5.0 out of 5 stars Meditation on a great Psalm 31 July 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is 52 small chapters (most are 3 pages) from an author who has obviously spent a lot of time thinking about this psalm and his position before God. Its introspective nature is reflective of what comes to the mind of a man when he understands his depravity and is unable to change unless God supernaturally changes his heart. The 51st Psalm is Davids prayers of repentance and want of Gods mercy for his sinful nature, the author here goes after the same aspects of sin in our lives,showing on many occasions how we assume we are better than we are, he takes many of the verses that make up the 51st psalm and shows examples of how we can go to God with these things to receive forgiveness, mercy, healing and spiritual growth. There are in the book what I would gather as prayers, from the author to God, that are very moving and useful for our own meditation. It is very easy reading but that doesn't discount the depth of importance of the lessons to be learned. I'd be surprised if laymen or scholar didn't benefit from this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful because it is Humbling and Dripping with Mercy 18 Sept. 2008
By Erik Raymond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the truest benefits of genuine Christian friendship is transparency in view of the glory of Christ. If you are a believer you are no doubt feeling blessed if you enjoy such a relationship. I greatly value such relationships myself.

I feel as though Paul David Tripp is now in that camp for me. Now, of course, I do not know him personally, I've never hung out with him. However, in reading his latest book Whiter than Snow, I feel as though we have been meeting for coffee each Tuesday morning. It seems like he has been discipling and encouraging me through his book on the 51st Psalm.

In 52 short meditations the book brings the gloriously dangerous realities of grace and mercy down to eye level. In some chapters Tripp writes poems, others stories, some detailed exposition, and others he writes like he is in his journal. However he may vary the style the same note is hit: as hideous as sin is mercy is more glorious in triumph.

"Thank God that he has given us big grace! Each one of us needs grace that's not only big enough to forgive our sin, but also powerful enough to free us from the self-atoning prison of our own righteousness. We're not only held captive by our sin, but also by the delusion of our righteousness. Resting in God's grace isn't just about confessing your sin; it's about forsaking your righteousness as well. So we all need the big grace that's found only in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ." (p.29)

Many times folks ask me for a good book to go through with a friend--this is definitely one I would recommend. The book is Christ-exalting, ego-afflicting, and so therefore very valuable to those who pursue conformity to the image of Jesus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart-touching, personal and helpful! 12 Aug. 2008
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Tripp's writing is fresh and clear, understandable and simple. But more than that, it's powerful. This collection of meditations on our need of forgiveness and grace from God is piercing. The questions on each meditation are insightful and thought-provoking. Whiter than Snow has helped me in my walk with the Lord.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best devotional I have read in years. 27 Sept. 2010
By J. S. Burch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Tripp does an excellent job at not only expanding on the thoughts of Psam 51 but he also drives home the impact of these thoughts in our contemporary world. I was consistently challenged to examine my own heart and to consider the realities of my own sin. A great blessing to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Convicting and freeing 16 July 2011
By R. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The content of this book will guarantee that Whiter than Snow will never become a best seller because many people (including me) struggle with facing the depths of their own sin. But this is exactly why this book is so excellent and why it should be read by many Christians - it destroys any illusions of our own righteousness and drives us to God who saves us from ourselves. Like his other books, Tripp does not drag us down into the depths of our sin to leave us in despair. He exposes our hearts to lead us to the mercy and forgiveness that Christ alone can provide.

The format of the book is simple enough: Tripp takes Psalm 51 and divides it into 52 two to three page chapters followed by two hard hitting questions or reflections. This format allows the book to act as a confessional that could be used over and over again. Each chapter in this book can stand on its own, so you could randomly pick a chapter of your choice to read.

The questions/reflections at the end of each chapter alone are worth the price of the book. A few examples:
- Do you pray for open eyes to see yourself more clearly?
- What tends to compete in your heart for the worship... that only God is supposed to have?
- Is there a place in your life where you still struggle to rest in God's promise of forgiveness?
- Reflect on how you have been covered by the righteousness of Christ.

These are not superficial questions/reflections and this is not a superficial book. I can't recommend this book enough.
