Movie: Fireproof

My wife and I were invited to see a preview of the upcoming movie: Fireproof. It is the 3rd movie written and produced by the Alex and Stephen Kendrick and Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, GA.

The Kendrick brothers also wrote, produced, and in Alex’s case, starred in the previous two movies: Flywheel and Facing the Giants. Two of my favorite movies.

Caleb Holt, played by Kirk Cameron, is a firefighter who’s marriage is on the rocks. His wife Catherine, played by Erin Bethea, feels under appreciated and bitter. As divorce proceedings are started, Caleb’s dad challenges him to do the Love Dare for 40 days. It changes Caleb’s life forever.

I really enjoyed the movie and felt that it was true in its sharing the frustrations and pitfalls of a marriage in distress. True to the “Kindrick brother style”, supporting characters offer comedic relief from the more serious scenes. It all works together and I found myself liking these characters. Besides be an outreach for those in a struggling marriage, Fireproof offers sound Biblical advise to those who want to keep their marriage strong.

As Caleb states in the movie, “Never leave your partner behind.”

Fireproof is scheduled to be released on September 26, 2008 nationwide. I highly recommend seeing it.
