In a dialogue format, which highlights the candor, fun, and respect that typify their relationship, James and Betty offer down-home wisdom and no-nonsense advice on marital issues like expectations, trust, past baggage, money, conflict resolution, sex, parenting, communication, and more.  Above all they emphasize that with God at the center of marriage, all good things are possible. 
 
No matter how serious the challenges—even in the aftermath of heartbreak and betrayal, any couple can experience the fulfillment of living in love.
 
Includes reflection questions and a small group discussion guide.

Praise for Living in Love

"This is a terrific book on marriage from two people who know what they’re talking about. They have earned the right to speak, and we are blessed indeed to listen."
     —BETHMOORE, author of So Long, Insecurity: You’ve Been a Bad Friend to Us

      —JOHN and STASI ELDREDGE, authors of Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul and Love and War: Finding the Marriage You’ve Dreamed Of

"I’ve known James and Betty Robison for years, and they’re the real deal. Their book is more than the real deal. They were so vulnerable in sharing their own struggles. Anyone who has ever asked themselves "Is this marriage working? Is it worth it?" will embrace this book and will embrace James and Betty as they share from the heart God’s plan for marriage. What a great job they did on this book!"
     —DR. KEVIN LEMAN, New York Times best-selling author of Have a New Kid by Friday, Have a New Husband by Friday, and Have a New You by Friday

"James and Betty are one of the couples I love and admire most in this world. I have had the joy of sharing many meals and deep conversations with them and always come away richer and closer to Christ. In a world where relationships are crumbling at an unprecedented rate, James and Betty share what they have lived and continue to live. This wisdom is priceless!"
     —SHEILA WALSH, author and Women of Faith speaker

"James and Betty Robison do a fine job teaching together and making their book on the challenges of marriage come alive. The honesty, the transparency, and the practical biblical insights and application make this book easy to understand. It will make a great gift for anyone in a marriage or soon to be wed."
     —DR. CHARLES STANLEY, senior pastor, First Baptist Atlanta, and founder and president, In Touch Ministries

"In Living in Love, James and Betty Robison share their fifty-year endearing love story of hope, commitment, endurance, perseverance, and passion. Their marriage is a real-life example of what living out a covenant marriage looks like. Their testimony challenges us to the core, continually reminding us to press on in our marriage and never give up."
      —JEFF and CHERYL SCRUGGS, authors of I Do Again: How We Found a Second Chance at Our Marriage—and You Can Too

"I cannot think of anyone more equipped to write a book on marriage than James and Betty Robison. Along with my own parents’ marriage, theirs has made an indelible imprint on my life. As we’ve shared dinner and conversations,
I’ve been enthralled to watch their adoring smiles, caring touches, and intimate exchanges. Indeed, this is a marriage to behold. I’m so glad they’ve chosen to give insight that will help us all build solid marriages of our own. Read and be blessed."
     —PRISCILLA SHIRER, author and Bible teacher

"James and Betty are an authentic couple who have a tremendous heart for God and a great love for each other. My wife, Katie, and I can tell by being around them how much they enjoy each other’s company. The personal examples in Living in Love illustrate that they are a real couple dealing with real challenges. They let God’s light shine through their marriage and demonstrate that, with God, couples can work through anything."
      —JOSH HAMILTON, all-star outfielder of the Texas Rangers

"James and Betty Robison have provided every married couple with a solid tool to develop and maintain a marriage that will stand the test of time, trouble, trials, and tribulations. Living in Love is a must-read for couples who believe that God knew what He was doing when He created marriage and who want to see that purpose worked out in their own relationship." 
     —TONY and LOIS EVANS, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas

"As their pastor, I know that James and Betty Robison are authentic, sincere, and humble servants of the Lord, and they are most definitely and truly living in love. This book contains the keys you need for an exciting and fulfilling marriage. It has been a tremendous blessing to my wife, Debbie, and me, and I wholeheartedly recommend Living in Love for every couple."
     —ROBERT MORRIS, senior pastor, Gateway Church, Southlake, Texas

"I’ve seen the marriage of James and Betty Robison up close and personal for over thirty years. Living in Love is from their heart. They have a happy partnership, which has led to a worldwide ministry, yet they have kept their marriage centered on Christ. They have struggled with many of the same issues you and I have confronted, and in this book they share what has worked for them. I highly recommend Living in Love."
     —RUTH GRAHAM, author of Fear Not Tomorrow, God Is Already There

"This is not a book of just suggestions that might work. It is two lives joined together in love by practicing principles that will work—for any couple! Readers will be inspired by James and Betty’s journey."
     —DR. GARY SMALLEY, author of From Anger to Intimacy

"I have known James and Betty Robison for years, and I so enjoy being around them. That’s because they always treat each other with love, respect, compassion, and good humor. Their book Living in Love tells us how to do the same. They didn’t come by their great marriage automatically; they worked at it. And they learned valuable information along the way that they want to impart to others. Their personal story will touch you, and their insight will ignite you. This wellwritten book should be read by every married couple and also by anyone who hopes to be married in the future. I couldn’t put it down."
      —STORMIE OMARTIAN, author of The Power of a Praying Wife and The Power of a Praying Husband

    Living in Love by James and Betty Robinson is like sitting down for coffee with a couple that has had a tried and true marriage. It is delightful and easy to read! In a conversational style, the authors talk about the good and the bad in their marriage and give advice on how to make yours work. It would make an excellent gift for anyone that is thinking about getting married to anyone who has been married for years. It has something in it for everyone.

    The focuses of the book are on beginnings, commitment, communication, and challenges. James and Betty share how to treat and talk to one another with respect. I liked the Communication section because it touched on not only how to communicate, but how to confront one another, how and when to confess to each other, and when and who to get counsel from. In the Challenges section, they discuss money, parenting, sex, spiritual warfare, and encouragement. These are all important topics to me in my marriage and I am glad that they included them in the book.

    One of my favorite quotes was "Growth in marriage is very much like the ripening of fruit: it has to happen on the inside before it will ever be seen on the outside. Qualities like commitment, trust, and concern are all interior traits that cannot be imposed on a person or a marriage relationship. How would you force a husband or a wife to be trustworthy or caring? These types of things have to come from inside a person or a relationship before they can become the foundation for a thriving marriage."

    I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

    James and Betty have been married for nearly 50 years and say "we are more in love now than ever before". What did I like about this book? Their honesty. They don't just talk in general terms. They speak from their hearts about experiences in their own marriages. They talk about where they have been and how they have got to where they are.

    I particularly liked the section on dealing with the baggage that we bring into our marriages, how it effects our marriage and ways to help let it go. I also enjoyed the section about building up our spouses, to never betray your spouses trust. If you seek counseling, make sure you are there to get better, not to gossip and tear-down your mate.

    Also, remember that no one is perfect. Sure your mate has faults. But so do you. So remember to be forgiving and supportive.

    I enjoyed reading this book and gained some insight and encouragement that will be useful in the years to come.

    The first impression: The first impression from Living in Love comes from the two mildly aged faces smiling at you from the cover. The names of the smiling faces are obviously the names written in large print at the top of the cover, showing that this book is centered around them and their experiences. At the bottom of the cover it is emphasized that the couple also has their own TV show. At the very top of the cover is an endorsement from Beth Moore. The very first thing to be found inside the book is several pages of endorsements from a "Who's Who" of evangelical superstars.

    Content: When the reader does get to the table of contents, the impression that the book revolves around the authors is reinforced. This is their story which they are telling to try to help other couples. This story is told in a dialogue manner with clearly marked sections headed by "James" and "Betty" alternating as they give different accounts and analysis from their respective viewpoints. They are honest about their quarrels, weaknesses and struggles which give the book a fresh sincerity. For the first several sections of the book they move through the phases of their relationship, detailing the struggles and growing experiences along the way. In the final section they deal with practical topics that every couple has to face: money, parenting, sex, etc.

    Conclusion: Living in Love is a good book for couples wanting to improve their relationship. James and Betty address relational difficulties that most any couple will be able to identify with. Living in Love could also be useful for a couple in pre-marital counseling to get them thinking about some of the challenges they will be facing before they actually take place. However, this is not a book for counselors or for couples experiencing severe relational crises. There are many other works out there which would be more suited for people in these categories. In all, I would recommend Living in Love as a light, but helpful book for marriage enhancement.

    I liked this book so much I am buying many for my married friends. I am a widow, but found this book filled with wisdom and helpful lessons on communication in all relationships. Opened my mind to the truth that most of us aren't taught healthy communication skills. The results are the breakdown of loving relationships.
