They learned about love and sexuality from social media, their friends, Disney fairy tales , pornography, or even their own rocky past, 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.
In Love That Lasts, 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. Looking to God’s design for love and sex, while drawing on 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 every person has only one soul mate, that marriage will complete you, or that pornography and hook-ups are harmless.
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.
