What makes love last a lifetime?

No one marries intending to fail. Each couple that says "I do" hopes for a long and beautiful life together. But as time passes, many drift apart, and some eventually call it quits.

But what about the ones who stay the course, who don’t just bear through marriage but actually love it? What’s their secret?

It’s simple, really: there is no secret. They follow God’s revealed design.

In Lasting Love, Alistair Begg unfolds this design. After laying theological foundations, he builds levels of application, showing how God’s blueprint makes marriages sturdy and vibrant.

Ideal for both those considering marriage and those already married, Lasting Love is a comprehensive book on the essentials of a great and godly union, such as:

  • What the Bible says about marriage vows, gender roles, and parenting
  • What to look for in a potential spouse
  • How to cure and prevent marital decay

Heed the advice of this pastor who has seen too many marriages come and go. Let yours last a lifetime.

Includes a study guide for spouse and group discussion to help you put the book’s principles to practice.

About the Author:

ALISTAIR BEGG (Trent University; London School of Theology; Westminster Seminary) was born in Scotland and spent the first 30 years of life in the United Kingdom. Since September of 1983, he has been the senior pastor at Parkside Church in suburban Cleveland, Ohio. He is the daily speaker on the national radio program Truth For Life which stems from his weekly Bible teaching at Parkside, and is the author of Made For His Pleasure, Lasting Love, and What Angels Wish They Knew. He and his wife, Susan, have three grown children.

From AudioFile:

A genial broadcast mini, Begg tones down Old Testament patriarchy (the "woman as helper" view of marriage) and offers a practical and helpful guide to making a marriage work. The words and delivery are balanced and upbeat--a step ahead of the self-righteous ideology you hear from some authors in this genre. Begg invites listeners to get back to relationship basics--in particular, mutual consideration that recognizes everyone's needs and inclinations. This audio lesson views marriage as a series of choices we make every day in big and small matters. A pleasure to hear (Begg's Scottish accent is charming), this friendly, balanced program will help tune up any long-term relationship.
