Boundaries in dating by henry cloud
Personal boundaries about respect, values, time, control, and blame and applied in the world of dating made a lot of sense to me and I can certainly see this being an issue in many of the couples and individuals who I have counseled in the past.
Before I saw dating boundary errors only in the sexual realm (which is also discussed) but my view is expanded significantly.
How do you set smart limits on physical involvement? Helping you bridge the pitfalls of dating, Boundaries in Dating unfolds a wise, biblical path to developing self-control, freedom, and intimacy in the dating process. Plus, check out Boundaries family collection of books dedicated to key areas of life - marriage, raising kids, parenting teens, and leadership. Prior to this book I not only did not establish boundaries in my relationships but also didn’t understand the necessity for them.
Respected counselors, popular radio hosts, and bestselling authors Henry Cloud and John Townsend apply the principles described in their Gold Medallion Award-winning Boundaries to matters of love and romance.
I have not read any of the “Boundaries” books before but found this one to be really informative, practical, and Christian. Although there is certainly much in the book about boundaries in dating, this book is really a treatise on Christian dating in general.
It is not just "boundaries" but a philosophy and theology of dating as well.
