Summary

All growth is spiritual growth. Authors Drs. Cloud and Townsend unlock age-old keys to growth from Scripture to help people resolve issues of relationships, maturity, emotional problems, and overall spiritual growth. They shatter popular misconceptions about how God operates and show that growth is not about self-actualization, but about God's sanctification. In this theological foundation to their bestselling book Boundaries, they discuss: -?What the essential processes are that make people grow-?How those processes fit into a biblical understanding of spiritual growth and theology-?How spiritual growth and real-life issues are one and the same-?What the responsibilities are of pastors, counselors, and others who assist people in growing--and what your own responsibilities are in your personal growth
