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.
Dr. John Townsend is a psychologist, popular speaker, and cohost of the nationally broadcast New Life Live! radio program, and a cofounder of Cloud-Townsend clinic and Cloud-Townsend Resources. He has written or co-written 27 books, selling over six million copies, including the bestseller Boundaries. He is also the author of Boundaries with Teens and Hiding from Love. He and his wife, Barbi, live in southern California. They have two grown sons.

This book has been quite the blessing to me. It has enlightened me as to what all areas of my life require boundaries. From physical (skin or distance) to spiritual (God and me) to literally the words I say and the choices I make, this book has challenged me to look at everything I let into my life with a new perspective.
Q: Does this book have discussion questions?
No, this book does not have discussion questions.
Q: Is this book same as mine? Sorry if this is a seemingly illiterate question, but my copy of this book has a different cover. I would like to lead a small group study and they would be getting their books/workbooks from here. The ISBN numbers are an exact match, as are the titles, does that make it safe to assume they are one in the same, with only different covers? Your help is greatly appreciated. May God bless you!
Yes - publishers can often change a cover, but if the ISBN matches it will be the same book.
