Let’s talk about . . . Sex and Money

PLEASURE.Sex & Money Cover

We live in a world obsessed with finding it, passionate to enjoy it, and desperate to maintain it. Chief among such pleasures are sex and money—two pleasures unrivaled in their power to captivate our attention, demand our worship, and drive us to hide or to despair.

In Sex and Money (now available), seasoned counselor and pastor Paul David Tripp pulls back the curtain on the lies that surround us and on the distortions we often overlook. As he exposes the insanity of our culture, he also wisely speaks to our own tendencies to fall prey to sexual and financial idolatry.

Sex and Money ultimately directs us to God’s Word and the liberating power of the gospel, offering real-world advice, and giving us the guidance we need to find true joy and enduring satisfaction.

Praise for Sex and Money

“I’ve come to count on Paul Tripp’s books to be biblical, Christ-centered, deep, engaging, and well-written. Sex and Money is no exception. Its insights into our cultural idolatries and God’s transforming grace are priceless.”
—RANDY ALCORN, Author, The Purity Principle and Managing God’s Money

“Fresh. Honest. Real. Paul Tripp tackles the familiar snares of sex and money with fresh perspective, honest answers from God’s Word, and a real sense of our need for God’s grace. I commend this new resource to you from my friend and ministry partner.”
—JAMES MACDONALD, Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel

“This is a humble, hopeful, relevant book—a wonderful reminder that Jesus’s way truly is easy and his burden is light. I highly recommend it.”
—CHRIS BRAUNS, Pastor, The Red Brick Church

“In Sex and Money, Paul Tripp has taken two of the greatest idols and unmasked them against the glorious gospel. If you really want to unseat the insanity and power of lust and materialism in your life, this book will take you to the one true solution—Jesus himself.”
—JAY THOMAS, Lead Pastor, Chapel Hill Bible Church

3 Symptoms of a Lousy Listener

One major communication barrier (especially within marriage) is being a lousy listener. Tim Witmer, author of The Shepherd Leader at Home, identifies three symptoms that husbands and fathers should look out for in their conversations:

  1. Responding before someone finishes what they’re saying. Doing this shows complete disregard for what someone is trying to tell you. Wait until they express themselves completely before chiming in. “If one gives an answer before he hears, it is his folly and shame.” (Prov. 18:13) (more…)

“This Momentary Marriage” Now in Paperback with a New Cover

John Piper’s This Momentary Marriage is now available in paperback with a freshly redesigned cover.

Reflecting on over forty years of marriage, Piper looks into the unexpected contours and real-world implications of this “parable of permanence” —this profound display of Christ’s covenant-keeping love for the church.

What some have said about This Momentary Marriage: 

“Theologically, this book exalts human marriage as a metaphor for the ultimate love story in Christ. Practically, it applies that glorious vision of grace to our daily experiences in marriage, singleness, parenthood, and the most universal of human realities-sin. This book opens our eyes and guides our feet with the grace of Christ.”
— Raymond C. Ortlund Jr., Lead Pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee

“This book is a treasure in an era when the common perspective on marriage has been more shaped by sitcoms and self-help books than by Scripture. Dr. Piper lifts our hearts and minds to God’s vision for marriage. Embracing God’s design and purposes for marriage can make our homes tastes of heaven.”
— Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author, Biblical Womanhood in the Home; radio host, Revive Our Hearts

“A highly original contribution to Christian teaching on marriage. A copy should be put into the hands of every couple preparing for lasting and loving wedlock.”
— Charles Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview
