Love & War Devotional for Couples by John and Stasi Eldredge

John and Stasi Eldredge have written a companion devotional book to Love and War. This is a small hardback book that spans 8 week.

Week one is Remembering What We Wanted
Week two is The Two Shall Become One
Week three is The Journey
Week four is Companionship
Week five is Your Spouse is Not Your Enemy
Week six is The Little Foxes
Week seven is Incresasing Intimacy
Week eight is The Most Excellent Way

You don't need to have read Love & War before reading this devotional. This little book can stand on its own and should be read individually instead of together as a couple.

After each week of reading, you are giving an exercise to try. These include thinking of how God can use the differences between you and your spouse, choosing to do something that your spouse enjoys to show how selfless you can be and the cliched, "create a list".

The Eldredges talk about how God created marriage to be an example of life with Him, and the obligatory section on sex and intimacy.

But this is not so much a how-to. This devotional is meant to get couples to rethink their marriage and reunite their relationship to God. As the title assumes, your spouse is not the enemy.
