Book Alert: How People Change by Paul David Tripp and Timothy Lane

Tripp, Paul David and Timothy Lane. How People Change. New Growth Press, 2006; 2nd ed. 2008.  223pp.  $17.99.

How People Change promises to be a worthwhile book for pastors and non-pastors alike.  The change of heart is so important when trying to give counsel to anyone.  More times than we care to admit, there is a sin problem at the root of many of our problems.

Here’s the publisher’s description:

A changed heart is the bright promise of the gospel.  When the Bible talks about the gift of a new heart, it doesn’t mean a heart that is immediately perfected, but a heart that is capable of being changed.  Jesus’ work on the cross targets our hearts-our core desires and motivations-and when our hearts change, our behavior changes.  It’s amazing to watch people who once seemed stuck in a pattern of words, choices, and behaviors start living in a new way as Christ changes their hearts.
