      I loved this book A super easy read that made me realize how good my relationship with my fiance already is Possibly, because of us meeting later in life, or because we appreciate and respect each other so much Either way, this is a good one to keep on the shelf for reference and to share with your significant other.

      My excuse for reading this book is that the Verizon store is right next to a Christian bookstore, and it took Scott two hours to decide which Blackberry he wanted to purchase I was already halfway through with it by then and wanted to see how it ended That said, it wasn t as bad as I thought There is a lot of proselytizing in the second half as the main character finds God, but he seriously needed to find God The main character, Caleb, is this firefighter who is a complete bastard to his wife un [...]

      I watched and enjoyed the movie Fireproof at some point in the last year or two My sister in law loaned me the novelization of the movie Sometimes novelizations of movies are miss than hit, but this novelization was definitely a winner.Caleb Holt is a fireman and is captain of his team While he is a fantastic firefighter and leader, his life at home is falling apart Caleb and his wife Catherine do nothing but fight or avoid each other It has gotten to the brink of divorce Caleb s father challen [...]

    10. Debbie on said:

      This book is a Christian Romance novel, though it s not typical of the category The romance is portrayed accurate to real life and is mainly from the male point of view I think men would find the book as interesting as women would.The book isn t terribly preachy and is a this character happens to become a Christian than a listen up, readers if you aren t Christian, you ought to be and here s how Unless you are vehemently anti Christian, the Christian content probably won t annoy you.Because the [...]

      This was hard for me to rate I gave it three stars because the story is awesome but it is a novelization of a movie Unlike most book movies, the movie was done first That being said the story is awesome It is a story about a marriage in which the couple had become strangers in the same house Really hit home for me Like the couple in the book I was married seven years and things got tough Caleb listens to his Dad and accepts the Love Dare in which he does various things to give sacrifical love to [...]

      This book was absolutely amazing It was well written, the characters were relatable, and it really made you feel a part of the book I felt angry, sad, frustrated, happy throughout this whole book with the characters Being Christian, I especially loved the touch of faith brought into the story It wasn t overwhelming, yet at the same time, it was the foundation of the entire story It was real it was beautiful It s hard for a book to make me tear up, but this one did it Highly recommend, especially [...]

      Several people recommended the movie to me but the book was at the library so I picked it up It was ok nothing hard to read It was thought provoking as the husband began to take the love dare and do things for his wife to demonstrate his committment to their marriage and her friends at work caused her to question his motives A reminder that sometimes our friends don t give us godly advice and to always compare the advice people give us to what the Bible says.Fireproof

    14. Wendy on said:

      I thought this was just a novel about a firefighter when I picked it up, and only as I got well into it did I realize it s actually Christian fiction, which I normally avoid like the plague The book was indeed a story of a top flight firefighter, having trouble in his marriage, and the challenge his father sets to him to try to sort things out before he pulls the plug and files for divorce While the Love Dare is based in Christian theology, the message it sends, about how to really take care of [...]

    15. Karen on said:

      I read this book for my women s bible study The book was written AFTER the movie Fireproof was a success I never heard of it before, but I guess it s sort of a cult classic with the church groups I didn t think it was well written, and the background of the characters wasn t developed at all in my opinion, and I know from others who have seen the movie I haven t that the emotion from the characters was much evident in the movie than the book The story and message is good A firefighter named Cal [...]

    16. Susan on said:

      I found out after I started reading this book that it was written after the screenplay for the movie, rather than before The book does kind of read like a movie It doesn t have the deepest dialogue and the characters are not as fleshed out as they normally are in books I read Normally I don t even enjoy Christian fiction that much because they just seem a little light and don t ring quite true for me On that note I would have given this book, which was a really quick read, only three stars The r [...]

    17. Gabrielle Bernard on said:

      Fireproof is a strong work of God Christianity works through every sentence and leeks through every page A love story with some comedy, that also has a religious message that does not over power the book Proven stronly the message is shared in a most heart touching way For me this book earned a 5 out of 5 stars The text is not heard to read and you stay sucked into the book It is possible that this book will change the way we look at marraige these days It is not a gender bias through all of Cal [...]

    18. Jerry on said:

      A Quickie ReviewMost people say that the book is always better than the movie, but I m not sure in this case Though there are some great extra details, including how Caleb and Catherine ended up married in the first place, one plot thread not seen in the film messed things up SPOILER WARNING Catherine s mom goes on a special version of Wheel of Fortune and wins a boat for Caleb, which didn t sit well with me Too many times, I see stories where a hero gives up something only to get immediately re [...]

    19. Lisa Belcastro on said:

      I absolutely LOVED Fireproof I have watched the movie Fireproof a half dozen times It was a treat to read the book and delve deeper into the story behind Caleb and Catherine The creation of The Love Dare, and reading about how these two characters lived it out, was fantastic I mourned the breakdown of their marriage, and then cheered as Caleb made the commitment to do the Love Dare Even though I knew the outcome from watching the movie, I was completely drawn into the story as I read about their [...]

      Caleb and Catherine are having serious marriage problems Catherine wants out and Caleb isn t sure he wants to fight for it A conversation with his father puts The Love Dare into Caleb s hands It isn t easy for him but he wants to give it a try He struggles to figure out what he wants and whether giving his life to Christ is really the answer to save his marriage.I loved this story The book of course has than the movie but both are great and have a wonderful message I wonder what the world would [...]

    21. Brent Strandy on said:

      When rating this book I m not comparing it to other novels I ve read I found other novels to have much better stories and yet I gave them lower scores I give Fireproof a 7 10 because of the message it delivers Usually Christian novels are extremely phony and lack any semblance to our current culture This book does a fantastic job illustrating marriage albeit a nasty side of marriage It shows how a broken marriage reacts to the Love Dare I appreciated how real the book felt It wasn t a become Chr [...]

    22. Angie Rowan on said:

      Fireproof is a story that I believe every person can relate to It touches on relationships good bad, romantic friendship as well as just being a better YOU A quick read but part of that was the flow of the story as well as wanting to know the outcome.

    23. Cassandra Cox on said:

      This book was a very fast read It was so hard to put down I love the drama packed within it This fire fighter and public relations manager showed what true dedication, love and commitment, along with Christ can do.

    24. Kimberly on said:

      Very touching story Quick read for me because I couldn t seem to put the novel down Very enjoyable One that I will save and read again.

    26. Cassie on said:

      I haven t really read a book like this before but I found that I loved it I was so emotional through the whole read and now I want to do the love dare

    27. Sarai on said:

      I was surprised by this book I really wasn t expecting to like it after all the couple in the first part reminded me a bit too much of my previous marriage I also expected by the end to be wishing that my husband had taken the steps here That being said by the end I was happy for the couple I was happy for each of their personal growths I really enjoyed reading this It shed some light on what my ex might have been thinking and what I can do differently next time around REVIEW THOUGHTS OPINION I [...]

      Note There are some references to key plot points in this review I don t consider them to be spoilers per se not enough to check the contains spoilers box but it should be noted that you might have a hint at what happens if you pay close attention to my writing below.Fireproof was an engrossing, captivating book until I hit the second half, which proselytizes Jesus up the wazoo After it started proselytizing, the story became merely interesting It fell into predictability at some points, I thoug [...]

    30. Christina on said:

      Every marriage goes through some tough times In this day and age, most of us accept divorce as acceptable and sometimes expected in a marriage It is refreshing to read a story that is based on renewing a couple s love for each other and showing the blessings you can reap from forgiveness rather than the continuing hurt of divorce.This story is realistic I felt like I was reading about an actual couple who had gone through feelings of separation and written a story about it They have been married [...]
