Enter the Ring, Book Review

Enter the Ring by D.A. & Elicia Horton

Enter the Ring takes a fresh, powerful, vulnerable approach to marriage by framing it as the fight that it is. The world uses different assaults and tactics to distract us, tempting us to walk away, in order to destroy our marriages. But there is hope: The constant forgiveness, grace, and intervention of God can preserve and protect us from not only the world but also ourselves.

D. A. and Elicia Horton explore the tension of two people becoming one and how spouses often fight over which “one of us” they become. They unpack topics such as

  • Seasons of suffering
  • Communication
  • Sexual and physical intimacy
  • The spiritual life of the home
  • Money
This book approaches the traditional topics of a marriage book with the brutal and life-giving honesty of two millennials who have fought together for their marriage. All topics are addressed through the vulnerable lens of the authors’ own struggles and mistakes.

This is a no-holds-barred, real-world . . . marriage book.

My Thoughts: While I'm sure I'm not the typical demographic for Enter the Ring, I was incredibly excited when the publisher offered it to me for review. As soon as it came in I started reading it, and had trouble putting it down! And I have to say this book isn't just for married couples. It really helps you look at things from someone else's perspective, and is so much more than just a relationship book. A great guide for both practical and spiritual issues.
