Editorial Reviews

Review

"Whiter Than Snow is music for the sinner's soul. In fifty-two personal, creative, and sometimes poetic devotionals, Paul Tripp responds to Psalm 51 the way a jazz musician improvises on a familiar tune. In making this sweet music, Dr. Tripp makes King David's confession our own, helping us get honest about our sin and opening our hearts to the mercy of Jesus."
Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College

"Convicting and encouraging, cutting and healing. Paul Tripp delves into the misery of sin and the goodness of grace with insight and inspiration. This book wonderfully blessed me, and I pray for its widest possible reading."
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

It is very easy reading but that doesn't discount the depth of importance of the lessons to be learned.

A fabulous book to take you into the recesses of your heart to expose your sin and receive the mercy of God.

Each chapter in this book can stand on its own, so you could randomly pick a chapter of your choice to read.

This book is 52 small chapters (most are 3 pages) from an author who has obviously spent a lot of time thinking about this psalm and his position before God. Its introspective nature is reflective of what comes to the mind of a man when he understands his depravity and is unable to change unless God supernaturally changes his heart. The 51st Psalm is Davids prayers of repentance and want of Gods mercy for his sinful nature, the author here goes after the same aspects of sin in our lives,showing on many occasions how we assume we are better than we are, he takes many of the verses that make up the 51st psalm and shows examples of how we can go to God with these things to receive forgiveness, mercy, healing and spiritual growth. There are in the book what I would gather as prayers, from the author to God, that are very moving and useful for our own meditation. It is very easy reading but that doesn't discount the depth of importance of the lessons to be learned. I'd be surprised if laymen or scholar didn't benefit from this work.

One of the truest benefits of genuine Christian friendship is transparency in view of the glory of Christ. If you are a believer you are no doubt feeling blessed if you enjoy such a relationship. I greatly value such relationships myself.

I feel as though Paul David Tripp is now in that camp for me. Now, of course, I do not know him personally, I've never hung out with him. However, in reading his latest book Whiter than Snow, I feel as though we have been meeting for coffee each Tuesday morning. It seems like he has been discipling and encouraging me through his book on the 51st Psalm.

In 52 short meditations the book brings the gloriously dangerous realities of grace and mercy down to eye level. In some chapters Tripp writes poems, others stories, some detailed exposition, and others he writes like he is in his journal. However he may vary the style the same note is hit: as hideous as sin is mercy is more glorious in triumph.

"Thank God that he has given us big grace! Each one of us needs grace that's not only big enough to forgive our sin, but also powerful enough to free us from the self-atoning prison of our own righteousness. We're not only held captive by our sin, but also by the delusion of our righteousness. Resting in God's grace isn't just about confessing your sin; it's about forsaking your righteousness as well. So we all need the big grace that's found only in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ." (p.29)

Many times folks ask me for a good book to go through with a friend--this is definitely one I would recommend. The book is Christ-exalting, ego-afflicting, and so therefore very valuable to those who pursue conformity to the image of Jesus.

Tripp's writing is fresh and clear, understandable and simple. But more than that, it's powerful. This collection of meditations on our need of forgiveness and grace from God is piercing. The questions on each meditation are insightful and thought-provoking. Whiter than Snow has helped me in my walk with the Lord.

Tripp does an excellent job at not only expanding on the thoughts of Psam 51 but he also drives home the impact of these thoughts in our contemporary world. I was consistently challenged to examine my own heart and to consider the realities of my own sin. A great blessing to read.

This book is one I will buy to give to others. Paul David Tripp speaks to my heart as few writers do. His poetry is especially meaningful. Psalm 51 has always been the go to Psalm for guilt. Now it is even more so.

The thoughts Paul shares on restoration within King David's life have been a healing throb in my heart. I've shared it often with those in hospital, who have lost loved ones, and who find themselves in the midst of difficult struggles wondering if God has abandoned them, or does not love them, or is unaware of their situation. Paul Tripp draws from the depths of Psalm 51 to answer these questions - and more.

Succinct and powerful. Paul David Tripp gives us much to think about although he doesn't use a lot of verbage to get his point across. This book will help every sinner (all of us) look ourselves square in the face and call sin, sin....then repent and get on with life. Makes one grateful for a great savior in Jesus Christ!
