Publishers Description
Dr. Gary Chapman has spent his life helping people communicate love more effectively and in turn build more satisfying and lasting relationships. His book The Five Love Languages is a regular on the New York Times Best Sellers list--even after being in print for fifteen years--and has made the term "love language" a part of everyday speech.Love Is a Verb takes his teaching to the next level. Rather than a typical marriage self-help book filled with lengthy explanations of principles and techniques, it is a compilation of true stories displaying love in action. These stories--written by everyday people--go straight to the hearts of readers, who often say that illustrations are the most effective parts of a book. Gary Chapman adds a "Love Lesson" to each story, showing readers how they can apply the same principles to their own relationships.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book  May 16, 2010
I actually purchased this copy for a friend, having bought a copy for myself already. Full of great anecdotes, not psychobabble, but just enough interpretation at the end of each anecdote to make you sit back and go, 'huh. I need to apply this lesson'. Easy to read, for those who struggle through typical 'self-help' books.
Enjoyable and Inspiring  May 13, 2010
In his new book, "Love is A Verb," Gary Chapman has collected several short stories about love being lived out. This is different from some of his other books, but this book is great none the less. This is not so much a guide on how to love, although these stories provide teaching points and Chapman does include helpful insights at the end of each chapter. Instead it is a collection of stories about how people have lived out their love for one another. These are not your typical love stories though. These are inspiring stories about how love has changed lives through difficult circumstances. Chapman includes a variety of different situations and shows what can happen when someone decides to live out their love instead of giving up. He does a great job of reminding us with these stories that love is much more than a word. Love is demonstrated through actions and decisions. This book is powerfully written. I highly recommend this book.
Awesome Book !  Jan 11, 2010
I recommend this book to all couples and those who are not a couple.
It is a family book also.
A reminder of what is Love is about.
"And the greatest of these is love..."  Aug 20, 2009
Gary Chapman's compilation gently shares the in's and out's, ups and downs, and challenges of loving in a heart-warming and enlightening manner. The Contributing Authors present practical solutions for constructing a legacy of love in all areas of life. The most appealing aspect is good old storytelling that leaves a imprint on the heart.

The collection simplifies the formula for loving others by reminding that Love is exemplified or hidden by actions, choices, and decisions. The collection is easy on the spirit and shines a light on the true essence of love in everyday life
Chapman Explores What it Means to Choose Love in Your Marriage, Relationships and Life  Jun 29, 2009
"Love means never having to say you're sorry," was a popular expression in the 1970s. But anyone who has ever been married, tried to resolve a family conflict or heal a broken relationship between two co-workers knows that saying couldn't be further from the truth. Love means having to say you're sorry, recognize your own weaknesses, and learn how to overlook others' faults. Love is active, not passive. Love is more of a verb than just a noun.

In his new book, Gary Chapman, bestselling author of THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES, explores what it means to choose love in your marriage, relationships and life --- even when it's not easy. Unlike his previous titles --- many of which are self-help in nature --- LOVE IS A VERB is a collection of 40 real-life stories of everyday people practicing the art of love. Each story is written in first-person and highlights a moment when it was difficult to express or even feel love. Then they share how they reignited their hearts to choose to love once again. Chapman offers a few brief paragraphs of what can be learned from the story.

One particularly moving chapter, "The Changeling," describes a mother who had to learn to love her son twice. The child had captured his mother's heart when he first entered the world, and filled it with joy and delight. But at the age of five, his health began to suffer. Nearly two years later, he had a massive stroke. When he recovered from the coma, the young boy had been transformed from a loving ball of laughter to someone who spewed "I hate you" and "You're dumb and stupid" to everyone he encountered --- including his mother. Overwhelmed by the hostility of her own child, the mother struggled to love her unlovable son. Eventually, he made some improvements and slowly was reintegrated into a program for challenged students at the local school. Over the years, she found herself falling in love with her son all over again, not as who he was but who he had become.

Chapman concludes this powerful story:

"Life happens. The unexpected can occur in any of our lives at any time. Most of us are very cognizant of that fact --- so much so that we may easily fall into the trap of worrying about all the "what ifs" that we someday might have to face. Thankfully, (this story) reminds us that although life happens and tragedies ensue, love has the ability to adapt. Somehow love is flexible and strong enough to step up to the challenges it faces."

While some of the stories describe married couples who have lost that loving feeling, a good portion of the book is dedicated to challenges and trials that emerge in all kinds of relationships. One story describes a family who chooses to deliver hot coffee to some tired, cold rangers as a blessing, while another describes a woman who reconnected with her sisters after years of separation.

Overall, the quality of these stories is solid, but fans of Gary Chapman may find themselves wishing he had contributed more than a four-page introduction and a few paragraphs at the end of each chapter. Recommended to fans of Chapman as well as readers of Chicken Soup for the Soul.
