A great book for learning how to speak to people's hearts rather than doing behavior modification. Tripp, though wordy at times, emphasizes the importance of incarnational ministry.Key Quote = "We must not offer people a system of redemption, a set of insights and principles. We offer people a Redeemer.¿
