About the Book
This especially popular book from the multimillion selling author encourages husbands and wives to offer steadfast loyalty, forgiveness, empathy, and commitment to resolving conflict, thus encouraging each other in spiritual growth.
Quite masterfully, Dr. Chapman shows how communication and intimacy are key points in developing a successful marriage by focusing on these principles:
- Lasting answers to marital growth are found in the Bible.
- Your relationship with God enhances your marriage relationship.
- Communication is the main way two become one in a marriage.
- Biblical oneness involves sex, but also intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and social oneness.
Gary Chapman has written a self-help book for those who are married, be it newlyweds or long time married couples.
Now You’re Speaking My Language focuses primarily on communication and intimacy, with many practical applications and proactive steps for enhancing and/or improving your marriage. Each chapter includes a section of Questions to Ponder, and We Do – a section for couples to do together.
The book is written from a Christian viewpoint and has numerous applicable lessons and Biblical references. However, there are a few aspects, such as those alluding to spousal abuse, that seem a little simplistic.
Nevertheless, I feel this book could be a good tool for couples seeking to improve or enhance their marriage.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
