A changed heart is the bright promise of the gospel. When the Bible talks about the gift of a new heart, it doesn?t mean a heart that is immediately perfected, but a heart that is capable of being changed. Jesus? work on the cross targets our hearts-our core desires and motivations-and when our hearts change, our behavior changes. It?s amazing to watch people who once seemed stuck in a pattern of words, choices, and behaviors start living in a new way as Christ changes their heartsCommunity Description
Deceptively simple in its prose, How People Change is a revolutionary and provocative book for all who have felt trapped by their own desires. Paul david Tripp and Timothy S. Lane collaborate to expose the heart issues at stake and help people to make real, lasting change. These answers, the authors assert, lie in appropriating the fullness of the grace and freedom of Jesus in new ways that offer radically more hope than conventional models.

|A profound self-help guide grounded firmly in Christian faith. Mar 4, 2007|
|Written by Christian counselors and faculty Timothy S. Lane and Paul David Tripp, How People Change discusses the biblical pattern of change that any Christian can apply to the challenges of his or her daily life. Encompassing the principle that change comes not only from within, but also with the guidance of God helping the individual become what he or she was created to be, How People Change is embraces the qualities of love and redemption. "Without an awareness of Christ's presence, we tend to live anxiously. We avoid hard things and are easily overwhelmed. But a clear sense of identity and provision gives us hope and courage to face the struggles and temptations that come our way." A profound self-help guide grounded firmly in Christian faith.|
|The ultimate self-help book for a frustration Christian Dec 23, 2006|
|Reviewed by Vicki Landes for Reader Views (12/06)|
Are you ready to change your life? Timothy S. Lane and Paul David Tripp have partnered up to prove that traditional self-help books just don't go far enough to initiate that sought-after (and seemingly unattainable) change. Grounded with heavenly teachings, "How People Change" doesn't just tackle surface issues such as outward behavior; it reaches into the deepest depths to transform the very being of your heart.
"How People Change" incorporates the why's with the how's - why Christians can worship, be involved at church, and still feel like something's missing and how God's grace can alter the path of self-debilitating actions. However, the book conveys that true change is internal and that modifying how you think and feel will subsequently be reflected in external behavior and reactions. Further, their series of `x-ray questions' jar you into silencing your brain and listening to the true desires of your heart so you can determine what exactly needs to be done to make that change happen.
Easy-to-understand and applicable to all areas of life, "How People Change" is deeply profound. Lane and Tripp touch the heart and motivate the soul into positive action with an abundance of insightful statements that almost sing as you read them. "God calls you to be dissatisfied. You should be discontent, restless, and hungry! The Christian life is a state of thankful discontent or joyful dissatisfaction." "The more you understand who God is and who he has made you to be, the more you realize that the Christian life is not an emotionless, stoic, existence." After all, getting to heaven isn't just about avoiding bad behavior...there's so much more.
"How People Change" targets Christians who yearn for more or harbor disappointment for worship, their connection with God or their church, or feel they are doing right by God but still feel like something is missing. Their worship practices and frustrations are broken down to reveal underlying issues and the best fixes for a much more holistic view of life and grace.
"How People Change" is a beautifully inspiring roadmap for anyone not happy with the current status of their life. Lane and Tripp not only write intelligently for the Bible scholar but thoughtfully simple for those still young in the faith and struggling with their understanding of God's plan. Insightful, profound, and truly reflective of Biblical teachings, this work is a must-read - a hearty `amen'!
|Christianity & real life Aug 3, 2006|
|When the subject of how people change is brought up among Christians, so often all that is said is simply "trusting God" or just "giving" something to God. But in real life, why is it never that easy?|
This book is about the truths of the Gospel bearing down on daily life. If you want to see the deep connection between your daily life & how change, rooted in the gospel, takes place, then this book is for you.
If you are a pastor, youth minister, Sunday School teacher, elder, or teach the Bible in any way, you have to get this book. So often pastors & teachers will simply tell people what to do & what not to do (only focusing on making direct calls to the will), while completely ignoring what is going on in the heart. This book will help you see yourself & others in a new way that is centered in the gospel.
