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.

Awful audio

Would you try another book from Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend and/or Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend ?

Probably a decent book, but someone else needs to read it or the volume needs to be adjusted. I can hardly hear it from my iPod or my buds. It is awful in that respect.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Be able to actually hear the book being read.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Could not even hear him. This book needs to be redone.
