Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Listeners in all types of marriages will be encouraged by this winning relationship guide from speaker and author Gary Chapman. Extending the practical wisdom found in his "love languages" books, he explains how to create all the types of intimacy that a strong marriage needs. Chapman's Christian foundations are obvious, but it's the sophistication and helpfulness of his thinking that are the most memorable characteristics of his work. He offers outstanding insights and advice on communication styles that are too passive, too domineering or critical, too logical or emotionally blunted, and too avoidant or unresponsive. Chapman's enjoyable speaking style is down-to-earth. He's a comfortable and humble authority who takes a backseat to his faith and to a plethora of immensely useful ideas."

The secret of successful marriage is communication. Communication is the blood veins of the marriage, ensuring that every element receives nourishment, refreshment and protection. With Jesus Christ as the heart of the marriage, He ensures that the marriage continues to have life. However, when communication is severed, some elements begin to lack food and oxygen and they begin to die. Dr. Gary Chapman is the award winning, multimillion bestselling author of several books on marriage, including the critically acclaimed The 5 Love Languages® series. In his latest offering, Now You're Speaking My Language, Dr. Chapman addresses the importance of communication in marriage.  They are different levels of communication in marriage, understanding each level helps in ensuring that we strive for the highest level of communication that can nurture intimacy in marriage. Dr. Chapman also discusses the types of communication common in marriages which are wrong, but many people have adopted since they have been modelled for them as they grew up by the people they loved. Finally, Dr. Chapman devotes the rest of the book on the importance and development or facilitation of intimacy in marriage. My Recommendation Reading this book and discussing the key things I learnt with my wife, did not only expose the deficiencies in communication we had, but helped me with a starting point. We have been married for only three years, but our communication was terrible, we discovered. The most important lesson we learnt was, in order for our communication with each other to improve, our communication with God have to improve first. I recommend this book to anyone married or planning to get married. This book is a great resource for couple's meetings. NB: I received this book free from the publisher.

Gary Chapman explains the importance and intricacies of communication in healthy marriages. Now You're Speaking My Language is full of simple, yet profound advice useful to couples at every level of marital bliss. Whether you are struggling in your marriage or feel completely satisfied, this title is completely worth the time and energy to invest in your relationship. Much like Chapman's "5 Love Lanugages," the concepts discussed in this book articulated situations and emotions I could relate to and simple solutions for a more open and intimate marriage relationship. So many couples enter into marriage without learning the importance of purposeful communication. I'm looking forward to reading this title with my husband but even if he never read a word of it, I know that our relationship will benefit from the improvements I can make in the way I communicate with him. I requested this book from the publisher through NetGalley in order to read it and offer an honest review. The opinions expressed are my own.

You've always wondered what it takes to understand the opposite gender. What on earth is that person you married thinking? What does a woman mean when she says one thing, while a man means something entirely different by saying the same thing? And how can you learn the communication techniques necessary to hear your significant other and be heard by that person, too? Renowned Christian author Gary Chapman (of THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES) offers insightful, Biblically based answers in his nonfiction work NOW YOU'RE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE. Chapman contends that success in marriage means communication combined with intimacy, and that four principles will provide that foundation so that neither spouse feels ignored, unappreciated, or overlooked. Those four principles are underscored by his belief that the Bible is the final word on marriage according to God's design and that a close, personal, and growing relationship with God is vital to the stability of a marriage. This work is eminently readable, well-researched, and approachable, like all of Chapman's books that I've had the privilege of reading. Its explanation of the five levels of communication, from surface-level talk to the deepest and most intimate conversations possible, left me openly pondering my own current relationships, whether romantic or platonic, to learn whether I could find ways to improve my communication and listening skills with others. Chapman speaks with authority, patience, and compassion, having "been there" himself with his wife in their marriage. His anecdotes and personal stories are heartening and refreshing reminders that we all have room to work on ourselves and our relationships with God and others, whether we've been married for one day, one year, fifty years, or are yet single. Thought-provoking and closely written, NOW YOU'RE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE is a read I can highly recommend. # # # Author: Gary Chapman Title: NOW YOU'RE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE Publisher: B&H Group ISBN: 978-1-43368-301-8 Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this work from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily positive, review.
