On the verge of divorce, Kirk's father hands him a book called The Love Dare, and asks him to follow the instructions within it for 40 days. Kirk balks at first. He's ready for a divorce, but men cannot resisit a challenge so he accepts.
I'll tell you no more about the plot, except to say that this was a well done Christian film. If this is any indication of better-made Christian films coming down the road, I'm excited. This movie made me scream, laugh, and cry and at the end the audience was left with a powerful message.
Love is not a "feeling". It is a choice. And marriage is not a contract. It is a convenant.
And if we would put aside our selfish needs and start loving our spouse whether they deserve it or not, then we would find the happiness we are looking for in marriage.
I offer a warning about this movie, however. This is a blatant Christian film. They use the "J" word in it. And if the name of Jesus offends you in any way, you may want to avoid this film. Personally, I found it refreshing sitting in a theater in one of the most anti-Christian parts of the country and see the gospel presented on the big scream. There is hope for this country, yet.
