Fireproof Opens Tonight
The creators of Facing the Giants release a new movie tonight: Fireproof. The film follows a young couple Caleb and Catherine, on the brink of divorce. Here is a brief synopsis from the film’s website:
As the couple prepares to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb’s father challenges his son 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. When Caleb discovers the book’s daily challenges are tied into his parents’ newfound faith, his already limited interest is further dampened.
While trying to stay true to his promise, Caleb becomes frustrated time and again. He finally asks his father, “How am I supposed to show love to somebody who constantly rejects me?”
When his father explains that this is the love Christ shows to us, Caleb makes a life-changing commitment to love God. And with God’s help he begins to understand what it means to truly love his wife.
But is it too late to fireproof his marriage? His job is to rescue others. Now Caleb Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever…rescuing his wife’s heart.
I had the chance to see an advanced screening of the movie and highly recommend it. Of course, one of the issues pushing the couple apart has to do with money. Once you see the movie you may want to check out some of the resources offered in conjunction with the film’s message.
