Publisher's Description

Dr. Gary Chapman has spent his life helping people communicate love more effectively and in turn build more satisfying and lasting relationships. His book The Five Love Languages is a regular on the New York Times Best Sellers list--even after being in print for fifteen years--and has made the term "love language" a part of everyday speech.

Love Is a Verb takes his teaching to the next level. Rather than a typical marriage self-help book filled with lengthy explanations of principles and techniques, it is a compilation of true stories displaying love in action. These stories--written by everyday people--go straight to the hearts of readers, who often say that illustrations are the most effective parts of a book. Gary Chapman adds a "Love Lesson" to each story, showing readers how they can apply the same principles to their own relationships.

    Publisher's Weekly

    Chapman-author of the bestseller The Five Love Languages-posits that "our culture often seems to have a love-tracked mind." This time he takes his expertise in the area to a more personal level by offering readers 40 stories written by everyday folks who have practiced what Chapman preaches: "love is a verb." Readers will discover a husband and wife who make "I'm sorry" part of their lives; a father who sacrifices coaching basketball to help care for his infant daughter; a university staff member who learns to see an outcast girl through God's eyes; and a mother-in-law who learns to love her son's wife. Chapman follows each story with several paragraphs highlighting a key point that can help in developing healthy relationships, drawn directly from the preceding story. Those who have read and applied Chapman's "love languages" to their lives will find inspiration; newcomers to Chapman's work will find that love takes on many forms and is worth the effort.

    Author's Note

    "To last for the long haul and through the stresses and complexities of life, love has to be more than something we feel. It has to be something we do. We have to demonstrate it concretely in our marriages and families, among our friends and acquaintances, and, yes, even among our enemies.

    And that's what this book is about. In the following pages, you'll see examples of people just like you--like all of us--who learned to take the obstacles, the lemons they face in life, and turn them into satisfying, emotional thirst-quenching nectar. These are the success stories that make you want to go out and try harder."

    --Gary Chapman
