Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

  • Eye Opening!!

    Why didn't I buy this book a long time ago? It's changing my life. I heard about this book on Dave Ramsey's show, so I totally give him credit for bringing this book and subject to my attention. I want to buy "Boundaries" for everyone I know!

  • Everyone should read by the time they are 25!

    This book is a profoundly life-changing one. It is based on my Biblical Christian belief system, but I believe anyone would benefit greatly by these practical, easy to understand and read, life principles. A friend went to the store to get it upon my recommendation and read 19 pages before she left the parking lot! We are both rereading it right now.

  • Clarifies Lifetime Struggles

    I first heard about this book on the Delilah radio show and took her advice in reading the book. Oh My Gosh! I understand more as to why I¿m having such a difficult time in life. And most of it started in childhood. The authors are able to bring clarity and simplicity to a complicate subject. I am now able to move into the direction of finding a solution to my frictions in life and not allow myself to get catch up in them. If you want to learn to love yourself more, I highly recommend this book. I am so impressed that I'm buying a book for a dear friend.

  • Ok, but I a bit boring

    I bought this book because it was highly recommended to me in a bible study class as a "must read" for parents. I guess I have pretty good boundaries because I found the information personally useless. I could see where it might be good for a few friends of mine. It was quite a bore to read, for me. If you are the type of person who can't say "No" to anyone and you tend to over-commit yourself, this might be useful, but for me, I'll probably sell it on an auction website! Have a great day!

  • Boundaries

    I recommend this book to everyone. I go to a Pia Mellody trained therapist. I have attended several boundary workshops so I found this boundary book for myself and my family. This book is truly a life and money saver. It helps the reader understand when to say "yes" and when to say "no". Our "yes" and ¡°no¡± should come from the heart with no resentment or guilt attached. It helps the reader to understand that when we interfere with the "w of sowing and reaping" we hinder our loved ones growth. Setting boundaries with loved ones is very difficult and this book helps tremendously..t

    I am satisfied with my order. I thought I was ordering the newer version of the book since that's what the description showed. I received the older version, but I'm still satisfied with my order.
