How People Change

Written byPaul David TrippTim Lane

What does it take for lasting change to take root in your life? If you've ever tried, failed, and wondered why, you need to read How People Change. This book explains the biblical pattern for change in a clear and practical way that you can apply to the challenges of daily life. But change involves more than a biblical formula; therefore, 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.

How People Change includes a foreword by David Powlison.
