John & Stasi Eldredge come together to write Love & War, a biblical, honest book on marriage. This book is full of great, biblical, easy-to-read advice to any married couple who follow Christ. If you have read and enjoyed either of their best-selling book, Wild at Heart or Captivating, then you will enjoy this book too! They show couples how they can fight FOR each other rather than fight AGAINST each other...very insightful! As a couple, this is one of our favorite marriage books!
Radical by David Platt is a great book. David looks at the American Christian way of life and compares it to the truths of scripture. He examines the ways in which modern day Christianity has greatly derailed from that of earlier Christians... David does seek to make his reader feel good, but rather, he seeks to expose his readers to truth. Even when that truth is hard to hear.
This book will challenge you to your core. It will make you question what you believe, why you believe it, how you live, how you spend your free time, and on and on i could go. If you are frustrated with "American Christianity" and the scriptural contradiction therein, or if you are interested in really growing deeper in your faith - this book is for you!

Love and War is an incredible book about marriage written by John and Stasi Eldredge. One of the fundamental points this book makes is that we are in the midst of a very real war between heaven and earth, and because of that we must fight for the love within our marriage.
I can't stress enough how beautifully written and engaging of both sexes. My husband read this book aloud to each other and both equally enjoyed it. During the book, John tells a story in which he reminds Stasi during a fight that he is on her side. He is for her. Well not too long after reading this book, my husband and I got into a disagreement and he said those same words "I am on your side. I am fighting for you." It put our disagreement into a new perspective. We would both highly recommend this book to all married individuals! In fact we have already given away 2 copies! We love it and I am confident that you will too!
