.

Look forward to this new book of theirs!

Oh, I'm following your blog now and look forward to stopping by from time to time!!

Sweet Blessings!
Jackie

Hey Cathy! Sorry it's been a while since I commented. I'm not good at managing my time, and I got side-tracked. That book sounds like it would be a good one. I read the comment from the other lady about the book Captivating (about her doing a Bible study, and that's got my curiosity up also.

Love ya bunches!

I've heard great things about these two but haven't really taken the time to do more than this...if that makes sense. Toooooo many great things out there to study and learn!
