Movie review: Fireproof

This is a movie everyone should watch if they are in a relationship.  It’s by the same producers of “Facing the Giantsand I promise you won’t be disappointed.

On IMDb “Fireproof” only gets a 5.5/10 rating but on Netflix it gets 5/5 stars. There’s no accounting for taste. Jen and I give it a solid 5/5. Ok, guys, at first you’ll think it’s a chick flick. And it does start off a little slowly but the early wait is worth it.

Watch it with someone you love is all I can say. Especially if you dare to continue loving them. There is a related resource at http://fireproofyourmarriage.com/ which is worth looking at whether your marriage is rock solid or rocky. More below. CAUTION — movie spoiler below.

These are the films done by the church that uses all volunteers other than a handful of experienced professionals at movie-making. They have another one in the works and they’re all worth owning, in my opinion.

At the “fireproof” website noted above is also a link to the Love Dare book shown in the movie. Its use is a most interesting concept that I think would go a long way toward both assisting recovery of a marriage in trouble and boosting the level of even the most solid of marriages. I may buy an extra copy to lend out … and a lot of lawyers, churches and social professionals could do the same.

The link to the book
has more information about it and the process. Here is a snippet from the site:

About The Love Dare

Too many marriages end when someone says “I’ve fallen out of love with you” or “I don’t love you anymore.” In reality, such statements reveal a lack of understanding about the fundamental nature of true love.

The Love Dare, as featured in the new movie Fireproof (starring Kirk Cameron and from the team that brought us the #1 best selling DVD Facing the Giants), is a forty-day guided devotional experience that will lead your heart back to truly loving your spouse while learning more about the design, nature, and source of true love.

Each day’s entry discusses a unique aspect of love, presents a specific “dare” to do for your spouse (some will be very easy, others very challenging), and gives you a journaling area to chart the progress that you will be making.

It’s time to learn the keys to finding true intimacy and developing a dynamic marriage. Take the dare!
