Description

This New York Times bestselling and award-winning book helps listeners set healthy boundaries in order to be the loving people God created and now offers a whole new chapter.

Are you in control of your life?

Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limits and limitations. Have you ever found yourself wondering: Can I set limits and still be a loving person? How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? Why do I feel guilty when I consider setting boundaries?

In this Gold Medallion Award-winning book and New York Times bestseller, Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend give you biblically based answers to these and other tough questions and show you how to set healthy boundaries with your parents, spouses, children, friends, coworkers, and even yourself. This updated and expanded edition specifically addresses boundaries in the digital age, online dating, single parenting, and the workplace.

Boundaries are personal property lines that define who you are and who you are not, and influence all areas of your life – physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually.

Unpacking ten laws of boundaries, Drs. Cloud and Townsend show you how to bring new health to your relationships. You’ll discover firsthand how sound boundaries give you the freedom to walk as the loving, giving, fulfilled individual God created you to be.

    Like a big chunky chewy juicy steak that you need to chew a lot. A whole lot. Crammed with needed advice for me and my life.

  • (2/5)
    It might be a good book, im not sure, but I personally couldn’t finish it. Practically every sentence is “backed” by bible. Every other sentence is “chapter … verse …” . After some time it gets really annoying. Also the whole idea to back up the book with bible seems a little extra. There aren’t any case studies or psychological approach to it, just verses of bible after every sentence.

    Needed this book badly to break the cycle of guilt for the poor boundaries that I’ve made around myself.
