Love & War by John and Stasi Eldredge

Hi Friends,

I've got a great new marriage book to tell you about today - just in time for Valentine's day! I haven't had a chance to read all the way through it yet because I've been keeping up with my homework for the Dynamic Marriage class that Bryan and I have been taking at church on Monday nights (it's going great). But I'm really looking forward to digging in to this new book soon. It looks to be really helpful. Anyway, here's the info in case you want to check it out for yourself. (In fact, if you're married, I suggest making a Valentine's commitment to your spouse to read one marriage book every couple months together for the year - wouldn't that be a great way to invest in your marriage?!). Now, to the info:

Book: Love and War
Author: John and Stasi Eldredge

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.
