Seen. Known. Loved.: 5 Truths About God and Your Love Language

Gary Chapman and R. York Moore. Northfield, $9.99 trade paper (96p) ISBN 978-0-8024-1990-3
Marriage counselor Chapman (The Five Love Languages) and Moore (Do Something Beautiful), national evangelist for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, address Christians who are seeking purpose in their lives in this refreshing guide based on Chapman’s love languages. The authors assure readers that they “are not alone in feeling alone” and explain how to use their specific love language to “find a consistent path to feel God’s love.” Contrasting the power of God’s word with the emptiness of seeking fulfillment through the fleeting acceptance of social media, Chapman and Moore argue that combining righteousness and love will result in actions that help one flourish. Drawing from the biblical story of the prodigal son, they remind readers that God loves them and desires to give them gifts even when they are at their worst. Each chapter concludes with “Refocus” suggestions for applying the authors’ insights—such as telling God directly about one’s love for him, recalling moments where one felt God’s love, and replacing the word “Son” with one’s name in the famous John 3:16–17 verse. This reassuring work will provide direction for Christians looking for a more intimate relationship to their faith. (July)
