Paul Tripp – What Did You Expect?


Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world. Yet, in pastor Paul Tripp’s professional experience, the majority of couples enter marriage with unrealistic expectations, leaving them unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life.

This unique book introduces a biblical and practical approach to those realities that is rooted in God’s faithfulness and Scripture’s teaching on sin and grace. “Spouses need to be reconciled to each other and to God on a daily basis,” Tripp declares. “Since we’re always sinners married to sinners, reconciliation isn’t just the right response in moments of failure. It must be the lifestyle of any healthy marriage.”

What Did You Expect? presents six practical commitments that give shape and momentum to such a lifestyle. These commitments, which include honestly facing sin, weakness, and failure; willingness to change; and embodying Christ’s love, will equip couples to develop a thriving, grace-based marriage in all circumstances and seasons of their relationship.

I bought cases of this book and used them as the focal point of specific small group ministry born out of a sermon series I taught regarding marriage and family. As senior pastor I can honestly say that those who participated in the adjunct groups learned and grew relationaly and spiritually on an unexpected and unprecedented level–which includes the first lady and myself.
There is no way that “What Did You Expect” fails to be a permanent part of pre and post martial counseling going forward at One Road Church.
Well done pastor &, first lady Tripp.
