A Lifelong Love Review
I have read several books written by Gary Thomas and have been blessed by them all. I was filled with excitement when I was asked to review his new book A Lifelong Love!!! Marriage is important to God and, therefore, is equally important to me. I don’t take my vows lightly. Anytime I get a chance to read a good marriage book by an author I believe speaks the truth, I go for it!
Here is what Amazon says about A Lifelong Love:
Gary Thomas believes couples often settle for too little when it comes to marriage. We fail to understand how deeply God cares about our spouse. We diminish our need to not only understand what biblical love really is, but also to become a people who excel at it. We let ourselves drift apart instead of making the daily choices to grow closer together.
Whether your marriage needs a complete makeover, a touch up, or just a new purpose, A Lifelong Love promises to set your relationship on an entirely new dimension. You will never look at worship or your spouse in the same way again. You will understand how living for that day will so radically transform the decisions you make this day. And Gary will guide you through the power shifts and seasonal mine fields that blow up so many marriages so that you can grow in your love instead of in your disappointment.
Thirty years of study and two decades of working with couples has led Gary Thomas to his most significant book yet on the relationship between husband and wife. Find out for yourself what all the fuss is about—and why A Lifelong Love is sure to challenge the way the church talks about marriage.
This book wasn’t written exclusively for the newlywed or the season married veterans, but rather it was written for any season of your married life. If you read my review to Sacred Marriage, or if you have read Sacred Marriage, you’ll be pleased to know A Lifelong Love is the “sequel.” Gary has such deep insights into the scripture and his books are packed FULL of scripture references that tie right in with the lessons he is teaching. As much as I love reading books to help keep us on track – okay, keep ME on track – in our marriage, I know there is absolutely no word that will override the inerrant word of God! The Bible is the ultimate guide on marriage. Gary does such a great job sticking to Biblical truths and presenting them in a way that honestly can really transform your marriage!
A LifeLong Love is divided into three different parts:
- Part One: The Magnificent Obsession
- Part Two: Growing Together
- Part Three: The Journey Towards Love
This is a great book to read together as a couple. In fact, I plan to read it again when Clay comes back from overseas. There are questions at the end of each chapter that give you a chance to dive in and have more in depth conversations. I personally believe that any marriage can gain wonderful insight from this book. Whether your marriage is struggling or you’re totally immersed in a healthy, happy marriage, you will gain so much!
