Publishers Description
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Months, even years, before the wedding, couples start planning their special day. She finds the perfect dress; he refines the details of their honeymoon get-away. They test the caterer's delicacies and listen to endless music choices. This will be the first day of the rest of their beautiful life together. Yet even with all that planning, statistics say their marriage has only a 50 percent chance of surviving. While no one takes that blissful walk down the isle with a mapped-out plan to destroy their marriage, most of us will never take the time and effort required to preserve our marriages before they hit rock-bottom. In "Lasting Love," Alistair Begg urges all married couples and those contemplating marriage to take to heart what God has told His people about creating and preserving a fulfilling marriage. Realize that marital failure can happen to anyone - even you.
  • Listen to your spouse
  • Don't take your mate for granted
  • Be daring and imaginative in displaying your affection
  • Work hard to make your marriage a success

Let Alistair Begg teach you how to guard your marriage and stand firm against anything or anyone that would draw your attention away from your spouse. God created marriages to last. Will yours?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great truths for marriage, but lackluster!  Oct 6, 2002
I looked forward to reading "Lasting Love." I had hoped to find the book to be as good as Alistair Begg's sermons. He comes across wonderfully when speaking, but this book seemed lackluster to me.

Begg tackles the subject of marriage from the Bible, and rightly so, for God designed marriage. I believe he has written about marriage with biblical accuracy. Begg draws his examples from more than 20 years of counseling couples as a pastor. And, he has addressed many of the social issues related to marriage. I especially like the way he deals with the issue of submissive wives - addressing correctly the passage vs. feminist perversions of it.

The flow of the book is straightforward:

The reader gets an introduction to the fact that we have marriage problems that must be addressed. This is followed by a chapter on the prospects of staying single, rather than getting married. I felt this chapter needed more work. Begg does stay biblical, but I felt there is more to what the Bible says about this topic than I got. The third chapter was very good. Begg provides a commentary on the traditional wedding vows. I have never seen this done and I loved it. This is followed by a chapter on the wife's role in the marriage and then one on the man's role in the marriage. The chapter on the man's role is excellent and should be read by every man. Another chapter is on pulling weeds in your marriage and it is insightful. The final chapter is on planting hedges - taking proactive steps to strengthen your marriage.

Overall this book has some great biblical advice for marriage. However, it seemed to be lacking something. This could be due to the fact that Begg began this work as a prolonged "note to self" about keeping his own marriage strong. Perhaps I am accustomed to hearing his Scottish accent and did not get it from the words of his book. Either way, I would still recommend this book to married couples and singles contemplating marriage. I just want to forewarn the reader that it is not the most dynamic book they will read about marriage. The content is pretty solid though.

If you have never heard Alistair Begg preach,...listen to one of his sermons. He is the best preacher on the radio today. You will enjoy his preaching!

Wonderful Insight and Biblical Application  Nov 15, 2000
This book is a must read for all married people or people contemplating getting married. Pastor Begg's scriptural applications are very fitting in today's society of quick marriages and quick divorces. In order to stay together you have to follow God's design for marriage.
great, "down to earth", easy to understand  Mar 21, 1998
Pastor Begg's usage of "easy to understand examples" is great.
This book offers a good foundation to build on based on Scriptures.
The style of writing, while showing great intellect, makes for easy reading.
Go back to the Maker's instruction manual and do it right  Aug 27, 1997
If you're serious about avoiding Marital failure, then follow the maker's instruction manual and you cannot fail
