How People Grow by Cloud and Townsend. The book's publisher, Zondervan, described the book's theme this way:
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.
