"Love & War" Book Review

(Finding the marriage you dreamed of)
John & Stasi Eldredge


Knowing what books John & Stasi have previously written I was curious to see what they could accomplish when they combined their writing efforts. Wow... good stuff. John & Stasi have made themselves totally transparent to their readers as they open up to what makes a good marriage and the obstacles we run into on a daily basis. I love how they compare marriage between a man and a woman to God's relationship with us. This is an amazing book that will change the way you look at your marriage and at your spouse!

This was book was provided for review by WaterBrook Multnomah.


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.
