Fireproof by Eric Wilson

I've heard a lot about the movie, Fireproof and even posted about it on my Actions Speak Loudest blog, but still haven't seen it for myself. When I found out that Eric Wilson wrote a book based on the screenplay I requested that my library purchase it. I just finished it today and really got a lot out of it. I believe the book would be beneficial for anyone (any age) who is married whether having difficulties or not. All marriages can improve.

Back of Book Says:

Inside burning buildings, Captain Caleb Holt lives by the firefighter's adage:


Yet at home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.

Growing up, his wife Catherine always dreamed of marrying a loving, brave firefighter . . . just like her father. Now, after seven years of marriage, she wonders when she stopped being "good enough." Countless arguments and anger have them wanting to move on to something with more sparks.

As they prepare for divorce, Caleb's father challenges him to commit to a 40-day experiment: "The Love Dare." Wondering if it's even worth the effort, Caleb agrees, for his father's sake more than for his marriage.

Surprised by what he discovers about the meaning of love, Caleb realizes that his wife and marriage are worth fighting for. His job is to rescue others. Now Captain Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever . . . rescuing his wife's heart.

I appreciate your blog too, Robin. Thanks for stopping by mine again. I loved Fireproof the movie; didn't know there was a book too. That's great!

I just got Kiss and am looking forward to reading it. I love Ted Dekker and his novels are always a treat.

Have a very happy new year!

Hi Lynetta,

I enjoy books more than movies, so I'm glad I wasn't able to see the movie before I read the book. I will see the movie the end of this month when it comes out on DVD. I'm looking forward to it and will be watching it with some people who would never pick up the book.

Happy New Year!
