"We live in an age where virtual reality and perverse sexual fantasy have often replaced intimacy in our most significant relationships, including marriage. In Forever and Always: The Art of Intimacy, Steven and Celestia Tracy provide prophetic, pastoral, and practical insights on how to nurture and protect relational intimacy. I highly recommend this handbook as a guide for preparing for as well as restoring and enhancing the masterpiece of one's marriage."

"The Tracys have done all of us a great service with this wise and tender book. They themselves have worked for years to achieve a healthy intimacy in their own marriage and their reflections are of benefit to everyone. Steve and Celestia are godly, caring, sensitive people who have worked through these issues over decades. Their own marriage is a mature one, tempered by suffering, and marked by devotion to God and one another. The book is a treasure trove, earthy, real, heavenly, delightful. Expect to be blessed and enriched in your own relationships."

"Here Steve and Celestia show by conviction, research, and experience that for a couple to know one another, at any level, requires wisdom. The insight they offer from many sources of counsel will be a helpful eye-opener for those of us who have assumed way too much about what it really means to care for one another."
