COUPLES AWAIT NEW LOVE DARE DAY BY DAY
Dec. 1 Street Date: Follow-Up to National Bestseller
Tuesday, Dec. 1—only 14 months since a soft-back book called The Love Dare debuted with the hit movie FIREPROOF and climbed to no. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list—coauthors Stephen and Alex Kendrick release its follow-up: The Love Dare Day by Day: A Year of Devotions for Couples in hardback. (In one year, The Love Dare sold more than 3 million DVDs in 23 languages.)
From the movie FIREPROOF, The Love Dare is a 40-day challenge to learn and practice unconditional love. For millions of spouses and couples, positive change in 40 days left them wanting more. Going deeper and more surely into biblical love, the Kendrick brothers expanded The Dare into 52 weekly challenges in 365 daily devotionals. (Days are not calendar specific; readers may begin any time.)
In the original book, The Love Dare, 40 daily challenges are explained in two to four pages each. The Love Dare Day by Day is a page a day for users now familiar with The Love Dare concept. Each day has that week’s theme, a verse, a devotion, and a closing prayer. And as happy users of The Love Dare know, consistency and commitment pay off.
The Kendrick brothers, associate pastors at Sherwood Church under Sr. Pastor Michael Catt and Exec. Pastor Jim McBride, advanced the church’s mission to “reach the world from Albany, Georgia.” In 2003, the four men formed Sherwood Pictures and released award-winning FLYWHEEL. In 2006, FACING THE GIANTS played in some 1,000 theaters and grossed $10 million; DVDs showed in 14 languages in 56 countries. FIREPROOF was the no. 1 independent film of 2008. Sherwood’s next film, COURAGEOUS, is slated for release in 2011. All films have almost all-volunteer casts and crews.
The Love Dare Day by Day is available everywhere books are sold.
