What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Poetry is the expression of the heart and mind of a person. When that person reflects on the person and work of Jesus, the expression is hopeful and redemptive. As an artist who uses words as expression, I found joy in reading My Heart Cries Out. This work connects with the human condition in a unique and awesome way.”
Lecrae, hip-hop recording artist

“For some years now, Paul Tripp has delivered soul-reaching wisdom and timeless encouragement centered around the gospel and grace of Jesus, from which I have greatly benefited. It doesn’t take much reading of Tripp’s work to recognize that under his skin there is an artist lurking. In this collection of meditations, he artfully paints pictures that resonate deep in our souls as he walks with us through the pain and struggles of this world while also helping us see the glory of God’s grace.”
TobyMac, hip-hop recording artist; music producer; songwriter

“As with a timeless hymn lyric, Tripp has the great ability to grasp the vast riches of biblical truth and distill it for us in creative, compelling, and wonderfully practical ways. His writing has regularly shaped how we think as individuals, parents, and songwriters.”
Keith and Kristyn Getty, hymn writers; recording artists

“One of Paul Tripp’s great gifts to us is his ability to communicate profound truths in ways that are not only clear and searching, but also beautiful. With this collection of poems and meditations, he leans in to that gift to give us something that is, on the one hand, completely new, and on the other, familiar in its wisdom, insight, and honesty.”
Russ Ramsey, Pastor, Christ Presbyterian Church, Nashville, Tennessee; author, Retelling the Story series

“As I read these meditations, I couldn’t help but wonder if they are the types of prayers the Holy Spirit speaks on our behalf when our groans are too deep for words. My Heart Cries Out is a beautiful, honest, and grace-filled collection of reflections from a heart that has been near to the Lord for many years. Your heart will cry out indeed—cry out for joy and thanksgiving as you read the pages of this wonderful book.”
Trillia Newbell, author, Sacred Endurance; If God Is for Us; and God’s Very Good Idea

“So often these days, Christianity is presented solely as an intellectual enterprise, a faith that speaks only to the mind. But the Christian faith is so much more. God wants more than your thought life; he wants your emotional life too. He wants and demands all of your life. That is why Paul Tripp’s My Heart Cries Out is such a needed project for today. Not only are the words in this book beautiful, they are beautifully honest. In My Heart Cries Out, Tripp will help you think, feel, and live out your love for God.”
Thomas J. Terry, Director, Humble Beast; member, Beautiful Eulogy; Lead Pastor, Trinity Church of Portland

“As a sage with scars, Paul Tripp offers us contemplation, transparency, beauty, and verse spoken straight from his soul. But the impact of this book surfaces not in the scope of Tripp’s gifts or weakness but in the page-by-page celebration of God’s unrelenting grace. If you’re looking for a daily, creative, and soul-nourishing drip of gospel truth, feast upon the pages of this book!”
Dave Harvey,Teaching Pastor, Summit Church, Fort Myers, Florida; author, When Sinners Say “I Do” and Letting Go

“Art and poetry allow truth to enter the mind through the imagination where intellect often builds a wall of resistance. In this relatable anthology, Paul Tripp explores the tension between the ‘already’ and the ‘not yet’ in such a way that comforts the conscience and highlights the sweetness of God’s forgiveness. In each meditation, you will find yourself. In each meditation, you will find Christ.”
Flame, Grammy-nominated recording artist

“This book is theologically rich, biblically faithful, and devotionally nourishing for the soul. My heart was stirred, and my love for the Savior inflamed! Read and be blessed. Read and worship.”
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Paul David Tripp shares his heart and thoughts with us in this book from his times alone with God over the years. These meditations are so real, so from the heart, that they will bring you into a closer relationship with the Lord. While reading this book, I feel like Mr. Tripp knew exactly how I was feeling and put it down on paper. By showing us his vulnerability and humility, it makes you realize that you are not the only one who feels the way you do. And that whatever is on your heart, you can bring it to the Lord.
