Praise for Living in Love

“This is a terrific book on marriage from two people who know what they’re talking about. They have earned the right to speak, and we are blessed indeed to listen.”
     —BETHMOORE, author of So Long, Insecurity: You’ve Been a Bad Friend to Us

“James and Betty must know something. Spend any moments near them, and you quickly detect, and enjoy, an uncommon affection. I pray that we learn from their experience.”
     —MAX LUCADO, pastor and best-selling author

“It has been said a good marriage is a blessing to the world. I do believe those who read their book will find this to be true in James and Betty’s own union. We can all learn from their experience, and we thank them for that.”
     —ROBERT DUVALL, actor

“We appreciate the way James and Betty Robison relate to each other with such respect and dignity. They are the same people on- and off-camera, and that is the test of a quality marriage. We know you will love Living in Love, because here they reveal the secrets behind their beautiful story and great marriage.”
      —JOHN and STASI ELDREDGE, authors of Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul and Love and War: Finding the Marriage You’ve Dreamed Of

“I’ve known James and Betty Robison for years, and they’re the real deal. Their book is more than the real deal. They were so vulnerable in sharing their own struggles. Anyone who has ever asked themselves “Is this marriage working? Is it worth it?” will embrace this book and will embrace James and Betty as they share from the heart God’s plan for marriage. What a great job they did on this book!”
     —DR. KEVIN LEMAN, New York Times best-selling author of Have a New Kid by Friday, Have a New Husband by Friday, and Have a New You by Friday

“James and Betty are one of the couples I love and admire most in this world. I have had the joy of sharing many meals and deep conversations with them and always come away richer and closer to Christ. In a world where relationships are crumbling at an unprecedented rate, James and Betty share what they have lived and continue to live. This wisdom is priceless!”
     —SHEILA WALSH, author and Women of Faith speaker

“James and Betty Robison do a fine job teaching together and making their book on the challenges of marriage come alive. The honesty, the transparency, and the practical biblical insights and application make this book easy to understand. It will make a great gift for anyone in a marriage or soon to be wed.”
     —DR. CHARLES STANLEY, senior pastor, First Baptist Atlanta, and founder and president, In Touch Ministries

“In Living in Love, James and Betty Robison share their fifty-year endearing love story of hope, commitment, endurance, perseverance, and passion. Their marriage is a real-life example of what living out a covenant marriage looks like. Their testimony challenges us to the core, continually reminding us to press on in our marriage and never give up.”
      —JEFF and CHERYL SCRUGGS, authors of I Do Again: How We Found a Second Chance at Our Marriage—and You Can Too

“I cannot think of anyone more equipped to write a book on marriage than James and Betty Robison. Along with my own parents’ marriage, theirs has made an indelible imprint on my life. As we’ve shared dinner and conversations,
I’ve been enthralled to watch their adoring smiles, caring touches, and intimate exchanges. Indeed, this is a marriage to behold. I’m so glad they’ve chosen to give insight that will help us all build solid marriages of our own. Read and be blessed.”
     —PRISCILLA SHIRER, author and Bible teacher

“James and Betty are an authentic couple who have a tremendous heart for God and a great love for each other. My wife, Katie, and I can tell by being around them how much they enjoy each other’s company. The personal examples in Living in Love illustrate that they are a real couple dealing with real challenges. They let God’s light shine through their marriage and demonstrate that, with God, couples can work through anything.”
      —JOSH HAMILTON, all-star outfielder of the Texas Rangers

“James and Betty Robison have provided every married couple with a solid tool to develop and maintain a marriage that will stand the test of time, trouble, trials, and tribulations. Living in Love is a must-read for couples who believe that God knew what He was doing when He created marriage and who want to see that purpose worked out in their own relationship.” 
     —TONY and LOIS EVANS, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas

“As their pastor, I know that James and Betty Robison are authentic, sincere, and humble servants of the Lord, and they are most definitely and truly living in love. This book contains the keys you need for an exciting and fulfilling marriage. It has been a tremendous blessing to my wife, Debbie, and me, and I wholeheartedly recommend Living in Love for every couple.”
     —ROBERT MORRIS, senior pastor, Gateway Church, Southlake, Texas

“I’ve seen the marriage of James and Betty Robison up close and personal for over thirty years. Living in Love is from their heart. They have a happy partnership, which has led to a worldwide ministry, yet they have kept their marriage centered on Christ. They have struggled with many of the same issues you and I have confronted, and in this book they share what has worked for them. I highly recommend Living in Love.”
     —RUTH GRAHAM, author of Fear Not Tomorrow, God Is Already There

“This is not a book of just suggestions that might work. It is two lives joined together in love by practicing principles that will work—for any couple! Readers will be inspired by James and Betty’s journey.”
     —DR. GARY SMALLEY, author of From Anger to Intimacy

“I have known James and Betty Robison for years, and I so enjoy being around them. That’s because they always treat each other with love, respect, compassion, and good humor. Their book Living in Love tells us how to do the same. They didn’t come by their great marriage automatically; they worked at it. And they learned valuable information along the way that they want to impart to others. Their personal story will touch you, and their insight will ignite you. This wellwritten book should be read by every married couple and also by anyone who hopes to be married in the future. I couldn’t put it down.”
      —STORMIE OMARTIAN, author of The Power of a Praying Wife and The Power of a Praying Husband

I really enjoy watching James & Betty Robison's television show "Life Today." They are a very sweet and interactive couple on camera, and I'm sure they are in "real life" as well.

I was excited to read this book, as the Robisons have been married for decades, and profess to have a very happy marriage. But, this book wasn't exactly what I had hoped for.

This book is geared more toward people who are not yet married, or who are newly married and are having trouble getting into the rhythm of marriage. It would have been a wonderful book for me to have read when I was in my first two or three years of marriage (or before). The book uses a very conversational tone to explain the realities of marriage--to help the reader see that marriage isn't how it's portrayed in movies and fairy tales or soap operas. It's a wonderful concept for a book, because I haven't seen very many books that truly address what marriage is really like, and in such a kind and gentle tone. The section on communication is especially good.

Newly married people, or people who are having trouble in their marriages, could benefit greatly from this book. However, my marriage is very solid (although we've learned the hard way how to get to this point!!), so the book didn't teach me anything about marriage that I haven't already learned.

Please note I did receive this book free of charge from WaterBrook Multnomah, through their Blogging for Books program, in exchange for my honest review. The opinions stated are my own.

This is a very down to earth and realistic book on the marriage relationship. I gave it to my daughter to read. James and Betty deal with conflict resolution in constructive way. I wish I had read this years ago and would highly recommend this to all.

Format: Paperback
There are 17,549 search results for paperback books on "Christian Marriage" on Amazon.com. Add to that 4,714 hardback books (presumably some overlap). I'd call that a glut of books. How do you know which ones to read? It's important to be selective. So to the end of serving by helping to be selective, I'll be blunt: pass on this one.

It's a fine book. Better than some I've read. It's nice. It's encouraging. It's uplifting. The authors seem to have a wonderful marriage and sound like fine marriage counselors. I might even recommend them to a young couple if they were in my church. But this book does not have the ballast needed for a strong marriage book.

They allude to the importance of convenant keeping, but they don't give the reasons why covenant keeping is critical, they simply say it is. They allude to the enabling grace of God in forgiveness, but don't explain how it works. Both of these concepts are foundational necessities in teaching on marriage. We must answer the question: "why?"

I don't see much of an answer to "why?" in the book beyond "So you can have a successful and fulfilling marriage, which is what God wants you to have." (my summary of their major theme. Apologies to the authors if I missed the point). This is critical because there is more at stake in Christian marriage. We are reflecting the Gospel, God's unilateral covenant with His people.

The practical sections of the book are good. Again, I think the couple would make wise counselors for individuals in the church. But with marriage books, you should be careful to read foundational ones, then in light of that, apply principles to your specific situation. This book is lacking in foundation.

Pass on this one. Instead read these books. They are the kind you need.

Format: Hardcover
I have read a handful of marriage books and each have their unique approach and tips to marriage. I personally am encouraged by books that give a big picture of marriage and don't have a certain formula to having a healthy marriage. That is what Living in Love does. It walks through specific topics in marriage without giving you a formula to follow.

Living in Love is actually written by both spouses instead of just the husband and wife. I really enjoy this aspect of it because they are both sharing their wisdom on specific topics. James and Betty Robinson are open and honest about their own weaknesses, sins and the trials they have faced in marriage. They have been married for 50 years so this book is chalked full of great wisdom and life experiences.

They don't give you a ton of tips to put into practice but rather it is an encouragement to keep on pursuing a God-glorifying and loving marriage. They walk through the stages of their marriage and the things that made it work without making you feel like you have to be exactly like them. I felt like I could relate to so much of what they shared and was encouraged to keep on pursuing the Lord through the easy and hard seasons of marriage.
Lastly, I appreciated the fact that they are ministry couple. There are challenges that are unique to couples in ministry and they explained those challenges well. They also shared how they walked through them and how it grew them closer to each other. I highly recommend this book as a great resource for your marriage. It is easy to read and fun to read.
