Archive for the “Ransomed Heart Thoughts” Category

Love and War is a new book by John and Stasi Eldredge. If you are familiar with the other books and message of Ransomed Heart you will find this material very familiar. I have been involved in one way or another with the message of Ransomed Heart for the past 7 years. I have been to Boot Camp in Colorado and have spoken several times at a local version of this same camp. I have read all of the Eldredge books so far. I have been able to bring the message home to my family and it has greatly impacted our lives. For the past several years I wished for a couples version of this message to be taught. It was a deep desire of mine because I had seen the fruit of it in my own marriage. Love and War fills this role quite nicely. There is a DVD series that follows the book and is intended for small group study but could easily be used for a weekend retreat. The content is relevant and will apply to any couple who genuinely wants to seek God in their marriage. More than that it will help couples gain insight into the battle that rages around them and that tries to cause disruptions in their union.

We are currently working through our first Love and War small group and let me tell you, it’s been quite intense. There is nothing like getting committed couples together to do something like this. It has definitely shed a light on the weak spots we all have in our marriage. More than that if offers real hope that there is healing available, deep healing that Jesus desires to bring into our marriages. First, so we can stop injuring one another and more so that we can have freedom to experience the true peace and joy that comes from a couple that has been healed in this way. I can say with confidence that Jesus is ready and willing to bring deep healing to you, your marriage, and your family. This Book and study is an avenue to explore this waterfall in the context of marriage.

The other books by John and Stasi Eldredge are all indented to lead you to a similar place. I would recommend any of them if you are looking for a deeper relationship with the one who rose from the dead. More so if you have the means attend an event, Boot Camp or Captivating. It has been reported by more than one person that it is a life changing experience. I can personally attest to that.
