Alan and Lisa Robertson, members of America’s favorite back woods family and the Duck Commander Clan, take on the topic of relationships as they share the secrets that saved their marriage.
Infidelity, deceit, distrust, and shame. Unfortunately, these are recurring themes in many of today’s marriages in America—even in the family-values-promoting, Christian-based Robertson family.
With a romance that began in junior high, the couple got off to a rocky start but soon settled into married life and had two baby girls. Alan became a pastor in the church where his family had been members for years. Then, when Lisa had an affair, the heartache and the tension was very public.
But this is not a book about a marriage gone wrong. It is a candid story of rescued love and renewed commitment. After nearly getting divorced, Alan and Lisa came to terms with what went wrong in their marriage and both began the hard work of making it right. Now married for twenty-nine years, Alan and Lisa counsel couples in trouble and speak across the country—openly sharing their hardships, their journey to renewed commitment, and a thriving marriage.
Alan Robertson grew up hunting, fishing, and helping build the family business in the 1970s and ’80s. Alan left Duck Commander when he received the call for ministry in 1988 and served as a senior pastor in West Monroe, Lousiana, until 2012, when he rejoined the Duck Commander clan. Alan received an associate’s degree from White’s Ferry Road School of Biblical Studies and a bachelor in ministry from Sunset International Bible Institute. He lives in West Monroe, Louisiana, with his wife, Lisa, his two grown daughters, and two grandchildren.
Lisa Robertson is the wife of Alan Robertson and worked with him at the church in several different ministries before joining him back at Duck Commander. She is a committed mother and grandmother and guides her family in the ways of faith.
"The Robertson family you see on TV is characterized by happy marriages, great family relationships, and a strong faith in God--and all that is the absolute truth. But as you read Al and Lisa's book, A New Season, you may feel as if you've stepped into a soap opera. Theirs is a story of two people who brought some hard childhood experiences into a union that only magnified the problems. The journey from soap opera to blessed marriage is based in a miraculous restoration that you, the reader, can also experience. By the end of this book, you will realize that no marriage problems are insurmountable--if you have faith. "
– Tim Harlow, Sr. Pastor of Parkview Christian Church, Chicago
“Al and Lisa Robertson’s story is one of wounded-ness, poor decisions, sin, relational pain, and betrayal?but ultimately reconciliation and redemption through Christ. For those who say ‘but you don’t understand what I’ve been through,’ I recommend this book as a clear example God can and does restore broken lives and hearts, no matter how fragile.”
