Item description for Lost in the Middle: Mid-Life Crisis and the Grace of God by Paul David Tripp...
Overview The Bible never discusses midlife,
just like it never discusses teenagers . . .
Yet the Bible is able to unpack any of life?s experiences because it was written by the One who made them all. Life on this side of glory is hard. This world is a broken place. You will face things in midlife that beat at the borders of your faith, but you do not have to be lost in the middle of your story.
Although this book is directed at those who are facing the issues of midlife, it has a much broader net than that. Lost in the Middle can help all who are confronted with life in this broken world and have lost their way. The God who seems so distant to you in this moment is actually near and active. Lost in the Middle is written to give you eyes to see him, to see yourself more clearly, and to find the real hope that you need to carry on.
You do not have to be paralyzed by regret, defeated by aging, and discouraged by the passing of your dreams. This time of life, which can seem like the end of many things, can actually welcome you to a brand new way of living. As is so often the case in your walk with the Lord, this moment of pain is also a moment of grace. Because of this, we all need to occasionally step back, slow down, and consider where we are going. Lost in the Middle will help you to do just that.

Home Run Jan 9, 2007
This book knocks one out of the park. Dr. Tripp is a master of bringing scripture to bear on the details of daily life. The reader will find the true balm and nourishment of God's Word applied directly to the point of need.
Great Hope for Broken Dreams Nov 9, 2006
Lost in the Middle is the only book I have read so far that gets to the heart of us who have traveled the road long and seemingly come up short. It also hits home for those whose journey is still in process, but big cracks in the road have appeared and nearly swallowed them. Paul David Tripp gets at the heart of the human dilemma: focus on self rather than on the Creator. Somehow we get it backwards and think that all things need to work out for us, but it's not about us. When we think we are in control of our lives, we make ourselves like God, and, that, we aren't. Through the exercise of repentance, seeking forgiveness, and acknowledging the Sovereignty of God, we can rekindle the reason for living and finish well. I strongly recommend this book to us who are in the 4th quarter, AND to those who have blown it and need a leg up. Thank you Paul, for leading the way.
Amazing insight Sep 20, 2006

Lost in the Middle Offers God's Truth for MidLifers Jul 29, 2006
Lost in the Middle is another gem from Paul Tripp.
Midlife can be a potential minefield of disappointments, broken promises and wayward dreams. In his latest book Lost in the Middle, Paul Tripp guides us through the challenges of midlife by bringing a gospel-centric view to this interesting period of life. As far as I know, it's the first book of its kind written from a thoroughly biblical perspective. Paul Tripp has written many fine books including Age of Opportunity and War of Words. I've found that the strength of Tripp's writings stems from his deeply insightful understanding of the human struggle matched with his commitment to bring biblical truth to bear on that struggle.

Great for "young" lifers too! May 3, 2006
While not officially in in mid-life, I found this book an excellent critique of my idols (our culture's). What I found fascinating is that, like biblical writing, Tripp's message is so simple yet so profound. If you struggle with sin, lonliness, depression, inadequacy, this is a good book for you. Grace to you.
