What people are saying…

"Marriage isn’t all about you, but rather, more about how you can serve one another with love and humility through every season of life. Though Jimmy and Karen’s story nearly ended in divorce, it was lessons such as this that allowed God to heal their marriage and gave them a deeper love and appreciation for each other. Whether you’re newly married, think you have it figured out, or in a difficult season, this book is a must read to strengthen and enrich your marriage!”

"Jimmy and Karen Evans’ proven ministry, especially in nurturing healthy marriage prospects for multitudes of couples, is the result of two even greater facts: they are people of proven character and they are a husband and wife of a proven marriage. Jimmy and Karen characterize the kind of relationship they teach about and what God commands. Without hesitation, I recommend this book and its authors."

"Marriage on the Rock is at the top of my recommendation list for every person I meet. Whether married, divorced or single, its personal, practical, humorous and scriptural approach is a must-read. As a pastor, Marriage on the Rock is one of my most valuable resources. Jimmy and Karen Evans have been called by God to change the tide of divorce in America. Their non-condemning, nonconforming, compassionate and caring message is exactly what our sin-sick society needs.

"Marriage on the Rock gives plain and tested ways in which simple obedience to biblical teachings, in dependence on the presence of Christ in life, can resolve the entire range of difficulties that plague marriage today. The secret of the advice given is that it really does bring husbands and wives into harmony with the realistic action of God in their hearts and lives. It tells them how to find the kingdom of God right where they are."

"God designed marriage, and his vision for it is so much grander than our own! Couples who hope for God's very best in their marriage need time-tested and timeless wisdom. Marriage on the Rock details that wisdom in an encouraging and highly accessible way.”

"Marriage on the Rock is a terrific book to read and follow if you are fearful and uncertain about how to enter or sustain a vital marriage (and who isn’t!). Jimmy and Karen Evans get up close and personal about life’s most valuable and sometimes difficult human encounter. The content is rock solid, experience-based and biblical."

"We highly recommend this book to dating and marriage couples alike because of the impact that it has made in our own marriage. For many years now, Marriage on the Rock is taught each week in one of our premarital or ongoing marriage classes here at Lakewood Church.  Pastor Jimmy, thank you for impacting generations of married couples!”

"In our Hispanic culture, we are known for placing great value on faith, hard work, and family. But Hispanics, just like men and women in every other culture, are usually uncertain on how to be successful in the most important human relationship. I recommend Marriage on the Rock to everyone who wishes to improve marital communication and who would like to meet the needs (even sexual needs) of his or her spouse. It has been said that marriage can be either a little heaven or a lot of hell on earth. Thank you, Reverend Jimmy and Karen Evans, for writing a book that not only gives us wise and inspired advice but leads us to the Rock—La Roca, Jesucristo—who truly wants us all to have not just a little joy in marriage but also marital bliss!"
