Publisher's Summary

Marriage is great, but it's not forever. It's until death do us part.

Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives. In his latest book, Francis Chan joins together with his wife Lisa to address the question many couples wonder at the altar: "How do I have a healthy marriage?" Setting aside typical topics on marriage, Francis and Lisa dive into Scripture to understand what it means to have a relationship that satisfies the deepest parts of our souls. In the same way Crazy Love changed the way we saw our personal relationship with God, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will radically shift the way we see one of the most important relationships in our life. Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage.

Whether you are single, dating or married, You and Me Forever will help you discover the adventure that you were made for and learn how to thrive in it. 100% of the net profits from You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will go towards providing food, shelter and rehabilitation for thousands of orphaned children and exploited women in partnership with global charities.

Only if you are ready to die to self...

This book was a struggle to listen to, not because of the material and how it is presented, but because I know it is the truth. The 1st chapter scared me, so I had to set it aside a day or 2 and pray and ask God to prepare me for its content and help me to apply His truth to my life. I hope my spouse is as driven or more driven than I would like to be, but if he is not, it does not relieve me of my responsibility...for I will answer to God for myself. I believe this book shares God's heart for marriage and family. As Christians, we need to quit playing and get busy with God's business! Thank You Francis and Lisa

A must read for everyone!

Regardless of marital status this book will give you the best picture of a biblically focused marriage that is rare in the Christian Church today.

Life changing and inspiring

This is not your traditional marriage book. There are no checklists and formulas but one clear, strong message about the gospel. That being said, it's the best marriage advice I've read in 15 years.

This is also not just for married people. The majority of the content is applicable regardless of marital status.

The fact that it's narrated by the authors makes it like listening to a podcast. Much better than other audibles I've purchased in this regard.

Highly recommend for those who are ready to be inspired and challenged (but I did also go buy a hard copy because I wanted to really underline, asterisk and mark this up!)

Amazing

I'm a single Christ-follower. This book encourages me all the more to focus on the mission Lord Jesus has given: to make disciples. And to live in radical faith, radical obedience and radical love to God.. It also convinces me even further to remain single unless I meet someone who shares the same love and passion I have for God, for people and for His mission. One who'd help me be more effective in my mission.

Confusing

It has little practical advice. There is emphasis on the fact that marriage is important but not that important very conflicting message. Our marriage is to be a reflection of God's love, many of the positive aspects of marriage were downplayed. He uses lots of scripture, which is great, but good interpretation is lacking and many times he contradicted himself.
Author presents as self righteousness in book with lots of legalistic views. Very harsh rhetoric around how you should feel and respond, that doesn't fit with the Bible's message of compassion and grace.
The condescending tone in the book was very disappointing and confusing. I really wanted to get something out of it but was left mostly conflicted, confused, and condemned.

Okay

It seems like personal narrative from a young family with a limited perspective on real life. As a mother to six grown children and grandmother to four, I can say there are a lot of incredible principles here that should be heard and followed. However, there are several indicators that the Chans hadn’t really experienced a lot of issues that might make them a bit more merciful to those in circumstances that differ from their own (which is the majority of us).

Awesome book!

This book points you back to Christ and his goodness and faithfulness. It is a convicting read, but well-written with love and gentleness in mind. It definitely got the wheels in my head turning, but leaves me wanting to more like Christ. I would recommend this book to others!

The best

This Jesus first approach is the best book on marriage, relationship and life I have found. The key is Jesus.

In light of eternity...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were many moments in which I felt "called out" on thoughts and beliefs I have held without even realizing it. I would totally recommend this book and look forward to sharing it with whoever will listen. Get this book! My husband and I are excited to hear the Chans at a local church's marriage conference coming up this week. Can't wait!

You can hear the passion Francis and Lisa have in this book.

I am a 30yr old male, currently in a relationship and this book has encouraged me and helped me push forward into the role of becoming a Christ like husband. I'd thoroughly recommend this book to all Christians dating and those married if all ages. Even more so those who have been married a long time and maybe feel their Christian walk has become stale

Seek first the kingdom

Just incredible. The perspective given in this book really have you reflecting on your marriage. It is more God focused than other marriage books which is great as it therefore offers something different. It is a heavy book and I feel it is something to come back to a few times and each time you will take more away from it. Highly recommend.

soothing to the ear =

Had very good start but as I got toward the end of the book, I felt it became a bit repetitive. I don't know if I found it that way because I don't have child, I am not sure. But over all I thought it was a great book with a great message behind it and his voice is so soothing to the ear :)

Not only great for couples but a fantastic reminder for all people to put God first as he is the only one who can meet out needs and fill our hearts!
