Love That Lasts: How We Discovered God's Better Way for Love, Dating, Marriage, and Sex
By Jefferson AND Alyssa Bethke
In Love That Lasts, the New York Times-bestselling author of Jesus > Religion, Jefferson Bethke, and his wife, Alyssa, expose the distorted views of love that permeate our culture and damage our hearts, minds and souls. Drawing from Jeff’s “prodigal son” personal history and from Alyssa’s “True Love Waits” experience, the Bethkes point to a third and better way. Blending personal storytelling with biblical teaching, they offer readers an inspiring, realistic vision of love, dating, marriage and sex.
Young people today enter adulthood with expectations of blissful dating followed by a romantic, fulfilling marriage only to discover they’ve been duped. They learned about love and sexuality from social media, their friends, Disney fairy tales, pornography or even their own rocky pasts, and 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.
Looking to God’s design while drawing lessons from their own successes and failures, the Bethkes explode the fictions and falsehoods of our current moment. One by one, they peel back lies such as:
- The belief that every person has only one soul mate.
- The belief that marriage will complete you.
- And the belief that pornography and hook-ups are harmless.
