Publisher's Summary

Christians often focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limitations, allowing others to take advantage of their kindness. Authors Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer Biblically-based ways to take control of your life and set healthy boundaries with parents, spouses, children, friends, coworkers, and even yourself.
Using the case history of a fictional woman named Sherrie, Drs. Cloud and Townsend illustrate her growth from living with virtually no limitations to applying boundaries with others in her life. In the process, they answer many difficult questions, teaching us how to set limits but still be loving, identify our legitimate boundaries, and say no without feeling guilty. Boundaries is an essential guide for Christians who want to increase their assertiveness without sacrificing the ideals of the Scriptures.

Excellent book!

This is the book for all of us in this day of multi-tasking and exhaustion. It is a book on how to cope with being a people pleaser and running on empty! I loved it and and its accompanying workbook. It includes biblical references and is a wonderfully written book by two experts! Please read it right away -- your life may depend on it.

Great principles

This book has great principles, I agree with what they have to say generally. The story format of teaching is hard for me, but studies show it sinks in more that way. I would recommend this book to people that regularly feel obligated by others.
