The #1 New York Times best seller. More than 5 million units sold.
The Love Dare, as featured in the popular new movie Fireproof (from the makers of Facing the Giants), is a 40-day challenge for husbands and wives to understand and practice unconditional love. Whether your marriage is hanging by a thread or healthy and strong, The Love Dare is a journey you need to take. Its time to learn the keys to finding true intimacy and developing a dynamic marriage. Take the dare!
Alex Kendrick, co-writer and director, does a great job constructing a believable and riveting transformation of Caleb Holt. This is a vast improvement over the story-telling in Kendrick's very successful Facing the Giants. Cameron gives a truly great performance in the role of Caleb Holt. This is quite a departure in tone for Cameron who will forever be remembered for his "iconic" comedic role as Mike Seaver in TV's "Growing Pains."
The rest of the cast - primarily made up of Sherwood Baptist Church's drama team where both Kendrick brothers serve as pastors - give pedestrian but not horrific performances. Erin Bethea rises above the amateurish cast as Caleb's wife, Catherine.
This movie is a great ministry tool as a discussion starter for couples. I was even impressed by the Gospel presentation in the movie - very biblical, yet not trite. Finally a Christian movie that Christian's can recommend without embarrassment...and a Christian movie that has nothing to do with life on the prairie or the end times. Its phenomenal success, especially for an independent film, is a testimony to its broad appeal.
The book itself comes in a nice leather-bound version with places to write thoughts after each days challenge. The overall content is good and features appropriate selected Scriptures on what it means to show love. However, I do have a concern that some may view the 40 day nature of the book as a quick fix to all marital problems. The Love Dare sure can help, but these are life-long principles that need to be demonstrated till death, not just for 40 days. Im sure the authors would agree. Todd Burgett, ChristianBookPreviews.com
After a decade of marriage, Caleb (Cameron) and Catherine Holt (Catt) have drifted so far apart that they are ready to move on without each other. Yet as they prepare to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb's parents ask their son to try an experiment: The Love Dare.
While hoping The Love Dare has nothing to do with his parents' newfound faith, Caleb commits to the challenge. But can he attempt to love his wife while avoiding God's love for him? Will he be able to demonstrate love over and over again to a person that's no longer receptive to his love? Or is this just another marriage destined to go up in smoke?
