The Christian Post reported that the Love Dare has topped the New York Times Bestseller List. It’s such a great story. Here are a couple excerpts.
Originally a plot device in the faith-based independent film “Fireproof,” The Love Dare has reached 2.2 million copies in print and played a major role in the renewal and salvation of marriages far and wide…
…Pre-screenings for “Fireproof” left audiences asking how they could get the book.
In response, brothers and associate pastors Alex and Stephen Kendrick, who together directed and produced “Fireproof,” respectively, made the effort to get it out. “We shut out the world and wrote for several weeks,” recalled Stephen Kendrick. “We weren’t expecting such demand so early.”
Here at Family Christian Movies, we’ve been surprised by the demand too. We added this to our inventory as an add-on, expecting to sell 50 or so alongside Fireproof. It’s been more like 10 times that in less than a month, we’ve had a terrible time keeping it in stock. You can buy your own copy here; the Love Dare.
I’ve been so amazed to see the success of both The Love Dare and The Shack (another book never intended for the mass market.) It’s amazing what God can do with projects like these when normal people follow the promptings of an awesome God.
