Hundreds of books about marriage fill shelves in libraries and bookstores around the world. The topic has been analyzed, scrutinized, and theorized countless times over, yet how to have a successful union somehow still seems to be elusive. But in Love That Lasts: When Marriage Meets Grace, Gary and Betsy Ricucci base their insights on the ultimate resource – God’s Word.
While most marriage books can’t wait to get into the ‘his needs/her needs’ and ‘his feelings/her feelings’ debate, the Ricuccis wisely take the time to lay down some foundational concepts that every couple needs to consider. They begin by looking at three questions: Does your marriage find its purpose primarily in God? Does your marriage find its hope in the gospel of grace? and, Does your marriage find its home in the local church? The answers to these questions will ultimately determine the success of a marriage. Whether the Ricuccis are discussing communication, sex, romance, or any other topic, those three questions are always just below the surface.
Their approach is truly collaborative. For instance, Gary may be the primary author of a chapter, but at any moment Betsy might pop in and add a timely comment or two before Gary continues. But the unique style works well and reinforces the concept of ‘becoming one.’ When appropriate, Gary takes a chapter to address the male readers, while Betsy provides a chapter covering the wife’s aspect of the topic.
Both authors do a strong job of basing their ideas on biblical principles and showing the intertwining of the husband’s and wife’s roles. The Riccucis show that if a marriage is based on Jesus Christ, it really can be a Love That Lasts. – Jeff Friend, Christian Book Previews.com
