“As I read Boundaries, I kept fighting back the gnawing feeling that the whole trajectory of my life would have been different and better had I read this book twenty years ago.”
“I have recommended the book, Boundaries, to my radio show listeners about ten times a week for the past two decades. Now I’m fired up to recommend Boundaries for Leaders just as often to those looking to grow in their leadership role at work. I’ve been waiting on this book for twenty years!”
“I found Boundaries to be extremely helpful to me and my family. The authors illustrate real-life examples of people who have boundary issues and give practical advice on how to resolve conflicts in all relationships...parent-child, spouse-spouse, friend-friend, etc. When my children are mature enough to read and understand this book, I believe that it will be helpful for them as they prepare for adulthood and also as they begin searching for a mate. I firmly believe that this book is vital for people who desire to have godly, healthy relationships.”
Boundaries in Marriage saved my marriage and my sanity…literally it did. I’d read dozens of books trying to find a way to salvage my marriage, including several advising doing anything to please your husband. Boundaries in Marriage gives advice on how you (man or woman) can be loving but also stand firm in the areas that define your freedom as an individual, your self respect, and your dignity as a human being. This was the first book on relationships that made total sense to me and made a truly positive difference in my life.”
"Boundaries in Marriage is an excellent gift to give as an engagement present or shower gift, but it needn't stop there. I’ve been married for over thirty-five years, and it is never too late to learn new knowledge based on biblical principles. I wish I’d had this book thirty-six years ago."
Boundaries in Dating is the most helpful dating resource we have read in years. It is sure to become a classic. If you are looking for practical tools for finding the love of your life, you can’t afford to miss this outstanding book.”
Boundaries with Kids has helped my husband and I to not only be on the same page with our discipline methods but also to really focus on how our three kids’ behaviors right now in the present will affect their future when they are on their own. It has helped us to set boundaries for them and is also teaching our kids to learn to set firm boundaries on their own with their lives. I’ve yet to find a book on raising children that is so clear and effective and really guides you through how to be an effective parent for the good of your kids’ future.”
"After breaking up with my girlfriend and separating for a year, we decided to get back together. But, we needed to work through some of the walls that we had put up to safeguard against revisiting past painful experiences. Beyond Boundaries helped ease the transition and really brought healing to our relationship. Dr. Townsend paints a great picture of how to push through the boundaries put up by previous encounters with pain or loss and open up to healthy relationships again.”
“As a licensed professional counselor, I encourage my clients to read Beyond Boundaries. Having read all the other Boundaries books, I still found light bulbs going off in my head when I began reading Beyond Boundaries. It is the sequel for those of us who have been injured in relationships and are fearful to put ourselves out there again. Dr. Townsend spells out in the most practical yet insightful manner how to go about forming new meaningful relationships with confidence.”
Boundaries in Dating explains why dating relationships go bad, how to identify the warning signs, and when to confront a dating partner. A super good book. If you want a healthy real dating relationship, this book is the one to get.”
“If you have children or grandchildren, Boundaries with Teens is for you! It is perfect for any parent of a young child wanting to prepare for the teenage years. It is so well put together that you can also use it as a quick reference when faced with an unexpected challenge that needs to be addressed immediately."
"Boundaries with Teens covers the gamut of issues you may be facing as a parent of a teen. It even goes through verbal scenarios that will definitely be encountered. As a seasoned parent, it reinforced many things I already know. But, just as you think you've got parenting down, the next child is all different. This book is excellent for every new spin your teen might throw at you, with practical conversations that hit home."
