Is your life out of control? Do people take advantage of you? Do you have trouble saying no? Christians often focus so much on being loving and unselfish 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 with 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.

I often run away from self help material but this book will forever change the way you view relationships and people (for the better.)
Boundaries?? What are those??
Wonderful Book. Taught me that I have never really had any boundaries in my life at all. Hence things have been pretty tough... This book has brought light to many dark places in my life... and has showed me that there are such things as boundaries and how I can set boundaries in my life that fall inline with scripture. God never intended for us to be doormats.
Wish I'd read this years ago
Boundaries is an excellent book filled with practical yet profound advice on dealing with people and dealing with oneself. I highly recommend!
