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 best-selling 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

How people go
5 stars By Jacky Jackson, Mar 27 2013
A better title would be "How people go". What allows a person to function and flourish? Townsend and Cloud contend our following in the footsteps and pattern of God's relationships makes us grow. I saw another reviewer say this book was the best book he had ever read and I don't doubt it. I would say the same if I had read less books, but it's very good.
We all need personal growth, there is a lot of opportunity for anyone to learn how to grow. Yet another must have for your library.

The most helpful book I have ever read
5 stars By Stewart, May 23 2007
When asked how people grow spiritually, most people reply by saying: "just pray and read your bible". This book shows how growth is that and so much more! It verbalises clearly how growth is the process that gets individuals back to the way they were meant to be. It is insightful and very practical (which is good for blokes) as it illumintates how the bible shows us, not just ideal way to be, but how God wants us to get there. 

This book will bring up the issues for you to deal with which makes it hard to read more than a chapter without having to spend a while responding to what it resonates within. For that reason, its one of the best books I have ever read, and will keep reading time and time again.
