Publisher's Description

Each day involves countless interactions with others–not only among family and friends but also with neighbors, coworkers, even telephone solicitors. An attitude of love may ot be your top priority in some of these encounters. But what if the ancient maxim “love your neighbor as yourself” applied to everyone, including those you meet in the most ordinary circumstances?

By giving love, instead of grabbing for it, you’ll become the person others want to love in return, no matter what their role in your life.

Relationship expert Dr. Gary Chapman applies the seven characteristics of authentic love to family life, friendship, the workplace, and beyond. Eye-opening personal assessments uncover relational strengths and weaknesses, while real-life stories and ideas for building habits of love will inspire you to grow into the complete person you were meant/created to be.

Capture a vision that will transform your relationships and make your corner of the world a better place–by choosing Love As a Way of Life.

Includes questions for personal reflection or group discussion.

Publisher's Description

Gary Chapman struck a huge nerve with his book The Five Love Languages. Readers appreciate the simplicity and practicality of learning to speak their mate's love language. Looking back, Dr. Chapman acknowledges that it's difficult to speak anyone else's love language unless you first become a loving person. And as a Christian, he understands that what makes us loving people is living according to the teachings of Scripture¬ especially the seven biblical pillars of a loving life.

In Love As a Way of Life, Dr. Chapman has written the "prequel" to his runaway bestseller The Five Love Languages. In his new book, he takes a step back and examines the ingredients that combine to produce a loving person. The ingredients are taken straight from the Bible, and the result is a person for whom love becomes habit-forming.

Editorial Reviews

Advance Praise for LOVE AS A WAY OF LIFE

“Chapman follows up his five-million-copy bestseller The Five Love Languages with this wise, heartfelt guide to cultivating seven traits that lead to loving relationships. Whereas his work on love languages explored the primary ways people give and receive love, this book explores the nitty-gritty of an entire "attitude of love," with chapters on kindness, patience, forgiveness, courtesy, humility, generosity, and honesty. Each chapter includes quizzes, questions for reflection, and ideas for applying that chapter's teachings. All self-help books run the risk of cliché, but Chapman manages to make tried-and-true material feel fresh through carefully chosen examples from his pastoral counseling practice and his own life…. This book is head and shoulders above the bulk of self-help literature precisely because it is not about ‘self’ so much as helping others.”

    This is a practical book written for an audience beyond just Christians. For what it is, I think it accomplishes that goal well - Normally I'd prefer to see application that's clearly linked to scripture, and the links aren't completely clear, although that certainly doesn't mean the book is unscriptural (definitely the opposite!). A really good follow-up and next level for those who liked Five Love Languages.

    This book is organized so that the reader can use it as a guide with a group study or while working on his/her own self-improvement. Written in a straight-forward, interesting manner, it's a worthwhile read.
