Enter the Ring
Enter the Ring takes a fresh, powerful, vulnerable approach to marriage by framing it as the fight that it is. The world uses different assaults and tactics to distract us, tempting us to walk away, in order to destroy our marriages. But there is hope: The constant forgiveness, grace, and intervention of God can preserve and protect us from not only the world but also ourselves.
D. A. and Elicia Horton explore the tension of two people becoming one and how spouses often fight over which “one of us” they become. They unpack topics such as
Seasons of suffering
Sexual and physical intimacy
The spiritual life of the home
This book approaches the traditional topics of a marriage book with the brutal and life-giving honesty of two millennials who have fought together for their marriage. All topics are addressed through the vulnerable lens of the authors’ own struggles and mistakes.
This is a no-holds-barred, real-world . . . marriage book.
My thoughts: What I love about this book is the transparency that the Hortons give the reader, since they have been in a lot of difficult places through the years, but offer hope to those who have or are struggling. A side note, I thought it was cute that they grew up together, and enjoyed their story!
This book addresses a lot of the common problems in marriage and is a wonderful message of hope, as well as a reminder of our calling in our lives and marriages. I highly recommend it!
I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
