Recensione

We all long to hear God's voice, but many of us are confused about exactly how to tune in. Here's a crisp, clear and compelling guide to the joy of hearing the word of the Lord and meeting the Lord of the word. --Jonathan Lamb, Director, Langham Preaching

'God Speaks' is a deceptively simple book. A quick read with a fast paced and humorous narrative, it holds the attention of the reader with ease. But don't be fooled, under the simplicity lie some of the most essential and necessary truths required for any Christian seeking to mature their relationship with God. As God reveals Himself to us - this book makes the mystery of that revelation accessible. As God desires to speak with us - this book encourages that conversation to begin. --Fiona MacDonald, Director of National Ministries, Scottish Bible Society

There can be few issues more important to the Christian than that of how God speaks. Hearing his voice is crucial to a healthy love for Jesus and a fruitful life in his service. This excellent book provides an outstanding introduction to the subject. It is clear, carefully presented and thoroughly readable. I recommend it wholeheartedly. --William Taylor, Rector at St Helen's, Bishopsgate

Sinossi

Pleasure. We live in a world obsessed with finding it, passionate about enjoying it, and desperate about maintaining it. Chief among such objects of affection are sex and money—two pleasures unequaled in their power to captivate our attention and demand our worship. In what is sure to become an instant classic, popular author Paul David Tripp pulls back the curtain on the lies of our flesh and the ways we distort God’s good gifts, examining the insanity of our culture and exposing our tendency to fall prey to the hollow promises of this world. In exploring how God’s grace frees us from futile pursuits, Tripp directs readers to the wisdom of God in Scripture and the liberating power of the gospel, offering practical guidance on finding true joy and enduring satisfaction.

5.0 su 5 stelle Sex and Money as a religion of worship 19 settembre 2013
Di R. Jankowski - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
As of 9/18/13, there are 20 reviews for this book all giving 4 and 5 stars. I really like the work of Paul Tripp, and with that sort of feedback, I thought it a safe bet that this book would be consistently beneficial as I have found other books of Tripp's. Having now completed the book I can empathize with the appreciation found in the other reviews.

Tripp devotes the first half of the book to sex and the latter to money. Both are seen as acts of worship. I found the message of the book in many ways consistent to Randy Alcorn's book, "Money, Possessions, and Eternity", which is also a highly recommended book to read.

The premise that Sex and Money are acts of worship is not necessarily profound, but the manner in which this material is presented was found not only indicting, but Tripp has a way of encouragement that inspires a redeemed one to redirect one's life to use Sex and Money as means to worship the one true God, rather than use them as a form of idolatry.

I really think you will find this book encouraging.

5.0 su 5 stelle Life changing, Eye opening. Must read 10 settembre 2015
Di Teekay Elle - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I can't even put into words how awesome this book is. Even if you don't think you have sex and money struggles ( after reading this you may realize you really do) this is an eye opening book on how these two issues shape our worship of God and how much the church buys into the insanity of the culture around us. I read the other reviews that had issues with his repetitions but I guess because I was prepared for it, it didn't bother me. I really felt the author did it to stress his points, not to be a nuisance or forgetting he already said it. Read this book once and then read it again truly asking yourself the many questions it poses. It's going to lead to some life changing revelations on sex and money and your worship of God.

Paul David Tripp is a man with a passion to bring the bright light of Christ to all of life's dark places. I have read several of his earlier books and he is a pastor, teacher and counselor who cares deeply for the people of God. And in those roles he does not hesitate in showing that the Good News is precisely that. Or said differently, time and again he shows that the only true hope for any human suffering is to be found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Good News is not merely that, i.e. good news, but it is really, and only, the greatest news. Sex and Money: Pleasures that Leave You Empty and Grace That Satisfies is a masterwork in dealing with what he sees as two of the most tenuous issues that daily confront and ensnare the Christian in the 21st century.

Tripp opens with a discussion of the reason people were created from a biblical perspective, which in a nutshell is to glorify God. He believes that because of this we are hard-wired for glory, which for many of us is misdirected towards the pursuit of other gods, most often sex and money. He then provides an overview of these two primary subjects; ones that he believes are driving our culture insane. He takes each of these issues in turn and walks through them with an open Bible, time and again showing how God's grace can touch wayward hearts and bring wholeness to places that often appear to be hopeless.

As he reaches his conclusion Tripp points out that there is purpose in living as broken people in a broken world. He writes, "God has chosen to keep you in this broken world in order to use its brokenness to prepare you for what is to come. The brokenness you live in the middle of, and the difficulties you face there, are not in the way of God's good plan for you; they are an important ingredient in it. Right now, God is not so much working to change your surroundings but to change you so that you are ready for the new surroundings he has planned and purchased for you in his grace." (189-90)

Sex and money are two things created by God in His goodness but which often end up infiltrating and consuming our hearts. Tripp has written an excellent book to help Christians put them back into their God-honoring place as they journey through this world to the next, the place where nothing will get in the way of all Christians giving God the glory that only He deserves.

I began reading this book to help me as I desire to biblically rear my teenagers. What I have walked away with is more than I could have imagined. The Lord showed me so much throughout this book about life on this fallen planet and has pricked my heart personally. It has helped me help my teenagers, but done even more in my walk to become more like Christ. It is convicting and hopeful all at the same time! I have recommended this book to many already. Excellent!
5.0 su 5 stelle Why Sex and Money Are Gifts and Not Idols To Be Worshiped 2 aprile 2016
Di David Gilleran - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This is a book I wish was written when I was a teenager. It is is full of sound, Biblical advice about two major themes found in our society today. Many people make idols out of sex and money. Dr. Tripp's book helps us to understand that these gifts from God are that, gifts. They need to be enjoyed and not worshiped. If you have children or grandchildren who are teenagers or above, get them this book.
