Love Speaks

In the list of books that have changed my life, you would find "The Five Love Languages" from Gary Chapman.  And it's going to stay on that list... but I also think it needs to be read with open eyes to what Jesus is calling us towards with discernment.

How do we learn to sort out good from bad amid the messages that bombard us?  It's easy to state the goal: "eat the fish of truth, spit out the bones of lies."  It's hard to do this well.  All of us tend to either swallow bones because we love fish, or spit out fish because we hate bones. -Powlison
So... after you read Chapman - or even before - take a look at David Powlison's critique.
