Drawing fresh insight from biblical principles and real-life stories, Gary Chapman examines the seven biblical pillars of a loving life: kindness, patience, forgiveness, humility, courtesy, generosity and honesty. Once you learn to love like this, your life will never be the same. This prequel to the author's bestselling The Five Love Languages includes self-tests and a discussion guide for churches and ministry groups.

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.
