Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

With refreshing openness that will grab you from the first page of the Love& War Participant's Guide---designed to help you and your small group fully engage in the topics discussed in the Love& War eight-session DVD group video study---bestselling authors John and Stasi Eldredge candidly discuss their own marriage and the insights they've gained from the challenges they've faced. Each talks independently to the reader about what they've learned, giving their guidance a personal immediacy and balance between the male and female perspectives that has been absent from all previous books on this topic. The Eldredges acknowledge that Marriage is fabulously hard, but they advise you that the sooner you get the shame and confusion of the fabled fairytale marriage off your back, the sooner you'll find your way to the real love and happiness you deserve. The Love& War DVD and Participant's Guide show 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.

This is an excellent book. I recommend it to every married couple I talk to. It just makes so much sense as to why we fight and where each of us is coming from. In my opinion, this book SHOULD be a pre-requisit for newly weds or those in pre-marital counseling. However, my husband and I have been married for 15 years and it is still very useful for us.

This is awesome!!! Every couple should read this - actually it should be required reading BEFORE you get married too! Because often the hurts start at the very beginning, taking everyone off guard. People don't talk about how hard marriage is. I have several friends who have succumbed to the downward spiral of shame and disillusionment and disappointment that resulted in divorce.

My husband and I have found this book so freeing, which has made our marriage rebound for the better. It helps to relieve the pressure we put on ourselves and each other. It's comforting to know that we are not alone in our problems. We were in the midst of some difficult times in our marriage and this has helped to revive our marriage and our connection with each other.

We're doing this study with 5 other couples. I will be buying this for several other couples I know!

John and Stasi are for real! They tell it like it is and they are spot on with the reality of marriage. I have been married to my husband almost 38 years now and I can tell you they know what they are talking about. This is probably the best book I have read on marriage to date - and I have read ALOT.

Per Amazon: A Realistic Guide to the Marriage You've Always Dreamed Of

Is your relationship with your spouse far from the union you'd hoped it would be? John and Stasi Eldredge know about the realities of marriage--and they know why it's so important to take hold of the dreams you once had and see God fulfill them.

In this eight-week devotional, John and Stasi will guide you and your spouse to see God's heart for your marriage more clearly. This life-changing guide includes new insights, encouraging Scriptures, and practical exercises that will help you develop a personal plan for a vibrant marriage.

As John and Stasi write, "We learn to love moment by moment. Day by day. Week by week. Our marriages grow and become what God intended and what we ultimately long for in the same way. We are, all of us, learning to love."

I received this book in the mail just a few days ago, I admit,when I first opened it I was a bit excited but also a bit on edge, I wasn't sure what Mike would think, but much to my surprise he eagerly reads a devotion a day and we sit and discuss it. His words are that he loves these studies, so far, each day that we have completed he commented that he really enjoyed "that day".

So how is each day laid out? Well the beginning of each devotion begins with a short bible verse and is followed by a devotion, a prayer and another bible verse.

We are both really enjoying this time with the Lord and this time with each other. I'd highly recommend it.

Let's be honest, marriage is difficult at times. Early in our Christian walk together my wife and I were blessed to have friends strong in faith that suggested praying and doing devotionals together. We started with an excellent couples devotional truly inspired and inspiring. However, we soon discovered that book was a minority among couples devotionals. The others we came across were just... ok, and nothing like the first one, until now. "Love & War" by John and Stasi Eldredge has ranked up there with us.

The Eldredge's have compiled a devotional for couples that is not only inspiring and thought provoking but challenging and confirming. Aptly named "Love & War", this book captures many of the struggles and victories that we have encountered in our 22 years and helps to reveal how God can, does and will use our differences as men and women to compliment and enhance each others lives. I often strongly urge couples to pray and study God's word together and this is a good book to help guide you through that. I do feel I have to warn you though. As with anything good in your life or marriage the enemy hates it and will throw challenges your way as you take this journey together. We take that as an indicator that we are on to something good and trust in God to protect us and guide us through it as He has done once again.

So, take the plunge and check out this book, you won't be sorry.

Series is very effective and pragmatic in addressing all the different challenges a marriage relationship faces; whether old or young. I especially like the inclusion of couples in different stages of life as topics/issues are discussed. Been successful in both large group forums and small group situations.

I love John Elderedge, but this workbook has so much review in it, it is not worth it to buy both the softcover workbook and the hardcover book. I do love the questions and reflection.
