Publisher's Summary

In Love That Lasts, New York Times best-selling author Jefferson Bethke and his wife, Alyssa, expose the distorted views of love that permeate our culture and damage our hearts, minds, and souls.

Drawing from Jeff's "prodigal son" personal history and from Alyssa's "true love waits" experience, the Bethkes point to a third and better way. Blending personal storytelling with biblical teaching, they offer listeners an inspiring, realistic vision of love, dating, marriage, and sex.

Young people today enter adulthood with expectations of blissful dating followed by romantic, fulfilling marriages only to discover they've been duped. They learned about love and sexuality from social media, their friends, Disney fairy tales, pornography, or even their own rocky pasts, and they have no idea what healthy, lifelong love is supposed to be like. The results are often disastrous, with this generation becoming one of the most relationally sick, sexually addicted, and divorce-ridden in history.

Looking to God's design while drawing lessons from their own successes and failures, the Bethkes explode the fictions and falsehoods of our current moment. One by one they peel back the lies, such as the belief that every person has only one soul mate, that marriage will complete you, and that pornography and hookups are harmless.

    Excellent book! I love the way Alyssa and Jeff constantly point to Jesus! Their openness and “realness” is so refreshing! Definitely would recommend this book!

    "Finished it in 2 days!"

    What an incredible book, everything they say is so encouraging! Loved hearing their story about how they met and how the Lord worked in both of their lives. Thank you Jeff and Alyssa for the book that I really needed. 😊

    "Speechless!!"

    Almost done with first half of the book! All I can say is WOW! I work in an office that is silent most of the day unless the phone rings. I spend my time sending emails but I don't hear voices too much. This book is perfect for that time. It's like Jeff and Alyssa are sitting down with me teaching me about the Lord and how to love more without trying to be "perfect" like what society makes us want to be. I can't wait to finish this!

    "Awesome Book!"

    This is my first audible book I have finished and in just 24 hours. The narrators who are also the authors are wonderful and inviting. I am now going to read the book so I can take notes. I love their story, their advice is solid. Praying for this book to bless everyone who reads/listens.

    "Love this book!!"

    If you've read their previous books then you're going to come into this one knowing a little about their story, but don't let that stop you from opening up and digging into this book!!!! It is so good because it truly focuses on the biblical wisdom of relationships from both a man and woman perspective, not just the feel good stuff, but this is raw, honest,and open.
    This book is for Jesus but not "preachy" it is infused with Gods love and makes it a turn on for everyone to read! {Would give this book to my non Christian friends in hopes they would see Christ love through a biblical minded relationship without "throwing the Bible" at them!}
    Good read for everyone because it is complete opposite types of writing fused into one beautiful marriage of a story! Recommend if single, dating, engaged, & married! No matter what season of relationship you are in this is a great read!!!
