Incredible and terrible
on 25 January 1999
There are few books out there that play on the borders of both worthlessness and pricelessness. This is one of them.
Cloud brings out life-changing principles in his analysis of boundaries, bonding, good and evil, and adulthood. It has the potential of completely revamping your view of healthy interaction with others (and God).
At the same time, it is very poorly written. I found it to be unstructured, long-winded, and completely unengaging in many places. Moreover, there is frequent misuse of scripture and a number of statements that could be taken to horribly unhealthy extremes.
Read the book. Be changed, but be wary.
