Have been teaching the DVD small group version, and several group members wanted a print copy of the book-some for themselves, some as gifts for others. It is a powerful tool for empowering people to own their lives and hold themselves and others accountable for actions. I highly recommend everyone read this; while much of it may not directly apply to you, it will give you the understanding of others in your life.
Demands seek to invade our lives every day. They come from friends, family and even ourselves, and they seek to consume our time, talent and treasure. A healthy, God-centered life requires us to filter through these demands and determine which to take on and which to pass up; the goal is to always embrace the tasks we should, while never undertaking the ones we should avoid, even though they seem to be valid needs. Boundaries is a thorough review of the why, when and how of setting limits properly and gives examples of the consequences of not doing so. By learning these concepts our lives can be more honoring to God and a benefit to ourselves and those around us.
It took me awhile to get through the whole book because it was so full of information that I wanted to absorb, but it has taught me a whole new way of looking at the importance of boundaries & carrying them out. As a person with fuzzy boundaries, it opened my eyes in many ways. I was afraid to carry thru so many times...but this book has taught me how God looks at boundaries and the importanc of carrying them out. I felt like this book could have been written directly to me. I would recommend it very highly.
Our small group purchased 2 products: the DVD and participate guide (small book to go with dvd). I ended up purchasing the book and workbook. I've read the Boundary book long time ago and loved it. Our small group wanted to learn about boundaries. We didn't want something that had a lot of homework and my group likes DVD lessons. The DVD and Listener guide was a huge disappointment. I ended up re-writing the lessons because most of the questions didn't even make sense. I would only get the book and workbook
It's an eye opening book revealing areas in our lives where we lack personal boundaries and how that effects our relationships with others. It also gives you understanding of the behavior of people you interact with on a daily basis and meeting their expectations of you and your expectations of them. This book holds the key to better relationships. It's a must reading for everyone who wants to understand themselves and others and to grow in personal relationships.
