"Marriage is a relationship created and sustained by God. A successful marriage does not happen by accident; it succeeds by design. In his new book, The Four Laws of Love, my friend, Jimmy Evans, describes the God-ordered principles that govern a successful marriage and shows you how to understand and follow them to achieve the marriage you’ve always desired." (Victoria Osteen Co-Pastor)
"One of the strongest messages that Jimmy has in this book is that marriage, like everything of great value, is not free. It takes work, effort, and sacrifice. But, because it is of great value, the work and sacrifice are more than worth it, and he gives some great tips on how to love one another well." (Dr. Henry Cloud New York Times Bestselling Author)
