Publisher's Summary

Now You're Speaking My Language is the anticipated paperback edition of Gary Chapman's 2004 Gold Medallion award winner, Covenant Marriage. This especially popular book from the multimillion selling author encourages husbands and wives to offer steadfast loyalty, forgiveness, empathy, and commitment to resolving conflict, thus encouraging each other in spiritual growth.

Quite masterfully, 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.
  • Biblical oneness involves sex, but also intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and social oneness.

    It was a very informative book, a bit dry at times

    It was a very informative book, a bit dry at times due to the narrators style, but well worth the time. I have been applying the principals taught here to my own marriage with very good results. I find that relistening to this over and over helps best, until it sinks in.

    So helpful!

    This was just what I was needing to hear. I have a wonderful and healthy marriage but still have things and ways of thinking and communicating that needed work and this was so helpful! A good reminder of things I knew before as well but had gotten in a rut of not practicing as well. Thank you!!

    Corrective Lenses!

    My eyes on marriage were given corrective Lenses!
    I absolutely appreciate the understanding I now have of a Contractual Marriage and a Covenant Marriage.
    Excellent narrator. The speed of his reading was perfect and not at all monotone.

    Excellent read with practical guidelines!

    This book by Gary Chapman has been wonderful to listen to! He engages the audience well and he gives practical guidelines throughout the book to help in many specific areas of your marriage!

    I gave this book four stars due to my disagreement with Mr. Chapman's opinion on staying in an abusive marriage (he discusses this in one of the first chapters on covenant marriage). At first I thought that I must have miss heard or misunderstood what the author was saying. After research I found that Mr. Chapman truly does advise spouses that are being abused to stay in the relationship. Yes with help, but, because of his view on covenant marriages he does not agree with dissolving the marriage in any case. I understand that this is simply my opinion, however, I could not in good conscience give this book 5 stars because of this opinion.

    However! Outside of this one disagreement with Mr. Chapman. I fully support this book and how wonderful the advice and the engagement with the audience is!

    Lots of Bible verses

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Too many Bible verse quotes for me, but still a good book.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Gary Chapman? Why or why not?

    Yes

    Did Now You're Speaking My Language inspire you to do anything?

    Better communication, seeing both sides, a few good simple steps to get there.

    Any additional comments?

    I thought Desperate Marriages and Five Love Languages were MUCH better!

    This is too religious for me. I did not realize it would be so "biblical". I would like a refund. I listened to chapter 5, I think, giving it a chance. Mr. Chapman, the author, narrates this and has a nice voice.
