Book Review: Broken Down House
I just finished reading Paul Tripp's Broken Down House (2009), a book that addresses life in this world mired by sin. In the book, Tripp seeks to show how the world in which we live has been affected, infected by sinfulness and that it is only the grace of God that will provide any response to this sin. In his typical style, Tripp uses a number of engaging vignettes to make his points about the importance of living with grace in the knowledge of God's sovereignty. He specifically shows how living with a gospel mindset has implications for marriage, parenting, work, and so forth. It is a great worldview book that is made stronger by his inter-chapter poems. Not my favorite work of his, but definitely a good book.
