New York Times bestselling author, Jefferson Bethke and his wife, Alyssa, expose the distorted views of love that dominate in our culture and damage our hearts, minds, and souls in Love That Lasts.
Jeff's own prodigal son past and Alyssa's True Love Waits experience set the backdrop for their observation that there must be a third and better way. Combining personal storytelling with biblical teaching, they present readers with an inspiring, realistic vision of love, dating, marriage, and sex.
Young people today are rushing into adulthood with expectations of blissful dating followed by a romantic, fulfilling marriage, only to realize they've been duped. They learned about love and sexuality from social media, their friends, Disney movies, pornography, or even their own rocky past. They have no idea what healthy, lifelong love is supposed to be like. The results are often disastrous, with this generation becoming one of the most relationally sick, sexually addicted, and divorce ridden in history.
The Bethkes look to God's design while drawing lessons from their own successes and failures in order to explode the fictions and falsehoods of our day. One by one, they expose the lies, such as the belief that every person has only one soul mate, that marriage will complete you, or that pornography and hook-ups are harmless.
