A few years ago a professing christian recommended this book to me because she discerned I needed help with setting boundaries. I read this book and really appreciated the scriptures and that they show the biblical principles behind what they teach in the book. We all need to learn how to set boundaries in our life and what love is -- that we are not called to be "doormats" for Christ. The greatest commandment is to love and we need God to give us understanding on what that means. With the help of the Holy Spirit and discernment, this book really helped me. I still need to go over it and reread it. I think it is a book that will be useful for more than one reading as you put it into practice. Above all we should pray and ask God to guide us in all things we read.
This is a little bit heavy for my simple mind. I'm a slow reader and that makes it tougher. But as I get deeper into it, the more I want to read. Boundaries is something I really need help with. Everyone needs a copy of this in their library. Its a keeper for me, and I will read it over and over again.
