How People Change – Timothy S. Lane & Paul David Tripp (Paperback)


What does it take for lasting change to take root in your life?

If you’ve ever tried, failed, and wondered why, you need How People Change. This book explains the biblical pattern for change in a clear, practical way you can apply to the challenges of daily life as a Christian. But change involves more than a biblical formula: you will see how God is at work to make you the person you were created to be. That powerful, loving, redemptive relationship is at the heart of all positive change you experience as a Christian on your path in life.

“This book is applied theology. It’s about heat, thorns, the cross, and fruit. It’s about present grace. In sixteen short and well-illustrated chapters, the wonderful prospect of change for the good is held out for the reader. We are called to consider our circumstances and our responses to them, and beneath that to examine our hearts’ desires and to turn afresh to Christ’s cross.” – Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington D.C.

“It’s encouraging to know that, in God’s hands, the winds of adversity that batter our lives are also agents of fruitful change in us. Paul Tripp and Tim Lane have done us all a favor by leading us down that path of change and teaching us how to embrace God’s transforming work in our hearts.” – Carolyn Custis James, author of When Life and Beliefs Collide

“Change doesn’t happen overnight for the Christian. It’s a lifelong journey. Paul Tripp and Tim Lane masterfully guide us along the biblical path that points us to the cross and a lifestyle of faith and repentance. I recommend this book to all Christians who desire to grow in their relationship with God.” – Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
