Love That Lasts
By Jefferson and Alyssa Bethke
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: 10/10/17
The Bethkes take turns penning chapters detailing how their dating past affected their relationship. Their different writing styles highlight their different perspectives on how faith informed how they viewed the opposite sex, dating, and marriage.
Readers will appreciate the chronological way in which they present their story as well as how they faced relational challenges along the way. The Bethkes begin each chapter with a clever (and pertinent) song title that lends to the sometimes-playful banter between them. The authors are completely transparent on how they individually and as a married team purpose to make Jesus primary in their own hearts and marriage.
Readers who are single, engaged, or newly married will find cautions and challenges as well as helpful encouragements throughout this lively and upbeat text.
