God created marriages to last. Will yours?

Closing the gap between principles and practice, Alistair Begg begins with theological foundations and then builds levels of practical application, showing how God's guidelines are for our good.

  • God's design for marriage
  • What to look for in a potential spouse
  • What marriage vows entail
  • The role of husbands, wives, and parents
  • How to cure and prevent marital decay

From the Back Cover:

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.
