Duck Dynasty stars Al and Lisa Robertson

Desperate Forgiveness, a new book on healing broken marriages by Duck Dynasty stars Al and Lisa Robertson

Carol Stream, Ill. (April 24, 2019) Focus on the Family, in alliance with Tyndale House Publishers, will release Desperate Forgiveness on June 4, 2019. Al and Lisa Robertson have lived through the pain of adultery and lack of communication in their marriage, but through life-altering, desperate forgiveness, they reached a place of reconciliation. In this new book, Al and Lisa share what they have learned with anyone who wants to exchange broken relationships for healing.

By sharing true stories from friends and family, as well as biblical examples, Desperate Forgiveness provides the support couples need on the hard road to forgiveness. Al and Lisa help their readers see the necessity and power of humility, the freedom found in letting go of bitterness, and the restoration on the other side of desperation.

Al and Lisa Robertson have been married for more than 32 years. Al, a former pastor of 22 years, helped start the Duck Commander family business. Together, Al and Lisa have spoken at marriage retreats and seminars for more than 17 years, coauthored three books, and now travel across the country sharing their story of brokenness, restoration, and healing in their marriage.
