Gary Chapman believes that a healthy marriage is one in which two partners grow toward one another--and good communication is essential to that growth. This has been the message of Pastor Chapman's popular radio program, "A Growing Marriage," as well as his books, videos, and seminars. In THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES, he acknowledges that any two people may give and receive love in very different ways. He identifies five "languages," or ways of communicating affection: Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch. He explains each, showing couples how an appreciation of their partner's "language" can make communication possible, strengthen the love bond, and lead to a growing marriage. THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES was first published in 1992, and has been a perennial seller ever since.
