This book is wonderful to use to pull out the major points of text book, boundaries. This book is excellent to use for the leader leading a Bible study group. I also used the dvd companion. This was excellent and have a spot to pause to engage the group for discussion. This is excellent and will allow your class the opportunity to become transparet and see the need for biblical and wholesome boundaries in our lives.
Kay Hay5 Stars Out Of 5This is important for a legacy and a great life.March 12, 2012Kay HayQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a subject that needs to be part of every Christian's education. Setting Boundaries is an important part of the Love your Neighbor and Obedience and Repentance, and Forgiveness part of life, which God has asked us to put into action in our lives. As soon as we adults have this working for us, we need to start with the children and work up to the Patriarchs in our families to develop boundaries that are God given, and strive to honor God in this special way.

Dianna Boehm5 Stars Out Of 5November 27, 2009Dianna BoehmThis is a great study to do with a small group or Sunday School - - it is especially great for those that have the high gift of 'mercy' - to be able to declare boundaries in your own personal life & feel free to say the word 'no'...
Robert Hyche4 Stars Out Of 5September 28, 2009Robert HycheWhen I first saw the title Boundaries I thought it seemed a bit negative. Of course the subtitle When to say Yes, how to say No helped me a little bit. The good doctors, Cloud and Townsend, do what only good counselors do they make you think. But they make us think within a Biblical framework and direct us to setting our minds and hearts in a Godly orientation. Perhaps that sounds too basic, but as in sports, life is not about feeling the right away about the game. The hard work is done in blocking, tackling, and kicking. Its so simple that its hard. And only the very best teams do all those well. The same is true in our personal lives. We must give ourselves to learning how to block, tackle, and kick in life. This book sets us on a path to do just that.Whether you own a Mac or a PC, your computer is bound to lock up (yes, even Macs lock up every now and then). When this happens, you have to press reset or perhaps unplug it. The book, Boundaries, asks us to press the reset button in our hearts and come back to the basics of living. When we reorient our thinking and doing around God-given principles, our own giftedness, and our heart-felt passion then we can begin to say yes to those things God has prepared in advance for us. But in order to say yes to something good, we have to say no to something else. That something else might also be a good thing. But of course as you know, the enemy of the great is the good.Too many people have said yes to church programs, stale religion, and the dreams of others. Its time for the people of God to get Gods vision for them and say, YES to that!
