WHEATON, Ill.—Crossway is pleased to announce that Paul David Tripp’s New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional (Crossway, July 2014) has surpassed 100,000 units in print sales.
Published in 2014 as both a print edition (hardcover with jacket) and ebook, this devotional offers daily encouragement through 365 gospel-centered meditations aimed at helping readers trust God and rely on his grace each and every day.
Paul David Tripp writes, “I have to be honest here—I didn’t write this devotional just for you. No, I wrote it for myself as well. There is no reality, principle, observation, truth, command, encouragement, exhortation, or rebuke in this devotional that I don’t desperately need myself. I’m like you; familiarity causes me not to treasure the gospel of Jesus Christ as I should.”
”We have been overwhelmed with gratitude at the response to this devotional,” says Justin Taylor, Executive Vice President of Book Publishing and Book Publisher at Crossway. “Most devotionals are relatively seasonal, selling well for the start of the calendar year but dropping off after that. But readers have responded year-round to the compelling daily content in this book, and we rejoice at this tool from a gifted friend and author who helps all of us to reorient our hearts to the mercies of the gospel, which are new every morning.”
Each devotional reading begins with a compelling, gospel-centered thought, followed by an extended meditation for the day. Focused less on behavior modification and more on helping people encounter the living God, this resource equips readers with the good news that they can trust in God’s goodness, rely on his grace, and live for his glory—day in and day out.
In October 2016, Crossway will release a gift edition of New Morning Mercies featuring a cloth-over-board cover, a ribbon marker, and a slipcase. For more information, visit crossway.org/NewMorningMercies.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT NEW MORNING MERCIES
“We have always resonated with Robert Robinson’s hymn ‘Come Thou Fount,’ especially the line, ‘Prone to wander—Lord, I feel it—prone to leave the God I love.’ We feel the pull daily away from God’s goodness and toward a pursuit of our own, away from God’s gracious acceptance and toward the exhausting, impossible weight of trying to tip the scales in our favor. We are grateful to God that Paul has written this devotional to help, in Robinson’s words, seal our hearts for God’s courts above. If you’re prone to wander, this book is for you.” —MATT AND LAUREN CHANDLER, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Dallas, Texas; President, Acts 29 Church Planting Network; and his wife Lauren, writer; speaker; singer
“Each morning for years, Paul Tripp has served fresh-brewed wisdom and encouragement through his pithy, thought-provoking tweets, reminding us again and again of the all-sufficiency of Christ and his grace. New Morning Mercies offers more of the same (without the limitation of 140 characters)! These devotional readings will strengthen, nourish, and recalibrate your heart, and open your eyes to behold God’s fresh mercies at the dawn of each new day.” —NANCY DEMOSS WOLGEMUTH, author; radio host, Revive Our Hearts
“Over the last year, New Morning Mercies has been a great source of life to me. Paul’s writing encourages those who have grown weary of the struggle, living under the weight of the world.” —TOBYMAC, hip-hop recording artist; music producer; songwriter
“Paul Tripp beautifully blends wisdom that has been gained through years of counseling, insight into the biblical story of redemption, and his strong grasp of Christ as our substitute to produce a series of daily devotions that both warm the heart of the hurting and challenge the complacent. You will find this book to be both deeply rooted in scriptural truths and yet eminently readable. I highly recommend it!” —ELYSE M. FITZPATRICK, counselor; speaker; author, Found in Him
