"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

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.
Many have sat on a shelf, either through boredom or being miles over my head.
This one however is next to my recliner, battered and dog eared from being a constant in my life.
The 1- 2 page devotionals and the prayer & reflections keep me moving forward, in conformity ,towards Christ likeness.
Since buying my 1st copy, I've now bought several as it is a faithful & reliable gift for friends & graduation gifts.
Dr. Tripp has a gift for pointing towards the Glory of GOD, the drag on our hearts of sin and conviction & tools to honor the Lord.
