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.

    "Life changing insight..."

    Incredible eye opening experience from chapter to chapter. I was hanging onto every word as it applies to all aspects of my life from marriage and family to work and friends. My counselor recommended this book and I am so thankful. I now realize where I have been going wrong and how to change it. As a Christian, I value the biblical references that provided examples of how important boundaries are for a peaceful and joyous life. This book is spot on! Wish I had this 30 years ago. After listening to the audible, I bought the book so I can go back to highlight and internalize it all. This was an easy listen to follow.

    "Life changing book!"

    I loved this book. I had read other codependent books but because I have no alcohol or other addictions they did not fit with me. my therapist suggested boundaries and it has been extremely insightful.

    "Boundaries to experience more freedom in life!"

    I really needed to listen to this! I appreciate the psychology, sociology, and theology that Cloud and Townsend present in this book! I currently work two jobs and am married, so boundaries is critical to having a functional life as well as for stress management.

    I love how they debunk many of the myths people have about setting boundaries and suggest practical ways to implement them. I wish they explored the role compassion and mercy play, as well as making exceptions.

    I would recommend this book to everyone who needs to have a sense of structure in their lives in order to protect the things that really matter. All the best as you create boundaries to experience more of what you want out of life!

    "As Good As I'd Heard"

    After countless people in my graduate counseling program talked up this book and several others recommended it to my wife and me, I finally purchased the audio book. Boundaries is as incredible as others made it out to be. It is fantastic, and now I've joined the recommend-this-book-to-everyone-you-see club. Ha! Seriously, it's a must.
