In a similar vein as his other books on love languages, best-selling author and marriage counselor Gary Chapman tackles the complex topic of apologies. With psychologist Jennifer Thomas, Chapman describes the five languages of apology: expressing regret, accepting responsibility, making restitution, genuinely repenting, and requesting forgiveness. That what constitutes a genuine or sincere apology differs between people is not an earthshaking conclusion, but one that is perhaps too often overlooked. The Five Languages of Apology provides you with descriptions of each apology language, a way to discover your own apology language, ways to forgive and how to apologize in the workplace, in relationships, with your family members and to yourself.
Gary Chapman is a counselor, minister, and author of the Five Love Languages series. He is a graduate of Moody Bible Institute, Wheaton College, Wake Forest University, and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and regularly preaches at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, NC.
