Book Review: Lasting Love by Alistair Begg

Alistair Begg’s book Lasting Love has been encouraging and strengthening marriages for almost 20 years. This book is more then a book on marriage it also deals with what it means to be father and mother within the context of marriage. This book provides a thoroughly biblical understanding of marriage and the roles assigned to husband and wife. In addition there are powerful illustrations given of the truths taught in this book. The example of Robertson McQuilken used to illustrate the “in sickness” aspect of marriage vows is a touching picture of the beauty of biblical marriage. Begg writes from the complementarian perspective, and demonstrates the biblical nature of his position as well as demonstrating the challenges that arise when the biblical pattern of marriage is abandoned as has been done by the greater part of American society. Books on marriage usually have very short life spans, they are popular for a time and then forgotten in obscurity. This book is not like this it is one that will benefit those considering marriage; those newly married, and even those who have been married for some time. This review was made possible through a digital copy provided by the publisher through Netgalley.
