Publisher's Summary

In Love That Lasts, New York Times best-selling author 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 listeners an inspiring, realistic vision of love, dating, marriage, and sex.
Young people today enter adulthood with expectations of blissful dating followed by romantic, fulfilling marriages 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 the lies, such as the belief that every person has only one soul mate, that marriage will complete you, and that pornography and hookups are harmless.

Concise and relatable

Outstanding book! Really enjoyed listening to their stories and the advises they gave. It was even better when the authors were the one who actually reads it although Alyssa's voice is quite high pitched. A book well done it is.

A Blessing

I loved listening to this book. It brought me peace, hope and a little bit of healing as I am currently feeling empty and a little lost from a heartache. Love Jeff and Alyssa Bethke! Thank you both for this wonderful audiobook!
