    Tripp has a compelling way of putting things into words so that we can understand the glorious doctrines of God better. He devotes 12 chapters to explaining the doctrines of scripture, God, the holiness of God, God's sovereignty, God's omnipotence, creation, the image of God in man, sin, justification, sanctification, the perseverance and glorification of the saints, and eternity. He takes another 12 chapters to explain what it looks like to live in light of each of those doctrines. He writes to "narrow that troublesome gap between what we say we believe and how we actually live" (location 55).

    Tripp starts out with the doctrine of Scripture because all of the rest hang from this one. We aren't going to believe what the Bible says about God's sovereignty or sin if we don't hold the Bible as the living words of God. I found the first two chapters on Scripture made me hunger to know the Word more as I saw all the benefits of Scripture afresh. At one point he talked about the word rescuing us. He gave this example. "If you are committing the sin of gluttony, you are so busy enjoying the pleasures of what you are consuming that you have little spiritual awareness of the danger of what you are doing. We need the rescuing function of the word of God not only because sin is dangerous but also because it masquerades as anything but dangerous" (location 473). So true. I needed to be reminded of that.

    This is a very helpful book. It's one to read slowly and savor and ponder . I love that it has the chapters with practical implications for life. Many times I don't take the time to think through implications for my life and this book helped me. I'd highly recommend it.

    Thank you to Crossway for providing me with a free e-copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
