Love and War: Finding the Marriage You've Dreamed Of is written by a couple who have been there, done that. John & Stasi Eldredge are a married Christian couple who openly discuss their own relationship and acknowledge something that many people don't want to talk about: marriage is sometimes hard. I appreciated the fact that they start with that basic truth, rather than painting a picture of some perfect relationship straight out of a romance novel. They don't offer any magic formulas or ten-step outlines to obtain the "perfect" marriage.... instead, they offer the truth about what it takes to keep two imperfect people together in the bond of marriage.
From the publisher:
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.This was book was provided for my honest review by WaterBrook Multnomah.
