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.

    "A wonderful and important book"

    Great advice on forming healthy relationships. Makes me look at life completely different. I really enjoyed the Bible references and examples. They were very helpful.

    I didn't really enjoy the reading of the book. I felt that he made women sound weak and stupid.

    Highly recommend for the great information.

    "Very insightful"

    This book helped me realize that I had boundary issues that I wasn't aware of. It is a very long book, but I found most of it useful.

    "Practical and helpful"

    A friend recommended this book to me. I'm so glad I got it. I loved listening to it on audible! The examples were so practical and made it easier to apply the principles. I felt like I was at counseling without having to go to counseling. I definitely recommend this book!!

    Story
    "New Narration Needed"

    Narration seemed patronizing towards women, as if he was intentionally portraying any and all female dialogue as being mousey, airy, annoying, desperate, or distraught. Fredricks was an unfortunate choice. Book had some really good points, but was a bit redundant. If it doesn't already exist, would love to see a shortened summary with less time spent on storytelling and more on conclusive content.

    "My top ten books helps so much. Read over 4 times"

    I will read this book again and again because there is so much to it. God really does an inside job and this book helps a lot to see that.

    "great advice, bad exegesis"

    the ideas and advice surrounding boundaries in this book were very helpful, especially in helping me think about my childhood and relationships with family, as well as generating good conversations with my wife. however, I was disappointed by the theology and poor exegesis in the book, but I would recommend that Christians read it for the helpful ideas surrounding boundaries in our lives.
