Publisher's Summary

Ryan and Selena Frederick were newlyweds when they landed in Switzerland to pursue Selena's dream of training horses. Neither of them knew at the time that Ryan was living out a death sentence brought on by a worsening genetic heart defect. Soon it became clear he needed major surgery that could either save his life - or result in his death on the operating table. The young couple prepared for the worst.

When Ryan survived, they both realized that they still had a future together. But the near loss changed the way they saw all that would lie ahead. They would live and love fiercely, fighting for each other and for a Christ-centered marriage every step of the way. Fierce Marriage is their story, but more than that, it is a call for married couples to put God first in their relationship, to measure everything they do and say to each other against what Christ did for them, and to see marriage not just as a relationship they should try to keep healthy but also as one worth fighting for in every situation. With the Gospel as their foundation, Ryan and Selena offer hope and practical help for common struggles in marriage, including communication problems, sexual frustration, financial stress, family tension, screen-time disconnection, and unrealistic expectations.

Worth the read!!

I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I liked this book. It shines a light on a lot of important points and reminds the reader that marriage isn’t all about you! haha. I love how brutally honest the authors are when telling their story and I love that this book so beautifully speaks to the importance of being Christ centered not self centered and what marriage really means and how it affects everything. There were some uncomfortable moments when the spirit convicted me when reading this. But that only made me love this book that much more. We all need a little kick in the behind to humble ourselves and stop thinking of only our own needs/feelings. I give it 5 out of 5!!

Great book for strengthening your marriage

Strong foundational truths that will help strengthen your relationship.
I listen to Ryan and Selena’s Fierce Marriage podcast regularly so the narrators left a little to be desired. The reading did not convey the emotion that was behind the written word.

Biblically Accurate

Love how this book makes Christ the focal point of marriage. Ryan and Selena clearly have a great understanding of what God’s intention for marriage is. I am thankful for their insight and shared experiences, but most importantly their commitment to their relationship with God and how that pours into their relationship with each other. Many writers just focus on their experiences in marriage, however whose to say that the experience was correct in God’s design. Ryan and Selena express that the only correct way to a successful marriage (and anything in life) is to make Christ preeminent.

Great message but bad narration

The message in the book is great, however the narrators are pretty bad, especially the woman. She sounds almost robotic. I wish the Frederick’s had narrated this because they bring depth and soul to their words, like in their podcast.

Best Marriage Book

This not your typical marriage book. They don’t give you a “do this” and your marriage will be better prescription. They tell their experiences and link them with what the Bible says about marriage. This Is a great book and the narration is great as well.

Amazing!

So good! I’m awestruck! I’m also going to buy the paper edition so I can reread, underline and keep going back to reference it. Wonderful job to the Frederick’s. (Also enjoyed listening to those who narrated it.)

A great and life challenging read!!!

I absolutely love this book because it's more than just another marriage book. This book takes it a step further to the point of gospelizing your marriage. So often we just look at our marriage as a means for us to be happy, and I believe the real thing that makes us happy is when there is a missional focus to our marriage that goes beyond ourselves.

My one critique is that I wish Ryan and Selen had actually narrated this book. I follow their podcasts and know their voices, so the different couple that was narrating sounded weird. Still a great and challenging read.

A Fierce Covenant

Four chapters in so far, and I've been convicted with honoring my marriage with the covenant I vowed when we married, and going deeper into this word 'covenant'. It's been comforting also that I was reminded that it's not about me nor our marriage but it's about our Lord Jesus Christ. I am to love my husband in a manner that brings Glory to Christ. Does this way of loving bring me out of my comfort zone? Hugely I must confess, it's not easy at all! so I know the only way I can love in this way is to be in Christ fiercely daily. And I know I will inevitably fall, but God is faithful, he will stand me back up if this is my desire, which is to purposely honour my marriage and love my husband. Thank you both for your diligent works in this book, I look forward to the rest of this read. Praise Him for his amazing design of marriage and how this vitally important relationship always gravitates us back to Him.
