Fighting for your Marriage

In their book, Enter the Ring: Fighting Together for a Gospel Saturated Marriage, D.A. and Erica Horton have written a very good book about marriage in which they share through their struggles in a very vulnerable and honest manner.  This is book would be great for people who are newly married; or married for under 10 years or so.

The Horton's share for their own marriage.  A marriage that has endured many difficulties, even prior to their marriage, as they almost did not get married.  They use a great deal of scripture verses to help the reader understand their intentions.

The Horton's 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
  • Communication
  • Sexual and physical intimacy
  • The spiritual life of the home
  • Money
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.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book.

I received this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
