Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many believers struggle with confusion about appropriate behavior in relationships. "Boundaries Groupware presents a biblical view of what boundries are, what they protect, and how to develop, repair, and use them. By learning to set limits, participants will become more productive, creative, and better servants of God. Based on the bestselling, award-winning book, this curriculum is designed for use with groups of all sizes and utilizes the proven "group-interactive" format. With brief video dramatizations and discussion starters by Drs. Cloud and Townsend, "Boundaries provides everything needed to conduct 9 sessions.

Synopsis:

Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us, mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts, emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own.

Synopsis:

Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances — Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions — Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others — Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator — Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A CHRISTIAN BOOK

I really wanted to read this book - the cover looks great and the content sounds helpful, but I'm really sorry to say that I couldn't get past the Christianity in it. I didn't realize that it was a Christian book when I bought it and am now sorry I did.

DON'T BUY THIS BOOK if you aren't Christian and/or have no interest in reading a book coming from a Christian perspective.

I have nothing against Christianity per se, but after having grown up with, and then grown away from Christianity, I have no desire to read books written from a Christian perspective, and I think that this book makes it hard to detect that perspective at first glance, so that you may not realize it until you've completed the purchase.

This Book--> The Pencil That Will Help You Draw the Lines

Wow, why didn't I ever know about this book? You don't hear much about it- I stumbled upon it browsing around one day. For people wondering if they should buy this book, get it if:

-you're not turned off by a Christian writing approach
-you feel like there's a problem because you're trying to be a good person all the time by always saying "yes"

In a nutshell, this book is for people who don't know how to set boundaries for themselves. In other words, they're always saying "yes" to things and taking responsibility for things- even when it's not their job.

And boundary lines of your responsibilities need to be present in more areas of your life than you might realize, such as...

-your family
-your friends
-your mate
-your kids
-your self

The book covers boundary conflicts in each of these areas leaving no stone unturned. Therefore, its no big deal if you have only one or two problem areas- just go to those sections.

This book will help you realize what a boundary is, why it's okay to have them and just how to develop them. So if anything in this review sounds like if might apply to you- don't hesitate to check out the book. Other neat self-help books I liked include "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World".
