Publisher's Summary

How do you know you're ready to trust again ... and what does it take to be ready?

Painful relationships violate our trust, causing us to close our hearts. But to experience the freedom and love God designed us for, we eventually have to take another risk.In this breakthrough book, bestselling author Dr. John Townsend takes you beyond the pain of the past to discover how to re-enter a life of intimate relationships. Whether you're trying to restore a current relationship or begin a new one, Townsend gives practical tools for establishing trust and finding the intimacy you long for.

Beyond Boundaries will help you reinstate closeness with someone who broke your trust; discern when true change has occurred; reestablish appropriate connections in strained relationships; create a safe environment that helps you trust; and restore former relationships to a healthy dynamic. You can move past relational pain to trust again. Beyond Boundaries will show you how.

Incredible book

This is an incredible book for anyone who has dealt with needing to put pretty intense boundaries around oneself to protect themselves from another person's actions when do you know to move forward how do you know that it safe to move forward in that relationship or being able to trust others to be able to move forward, how do you know that they're trustworthy? How do you know that it's time to move forward? I have found this book to be very helpful in answering those questions, I hope that you learn a lot about yourself and others as you read this book and move forward in your own personal growth in this season of your life.

Beyond Boundaries

Wonderfully written; easy to read; and the principles are simple to apply.

I love the Christian-based approaches offered and the strategies given. I absolutely recommend this book and the authors previous book, Boundaries.

Worth Every Penny!

This book is packed full of useful information! The author has a pleasant voice and does not waste the listeners' time repeating himself or with fluff (i.e.; when an author spends the first six chapters of a book telling you what to expect to learn, then repeating themselves as a way of filling up space). The book is refreshing, does not insult your intelligence and keeps the listener engaged. I found his Bible references insightful, however someone who is not a Christian may not. Also, I like how he backs up his talking points with real life examples.
