Richard Russell's comment: 'We have found this book, & others by these authors, profoundly liberating - more so than anything else in the field of Christian counselling. Even though there seems to be no direct influence Cloud & Townsend have developed a theory of human development & interpersonal relations that parallels Dooyeweerd's theory of societal sphere sovereignty where again the notion of boundaries is crucial.Highly recommended!
