In the spring of his sophomore year in college, the future Henry Cloud envisioned for himself dissolved into questions too pressing to ignore about his career path and his relationships. This time of personal turmoil set him on a path of inquiry and discovery into the heart of the Bible--a journey that Dr. Cloud and his partner, Dr. John Townsend, have taken through the years. What they found out about how God produces change and growth in our lives did more than surprise them. It has formed the bedrock for their entire approach to counseling.
In How People Grow, Drs. Cloud and Townsend give you age-old keys to growth from the Scriptures, with life applications that may be different from what you've always thought and were told. Whether life is going well or whether you're struggling in some area, the insights in this book are essential to progressing spiritually, relationally, and emotionally. How People Grow shows you why all grow ht is spiritual growth, and how you can experience such growth in ways you never thought possible.
