Be prepared to be kicked in the gut several times through this book... in a good way. I've read several books on the issues of purity, pornography, sexual addition, etc., but none of them have tackled the issues of sex (and included money) the way the Tripp does here. He really gets at the root of the issues surrounding our sin nature that drives these two serious areas of sin. Not only that, but just when you think you are "safe from that one", he ratchets the bar up even higher and forces you to confront the truth of how you are using these two gifts from God.… (more)

Several years ago, a friend gave me one of Paul David Tripp’s devotionals. I was blessed by his perspective and consistency in pointing us back to what is really important—Jesus and the gospel. When I saw that this book was coming out, I knew I wanted to read it, too. Even though I’ve been a Christian for years now, I feel like I still have a lot to learn about preparing my heart for worship, and anything that can help me do better at centering my heart and affections on my Savior is a book worth reading.

I’ve really appreciated this devotional. I haven’t finished reading it yet, because it isn’t the kind of book you want to rush through, but as a once-a-week devotional, it’s great. Each week’s entry is around four pages long, which is significantly longer than most devotionals I have read in the past. In that length, though, Tripp has some space to dive a bit more deeply into topics, and I really appreciate that. Then after each devotion, there are one or two scripture references to study and questions to provoke thought and discussion, either for yourself or with other family members. I’ve come away blessed, encouraged, and challenged from the thoughts he has to share.

As the kind of person who can easily find myself thinking about struggles and work from the past week as I’m sitting in church on Sunday morning, I feel like devotionals like these are a great way to remind myself why I’m a Christian, who Jesus is, and why we gather for church in the first place. I’ve found this book helpful, and if you are looking for a way to encourage your and your family’s hearts on Sunday morning before church, I’d highly recommend you check this out and get a copy for a friend—it’s been a great blessing to me!

I was given a complimentary copy of this book, and this is my honest opinion of it.
