Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
D and I have been married for 13 years now. We have been a couple for over 20 years…that is half of my lifetime, which is strange to think about. Over the years, we have learned a lot about each other. Yet, conflicts still arise and we still need God’s grace in our lives and relationship with each other everyday.
In the newly published book, Enter The Ring, D.A. & Elicia Horton, a husband and wife, write about how it is important to fight together for a “gospel-saturated marriage”. D.A. Horton serves as a Pastor at Reach Fellowship, a church plant in North Long Beach. I like how the Hortons are remarkably candid in sharing their relationship struggles, both past and present. They do not claim to have the perfect marriage, but God’s work in their lives is plainly evident. The book alternates between D.A. and Elicia’s voices, so the reader receives both a husband and a wife’s perspective. Enter the Ring addresses practical topics such as communication, finances, and home life, all in a Biblical context with plenty of verses to back up their advice. I would recommend this book to any couple, whether newly engaged or married for fifty years. We all need to fight for our marriages in a world that is so eager to tell us it is easier to just give up.
