Once readers discover their primary love language in human relationships, they can assume that will also be their primary love language in relationship to God. By teaching readers to tap into divine love, Chapman helps them relate to God in a way that will totally revolutionize their will to love one another.

(Bowker Author Biography)



Most often, one's search for God is influenced by culture. If our culture says, "This is the way to God," then we tend to pursue accordingly. But love is a matter of the heart, the soul, not ritual or religion. I am convinced that each of us has a "primary love language," and when we listen to God in our "heart language," we will experience His love most intimately. I am also convinced that God speaks your "love language" fluently.
