Discussion Questions

A SAMPLE OF THE QUESTIONS FOUND IN Love As a Way of Life

To begin the guide, consider this question: When you love others, do you believe you are loving God? Why or why not? You might want to keep this question in mind as you discuss the seven traits of a loving person. God’s help in loving others is always available to us because he cares so deeply about others receiving and reciprocating his love.

Kindness: Discovering The Joy Of Putting Others Before Yourself

Further Bible reading: Jeremiah 31:1–6; Joel 2:13; Luke 6:32–36; Romans 2:2–4; Ephesians 4:29

The apostle Paul said the love of God is “expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:7–8). The pattern is clear. The kindness that God shows toward us is what motivates us to be kind to others. Paul spoke of this when he said, “At one time we…lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy” (Titus 3:3–5). While kindness does not come naturally, we have the perfect model of God’s kindness in Jesus. The Holy Spirit is at work in us to express Christ’s kindness through us.

Editorial Reviews

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.”

    I bought this book intending to use parts of it for a retreat and I am not only using parts of it, I'm using ALL of it and everyone at the retreat (plus a few others) have or will have a copy of this book. It really makes you think about those seven keys...

    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.
