From the Inside Flap

Every marriage has a 100% chance of success!

God created marriage to be the most fulfilling and sacred of all human covenants. It was designed to be passionate and rewarding, to meet our deepest needs and desires. And it was meant to last a lifetime. So how do you build an indestructible marriage that is filled with passion, purpose, and excitement?

In Lifelong Love Affair, Jimmy Evans shows you and your spouse how to embrace God's dream for your marriage, cultivate romance and fun, and fulfill each other's spiritual, emotional, and sexual needs.|Jimmy Evans is the cofounder of MarriageToday, a TV program that airs three times weekly on the DayStar Television Network and reaches more than 100 million households in North America. In 1994 he and his wife, Karen, founded MarriageToday Ministries as a way to bring help and healing to hurting couples. They are the authors of the bestselling Marriage on the Rock, and Jimmy is also the author of several other books, including The Keys to Sexual Fulfillment in Marriage and 7 Secrets of Successful Families. He and Karen are popular speakers whose conferences on marriage and family issues regularly draw huge crowds. Find out more at www.MarriageToday.com.

Frank Martin is the author or coauthor of nineteen books, including Furious Pursuit and Embracing Eternity. A frequent collaborator, he has written books with such notable personalities as Nicky Cruz, Bill McCartney, Dr. O. S. Hawkins, Wally Armstrong, and Dr. Robert Schuller. He has written articles for numerous magazines, including Marriage Partnership, Discipleship Journal, and Pray! and has served for the past eighteen years as a family commentary writer for Focus on the Family.

From the Back Cover

You can have a passionate marriage that lasts a lifetime!

"Jimmy Evans has a way of combining Scripture with honest stories about his own marriage to show that no relationship is beyond God's help. Lifelong Love Affair is insightful, moving, challenging, and so entertaining. This book is full of wisdom."--Dr. Gary Smalley, author of The DNA of Relationships and I Promise

"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

Excellent book from a couple of perspectives - as a husband, it's a huge help and pushes being intentional about your marriage. Evans says that great marriages don't just fall into place anymore than someone can accidentally become an accomplished musician. It's true. The book equips you to be intentional about making your marriage last.

As a pastor, it's also organized in a way that's easily divided into study materials. I found the book website and it has small group videos for free and a downloadable sermon. ([...]). Looks like Evans is investing into pastors to help church marriages. Lord knows we need it!

Couldn't wait for a new read from Jimmy Evans. This book didn't disappoint either - and is so needed! Investing in your marriage is worth every bit of energy you invest and pays huge dividends. Jimmy talks about having a vision for your marriage in this book and that concept alone is worth the read!

Lifelong Love Affair is definitely the overall summary of what it takes to make a great marriage. If you are just getting married or have been married forever, there are great tools and reminders to keep the fire burning. I love the honesty that is presented about what real love is and the fact that everyone CAN have this kind of love, a dynamic, fearless and covenantal love. Also, there is a study Guide for small groups that is a great bonus to this book. A definite recommended read for all couples!

Work of love. Jimmy obviously knows his product. Heartfelt honest. I was married for 31 years I was broken after that. I married again it is 100 x harder the second time but we are both committed to never go through divorce again. We both wish we could have read this book the first time. Divorce is NEVER the answer

Jimmy Evans is definitely the best marriage teacher out there! I bought this book at a recent Lifelong Love Affair seminar - his solid teaching and down to earth approach in communicating has opened our eyes and revived our marriage! The vision retreat he references in his book is a game changer!!! Wow!! What an impact it has had on our marriage!! Jimmy and Karen, we LOVE you and pray that everyone will buy this book and will pass it on to someone else!!!! This is so needed and has changed our marriage!!!!!

Format: Hardcover
Today people have love affairs. Lots of them... Unfortunately most of these love affairs are with the wrong things. Media, Movies, Sports, Food, porn... you name it - love affairs abound. But Jimmy Evans suggests a lifelong love affair with something (or someone who matters most) - your spouse! This book is simple, rock solid, and timely. If ever there was a time for a prophetic call back home to those things that matter most... now is that time, Jimmy Evans is that trusted voice of experience...
What is even better is that Marriage Today has free support materials, group study videos, free sermon outlines for churches and groups to study and discuss this book together in community. Make this book more than just a personal encounter... bring your friends, family and church.
Jimmy Evans does not disappoint.

Get this book, even if it's just you reading it and not your spouse, you can make improvements to your relationship from one side and turn the tide. I plan to read it again often as a reminder to myself and I've already recommended it to someone.

I wasn't sure what to expect but Jimmy Evans knocks the ball out of the park. He shares how rough his marriage initially was and how him and Karen came through it and the information throughout the rest of the book is spot on and is very encouraging.
