Love That Lasts

My wife and I have been reading through Love That Lasts by Gary and Betsy Ricucci.  I recommend the book for all married couples.  At first, I approached the book with the attitude, “probably nothing new in here…I’ve got the basics down…”  Well, my attitude was proved wrong on at least two counts.  First, marriage is a topic that calls for revisitation of Scriptural truths time and time again.  So, in one sense, there may be nothing profoundly novel about this book, but Gary and Betsy take us back to the foundations that keep a marriage strong.  In fact, I would be skeptical of a book on marriage that tries to sell a “whole new approach” to the God-ordained, Gospel-reflecting purpose and design of marriage.  Second, the Ricuccis present the material in a fresh way that bring those classic truths alive with resonating dialogue with the reader.  It has been said that healthy marriages take advantage of marriage conferences and marriage books on a regular basis.  For example, attend one marriage conference every year and read one book on marriage every year, etc.  Well, if you are looking for a good book to bring you and your spouse closer to God and closer to each other, try this Christ-centered resource and see what you think.  Ephesians 5:22-33.
