Item description for Five Languages Of Apology w/Study Guide by Gary D. Chapman & Jennifer Thomas...

With this easy-to-follow and quickly applicable communication tool, bestselling author Gary Chapman teams with counselor Jennifer Thomas to explore the different languages of apology for a whole new audience.

Publishers Description

Just as you have a different love language, you also hear and express the words and gestures of apology in a different language. "New York Times" best-selling author Gary Chapman teamed with counselor Jennifer Thomas on this groundbreaking 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 receiving effective apologies.
You'll learn the five languages of apology:

  • Expressing regret
  • Accepting responsibility
  • Making restitution
  • Genuinely repenting
  • Requesting forgiveness

Hardcover edition.

From The Book Jacket

When our granddaughter Davy Grace was five years old, her mother and father allowed her to spend a special week with her grandparents. Karolyn and I were elated. The week was great fun. But one experience is indelibly printed in my memory. Karolyn has a special drawer where she keeps “stickers” for the grandchildren. Davy Grace, of course, knew about this special drawer and asked her grandmother if she could have some stickers. Karolyn told her that she could have three; any three she chose.
An hour or two later, we began to see stickers all over the house. Davy Grace had taken the entire sheet of stickers and placed them randomly. Karolyn said to her, “I thought I told you to take only three stickers, but you have taken the whole sheet.”
Davy Grace stood in silence as her grandmother continued. “You disobeyed Grandmother.”
Tears cascaded down Davy Grace’s face as she said, “I need somebody to forgive me.”
I shall never forget those words nor the pain which I saw in her young face. My tears joined her tears as I embraced her and said, “Honey, all of us need somebody to forgive us.”
—From The Five Languages of Apology

From Publishers Weekly
Chapman, author of the bestselling The Five Love Languages, teams up with psychologist Thomas for thoughtful dissection of another tricky subject. Chapman and Thomas choose to tackle the apology because, as with love, understanding it is essential for developing, maintaining and repairing relationships. Apology, however, covers a much broader scope, applying to all varieties of relationships, from the deeply personal connection between intimate partners to the formal relationships between nations. Chapman and Thomas's basic observation that we don't all agree on what constitutes a sincere apology is perhaps not surprising, but it may, as they show, help couples who can't resolve arguments because their apologies aren't accepted. The authors stress that you need to learn the "language" of the person you are apologizing to: for one person, it may be expressing regret, while for another it's accepting responsibility or making restitution. Especially useful is the chapter that helps readers learn which language of apology feels most sincere to them. Chapman and Thomas are most apt when they seek to repair relationships not with large ideas but with simple basics that are too often taken for granted. (Sept.)

Wonderful Book!  Apr 22, 2008
We are teaching this book in our Young Married class and I think it is a wonderful book. Many in the class have said the knowledge in the book is invaluable. I can't recommend this book enough. All couples should read this book...
Must Read  Apr 6, 2008
Everyone has been wronged and done done wrong to others. Appoligising is not being weak. It is admitting that we are human and make mistakes. This book helped me to show that I am truely sorry for what I have done. It showed me how to let the other person know that I am sincere. It also helped to truely forgive.
READ this!  Mar 31, 2008
This book was revolutionary to me. If you are considering purchasing it, do so and read it! What a concept, that we need to apologize in a language that the person receiving the apology can hear it and accept it.
Hope comes in the form of a book  Mar 23, 2008
I've been waiting for(needing)this book for years and years. Being involved in relationships where apologies were rare, and from parents who never did, this book will change the way I approach my future relationships. This, paired with the Five Love Languages, is a must read. Too bad they don't teach this kind of stuff in High School. This pair of books would be a perfect graduation or wedding gift. Jim from Florida.
Not Love Languages...   Mar 18, 2008
This book did not live up to my expectations after reading "The Five Love Languages". I would rate it a 6 on a scale of 10 positive. It used far too many illustrations to make the point and made reading it more a labor than a joy. It could have been published in fewer pages and carried greater impact because the points are valid.
