Wn lives and the lives of others Following the example of Jesus Tripp reveals how to get to know people and how to lovingly speak truth to th Perhaps what I am about to say needs to be ualified this is the third Paul Tripp book I've read this year I appreciate Tripp's ministry and I know many speak of how this book and many others have been beneficial however I seem to struggle to connect with him as an authorreader I find him particularly wordy and disconnected in his presentation It's a stylistic critiue than anything This book is helpful at times a few chapters and sections were educational though for the most part there wasn't anything that I hadn't already heard or read elsewhere That being said I realize that this book has served as the bedrock for many other additional resources I'd encourage others to read this but it could easily have been 100 pages shorter and punchy Regarding the actual content this books provides a basic introduction to Christian relationships and how to help others in their Christian walks It certainly is an introduction and not much It's fairly wide reaching but could have spent time with case studies and not just short stories and illustrations here and there The other thing Tripp seems to do in his books is present some scary scenario with hardly ever sharing how it resolved or didn't or progressed leaving the reader with some cliff hangers I think if I could have it my way I'd substitute this book for Welch's 'Side by Side' and Powlison's 'How Does Sanctification Work' and maybe also Emlet's 'Prescriptions and Descriptions' to address the medical side All three books make up less than this one and would present just as good a picture whilst covering ground

Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands People in Need of Change Helping People in Need of Change Resources for Changing LivesWe might be relieved if God placed our sanctification only in the hands of trained professionals but that is not his plan Instead through the This is a fantastic book Often times illustrations or stories in a book detract from the overall uality in the book; they are usually comprised of fluff intended only to add pages to the book Thankfully Tripp’s book does not do that Every illustration powerfully or clearly brought a point or truth home His illustrations and stories obviously stem from many years of his own personal sanctification journey and also his own ministry to others Tripp throughout the book emphasizes the role of ‘homework’ in the task of coming alongside the counseling process in a powerful and transformative way I very much appreciated this practical insight of assigning ‘homework’ to the counselees Too often people are under the impression that their meetings with the counselors are the most significant times in their attempts at life and mind renewal That of course is true in a sense as the counselor uniuely comes alongside the counselee with the searchlight of Scripture and begins to ask the right sort of uestions that expose sinful thoughts attitudes and such But the real battle continues often times in full force once the counselee leaves their meetings Throughout the week that individual is confronting his or her struggles at a constant rate The astute counselor then strategically assigns homework that best suits the counselee given their uniue contexts It puts the responsibility on the lap of the counselee ensuring that they diligently own the work to which they have already professed commitment to Additionally 'homework' provides a wonderful opportunity for follow up conversation with the counselor In other words the sanctification process is not operating in a vacuum; in real and tangible ways it is occurring within the daily life of the counselee The homework only serves as an aid and accountability to that endTime and again as I read through this book I was convicted with how much I can be selfish in ministering to others On any given day I can serve others as long as it does not interfere with my hobbies or cross into my comfort zone It is painful to write those words but they are true This book has impressed upon me the reality that personal ministry is exactly that personal As Tripp states “We offer people a living loving presence that puts real flesh and blood on the presence of the Lord” 131 We are indeed the instruments in the Redeemer’s hands called to incarnate the presence of Christ in an honest and powerful mannerAnother key insight I gleaned from this reading was the fact that as counselors we are simply in the task of showing fellow sinners what is already taking place in their own hearts We are not called to be those who stand over people positioning ourselves as sanctification gurus; we instead are sinners called to minister to fellow sinners as we apply the Bible into the various and often messy matters in their lives As I read Tripp’s book I could not help but pick up on the pastoral tone with which he communicates There’s an evident love for the Word of God and for people as one reads which is instructive for me as I seek to minister to others I must strive to serve others out of the abundance of my own communion with God as he shapes and transforms my life into the image of Christ
