Product Description

Author: Paul Tripp

Sometimes life doesn’t make sense. When death, illness, unemployment, or a difficult relationship challenges everything we thought we knew, we can feel utterly unprepared to cope. Best-selling author Paul David Tripp weaves together his personal story, years of counseling experience, and biblical insights to help us in the midst of suffering, identifying 6 traps to avoid—including doubt, discouragement, and denial—and 6 comforts to embrace—including God’s presence, God’s people, and God’s grace. Exploring a wide range of common experiences, this raw yet hope-filled book will empower readers to cling to God's promises when trials come and then move forward with the hope of the gospel.

Endorsements:

“We don’t have to go looking for it. It will come and find us. Sooner or later, suffering at a catastrophic level will wreck our lives. Paul Tripp understands that personally. He also understands the gospel personally. His new book does not trivialize our sufferings with glib formulas. This wise book leads us deeper into the gospel of the cross and closer to the Man of Sorrows himself.”  ~Ray Ortlund, Lead Pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee

“Dealing daily with quadriplegia and chronic pain (and having battled stage III cancer), I know something about suffering—and to be honest, there’s hardly a book on the subject I haven’t read. But when Paul David Tripp offers his insights on our afflictions, that gets my attention. And this book does not disappoint. Yes, Paul offers an empathetic ear and solid comfort, but he fills these pages with practical, no-nonsense counsel on how to move through and beyond suffering into a fresh and lively hope. I highly recommend this remarkable new work.”  ~Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

“Honest. Compelling. Grace filled. This book is a gift. Paul Tripp speaks to us not as a theoretician but as a fellow sufferer. His counsel is illuminated by personal experiences, informed by biblical truth, and infused with gospel hope. With compassion and empathy, he fortifies us against the common temptations we face when suffering and helps us see that our suffering, however great, was never meant to define us. Most importantly, he points us to the Savior who has suffered in our place so that we might be ever confident of his love, his wisdom, and his good purposes for our lives.”  ~Bob Kauflin, Director, Sovereign Grace Music

“Once more, Paul Tripp has taken God’s truth and applied it to our souls in a way that is both challenging and comforting. He understands the deep wells of suffering from his own experience and that of others he counsels. He clearly identifies the tempting traps that so frequently entice the heart of the sufferer, then beckons him on to find rest in God. This book will be my ‘go-to’ to give those looking to understand God’s good work of suffering in our lives. I am so sorry for Tripp’s suffering, but I am so grateful for this book!”  ~Connie Dever, author, He Will Hold Me Fast; Curriculum and Music Writer, The Praise Factory

“Paul Tripp writes this book with an honesty and humility that invites us into God’s intimate work on his heart through the dark nights. What he found—and what you’ll find if you read this book—is that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings us hope even in the most confusing and painful moments of life. Whether or not you’re suffering today, read this book and prepare yourself for the days ahead.”  ~Dave Furman, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Church of Dubai; author, Kiss the Wave and Being There
