Publisher's Description

All growth is spiritual growth. Authors Drs. Cloud and Townsend unlock age-old keys to growth from Scripture to help people resolve issues of relationships, maturity, emotional problems, and overall spiritual growth. They shatter popular misconceptions about how God operates and show that growth is not about self-actualization, but about God’s sanctification. In this theological foundation to their best-selling book Boundaries, they discuss: •?What the essential processes are that make people grow •?How those processes fit into a biblical understanding of spiritual growth and theology •?How spiritual growth and real-life issues are one and the same •?What the responsibilities are of pastors, counselors, and others who assist people in growing—and what your own responsibilities are in your personal growth

Publisher's Weekly

Cloud and Townsend, clinical psychologists who are the Gold Medallion Award-winning authors of Boundaries, attempt in this book to chart personal growth from a biblical perspective. Rather than suggesting that real growth happens only to Christians, they argue that most effective therapeutic methods, even those that are ostensibly secular, use biblical concepts. As such, they look to Scripture for the very best strategies for spiritual and emotional growth. While they are critical of a one-size-fits-all approach to human suffering, they do prescribe a combination of prayer, Bible study and regular contact with a "growth group" for virtually every problem they address. The growth groups they describe are populated by healthy, vulnerable people who are willing to confront each other lovingly and own up to mistakes and failures. Cloud and Townsend argue persuasively that such groups facilitate dramatic changes in individuals' lives, but leave the logistical problem of finding such evolved folks to the reader. Perhaps the most radical message of the book is that failure is the norm, even for the most devout. Not only do the authors repeatedly give examples of the best Christians committing the worst sins, but they also insist that such wrongdoing never warrants condemnation from God or other believers. Instead, they argue, sinners must experience total acceptance and love before true repentance and change can occur. This solid, Bible-based argument against guilt and for grace is a powerful elixir for evangelicals who all too often hear the opposite message. (Nov.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    I am so glad I got this book! Its fairly easy to understand. There some slow chapters, that took me awhile to read (I am slow reader), but overall it helped me to understand how to grow and help others to grow. A lot of A-ha moments.

    (Also, I bought a workbook - don't bother with workbook, it was a disappointment, I thought questions were geared for seminary students, not a simple growth group.)

    Excellent book. Very insightful. Lots of wisdom shared. It shows the essential process that make people grow, how those processes fit into a biblical understanding of growth in God & in life, how spiritual growth & real life issues are one & the same, the responsibilities of pastors, counselors, & others like small group leaders (ME) who assist people in growing & your own responsibility for your personal growth. I appreciate the knowledge and wisdom shared to help people grow including myself!
