"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

In each meditation, you will find yourself. In each meditation, you will find Christ." Flame, Grammy-nominated recording artist
