about the book
Cassidy and Daniela Parlane’s newly released “What Love Is Not” shares an excellent take on living an enriched life with God and your spouse and shares with the readers how to strengthen their marriage through the word of God.
"What Love Is Not" is geared for anyone who is single and looking to get into a relationship, someone who is courting, engaged, married, divorced, on the brink of divorce, or is daring to marry again.
If you are anywhere in that spectrum, there are some nuggets of wisdom in this book that may benefit you right where you are.
The objective of this book is to provide some simple biblical insights from different angles, from the perspective of two people who took a shot at marriage, did it their way, failed, and dared to try again—God’s way.
The Parlanes state “While there are those who may have not experienced the great tragedy that comes with divorce, they may have experienced low points or even a constant survival-mode state of mediocrity. The spark has been snuffed out. Marriage has been merely reduced to a monotonous routine. For some, marriage may have flatlined. This book seeks to revitalize, strengthen, and bring hope to the institution of marriage that God so loves.”
This couple deals with the most practical, nitty-gritty matters—right to the heart of the deepest spiritual issues that arise in relationships. They delve into the breakdown and complexity of true love, God’s purpose and design for marriage, understanding gender roles, right down to the dynamics of a thriving relationship. Read about their personal stories of restoration—how God used their failures and makes all things new!
Consumers can purchase “What Love Is Not” at traditional brick & mortar bookstores, or online at Amazon.com, Apple iTunes store, or Barnes and Noble.

"Many books about love and marriage preface with expertise from a perspective of success. "What Love Is Not" hits the reader with the authors (the Parlanes) proclaiming their expertise comes from FAILURE, not success. That in and of itself demonstrates a humility which most authors never display. Being a newlywed myself, I found this book especially profound, educational and informative. The Parlanes discuss the importance of mission and vision in a marriage, the dangers which social media can pose to a married couple, and the roles in a marriage - all from a Christian perspective. This books does a phenomenal job of touching upon all of the pivotal factors which can make or break a marriage. This book should be required reading not only for couples considering marriage, but for those already married who need greater clarity in understanding this sacred bond. Can't wait to read it again!"
