God Speaks Your Love Language
Gary Chapman
Northfield, February 2009

Wherever you experience the love of God, it is always personal, intimate, and life changing. The key to learning and choosing love is tapping into divine love. The craving for love is our deepest emotional need. We feel love and are drawn to others when they speak love in a way we understand. This same principle applies to the most important relationship—our relationship with God. Did you realize that the God of the universe speaks in your love language, and that your expressions of love for him are shaped by your love language? Learn how you can give and receive God’s love through the five love languages—words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service and physical touch. Dr. Chapman’s goal for readers is that they may be led to explore the possibility of speaking different love languages to God, and thus expand their own understanding of God and others.
