Now You’re Speaking My Language from multimillion selling author Gary Chapman (The Five Love Languages) encourages husbands and wives to offer steadfast loyalty, forgiveness, empathy, and commitment to resolving conflict, thus encouraging each other in spiritual growth. With great clarity, 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, and Biblical oneness involves sex, but also intellectual, spiritual,emotional, and social oneness.
I’ve read and applied Dr. Chapman’s marriage resources for years, so I’m always excited when I know another marriage related book is available. As always, Now You’re Speaking My Language breaks down common problems in marriage and gives statistics, stories, Biblical examples and testimonies to share ways to strengthen marriage.
He accomplishes this through easy to understand methods, not too preachy, not too complex. My favorite learning took was identifying the four “fowls.” It’s simple to remember, and as soon as he gave examples, I could immediately think of people and conversations where these fowls were around.
Nuggets like that are sprinkled throughout the book. For that, I recommend married couples take a look and apply what they learn. You won’t be sorry.
