Publisher's Summary

How People Grow reveals why all growth is spiritual growth and how you can grow in ways you never thought possible.

Our desire to grow runs deep. Yet the issues in our lives and relationships that we wish would change often stay the same, even with our best efforts at spiritual growth. What does it take to experience increasing strength and depth in our spiritual walk, our marriages and family lives and friendships, our personal development - in everything life is about? And how can we help others move into growth that is profound and lasting?

Unpacking the practical and passionate theology that forms the backbone of their counseling, Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend shatter popular misconceptions about how God operates to reveal how growth really happens.

You'll discover:

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.
  • What your own responsibilities are in your personal growth.

Shining focused light on the great doctrines and themes of Christianity, How People Grow helps you understand the Bible in a way that will help you head with confidence down the high road of growth in Christ.

Workbook also available.

Excellent

Though it’s a long book, I was never bored listening to it. Lots of things I learned. I even consider to buy the physical book to dig deeper into it. When I shared this book with my friends, they loved it and gave it to their son.

Supa incredible

This book is a wealth of wisdom with keen insights on growth. The lack of continual growth of the majority of people is a huge factor to the continuing persistence of prevailing decadence and violence.

Gave me so much to think about!!

Wow. Once again a solid bit of practical, theological magic. I'm blown away! I'm going to ask my colleagues to read this with me. We're in the growth business, but I think we need some growing still! 😉
