In "Love and War Devotional for Couples" John and Stasi Eldredge take an honest look at marriage for what it is. Often devotional books tend to focus on growth and spiritually deepening a relationship. This book is written for those who are struggling with the reality of making the two become one. They take an honest approach and are up front about the fact that marriage can be difficult and cause unhappiness. They acknowledge the reality of conflict, struggle and pain as a part of God's plan for helping us to become what he has created us to be. The authors self disclose some of their own experiences with the difficulties of marriage but also share the blessings of patience and hard work. I found this to be a good devotional guide especially for couples who are going through that "working phase" of marriage and may feel they are the only ones experiencing the struggle. I used the book for a Marriage Mentoring program, taking quotes from the book for challenging discussion starters. I really like the fact that the chapters are short but packed with challenging discussion oriented content. Each chapter closes with a prayer and a scripture for consideration. I know it will be a blessing to many.
