A excellent book, actually, if you want to know more about getting closer to God. For me, it helped me understand the different kinds of prayers and expressions of love to God. There are people who find God as they worship in church; there are people who find God in the silence of their meditation. Neither method is better or worse - each are more suited to different people.

I never quite figured out my primary love language, though. Gary Chapman suggests 5 love languages - words of affirmation,

I found this book thought-provoking and helpful. I'd already read the basic Five Love Languages book by the same author, and was pretty sure I knew my preferred 'languages' of love (touch and quality time). This book looks at them in the light of how we best related to God, and how he gets our attention. It was reassuring to see that my reluctance to use certain styles of worship or prayer may simply stem from the ways I express love, and it was also useful to understand better how other people ...more

I think if you read the five love languages first, it would bring deeper meaning to this book. It is interesting, since becoming engaged in September 2009, I feel like it has been revealed to me that there is something about marriage that God wants us to learn about his character and how we have a relationship with Him. As I have been on this journey of discovery, I believe that this book is yet another piece of that puzzle. In learning how to love our spouse, what our own love language is, and ...more

I loved reading about how God speaks our love language. Gary Chapman used Scripture as the foundation for explaining about the different love langauges and he gave us examples of people's life stories. You can either use this book with your devotions as a personal time with God, or it can be used as a study guide in a group of people.

1. Understanding the Five Love Languages

2. God Speaks Love Language #1: Words of Affirmation

3. God Speaks Love Language #2: Quality Time

Great book! A must read. (or LISTEN to in my case) Based on the Concepts of the Five Love Languages. Basically how you feel, take in and express Love, appreciation, acceptance etc.

This book Totally explains a ton about why we feel the way we do, with things such as church (why some parts work for us, and other things nothing, or even erk us)
Why sometimes we feel close to God and other times not. And how best to deal with it.

Not only explains those things, but challenges us to learn all the langu

Recommends it for: If anyone wants to read the book I highly recommend reading The Five Love Languages first.
The audio book first recaps the five (5) love languages according to Gary Chapman and then explains how to have eternal life through Jesus. The audio book does contain some extra information that the original book, The Five Love Languages, did not contain. This consists of how God shows his love in five different ways and how each person experiences God's love differently depending on their own love language. This book did not go as in depth about how God speaks our love language as I would have ...more

I value this author's work. I read the original book in the series when a counselor said it was one of the best communication books that will improve relationships. So I picked this up at a yard sale when I realized it was the same author. This book reaffirms something Cindy has helped me understand: that our Father in Heaven speaks to us using the "language" we are most comfortable with. He works within our learning system to verify his existence, and, as we draw closer to Him and understand ho ...more

I love the idea of this book so much. It just didn't really get to the depths I was hoping for. While he hits on certain ways God may be speaking our Love Language to us, there seem to be so many more examples that could have drawn readers in to God's love.

The best part about this book was the way it encouraged me to think about the many ways God speaks our Love Language to us (beyond what's actually suggested in the book). It has helped me in my evangelization efforts to desire to connect each

this has a good psychology base to it, the principle of the 5 languages could be very useful in certain circumstances- ie marriage difficulties, however, to turn it into a theology, and a method through which to view the world, i feel , is a grave mistake. it could be taken as a cop out, 'that isn't my primary love language, so i dont need to do it'. there was not enough stress on a person becoming a balanced fully rounded personality. my final take on the book it that it is yet another vehicle ...more

This book changed the way I look at my relationship with God and others. After reading this book I can understand more of the different ways God shows his love to myself and others. This book is amazing for the fact that it acknowledges that God made us all unique. God is love and we are all looking for love but we receive it in different ways. It also explains why some people choose to worship God in different ways and how none of these ways are wrong but just an expression of their love langua ...more

I'd read his 5 Love Languages for Singles & had taken the assessment in it to find out what mine are. It's a good thing I had because he doesn't include the assessment in this book. It's like he assumed readers had already taken it on his website or in a previous book.
It has some good info though I'd love to have a copy, instead of Inter Library Loan, and read it with others so I can kick around the ideas. That way we can discuss how to make make the ideas personalized to each of us.

This book wasn't as revolutionary as the Five Love Languages but it is still having a long-term effect. Aspects of its contents still come to mind quite frequently so it has certainly made an impression and I think it would probably prove beneficial to read it again in a year or so. I think it has impacted my relationship with God, and the way I perceive that, for the better so that is quite a recommendation!
Christine
A wonderful perspective on having relational communication with God. Lots of illustrations and examples help explain what communication with God can look like in your life, making it easier to apply what otherwise can be an abstract idea.

Written in typical Chapman style, which I know bothers some people, but I consider it to be thorough. He wants you to not only understand his point, but be able to use the material he discusses.

Gary Chapman explains from a Christian perspective how God loves us and how we love Him through the 5 languages of love. It was insightful to see why I feel love from God through means that correlate with my love languages. It was also interesting to see why I love certain aspects of worship over others because of how I show love to God similarly to how I show love to others.

Don't like this one near as much and I liked the original but it had a few interesting points about how to feel God's love. The thing that is so fascinating for me is how I've come to believe that we all feel God's love in the same way and I don't believe that anymore. We are all so different and I think it overarches into personal relationships with God too.

A great book that applies Gary Chapman's concept of the five love languages to a person's relationship with God. It provides some insight into others as well as your relationship with God that you might have not otherwise considered. A bit of an eye opener and definitely a blessing to read. I took a lot away from this book and am very glad I took the time to read it.

For me, this particular volume of his love language series solidified the universality of the five love languages in all our relationships. In particular, it helped me to appreciate even more how close our relationship to God can be if we will just pay attention.

Loved the idea of this book and there were plenty of wonderful points. However, it could have been condensed 50%. Very long-winded and too many stories that all sounded the same.

Has a very important message. It is imperative that we saturate God's love so that it streams back out toward others

The idea of love languages is very important in relationships. It is an interesting concept to relate love languages to our relationship with God.

A great book to help remind you about the basics and simple truths. Just love one another and remember how God loved us first! The rest is simple. :-)

This is a great book; I highly recommend it. Would not suggest it if you were trying to discover your own love language though...I could never pinpoint mine to just one.

This book is another great book on the love languages. If you feel that your connection with Deity has been lost, this book is a great book to read.

This book was okay. I hadn't read the original Love Language book, so a lot of it was new, but nothing earth-shattering.

Good insights on opening yourself up to the other love languages (not just your primary), in order to enhance/expand your worship of God.

“In the heart of the teenager, love has to do with connection, acceptance, and nurture. Connection requires the physical presence of the parent and meaningful communication. Acceptance implies unconditional love regardless of the behavior of the teen. Nurture is feeding the spirit of the teen with encouragement and comfort. The opposite of connection is abandonment. The opposite of acceptance is rejection. And the opposite of nurture is abuse—physical or verbal. Any teenager who feels abandoned, rejected, or abused will almost certainly struggle with self-worth, meaning, and purpose.” 0 likes
