Marriage is great, but it's not forever. It's until death do us part.
Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives. In his latest book, Francis Chan joins together with his wife Lisa to address the question many couples wonder at the altar: "How do I have a healthy marriage?" Setting aside typical topics on marriage, Francis and Lisa dive into Scripture to understand what it means to have a relationship that satisfies the deepest parts of our souls. In the same way Crazy Love changed the way we saw our personal relationship with God, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will radically shift the way we see one of the most important relationships in our life. Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage.
Whether you are single, dating or married, You and Me Forever will help you discover the adventure that you were made for and learn how to thrive in it. 100% of the net profits from You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will go towards providing food, shelter and rehabilitation for thousands of orphaned children and exploited women in partnership with global charities.

"Life changing and inspiring"
This is not your traditional marriage book. There are no checklists and formulas but one clear, strong message about the gospel. That being said, it's the best marriage advice I've read in 15 years.
This is also not just for married people. The majority of the content is applicable regardless of marital status.
The fact that it's narrated by the authors makes it like listening to a podcast. Much better than other audibles I've purchased in this regard.
Highly recommend for those who are ready to be inspired and challenged (but I did also go buy a hard copy because I wanted to really underline, asterisk and mark this up!)
"Only if you are ready to die to self..."
This book was a struggle to listen to, not because of the material and how it is presented, but because I know it is the truth. The 1st chapter scared me, so I had to set it aside a day or 2 and pray and ask God to prepare me for its content and help me to apply His truth to my life. I hope my spouse is as driven or more driven than I would like to be, but if he is not, it does not relieve me of my responsibility...for I will answer to God for myself. I believe this book shares God's heart for marriage and family. As Christians, we need to quit playing and get busy with God's business! Thank You Francis and Lisa
"For any Christ follower"
This book is amazing. There is lessons for everyone. I encourage anyone that plans on getting married or having kids to read or listen to this book. A great eye opener to where we should focus our life.
"A must read for everyone! "
Regardless of marital status this book will give you the best picture of a biblically focused marriage that is rare in the Christian Church today.
I'm a single Christ-follower. This book encourages me all the more to focus on the mission Lord Jesus has given: to make disciples. And to live in radical faith, radical obedience and radical love to God.. It also convinces me even further to remain single unless I meet someone who shares the same love and passion I have for God, for people and for His mission. One who'd help me be more effective in my mission.
This Jesus first approach is the best book on marriage, relationship and life I have found. The key is Jesus.
This book points you back to Christ and his goodness and faithfulness. It is a convicting read, but well-written with love and gentleness in mind. It definitely got the wheels in my head turning, but leaves me wanting to more like Christ. I would recommend this book to others!
"In light of eternity..."
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were many moments in which I felt "called out" on thoughts and beliefs I have held without even realizing it. I would totally recommend this book and look forward to sharing it with whoever will listen. Get this book! My husband and I are excited to hear the Chans at a local church's marriage conference coming up this week. Can't wait!
"Fantastic book! Highly recommend it!"
Great content. One of the few preachers talking about having less and doing more. A much needed message for our time!
"Surprising – and powerful"
I expected another book about spending time together, sharing experiences, etc. Instead, I found a book about sharing a life vision and passion together. It's not about focusing on ourselves but on Jesus and his call for our life. To live a self centered life is to lose our lives. To live a Christ centered life is to save and make them matter for eternity. This can change a marriage. And a life.
Great challenge for any marriage - are you storing up treasures on earth or in heaven :-)
"You can hear the passion Francis and Lisa have in this book."
I am a 30yr old male, currently in a relationship and this book has encouraged me and helped me push forward into the role of becoming a Christ like husband. I'd thoroughly recommend this book to all Christians dating and those married if all ages. Even more so those who have been married a long time and maybe feel their Christian walk has become stale
