Several of my friends are reading other books in this line the five love languages, etc One of them told me to keep my filter on I ll say This book has a very Christian focus The chapter on forgiveness was pretty much useless to me, as it was mostly let go and let God Would a careful reading of the book jacket have forewarned me Possibly A lot of the examples are also based on Christian morals Man, I thought I had problemsople get upset about some really silly things Note looking at porn porn a [...]
At first I thought this book was going to be tedious I mean, really, how many books is Gary Chapman going to write with 5 Languages in the title So, I didn t expect this book to tell me much As I read it, though, I realized it was rather an important read Effective apologies aren t something overly well taught or conveyed I didn t find the different languages of apology to be all that earth shattering as they seemed a bit straight forward to me However, since the language needed depends a lot on [...]
Age Appropriate For 13 and up some situations discussed Best for Ages 13 and upMy mom recommended this book to me a while back, but I just didn t think about it for a while After all, our family is really good at the whole process We keep short accounts and work through issues My mom and Dad talked about how different people need to hear different things and need different things before the five love language book came out With that said, I hit a situation where I felt my apology was not being h [...]
I was raised a Christian and professed my own choice of the Christian faith at 13 but after reading a slew of Christian help books I can easily understand why people are fleeing the Christian faith in droves This book made me question my own faith after decades decades of dedication.The Worst The absolute two lowest points in the book were the scene where the author speaks of a woman having her jaw broken by her husband and then forgiving him and the scene of the sexually abused daughter Let s s [...]
The Five Languages of Apology is an excellent book that helped me understand repentance and forgiveness better by helping me recognize when others were apologizing to me, and to express my apologies better Some genuine apologies seemed so fake to me, and sometimes other people just didn t seem to get how sorry I was much of this was caused because we were speaking different languages.The five languages are expressing regret I am sorry , accepting responsibility I was wrong , making restitution W [...]
I ve read The Five Love Languages How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate and The Five Love Languages for Singles and appreciate knowing the love languages and knowing what mine are, what my spouse s are, and those of family and close friends My husband and I were discussing the love languages again the other day and went to Chapman s website, where we noticed a quiz for apology languages So we both took it and then I read this book Knowing how we are when we apologize or the type of ap [...]
I really enjoyed the first chapter of this book and agree with the authors that there are various languages of apology I have noticed in my own marriage that at times my husband and I struggle with communicating our apology to one another But within the next few chapters I soon disagreed with the author about the issue of when to forgive I believe that we need to be cultivating a heart of forgiveness and taking our hurt to God so that when someone does apologies we are ready to extend our forgiv [...]
If you have difficulty resolving conflicts with individuals you care about, this book provides the tools to get you started down the path Written in the same style tone as the Five Love Languages by Chapman, this book takes the time to outline, explain, discuss, and give examples of different ways people apologize While it can be very easy to flip through the five different apology styles and think, Yeah, I get it I can understand all of these and don t have to finish reading this whole book , I [...]
N o esperava nada e fui positivamente surpreendida Nunca tinha lido um livro desse modelo principalmente um sobre casamento para o qual eu n o sou o p blico alvo Mas achei muito interessante e muito esclarecedor a leitura de d oportunidade de se conhecer e conhecer aqueles a sua volta B nus incr vel falta de machismo num livro do come o dos anos 90 sobre relacionamentos h teros Recomendo 4,5 stars.
A powerful follow up to The Five Love Languages, I think this one was even useful in improving and maintaining health of my marriage Where The Five Love Languages taught me to understand my spouse, The Five Languages of Apology taught me about myself At times, it was hard to face the realization that I have been exceedingly poor at speaking apologies in such a way that others accept my apology as sincere and heartfelt I always belived that saying you re sorry and meaning it should be enough Lo [...]
The concept in this book is excellent basically that there are 5 elements to apologies and we all desire a different combination of some or all of them to feel as though the wrong doer has actually apologized It really made me think back to arguments that I ve had that involve some sort of meta argument about whether or not an apology has occurred After reading this book, I can confidently say that I believe that the person RECEIVING the apology is the one to decide whether the giver has apologi [...]
Another winner from Chapman and Thomas The five languages of apology was nicely laid out, easy to read, excellent examples and even touched on the Five languaes of love another book The five languages of apology are 1 Expressing RegretExample I am sorry 2 Accepting ResponsibilityExample I was wrong 3 Making Restitution What can I do to make it right 4 Genuinely Repenting I ll try not to do that again 5 Requesting Forgiveness Will you please forgive me The above 5 chapters are brief and excellent [...]
Unfortunately not nearly as good as The Five Love Languages I do think the authors have a point, that there are different languages of apology, but I found it a lot harder to relate to the differences between the languages, and I still have absolutely no clue what my primary language of apology is It s not a book I d want to read in one sitting although that s what I did with TFLL because as it s a book about apology you re automatically made to think of times when you owed others an apology, or [...]
Have you ever had a disagreement with spouse, friend, or coworker and the apology given didn t mend your hurt feelings Or maybe you tried to apologize only to have your apology rejected Possibly your apology didn t match the style of the receiver Gary Chapman and Jennifer Thomas discuss the various apology styles in The Five Languages of Apology Christians Read Books Review
This would have been better if they had deleted 2 3rd of it The concept of apology languages is interesting and valuable The additional religious content was heavy handed and preachy, it did not add to my understanding of the apology languages If you want to avoid most of the religious rhetoric but still get an understanding of the apology languages, just read the first half of the book.
When just sorry isn t enough.
This book was good for helping me realize that someone may sincerely apologize but it may not be perceived as sincere by the person being apologized to I do have an issue with one of the apology languages and also his definition of forgiveness that I don t quite agree with He says that we cannot forgive unless the other person apologizes and asks for forgiveness I don t agree Possibly it s just a difference in wording but he says since God cannot forgive until we have confessed to Him and asked [...]
Am cumparat cartea cu gandul ca este scrisa de psihologul Gary Chapman dar am constatat ca pastorul baptist Gary Chapman este mult ma prezent in sfaturi si pareri Capitolul in care tanara abuzata sexual in adolescenta de tata ei este sfatuita de autor sa il asculte pe Iisus si sa deschida ea dialogul vindecarii si iertarii cu parintii inclusiv cu tatal abuziv si sa isi ceara scuze ca nu a avut contact cu ei multi ani la rand deoarece era ranita de faptele tatalui mi se pare deplasat.
Great book Gave me a lot of insight on how to apologize so that the other person knows you are remorseful and are changing Also now reading the 5 love languages again and realizing how I ve been speaking the wrong language for s a long time.
Great tools for any relationship Second half of the book was redundant.
I embrace how this can help with all relationships I encourage anyone and everyone to read this book.
Read by authors Gary Chapman and Jennifer Thomas
Practical advice for something I wasn t taught growing up The chapter about teaching your kids to apologize was the most meaningful to me.
Over all a very good book with useful, biblical information It was also extremely obnoxious to read as the five languages of, I understand that Chapman is known for his love languages books, but it really made this book feel cheapened by keeping with that theme The parts to the apology are not languages, rather pieces to a good apology, some being important to people than others There were also a LOT of real life examples, almost to the point of overkill Despite knowing the annoying aspects of [...]
The Five Love Languages really has helped me a lot with relating to people, so when I saw the 5 Languages of Apology, I figured I d give it a go It didn t disappoint Now I know what language to speak when offering an apology to different people in my life, and I also know why sometimes an apology offered to me just doesn t seem to cut it because it wasn t spoken in my primary language however, the authors did a good job of helping you see the person apologizing is doing the best they know how I [...]
This is by far one of the best spiritual books I ve ever read I started reading this book with the belief that I was the most forgiving person, but after reading one chapter I realized I that I had much to work on I deeply recommend this book to anyone who is ready to explore yourself.Gary Chapman writes that there are five languages of love words of affirmation receiving gifts acts of service physical touch quality timeThe basis is that you express your love in one or several of these languages [...]
Per Tracey Scholen Just as you have a different love language, you also hear and express the words and gestures of apology in a different language Gary Chapman has teamed up with counselor Jennifer Thomas on this study of the way we apologize, discovering that it s not just a matter of will it s a matter of how By helping people identify the languages of apology, this book clears the way toward healing and sustaining vital relationships The authors detail proven techniques for giving and receivi [...]
Like Gary Chapman s other popular book, The Five Love Languages, this book provides some helpful concepts as relationship tools and is good to read or even just skim at least once but it is not going to solve all your relationship problems This book not only underrates the complexities that exist when you are dealing with years of baggage and trust issues but to my mind it doesn t even get at the core of what is necessary for resolution in some situations I felt like it OVERsimplified a very co [...]
Much like his Five Love Languages, Gary Chapman has helped to develop The Five Languages of Apology Alongside fellow researcher Jennifer Thomas, Chapman explains that people apologize in different ways, and the best way to make your apology meaningful is to apologize in the language of the person you offended Likewise, it is important to recognize your own Apology Language, so that the people in your life will know how best to apologize to you The Five Languages of Apology are 1 Expressing Regre [...]
The five languages are 1 Expressing Regret Needing to hear the words I am sorry and for some people they also need to know that the person understands what they are apologizing for.2 Accepting Responsibility Needing to hear I was wrong and without justification such as I know what I did was wrong BUT you It is the accountability element.3 Making Restitution Needing to hear What can I do to make it right these people like to receive flowers or jewelry or for the person to do the dishes all week l [...]
