Robert McGee's best-selling book has helped millions of readers learn how to be free to enjoy Christ's love while no longer basing their self-worth on their accomplishments or the opinions of others. In fact, Billy Graham said that it was a book that "should be read by every Christian."

- Gain new skills for getting off the performance treadmill
- Discover how four false beliefs have negatively impacted your life
- Learn how to overcome obstacles that prevent you from experiencing the truth that your self-worth is found only in the love, acceptance, and forgiveness of Christ
Discover what two million readers have already discovered: that true significance is found only in Christ.
Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask:
- Can I set limits and still be a loving person?
- What are legitimate boundaries?
- What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries?
- How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?
- Aren't boundaries selfish?
- Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries?
Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.
There's no doubt about it. As long as we live on this side of heaven we will face conflict, and be susceptible to anger, broken relationships, rejection, and manipulation.
- learning to establish appropriate boundaries
- achieving a balance between forgiveness and healthy anger
- correctly managing and communicating your anger
- forgiving for the right reasons

She came to the realization she could not please the church people, she could not please her husband, and she could not please God. So, she quit trying. From that point on, my sanguine wife decided to make money and have fun. She did, or at least that’s what it looked like from my vantage point.I began to seek counsel on how to get my wayward wife back on track. Sherri’s uncle Roger told me about a guy name Dr. Talley a while back and I had sent a few people from my congregation to him for marriage help. My marriage was heading south fast, so I decided to make an appointment and take my wife in for a tune-up and a straightening out. It was mid to late June of 2000 when my wife agreed to go to counseling with me. I needed him to straighten her out, because her behavior was starting to affect my ministry. We talked to Dr. Talley for about 45 minutes and when our time for that session was up, he looked at me and said. “Mister, it’s time for you to get your priorities in order, or this sweet lady will end up killing herself.” If you apply the tools in this book to your marriage, your relationship will improve, no matter how good or bad things are.
