In order to call themselves good Christians, many people have drawn overly flexible boundaries (unwilling to say no, always accommodating others' needs) or overly rigid boundaries (to the point of being righteous and judgmental). Psychologists and inspirational speakers Cloud and Townsend show readers how to set reasonable boundaries in order to follow the true path of Christianity. This book has become immensely popular, most likely because it makes personal boundaries easier to define and is filled with spiritual purpose. Some cautions: the format can be overly self-helpish for such a complex discussion and the authors at one point imply that judicious spankings may be an acceptable form of setting boundaries with children. However, many Christians will probably find themselves grateful for this biblical context of boundaries. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend have great insights and practical wisdom into the God-given gift of boundaries. As they discuss how to take responsibility for and ownership of our lives, they give hope that we cannot just survive -- but thrive! --Josh McDowell, Author, Author and Speaker

The other issue is one of an abusive marriage. He talks about putting up boundaries and leaving for the night if these boundaries are violated. This is always done for a short period of time and then the abused spouse returns home. There are situations where this is effective. But in a true abusive situation (physical or mental) it is playing with fire to leave and return over and over. The physical abuser can be deadly. A mental abuser will learn how to better manipulate her victim without his realizing that his boundaries have been violated and thereby twisting reality even further. Any abusive person is not to be trifled with, and without genuine repentance and clear signs of change one is foolish to continue to expose themselves to that risk regardless of history, children, or feelings. For all of his insight, I am shocked that this is not made more clear.
Algunas de nuestras amigas, hijas o madres podrían utilizar los conocimientos y consejos que se explican con ternura en este libro "Limites". Es importante que las mujeres sepan que no es obligatorio ni necesario para que seamos mujeres superpoderes salvando el día para los demás. Algunas veces no es hasta saludable emocionalmente y psicológicamente.
El autor escribe con notas de gracia cristiana y la fe. Espero que esto no se aparta cualquier persona que no es religioso. Este es un tema importante que no debe ser rechazada por razones de religión - utilizar el conocimiento de este libro para vivir saludable en cuerpo y mente.
Muy recomendable. Super.
I purchased this book "Limits" for someone I care very much about. I recommend this book for anyone who always gives and gives and does more and more and feel guilty if they cannot.
Some of our friends, daughters, or mothers could use the knowledge and tips that are tenderly explained in the book "Limits". It is important for women to know that it is not mandatory nor required for us to be 'super women or wonder women"- saving the day for others. Sometimes it is not even healthy emotionally and psychologically.
The author writes with notes of christian grace and faith. I hope that this does not turn away anyone who is not religious. This is an important subject not to be rejected because of religion - use the knowledge of this book to live healthy in body and mind.
