    "Not my will, but yours be done." That final sentence of Jesus's prayer in the garden gives every sinner who ever lived hope. With the style that Paul Tripp is known for, he communicates what is already in scripture that we can see our need for Jesus. That we would be willing and fight the selfishness of sin. Lent is a time to mourn so we can find deeper joy. To cling to the hope of the gospel. Lamentation is used to see the reality of the human crisis.

Behavior modification does not bring you to the presence of the almighty. Coming to the presence of Christ during Lent takes a broken spirit and a contrite heart. This devotional invites you to that place of worship. Highly recommend. A special thank you to Crossway Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

    Lent is meant to bring us closer to Jesus. But how does this happen? In Journey to the Cross, Paul David Tripp takes us on a 40-day devotional Lenten journey as we reflect on our sin and travel through the sorrows, sufferings, and sacrificial joy of Jesus. Sit Under the Shadow of the Cross There are 40 days of devotions in this book, and they all focus on our sin. But they don’t speak on sin in the abstract or theological, but in the everyday and practical implications. Pride, poor attitudes, self Lent is meant to bring us closer to Jesus. But how does this happen? In Journey to the Cross, Paul David Tripp takes us on a 40-day devotional Lenten journey as we reflect on our sin and travel through the sorrows, sufferings, and sacrificial joy of Jesus. Sit Under the Shadow of the Cross There are 40 days of devotions in this book, and they all focus on our sin. But they don’t speak on sin in the abstract or theological, but in the everyday and practical implications. Pride, poor attitudes, selfishness, and anger are talked about. And Tripp makes it personal by giving examples from his life and with his family. He writes with sensitivity, but with purpose. This book takes sin seriously, but its purpose is to offer a solution in Jesus. We are told to sit under the shadow of the cross. We are told to persevere in prayer. As is fitting for Lent, we are asked to fast, make personal sacrifices, examine our idols, and put them to death. This book begs you to take your spiritual life seriously, and it reminds us that getting more of Jesus is always worth it. Abundant Grace Each of the 40 devotions opens with short summary sentences, and closes with 3 reflection questions. Interestingly, Bible passages are presented after the devotional read, prompting you with what to look for in the text as well as how to pray. I found this to be an excellent format, as the devotionals serve as introductions to the Biblical text – not meant to replace or supersede God’s Word. Because each devotion is less than 5 pages in length, Tripp does not waste any words. He cuts straight to the heart and asks direct, pointed questions. Following Jesus takes hard work and determination, with faith that is supplied and fortified by abundant and abounding grace. Deeper Joy After the highs of the Christmas season, I often find myself not as excited as I should be for Easter. With this book, Tripp uses the Lenten season to take us low with Jesus on a journey to the cross. By the time Easter arrives, you will find your joy has deepened as your heart is drawn to worship. I received a media copy of Journey to the Cross and this is my honest review.

    There is a lot to commend in this short book. Paul Tripp's writing is both clear and convicting. Through 40 short meditations, he encourages us to focus on the sacrifice and suffering of Jesus. This book constantly convicts because it exposes our sinfulness and points to God's rescuing, forgiving, transforming grace. Paul Tripp shows us from Scripture that God is holy, which means that our sin is serious. He also shows us that God is gracious, which means that our sin can be forgiven (if we come There is a lot to commend in this short book. Paul Tripp's writing is both clear and convicting.

This book constantly convicts because it exposes our sinfulness and points to God's rescuing, forgiving, transforming grace. Paul Tripp shows us from Scripture that God is holy, which means that our sin is serious. He also shows us that God is gracious, which means that our sin can be forgiven (if we come to Him in humble repentance). Grace, in fact, makes us aware of our sin. In one of the meditations, he reminds us to sit under the shadow of the cross, especially this season of Lent. For the shadow of the cross, he reminds us, teaches us who we are, what we need, who God is, what God offers us, how we should live and also gives us hope and courage. Paul Tripp also reminds us to groan and mourn. We need to groan our sin because "it is spiritually healthy to do so". He writes, "Mourning is healthy because it forces you to consider the full weight of the tragedy of sin". He also shows us that sin not only blinds us, but it also blinds us to our blindness. He encourages us to humble self-examination and regular confession: "Confession requires you to admit that your biggest problems live inside you, in your heart". He also helpfully distinguishes between the three terms "transgression", "iniquity" and "sin". I was thoroughly convicted by most of these Christ-centered meditations. These meditations consistently show us our need for grace by showing us the tragedy of sin. I highly recommend this book to all as we approach Lent this year. I hope to pick it up again during that time. 5/5 stars. "I received a free ARC from Crossway and Netgalley for review purposes, but was not required to publish a positive review."

    Tripp starts out the book talking about mourning. After the year we had, we see more clearly than ever that there is much to mourn. Tripp goes on to say "The sad realities that cause you to mourn also cause you to cry out for the help, rescue, forgiveness, and deliverance of a Redeemer" (location 36). In this 40 day lenten devotional, we are invited to examine our hearts and remember what Jesus has done for us on the cross. The readings are deep, biblical, encouraging and thoughtful.

    Paul David Tripp’s Journey To The Cross: A 40-Day Lenten Devotional represents the second book I have reviewed for Crossway this year. I chose it because I had heard about this author.

I chose it because I had heard about this author. I simply never had the opportunity to review one of his works until I saw his book on Crossway’s site. While I certainly don’t agree with his endorsement of false teacher Eric Mason, this book review does not take into account either his questionable (at best) endorsements or anything else that may paint him as someone to potentially mark and avoid due to said endorsements. Tripp gives both the book’s intent and his hope for the book in the introduction’s last paragraph (p. 10): During our forty days together, may your mourning increase so that your joy may deepen. May you groan more so that you would pray more. May your sadness ignite your celebration. And may all of this result in blessings that are too big and too obvious to miss. Tripp intends for the reader to take forty days to read this devotional. I admit I did not take forty days to do this. Therefore, I may not have gotten as much from this book as perhaps I would have if I took the full forty days. Nevertheless, I (spoiler alert) did like some things in this book. I share them in this review. But first, I give a brief word on Lent. GotQuestions.org has an article on Lent. “It begins with Ash Wednesday and ends with Easter Sunday.” That time period is 46 days (40 when one excludes the Sundays during that time period). Lent is “a period of fasting, moderation, and self-denial traditionally observed by Catholics and some Protestant denominations.” While fasting, moderation and self-denial aren’t foreign concepts in Scripture, “Lent” verbatim is not in Scripture. Nevertheless, Christians are free to observe Lent if they wish. They should just refrain from trying to make it a law. Thankfully, Tripp does not try to make it a law in this devotional. I found no less than three noticeable things in this devotional. First, Tripp has a writing style that uses much repetition (pp. 13, 20, 24, 36-37, 42, 57, 63, 98, 150-151, 161). Here is an example from page 20: 4. The shadow of the cross teaches us what God offers us. The cross teaches us that God offers us the one thing that no other person or thing can. He offers us the grace of forgiveness. He offers us the grace of welcome into relationship with him. He offers us the grace of personal transformation. He offers us the grace of a new identity and new potential. He offers us the grace of a glorious and fully secured destiny. Yes, it is true, he offers us grace upon grace! Throughout the book, Tripp begins consecutive sentences in a paragraph with a ritualistic order of words (i.e., “He offers us” from the above example). As someone who reads out loud, I can appreciate this, for sometimes I can zone out while reading. Reading the same thing over and over again often snaps me out of that funk. A second noticeable thing I observed in this book is the way each chapter ended. Tripp ends each chapter with both three discussion questions and a passage of Scripture to read, re-read (some Bible passages were shown outright in certain chapters) or the like. These chapter endings were my favorite part of the book. The discussion questions helped reinforce whatever was covered in the chapter. Moreover, the portions of Scripture Tripp mentioned weren’t single verses ripped out of context. Instead, they were nice chunks of Scripture. In fact, one of those chunks was Matthew 26:20-27:53, the account of Jesus’ crucifixion (p. 136). That’s a whopping 109 verses. Another chapter had the reader read Mark 14:1-15:39, the passion account (p. 174). That’s a whopping 111 verses. Anytime a book points to large chunks of Scripture to read, that’s a good thing. After all, all Scripture is inspired of God and profitable to equip believers for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17; see also Psalm 12:6; John 17:17; John 10:35; Titus 1:2, Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 6:18, 1 Samuel 15:29, Ezekiel 24:14, 2 Timothy 2:13; 2 Peter 1:1-21; John 14:6; John 8:32; 1 Peter 1:22; Psalm 19:7-9). The more an author can point to large chunks of God’s Word in a book, the better. I’m glad Tripp did that. A third noticeable thing I observed in this book is its stylistic variety. Some chapters read like personal story intermingled with theology. Others start with a biblical text before going into an exposition of the text. I found a few that were all poem/meditation before going to the questions. One of those was Day 30 (pp. 171-174): I must admit, I dislike the hardship of confession. I avoid grief. I don’t like painful moments of regret. I don’t like thinking about my sin. I want to follow you, but free from the need to admit failure. Your grace isn’t a backroom, under-the-table, secret-handshake deal you’ve made with me, where you gloss over my sin and I walk away relieved. You didn’t make a deal; you endured the cross. You wouldn’t call sin nothing, when sin is a big dark, horrible, rebellious, destructive, idolatrous, self-aggrandizing, law-hating, death-producing something. Any deal you would make would empower the enemy, encourage falsity, violate your holiness, negate your justice, crush your grace. Rather than a backroom deal, you went public on a hill outside the city, where criminals die. You put the ravages of sin, my sin, on display. In a moment of gross injustice and public torture, you hung between heaven and earth, suspended there by justice and grace. You not only took the thorny crown, the hard-driven nails, the sword to the side. You carried my sin and the rejection of your Father, as life seeped out of you. You weren’t accepting sin’s victory; you were declaring sin’s defeat. There is no denial permitted at the foot of your cross. The nails don’t allow me to think sin is nothing. Your tomb opposes any notion that sin is okay. Your suffering and death calls me to do what is unnatural for me: to grieve, to mourn, to regret, to confess, to come out of hiding, to admit my need for your grace, to repent, and to do all of these things again and again, with the knowledge that a debt paid is better than a bad deal. Sin forgiven is better than sin ignored. Grace given is better. There’s no clarity as to if this is Tripp’s own poem or something else. Nevertheless, one does see some important theological concepts in that poem (i.e., sin, grace, repentance, forgiveness, etc.). It appears Tripp understands the Gospel. He likely understands that by default, we are all born dead in trespasses and sins. Ephesians 2:1-10 explains: 2 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. 3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. The Bible is clear that people are born dead in trespasses and sins (2:1-3). God’s being rich in mercy makes one alive in Christ (2:4). Furthermore, it is by grace through faith that one is saved (2:5-9). It is not based on works (2:9). If you do not believe what Ephesians 2:1-10 states, I would ask you please look at the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:1-17. Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen something, even if it was small? Have you ever used God’s name in vain? Jesus said that whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery in the heart (Matthew 5:27-28). Jesus also said that if you ever get angry at someone, you’ve committed murder in the heart (Matthew 5:21-26). Just the mere thoughts of adultery and murder make you guilty of the very acts themselves. Please understand that it only takes one murder to be a murderer, one lie to be a liar and so forth. David said in Psalm 51:5 that he was conceived in sin. Genesis 6:5 states that every intent of the thoughts of man’s heart is only evil continually. Clearly, man has a sin problem. Romans 3:23 states that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Man is in big trouble with God because of his sin. This is more amplified by the fact that perfection is the standard (Matthew 5:48). Now, some people try to justify their sin by trying to balance it out with the good deeds that they have done. However, if you were to try that in a court of law, the judge would throw the book at you. A good judge would not accept a bribe. He would cast you off into jail. God likewise will not accept a bribe, for there is no partiality with Him (Deuteronomy 10:17; Ephesians 6:9). Revelation 21:1-8 states the following (NASB): 21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea.2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among the people, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” 5 And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” 6 Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give water to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life, without cost. 7 The one who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. 8 But for the cowardly, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and sexually immoral persons, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” The Bible is clear that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire. No adulterer, no murderer, no idolater, no unbeliever (among others) will inherit the kingdom of God (see also 1 Corinthians 6:9-10). Sin has a very serious consequence. Thankfully, Jesus Christ came to solve the sin problem over 2000 years ago (Isaiah 53:1-12). You and I broke the law. Jesus paid the fine (Matthew 26:14-28:20). This means that the judge can do what’s legally right in dismissing your case. He can say, “This person has broken the law, but someone has paid his fine. He’s out of here.” This is good news. There are two things a person must do. He must repent. This means to turn from his sin (Mark 1:16; Luke 24:36-49; 2 Timothy 2:19-26; Acts 17:30-31). He must also put his trust in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31, 17:30-31; Romans 4:1-25, 10:1-17; Galatians 3:1-14; John 6:26-29). These gifts of repentance and faith are granted by God (Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Timothy 2:22-26). If you repent and put your trust in the Savior Jesus Christ, He will forgive you of your sins and grant you everlasting life (John 6:47). Oh may you know His mercy and grace today if you have never repented and put your trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. WEAKNESSES? One would expect to find weaknesses in this book after I mentioned Tripp’s endorsement of false teacher Eric Mason. However, when reading Tripp’s book, I didn’t find any weaknesses that consistently manifested themselves throughout the book. Instead, I found “one-off” sentences that personally made me cringe a bit (i.e., “Open your heart to what I am about to say next” on page 18 and “You live with all kinds of systemic brokenness…” on page 123). Like any book you read, read with discernment. If there were any major recurring weaknesses in this book, I didn’t find them. CONCLUSION Tripp’s devotional is one of the better devotionals I have read (and I’m not the biggest fan of devotionals). While I am still not a big fan or affirmer of Lent, the Lenten theme Tripp uses for his devotional is rather timely, for he does touch base on the crucifixion, the passion and other important events that would typically surround a Lenten season. While I didn’t take forty days to read this book, I still found it decent. If you’re a devotional person, you might like Tripp’s Journey To The Cross. His constantly pointing to God’s Word makes this devotional one of the better ones I’ve read.

    Each year as Lent approaches, many Christians search for just the right devotional guide. I suggest Paul David Tripp's Journey to the Cross: A 40-Day Lenten Journey. For those already familiar with Tripp's writings, Journey to the Cross will delight you with his sometimes witty, often poetic, and all the time thought-provoking weaving of words.

I suggest Paul David Tripp's Journey to the Cross: A 40-Day Lenten Journey. For those already familiar with Tripp's writings, Journey to the Cross will delight you with his sometimes witty, often poetic, and all the time thought-provoking weaving of words. At the same time, you will find a fresh new look at some familiar and not-as-familiar passages. But don't let the word "devotional" in the subtitle fool you. Prepare to think deeply, to be challenged, and to process thoughts and emotions. Each day's reading starts with a focus verse, offer some thoughtful commentary and usually draws from other scriptural references as well. Additionally, Tripp does some teaching along the way giving practical principles for things like fasting. At the end of each day's reading, Tripp offers reflection questions designed to challenge you and help you mature in the faith. Personally, I was challenged in the areas of my priorities and the need to spend more time in confession and repentance as well as fasting. I received this book as a review copy, so I read quickly. Now I look forward to slowing down and reading as it was meant to be read -- over the course of the 40 days of Lent, chewing on it and savoring it. Note: I received a copy of the book in exchange for this honest review. The opinions expressed are my own.

Tripp, using story and poem, tells the practical purpose of Easter. How does the death of a man two thousand years ago have application to my life today? What is so important about that death and subsequent resurrection that I would want to take time, never mind 40 days, to reflect on aspects of that death? Lent comes in several months, and I will pick up Tripp’s book and read it slowly and carefully again, and may do it next year as well. My delight in the book shows the power of Tripp’s insights. I was challenged to slow down, examine my own life and attitudes, and listen closely to the words and actions of the God-man, Jesus Christ, as He went to the cross to die a sacrificial death for mankind. Tripp’s stories had very personal application. He made it easy to identify with the ideas that he sought to communicate each of the forty days. I’m thankful for the opportunity to journey with him through Lent, twice this year. I appreciate Crossway’s willingness to provide me a copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review.

    I did not grow up observing Lent. I vaguely knew it existed, but our family didn't participate.

The commentary was hit or miss for me. There was a fair amount of personal vignettes and associated interpretations that I just didn’t identify with or did not agree with to various degrees. There were also a few that actually hit home. Regardless, they all provided a starting point for the daily reflection questions … which also provides the primary benefit of this devotional because you can make the theme of the day personal. This is good since even the commentary gets more rudimentary towards the end of the season.
