Reviews

Praise for The Good News About Marriage

"In the thirty-two years I have been deeply immersed in the world of marriage ministry, I have been demoralized at times by the negative statistics quoted. And now I am ecstatic as I read the truth in this incredible book. Thank you, Shaunti, for doing the hard work necessary to expose the myths and lies and for finally revealing the facts about marriage. This book and the undeniable research in it is a game changer!"
--Jimmy Evans, founder and CEO of MarriageToday, senior pastor of Trinity Fellowship "This is an important book. Shaunti and Tally do an impressive job of showing that there is room for different viewpoints on divorce statistics and room for optimism about marriage. I believe that people make higher-risk choices partly because they have lost hope in marriage, and this book presents a basis for real hope."
--Dr. Scott Stanley, coauthor of A Lasting Promise, research professor at the University of Denver "Lamenting the demise of the family has almost become a cottage industry. There's a lot of legitimate bad news out there, but Shaunti reminds readers that the situation might not be nearly as dire as we think--in fact, there are encouraging signs of hope. That's a welcome message!"
--Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family
