Item Description...
This valuable book--written for married or engaged couples or those in anticipation of marriage--is a biblical exposition of how to make the truth and principles of a godly marriage not just come alive, but last. Together, husband and wife discuss what the Bible has to say about marital roles, the why and how of communication, conflict resolution, romance, intimacy, and more.

Publishers Description

Marriage is a profound and marvelous mystery established by God for his glory-and that is for our good. So many marital relationships never reach their greatest potential because they have the fatal limitation of being focused on one another. When our focus is solely on God, our marriages have the potential to thrive and not merely survive.

SUPER!  Aug 30, 2008
MUST of the best marriage books I've read, and I have read lots :) To read and understand and LIVE this book would be to help your marriage immensely!
Valuable and grounded Christian marriage book  Apr 28, 2008
This book was assigned to us for pre-marriage counseling and we both found it to be encouraging, challenging, and worthwhile. It is thankfully concise at 160 pages but is also deep. My guess is this will be something I'll be referring to over and over again...
Excellent for small group discussion . . .  Feb 9, 2008
We worked through this book in a group of 9 couples. It led to great discussion in the group.

I had read the first "Love that Lasts", written many years ago. This is an excellent update.

Gary and Betsy's transparency and humility is encouraging and provoking in a good way.

We have given this book to many young couples . . . even as a wedding gift.
Love that Lasts helps marriages last   Nov 26, 2007
There are numerous books available on the topic of marriage. Many of them deal with communication, romance, and roles. The Ricucci's book is different. While they deal with some of these same topics, they do this from a God-centered, biblical perspective. Their book begins with an emphasis on the purpose of marriage, which finds its purpose in God. The husband and wife's role also find their purpose in God, which is addressed in chapters 2 and 3. These are areas which are rarely addressed in most books on marriage. The Ricuccis give a good, basic, complementarian perspective, which is the exception rather than the rule in most books. The Ricuccis also include 3 chapters on communication and 2 chapters on romance and the sexual relationship. They write with an easy to understand, practical style which people find very helpful. All in all I recommend this book and would give it to any couple considering marriage or needing a good book on marriage.
Biblical marriage  Aug 14, 2007
This marriage book stands out because its focus is Biblical. Many Christian marriage books seem to come at marriage from a psychological angle first, then add verses to support that. This starts with a Biblical view of marriage and then moves towards each spouses practical responses to that view. A group of couples in our church recently went through this book and many found it to be very helpful in their marriages.

There were aspects of the writing style that bothered me a bit. The authors would change from his perspective to her perspective in a kind of haphazard way. It seems like offsetting or transitioning between these two viewpoints would make it easier to read. However, despite that I still highly recommend this book!
