Paul Tripp throws another ringer into the game with Awe. The book prior to Awe, is Dangerous Calling and it made waves in the theological print world. Awe does the very same, with perhaps even bigger waves.
Tripp has a way of cutting to the very core with his writing. The precision he uses in his writing exposes readers to honesty & openness so that the writing can do a great number on challenging & encourageing the readers to greater spiritual depth & sincerity.
I found his previous book, Dangerous Calling, to be a spiritual thermometer for pastors to check the gauges of their heart to see if they were fit for vocational ministry. With AWE, Tripp ups the ante and this book seems to be a gut-check to reavaluate your heart in the grind of ministry.
Tripp has a way of expressing exactly what pastors experience, when they can’t seem to put it into words…whether it be for reason of lack of expression or embarrassment, Tripp calls pastors out with tender conviction and a strong heart for restoration of joy & purpose.
AWE will soon be on the shelves, but not for long, if readers take his words to heart. Get it while you can. AWE matters more than you think.
Thank you to Crossway publishers for the opportunity to review this book. I was not required to write a positive review.
