Tripp's new book, A Shelter in the Time of Storm: Meditations on God and Trouble, is a series of 52 meditations on various aspects of Psalm 27. This is not a verse by verse commentary, but rather a series of mediations that are designed to help the reader meditate on and apply the truths of this Psalm to their lives and circumstances. The author describes his approach to the Psalm this way:
"I have approached the psalm like a wood butcher. The wood butcher cuts into a log, looking for boards with a particularly interesting or elegant grain, and cuts them out like a meat butcher would do with a fine steak. Then he places them next to other boards of similar beauty and assembles them into a table, a chair, or a fine wooden box. He assembles the pieces intentionally to help others see their individual and collective beauty in a way they wouldn't without his eyes and his hands. I have cut into the log of Psalm 27 and pulled out themes of interesting and elegant grain and assembled them into a picture of how to live with hope in God in a world that is fallen." (pp.10).
I found his meditations on this psalm to be extremely encouraging, helpful and penetrating! Dr. Tripp's counseling experience has given him a great deal of insight about how our hearts and minds react in times of trouble, frustration and challenge.Read more ›
The kindle book was formatted extremely poorly (paragraph breaks, alignment all jacked up) and the material was "average" and certainly not Tripp-like (I have read a few of Paul's books and I am always helped by them). In this work, Tripp certainly is not at his best and he gets very redundant and hits "identity" over and over and over again. I also felt like the devotions for each chapter were loosely based upon an exegesis of Psalm 27.
Overall: I felt like I was reading ramblings from his quiet times. I didn't feel like I was getting a resource that was going to fuel my own quiet times. Further, the book cost too much for the content.
