A Teen’s Guide To The 5 Love Languages- My Thoughts.


The secret to great relationships—just for teens

#1 New York Times bestselling book The 5 Love Languages® has sold over 10 million copies, helping countless relationships thrive. Simply put, it works. But do the five love languages work for teens, for their relationships with parents, siblings, friends, teachers, coaches, and significant others? Yes!

Introducing A Teen’s Guide to the 5 Love Languages, the first-ever edition written just to teens, for teens, and with a teen’s world in mind. It guides emerging adults in discovering and understanding their own love languages as well as how to best express love to others.

This highly practical book will help teens answer questions like:

What motivates and inspires me?
What does it mean to be a caring friend?
What communicates love to my family?
What is the best way to get along with the opposite sex?

Features include:

A straight-forward overview of the 5 love languages
A profile/assessment instrument specifically geared to teens
Practical examples/tips for how to apply each language in a teen’s context
Graphics that drive home key concepts
Teens’ relationships matter, and these simple ideas will help them thrive.

Most of my opinions for this book can be summed up into one statement:”Christian, adult authors- teens don’t need pictures and faint Scripture references, they need the Gospel.”

I have to say, this book was a HUGE disappointment.  I was wanting something to grow me and this book was so….stagnant feeling….

Although it was poorly written and quite lacking in humor or depth, I also disliked the lack of spiritual content. Teenagers need more of the Bible; more of Jesus, not less. I’m not saying write a cliche book, with cheesy Christian phrases and over the top Christian references…Just….SOMETHING.

The thing is, Christ is the one to give depth and meaning to media, so without that, what do you have? You have a flat, boring, insignificant bind-up of information.

So, frankly, I can’t recommend this book to teens because I’m not sure how much one will benefit from it. Sorry!
