Love is a Verb: Stories of What Happens When Love Comes Alive by Gary Chapman

This book was not what I first expected, but as I read I really found it enjoyable.  Love is a Verb is a compilation of several short stories written by several different people about their encounters with love.  The stories range from uplifting to bittersweet and all touch on different kinds and aspects of love.  Stories include love for a spouse, child, parent, neighbor, stranger, etc.  They are powerful stories with eye-opening insights and thought-provoking concepts.  I cried and maybe even laughed a little while reading this collection of tidbits right from people's real lives.  Love is something so precious, a true gift we can give to others and receive from others.  God is the ultimate example of what love is and can be and that also shines through in this heartfelt book.  I recommend this treasure of a book for those who are interested in gaining new insights into love through the true-to-life words of people who have come face-to-face with the many facets of what love can be.

This book was provided for review by Bethany House Publishers.
