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.

    "Difficult to absorb first time through"
    Any additional comments?

    Because of the nature of this non-fiction category, I believe if is better to have the hard copy for highlighting and ease in finding and remembering significant facts and descriptions in the material.

    Story
    "Very good!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Boundaries to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the printed version of this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It gives very pointed and practical advice about creating and maintaining boundaries. Too many references to the bible but the advice is sound.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It was a good audio book overall

    "non religious readers beware!!!"

    well, I dont write reviews..but I am so angry..Im writing this one. This book is written in a very very religious tone, full of bible quotes and examples.. so if thats your thing great. But if not, do yourself a favor and pass this one by. I thought this was a self help/self discovery book, but it is so convoluted and full of religious overtones, it is absolutely miserable to pull any sane advice out of it.
    All that aside, the other problem is the reader sounds like he is reading excerpts to a class full of kindergardeners in his best Sesame Street voice. It absolutely made my blood boil. If there is any good advice contained in this book, you will have to wade through all the religion and get past the annoying narrator to find it..I just threw $26 out the window...

    "maybe better in print"

    I truly appreciate Cloud & Townsend in their satellite broadcasts, and I was enthusiastic to pick up this book. However, it was one that I struggle to stick with in audio format.

    When topics are close to what I accept directly, it is difficult for me to latch on to a thread and take something away... it is then that I prefer printed books, so that I can read more deeply, go back to a section easily and underline or make notes. This could be one of those books for me - I struggle to keep my thoughts on topic even while the subject seems important.

    Story
    "This book changed my life"
    What made the experience of listening to Boundaries the most enjoyable?

    I could appreciate the combination of psychology and human development with biblical scripture. The balance between the two methods helped to identify the healing process of developing boundaries as a spiritual process as well as a relationship process.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dick Fredricks?

    I would have casted additional narrators for the female portrayals


    What did you learn from Boundaries that you would use in your daily life?

    I would like to thank the authors of this book. I never considered the out of control aspects of my life as my own responsibility. I am practicing what I've learned, and though it is difficult, it has been necessary. In today's society I think this book is a must read (listen) for everybody.
