Title – Broken-Down House: Living Productively in a World Gone Bad
Author – Paul David Tripp
Publisher – Wapwallopen: Shepherd Press (facebook), 2009
You ought to read this book. Paul Tripp explores beyond your pious facades and intersects deeply with the brokenness of your spirits. He delves into the issues of the heart. But he will not come at you as the criminal prosecutor but as a fellow brother desperately needing the same grace of God for his own struggle and war against sin.
Tripp follows the pattern of the apostle Paul on the gospel. First, there are things that you ought to know. Secondly, here is what gospel grace will lead you to do. There is no better transformational agent, righteous teacher, relentless trainer, and life coach for your life than God’s gospel grace.
Every Christian home ought to have a copy of this book on their living-room shelf. And this message is the key for the neighborhoods of your city.
