Publishers Weekly, 2009-04-13 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.
