Product Description

A relationship founded on our culture's toxic marriage myths will inevitably result in disaster. Looking instead to God's design for love - while learning from their own mistakes - the Bethkes explode fictions about romance, including the belief that everybody has one "soul mate," that marriage will complete you, or that pornography and casual sex are basically harmless.

Publisher's Description

In Love That Lasts, New York Times bestselling author of Jesus > Religion 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 readers an inspiring, realistic vision of love, dating, marriage, and sex.

Young people today enter adulthood with expectations of blissful dating followed by a romantic, fulfilling marriage 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 past, 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, or that pornography and hook-ups are harmless.

    Loved, loved, loved this book! Jeff and Alyssa have such a sense of realness in their writing that makes reading about such delicate topics, a total breeze. This book has so much to offer for any reader, reguardless of your relationship status. I wish I could have read this as a single woman years ago, but am extremely thankful (as is my husband!!) that I have been able to apply it to my marriage now.

    I received an advanced reader copy from the publisher.

    This book was so amazing! From the start, the first chapter had me in tears because of how raw and real Jeff and Alyssa are. It takes a lot of courage to be transparent about sex and marriage and they did a great job. It is so refreshing to hear a millennial's take on the subject. They actually can relate with people comparing themselves on Instagram, and other issues social media can bring into a relationship. I love how they bring everything back to Jesus and they do a great job at giving Him all the glory. This is not just a book it's a handbook for young adults. It is so encouraging. I am recently married and every page of this book seemed to open my heart more towards God and my husband.

    I received an Advanced Copy from the Publisher.

    I was blessed to receive an Advance Reader Copy. This book is so raw and honest. Jeff and Alyssa open up about their struggles and give Godly advice. My favorite part of the book is that they do not only focus on being married. They show how you can glorify God in every season of your life regardless of your relationship status. Whether you are single, dating, married, or divorced, this book is a must read!

    I have a lot of relationship and love wounds and I admit, I was a little afraid to read this book. When I got my advance copy from the publisher, I actually postponed digging into it, as I realized more and more that I clearly have some healing to do and is now the time for me to do that? And then, I ripped off the bandaid.

    I will be reading this again and suggesting it to possibly everyone I meet. It is an excellent book for everyone...not just the newly wed. As I read, I kept thinking, "Oh, I wish I had read this as a highschooler." This book would have been the perfect preventative medicine for me.

    Alyssa and Jefferson alternate writing chapters and this tactic is just perfect. With their bold honesty, you feel like you are getting insight to ALL sides of the story. It is wonderful. All of it will speak to you in a time of your life. You will learn something about yourself and how to move forward from where you are. I feel, more than anything, this book helped me open my eyes a little more and allowed me to start looking at some things differently, so that...maybe I am capable of considering a future relationship, should an opportunity arise. And this change of heart is really close to miraculous.

    Bottom line? If you love growing yourself, buy it. If you have been hurt, or feel too dirty, or ashamed, or too good, or misunderstood, or lost, or confused, or perfectly fine...buy the book, read it, underline stuff. AND...please, please, buy copies, many extra copies, to hand out to the young people in your life, to a couple you know, to that friend of yours that just doesn't understand why this keeps happening to her/him. This book should be read and shared and spread. And just have so much fun!

    This is a book that I will read numerous times. This book is something that everyone can read. It doesnt matter if you are single, dating, engaged, or married. I was able to relate to so much in this book. Both Jeff and Alyssa put their most vulnerable parts of their life in here.

    I received an advance copy of this book. I feel so blessed I did.
