Publisher's Summary

Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limitations.

Have you ever found yourself wondering:

  • Can I set limits and still be a loving person?
  • What are my legitimate boundaries?
  • How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?
  • Why do I feel guilty when I consider setting boundaries?

Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend give you biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing you how to set healthy boundaries with parents, spouses, children, friends, coworkers, and even yourself.

You'll see vital principles of boundaries at work as Drs. Cloud and Townsend take you through a day in the life of "Sherrie", first as she lives with almost no boundaries, then as she begins to apply proper boundaries with others in her life.

    "TOO RELIGIOUS AND FEAR MONGERING!"

    This book is not helpful at all! It talks mostly about Being sinful and the bible. Ridiculous!!!
    I am a spiritual person and I couldn't even get to half of this book because I couldn't stand the bible talk.
    This book has no business being in the self-help/development section since all it does is damage people even more, like most religions do.

    "definitely worth reading"

    I've been listening to these guys on the radio for 12 years and thought I understood the concept of boundaries until I read this book.. It will help all of your relationships.

    "Cannot STAND this mans voice"

    Someone get this old man some water. Can't even finish the book.

    On top of that, everything I've heard so far just says "set boundaries!"

    No shit Sherlock. What do you think I'm already trying to do and looking for guidance on? I already bought the book - spend less timing convincing me to do what I've already decided to do and more time going through practice examples of HOW: ways certain people may react, different approaches for home, work, and friendships. Small blindsides versus large boundaries.

    None of this has come up. It's just "you're supposed to set boundaries" over and over in different phrasing; like a cookbook that just says "try a soufflés!!!" eithout giving a recipe.
