When Ryan and Selena Frederick were newlyweds, neither of them knew that Ryan would soon need major surgery that would either save his life or result in his death on the operating table.
Ryan survived, but the near loss changed the way they saw all that would lie ahead – they would live and love fiercely, fighting for each other every step of the way. And they would dedicate themselves to helping others do the same.
“Fierce Marriage” is a call to put Christ at the center of marriage, measuring everything couples do and say to each other against what Christ did for them.
With passionate personal stories and practical, gospel-centered advice, the Fredericks help couples engage five key areas of marriage: priorities, communication, money, sex, and conflict through rediscovering God’s design for the covenant of marriage and love.
But Fierce Marriage isn’t just about offering practical advice. It covers important foundational concepts like the gospel, covenant, and love.
“These foundational items are so misunderstood, and most people aren’t aware of their misunderstanding,” says Ryan Frederick in a press release. “We wanted to write a marriage book that was different, so readers understand the deep, beautiful, eternal gospel truth while equipping them with time-tested advice for how to apply it.”
Their hopeful approach will help couples to see marriage as not just a relationship to try to keep healthy but one worth fighting for—in every situation.
