    HOW PEOPLE GROW
    HENRY CLOUD & JOHN TOWNSEND

    All growth is spiritual growth. Authors Drs. Cloud and Townsend unlock age-old keys to growth from Scripture to help people resolve issues of relationships, maturity, emotional problems, and overall spiritual growth. They shatter popular misconceptions about how God operates and show that growth is not about self-actualization, but about God's sanctification.

    To all those who have sought God and his growth path,
    and to all those who labor to help others grow.
    We are grateful for your hunger for him and his ways
