Inside burning buildings, Captain Caleb Holt lives by the firefighter's adage: Never leave your partner. Yet at home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules. Growing up, his wife Catherine always dreamed of marrying a loving, brave firefighter... just like her father. Now, after seven years of marriage, she wonders when she stopped being "good enough." Countless arguments and anger have them wanting to move on to something with more sparks. As they prepare for divorce, Caleb's father challenges him to commit to a 40-day experiment: "The Love Dare." Wondering if it's even worth the effort, Caleb agrees, for his father's sake more than for his marriage. Surprised by what he discovers about the meaning of love, Caleb realizes that his wife and marriage are worth fighting for. His job is to rescue others. Now Captain Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever... rescuing his wife's heart. Based on the screenplay by Alex and Stephen Kendrick, this audio version of the Fireproof novel includes subplots, characters, and back story not included in the movie.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 1/28/2014

    " I think this an excellent book for all married people to read. It is a good lesson of what is important in life and how you should treat your spouse. I love the movie, as well. The book is pretty much like the movie, but it does have a few added things in it. It is a very heartwarming story, and I love seeing the main characters fall in love all over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Hollin | 1/24/2014

    " This book helped me realize a lot of things in my own marriage that i myself needed to change. Not just big things but also the small things you don't realize till its to late that they mean just as much has the big things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bassey Eyo | 1/18/2014

    " I have counselled a lot of married people. I would really love to recommend this book and the movie to couples especially those in distress. All the man had to do to win back his wife was to love her selflessly and it proved difficult but it won her back. It is easy to want to have our own way but when there's someone else in the picture, the I will have to be given up for We. It took a marriage on the brink of divorce for caleb to learn that. I like it a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 1/14/2014

    " Fortunately I saw the movie first. Which I liked. The movie was a little choppy and cheesy, even for me. The book is the screenplay version repeat from the movie so if you've seen the movie, you've read the book. The theme about how to approach your marriage is worthwhile for everyone, though. "

    " Being a Firefighter myself is what made me want to read this but then I got to reading and this is one of the best books I have ever read and it will also make you think and make you want to take the love dare yourself "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 L Gentner | 12/20/2013

    " Gack. reads like a screenplay. contrived storylines. 2 stars because the message is good, but the "vehicle", the story is so predictable and smaltzy it pains the reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith Longley | 11/20/2012

    " I read this book before I watched the movie, and like so many others, the book was soooooo much better than the movie. They left out a lot of important subjects in the movie which I am so glad I got to read in this book. If you've seen the movie, pick up the book. You won't be disappointed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 9/27/2010

    " This book is adapted from the movie script, so if you've seen the movie then you will recognize 90% of it, however the author elaborated in areas that were very well done. Definitely worth the read if you liked/loved the movie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy | 8/16/2010

    " I enjoyed the movie version, but was disappointed with the book. I thought maybe the movie was a modified or shortened version of the book, but it is an exact script of the movie. If you saw the movie and wanna read the book-dont. "
