Selling frenzy for Dr Gary Chapman's 5 Love Languages

Five Love Languages, Dr Gary Chapman, Oprah Winfrey, Oprah's Lifeclass, book Many Australian Christian readers will have first read The 5 Love Languages many years ago and by now have moved through various sequels.

The basic premise of the book is that each person gives and receives love in a different way, and so can be best reached by the love of another if they use the best 'love language'. Author Dr Gary Chapman has conveniently grouped the languages into five main areas. Given the general mysteriousness of love, readers have been snapping up the book for years, looking for answers.

But, according to Publishers Weekly,  that hasn't stopped a selling frenzy now that took the title to the number two position on Amazon this month, thanks to the 'Oprah Effect', years after it first became a New York Times bestseller.

Author Dr Gary Chapman appeared on Oprah's Lifeclass on February 10 and 11 during which Oprah took the love languages quiz to discover her preferred love language. Watch how that turned out on our Creadeo page.

With over 30 years of counselling experience, Dr Gary Chapman is said to have the uncanny ability to hold a mirror up to human behaviour, showing readers not just where they go wrong, but also how to grow and move forward.

He holds BA and MA degrees in anthropology from Wheaton College and Wake Forest University, respectively, MRE and PhD degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and has completed postgraduate work at the University of North Carolina and Duke University.
