“Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh,” so ends one of the most practical books in the Bible, Ecclesiastes. And, it makes sense, doesn’t it? Book lovers love all things books. And, we’ll exhaust ourselves for the sake of a good book. There are long books, short books, wish we had more books. Have you ever read an author and thought, “I wish more people could connect with this author?” That’s my experience with Paul Tripp. Every single thing he writes is productive and helpful for me.
His latest book, New Morning Mercies, is another book among many. Tripp’s written devotional type books before. He’s written the textbooks, the practical books, the pastoral books. So, what is New Morning Mercies? It’s a collection of writings from Tripp. These are written up in short blips to read each day. You might view this collection of writings as a Tripp Greatest Hits piece. It’s really him at his finest: probing the heart with thought-provoking meditations so that we’ll be driven to our need of the good news found in Jesus.
So, if you find that you can’t quite navigate the preponderance of books, grab Paul Tripp’s greatest hits, New Morning Mercies, so that you might be engaged at the heart level and be left to go to your Savior.
