Boundaries - Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend

Boundaries are essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary can define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives.

Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend give a biblically based teaching on how Christians can use boundaries in their life. They answer the tough question and show how we can set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

This book teaches us that as Christians, we can set limits and still be a loving person. We learn that boundaries are not selfish. We learn not to feel guilty when setting boundaries. Have a hard time saying "no" to families and friends? Then this book is for you. But this book is also so much more than just learning to say "no".

This book helped me in a multitude of ways. I really like the fact that the authors use biblical references for boundary development and enforcement. I also appreciated how they used real life examples of people who have boundary issues, and then gave practical advice on how to resolve conflicts in all relationships. I highly recommend this book.
