Editorial Reviews

Review

"Paul Tripp writes out of the experience of his own suffering and his skill as a pastor/counselor in helping people through times of trouble. He knows what it is like to go through the storms of life, but more importantly, he knows where to find shelter. This book will help anyone who is hoping to find refuge."
Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College

"Can one psalm really change your life? It can if you dig deeply enough. A Shelter in the Time of Storm is Paul Tripp at his finest-excavating Psalm 27 with clarity, potency, and straight-to-the-heart relevance. When troubles come knocking, do yourself a favor: let this book teach you how to treasure no less than 52 life-transforming truths from this grace-filled psalm."
Dave Harvey, Pastor of Preaching, Four Oaks Community Church, Tallahassee, Florida; author, When Sinners Say I Do and Am I Called?

Format: Paperback
When a powerful storm comes, the best thing to do is to seek shelter - preferably a solid, secure and safe one! Paul David Tripp, a noted Christian author, pastor, and counselor, recognizes that what is true in nature, is also true in our lives. As we face the inevitable storms of life, we need to know where to seek shelter, and as believers, we know there is only one Biblical answer to that question. When trouble comes, we find our shelter in the Lord.

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.

This book is poetic and challenges the thinking. The chapters are only 2-3 pages which is great for an early morning devotional. It really makes you think, but at the same time adds beauty to your life. Each chapter ends with two questions of very good application. I love this book.

This book was sent in a timely manner, in great condition. It's a wonderful book and is helping me deal with my everyday sin of Fear. I would highly recommmend it to anyone who wants to take on their fear. The author has a wonderful way of devotionalizing Psalm 27.

I bought this book with great expectations after viewing a short YouTube clip where Tripp speaks about suffering. I was very disappointed.

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.

My former seminary professor and mentor recommended this book to me when was experiencing ministry burnout symptoms. It comforted and encouraged me greatly, especially the parts about waiting on God.

paul came to our church this past fall to do a marriage conference, which we missed going to. Hearing from others about his very direct approach I was interested because I see a lot of fluff from so many these days.He is direct, wise and this book is brilliant, we have a few more of his and alternate reading each night before we pray together.
