    I m a big fan of Paul Tripp, I really am I also know this book can be life changing for people What I didn t think worked very well was tackling two topics in one book perhaps that s why Crossway is releasing two Tripp books this year one on money, one on sex It didn t seem natural for me even though there are similar root problems I also feel the book could have been 30% shorter it got...

    I really did want to like this book I wanted so bad to like this book But it just was not there for me For the record, for the average Christian who does not think that they need this book, this could be an eye opener to their lifestyle that they are not aware of That is, if they could get past the title that they would skip over because they do not think that it would apply to them So what was my problem with this In an unofficial capacity I have a ministry to men with addictions The title screams that this would help me help them, especially those with sexual addictions Mr Trip tells us over and over that we should turn away from out problems rarely does he call them addictions and put Jesus back on the throne as we move ourselves off of it Now, this is good advice, I have no problem with that The problem is a person with addictions needs to hear this but also needs to be given steps in the natural to overcome their problems Mr Trip does not offer anything like this at all One without the other is not a real solid teaching in my estimation Except for a few chapters it is mostly about sexual problems in life Change the statistics and put in other addictions and this book could have been about any pair of addictions that you ...

    I started reading this book for two reasons 1 One of the categories on the current Tim Challis reading challenge is to read a book about money or finances 2 I had received it for free some time back from Christian Audio I started reading it with the assumption that I was good on both issues, but I should have known better It was by Paul Tripp and he always goes straight for the heart He showed how both of these issues is a heart worship issue He says that we are created to worship and we worship every day, not just an hour on Sunday morning Question is, Who what do we worship These ...

    This is where we see self ism manifests itself the most, in how we view and approach sex and how we think about money The younger you are within reason when you understand the God given importance of each, the better off you will be Both were provided for very specific purposes, for good, by our Creator and when we pervert either one of them, the road to destruction is wide This book has some very important content in it and while I do recommend the book, it comes with a warning I am probably in the minority when I say I am just not a big fan of Tripp s style of writing This boo...

    Sex and money two things many would arguably state they don t have enough of these days Additionally, these two issues comprise the pursuits of far too many these days It is not as if sex and the pursuit and use of money are sins as after all, God created sex and money is an inanimate object What gets most people in trouble is the incorrect pursuit of these two issues to include the lordship that sex and money has in the lives of many people today It is this incorrect application and the need for society at large to reassess sex and money in relation to how God desires them to function in our lives that is addressed in Pau Tripp s excellent book, Sex and Money Pleasures that Leave You Empty and Grace that Satisfies.I will state at the outset of this review that this book is one of the best books I have read all year For an individual such as myself that has the opportunity to read a wide variety of theological and Christian living books throughout the year, that is saying quite a bit to rate thi...

    This is a long and always good, if not excellent book.It s a shame the title seems not to live up to the rescuing information and truths contained within it s pages, though for the life of me, I wouldn t know what else to title it.For me, it was much deeper as how to walk with God sincerely, and warnings to help avoid the tragedy that love of money, and impure desires can take a person to.The author keeps hammering on the sin for a long time in this long book, and I could not take it in...

    This book has a lot of godly wisdom regarding sex and money, but listening to it is like panning for gold you have to go through a lot of pebbles before you find that nugget of gold But I say listening because I couldn t decide whether it s the writing itself that was poor, or whether it just didn t lend...

    This book is honest, heart exposing, and hopeful It is honest as Paul Tripp transparently shares and confesses his own struggle in these areas It is heart exposing, opening my eyes to subtleties where I have sought for these areas to satisfy, thereby calling me to repentance It is hopeful b...
