Publisher's Summary

Gary Thomas believes couples often settle for too little when it comes to marriage. We fail to understand how deeply God cares about our spouse. We diminish our need to not only understand what biblical love really is, but also to become a people who excel at it. We let ourselves drift apart instead of making the daily choices to grow closer together. Whether your marriage needs a complete makeover, a touch up, or just a new purpose, A Lifelong Love promises to set your relationship on an entirely new dimension. You will never look at worship or your spouse in the same way again. You will understand how living for that day will so radically transform the decisions you make this day. And Gary will guide you through the power shifts and seasonal mine fields that blow up so many marriages so that you can grow in your love instead of in your disappointment. Thirty years of study and two decades of working with couples has led Gary Thomas to his most significant book yet on the relationship between husband and wife. Find out for yourself what all the fuss is about - and why A Lifelong Love is sure to challenge the way the church talks about marriage.

Must read for those married or ever considering marriage

I was amazed at how mind changing this book was. I've been struggling in my marriage due to "issues" my husband and I have had. And while there are some serious issues to be resolved, this book revolutionized my mind and therefore my marriage.
It's tough, but necessary! I recommend it to anyone who is married or ever even considering marriage!

The best book on marriage

This is the best book I have ever read about marriage. Gary helps me to see marriage the way that God views marriage. It includes life-changing concepts with practical application.

Intentional healing for us

My wife and I have been on our journey for 14yrs and are not without our glaring difficulties at various times. This book came to us through our “Weekend to Remember” and up until the past 2 months it did not see too much attention. This book has allowed us to help see each other in a different perspective and as a result have started treating each other as Gods “son and daughter in law” to quote the book. Our journey is far from complete but we would be remiss if we did not share the impact hearing the word of God, through various scripture, in this book. Well done and we look forward to our continued journey “together!”

Must read for every married couple.

Such wisdom. Reading it again with my wife as a study together. Great for a couple that's been married 3 years or 37 years like us.

It's so enlightening

It has changed my views on marriage and what true love is. Great book. Listened to the entire book on a road trip to my mom's. I needed this, my marriage needed this. Narrative is calming.

Absolutely perfect

I never review anything, but this deserves it. If you are married and want more out of it, read this book. God has so much more in mind for you and your spouse. Gary gives very practical advice while also lifting your heart to higher motivations. Take the time to go through this.
Then go through it again with your spouse.
Blessings to you

Excellent book! All married couples should read!!

Actually started listening to the audio book again! Exceptional book. I immediately started putting the suggestions into practice and if it's making an immediate difference. Married? Get this book. Read it, but most importantly, put it into practice.
