    I Love that this story was based around a man trying to save his marriage. In so many books the woman is running around trying win her man. This book made me remember that the little things count more then the big. I would recommend this story to anyone.

    My wife and I have been together for 9 1/2 years and married for 6 years 7 months. We started having minor problems that equaled an unfixable relationshiplong due to my ability to change on a simple request. November 1st it became blatently obvious that she wanted out. Recieved the book for Christmas from my Mom, we read it simultaneously in two days. The only reason it took that long was due to work schedules and I didn't want her to read past me. We both agreed it was an excellent book, only wish they had Children and all 40 days worth of the exercises Caleb used to complete his task. We still may be headed for divorce, but the book is a great read for anybody in or out of a relationship, as it may fix problems that seem small before they have a chance to destroy a marriage.

    Fireproof is about a fireman whose marriage is about to go up in smoke if he does not protect is like he would a building or person from a fire. Fireproof was interesting concept of how to protect your relationship. The concept of fireproofing your relationship is one I don't think most of us thinking about until are relationships starts to smoke. I like how each section of the books was named after things that have to deal with fire. The basis of fireproofing your relationship was based on God so this was more of a Christian fiction book. Although the book had good plot is just lacked in the characters. They were so predictable and whiny that they get on your nervous. Stronger three dimensional characters would really make this a very interesting book. I do not have a lot of desire to read any more books by Eric Wilson especially if they are written after a movie. When a book follows the movie it can't be that great. I guess it was more of how to save your marriage especially if you do not have strong relationship with the Lord Our Savior. The biggest lesson in the book is you must have a relationship with God in order to lover your spouse totally. I would recommend the Love Dare for a person struggling with marriage issues which these novel talks about and is Forty day Journey.

    This book was amazing! As soon as I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this book to any couple that are going through difficult times. The story is so breathtaking and refreshing that it would bring hope back into your relationship with your sweetheart. That is what it did for my marriage. =) I have lend my copy to my friend, and it helped her relationship too! =D I love this book because it deals with reality, but also faith and romance. This story is one-of-a-kind! Share the story with your lover. Instead having your lover read the book also, why don't you wish the movie together? They made a movie out of it because it is that so GOOD! =D

    Marriage is work, it can't be neglected or disrespected. Caleb and Catherine Holt find themselves in a marriage that neither have seemed to continue to work on. They have slowly let other things take on more importance in their lives and let their marriage fall by the wayside. When it finally hits rock bottom they are left living in the same home, but both wanting out of the marriage. On their way for divorce Caleb begins to talk with his Father and his Father asks him to do a marriage challenge, 40 days called "the love dare". If after those 40 days he still finds there is nothing left to save in his marriage, so be it. Caleb reluctantly agrees, but feels that his wife is not going to change her mind. Unbeknownst to Catherine, Caleb starts to follow a hand written journal he received from his Father. As the 40 days goes by Caleb is brought to God and finally gives himself to God. His life changes and Catherine see's these changes, but doesn't know if she can trust him or open her heart again. Slowly Caleb and Catherine find their way to God and realize what love truly is.

    I really liked this book, and so did my sister who was having trouble in her relationship when she was reading it. I don't know if it helped with her problems but it was a very good book. The religion was a big part of the book but it still may have been a bit much. However, I still enjoyed this book and the point of it.
