Love Shack, that's where it's at!Title: “The Love Dare”

Authors: Stephen Kendrick and Alex Kendrick

Rank: 42

Blurb: “Too many marriages end when someone says ‘I’ve fallen out of love with you’ or ‘I don’t love you anymore.’ The Love Dare discusses how these statements reveal a lack of understanding about the fundamental nature of true love.”

Review: “Now the book itself also consists of a 40-day list of dares. For each day, there’s about a page and a half or so of advice, followed by a specific dare and some space for you to write down your personal reflections. Dares range from things such as practicing patience to writing out a renewal of your vows.”

I did my bit. Went to Amazon and tagged it King David.

What about when marriages end when someone says “I hate your fucking guts – die you selfish asshole!”? Maybe they need to write another book.

Dare #24: Dare your spouse to fly to Argentina to visit a “friend.”

Why is there a sticker that says “Fireproof” on the cover of the book? Are they afraid the flames of hell may strike their homes?

@SanFranLefty: I was thinking it was a warning for whichever spouse did NOT order the book.

Also, do you really want to rewrite your vows based on a dare? I can’t imagine that turning out well.

@blogenfreude: That’s two carny barkers down, one with extreme prejudice.

@blogenfreude: I’m ashamed for all of us for not getting there first.

@nojo: So it was McMahon/Fawcett/Jackson, and now Mays/Cronkite (poor guy is on his deathbed)/ and ???

@blogenfreude: Shame on me for thinking it, but Don Pardo.

@SanFranLefty: The book is adapted from the blockbuster Christian film Fireproof starring Kirk Cameron. It’s currently at 37% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Here’s a review from The Austin Chronicle that tells me everything I care to know about both Fireproof and The Love Dare.

@Dave H:
First of all, the review was written by a Christ killer.

2nd of all, it sounds like a damn 2 hour informercial for the book.

3rd of all, when has Kirk Cameron been considered an actor?

@ManchuCandidate and @Dave H: I thought Kirk Cameron had teh ghey like Doogie Howser actor.

@blogenfreude: Cronkite, ever the broadcast giant, is gonna hang on until the news cycle is ready.
