READ IT TWICE - YOU WON'T REGRET IT
Reviewed in the United States on April 23, 2018
Review comes from a busy family with many small kids. We wouldn't write a review unless it's really worth it.
First, few quick thoughts.
1) I suggest you read the book twice, as I did. Then buy a few for friends ask them to do the same.
2) The content will light a fire under you to pursue your spouse more intentionally, and show you where you are not.
3) It will challenge you to walk deeper with God the way a mirror shows you what you really look like underneath.
4) You can't read a book with the word "Fierce" in the title and not expect it to call you out or step on your toes. Be warned!
Rick and Selena Frederick pretty much put their hearts on a platter as they share their lives through a love relationship. The theme of God's Covenant (which is refreshingly counter-cultural to a dead religious society) runs through every page beginning with their own marriage story and how they actually work out this relationship in their daily lives in money, sex, conflict, and future. Both their aggressive nature and their kind spirit show in the writing.
This book is chalked full of real world, biblical, unchanging wisdom from God's word and the voice of two authentic and transparent people. In fact, a part of Chapter 9 is titled "Fight Naked." Go read it yourself. It's hilarious! The truth is every bit of Rick and Selena Frederick's book is about being emotionally and spiritually transparent with a covenant keeping God in Christ Jesus. I personally liked Chapter 4: "Gritty Love" the most. Many fierce quotes from a couple who are not asking for permission to be themselves or to have a strong marriage. I personally hope they write another book in the future about family and legacy!
Lastly, I want to say this book won't just hand you vision and purpose for your own marriage. Instead, they point you to a relationship with the person of Christ Jesus and you have to go ask Him yourself. They will show you what happens when a marriage is purposefully walking out who they are simply meant to be in a world that is looking for real hope!
