Publisher Description


Relationships are wonderful . . . until they're not.

Stop the dysfunction of unhealthy relationships and learn biblical ways to set boundaries--and, when necessary, say goodbye.

Is it unloving or selfish to set a boundary with family members or friends? Are Christians ever called to walk away from a relationship that’s no longer safe or sustainable? #1 New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst deeply understands these hard questions in the midst of relational struggles.

After thousands of hours of counseling intensives and extensive theological research that transformed the way she defined healthy relationships, Lysa is now more committed than ever to loving people well without losing the best of who she is.

In these pages, Lysa will help you:
Understand the five factors to remember when implementing healthy boundaries.Determine the appropriate amount of personal and emotional access someone has to you.Stop being misled and emotionally paralyzed by wrongly interpreted or weaponized Bible verses that perpetuate unhealthy relationships.Be equipped with effective boundary-setting tools, such as realistic scripts and practical strategies for healthier communication.Be empowered to say goodbye without guilt when a relationship has shifted from difficult to destructive.Receive therapeutic wisdom you can trust directly from Lysa’s Christian counselor Jim Cress, who weighs in throughout the book.
You'll be relieved to learn that boundaries aren't just a good idea, they're a God idea.

A lot of good but also a lot of error

I like the idea of good boundaries and goodbyes, but this is geared more toward women who have been through traumatic experiences in marriage and friendships. It’s not showing how to properly heal from situations in life, but rather the writer’s life and how they needed to have boundaries to heal.

I agree that we all need boundaries in our lives, but we also need to be careful in not overlooking scripture or misusing it. She speaks of this, yet there are scriptures she leaves out and some she takes out of context.

There is no pastoral voice in this book. She mentions speaking to a pastor maybe twice. The rest of the time she speaks of receiving counsel from a therapist, counselor, friends, and family, but not your pastor. This is very gangrenous seeing that there is no spiritual authority guiding or leading you. She leans a lot on her counselor for help.

Great ideas that can and should be implemented, but not all considering she is still very wounded and needs to find healing. I pray she does!
