The book is featured in the 2008 movie "Fireproof," one of the top-grossing independent films of 2008. The movie was produced by Sherwood Pictures and Provident Films.
"Fireproof" features a husband and wife at the brink of divorce; the fireman husband is much more committed to saving lives through his work than saving his marriage. As part of an intervention, the character's father gives him a book containing 40 daily challenges, or "love dares" – ways to show unconditional love to his wife.
"We knew we would write the book about unconditional love because we knew the need – but, boy, did we underestimate the response," said Stephen Kendrick, who co-wrote "The Love Dare" with his brother Alex. "Both the movie and the book – their messages – are much bigger than we are."
Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
