"God has a plan for your marriage, and it includes passion, romance, fun, and (shh!) a fulfilling sex life. Jimmy Evans is a leading voice in making sure husbands and wives are aware of God's plan for them. If you're married or even thinking about getting married, read this book. Now."--Christine Caine, director of Equip and Empower Ministries; founder of The A21 Campaign

"Jimmy Evans isn't just one of the best speakers and authors on marriage, he's also a close personal friend. I know that what he shares in Lifelong Love Affair comes from his heart and from the incredible insight and revelation he has received from the Lord. Apply these biblical principles, and you'll have more than a good marriage--you'll build a strong, lasting marriage, rooted in God's eternal love."--Robert Morris, senior pastor, Gateway Church; bestselling author of The Blessed Life, From Dream to Destiny, and The God I Never Knew

"Whether speaking from his own experience or relating powerful insights from Scripture, Jimmy Evans provides married couples with the tools and inspiration to make their relationship last forever. If you want an indestructible marriage, reading this is step one."--Chris Hodges, pastor, Church of the Highlands, Birmingham, Alabama; author of Fresh Air

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Evans (Seven Secrets of Successful Families) believes that any couple, regardless of their baggage, can rebuild a broken and strained marriage into one that is stronger and more passionate than it was during the honeymoon. He comes from a Christian perspective and advocates first surrendering oneself and the marriage to God, then committing oneself to honesty and loving communication, and going beyond what's expected. Evans details his advice in each chapter with case studies, verbatims, and exercises. A four-week discussion plan for groups concludes the book. Evans provides reputable advice for Christians who can follow the ideals of biblical covenantal love. As usual with marriage improvement books, it's not necessary, but a definite plus, if both partners read the book. Highly recommended for small study groups.
