Publisher's Description

Too many of us have invested ourselves into relationships that left us deeply wounded. We've been abandoned or taken advantage of, and left with little to show for what we've given. We've lost our sense of security and personal value in the process. And what's worse, we tend to either repeat the same mistakes of judgment over and over . . . Or else lock the doors of our hearts entirely and throw away the key. Why do we choose the wrong people to get involved with? Is it possible to change? And if so, where does one begin? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer solid guidance for making safe choices in relationships, from friendships to romance. They help identify the nurturing people we all need in our lives, as well as ones we need to learn to avoid. Safe People will help you to recognize 20 traits of relationally untrustworthy people. Discover what makes some people relationally safe, and how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You'll learn about things within yourself that jeopardize your relational security. And you'll find out what to do and what not to do to develop a balanced, healthy approach to relationships.

    What an excellent book! We generally aren't taught who safe and unsafe people are and this really opened my eyes up. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone I know.

    This review was written for Safe People.
    I read this book in 2009 right after a major engagement break up and this book changed my life. I was able to understand why I was attracting the wrong type of people. I learned how to set strong boundaries by recognizing unhealthy relationships before I got involved. I also learned how to look for and attract the right people.

    I am now married to a wonderful man of God as a result of applying these learned principles. And I am now a Ministry Leader in our church, counseling others in God and inter-self wholeness. I have recommended this book to so many people needing healing of bad or broken relationships.

    So Thank you Dr. Townsend & Dr. Cloud for your heart to heal and help the body of Christ and aboard with Truth, Grace & Love!

    Great book. This book really helped me to see and understand friends that really love and accept me unconditionally and those that do not. It also helps to explain how to not be one of those "unsafe" people yourself.

    The principals the authors communicate in Safe People, is without question the most rewarding and fulfilling series I have ever taught. As a church planter who is currently leading a bible study that looks to be sensitive to people who are un-churched, I have found that Safe People not only taps into the felt needs of the un-churched but at the same time challenged those who consider themselves mature Christians to examine their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors. It has also made them see scripture in a way they have never seen it before.

    This is a "must" read for all professing Christians. As a Lay Biblical Counselor and facilitator of a Christian 12-Step Codependency Support Group, I have encouraged all to add this book to their study.
