Paul David Tripp’s “New Morning Mercies” surpasses one million in print sales with Crossway

WHEATON, Ill.—Crossway is pleased to announce that New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional (Crossway, October 2014), by bestselling author Paul David Tripp, has surpassed one million units in print sales.

“We are so honored to publish Paul Tripp’s New Morning Mercies, which helps readers marinate each day in the greatest news of all time,” says Justin Taylor, Crossway’s executive vice president of book publishing and book publisher. “As a publisher, we do not put our trust in horses or chariots or sales figures, but we rejoice at this milestone insofar as it represents a million readers who are pondering the gospel afresh each day and being transformed in the process.”

New Morning Mercies features 365 gospel-centered devotions that lead readers away from behavior modification and feel-good aphorisms, and into an encounter with the living God. Each daily reading opens with a brief gospel thought, followed by a meditation expounding on that theme, equipping Christians with the good news that they need to trust in God’s goodness, rely on his grace, and live for his glory—day in and day out.

“This devotional is a call for you and me to remember,” writes Tripp. “It’s a call to remember the horrible disaster of sin. It’s a call to remember Jesus, who stood in our place. It’s a call to remember the righteousness that is his gift. It’s a call to remember the transforming power of the grace you and I couldn’t have earned. It’s a call to remember the destiny that is guaranteed to all of God’s blood-purchased children. It’s a call to remember his sovereignty and his glory. It’s a call to remember that remembering is spiritual war; even for this we need grace.”

Matt and Lauren Chandler, pastor of the Village Church in Dallas and his wife, commend, “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.”

Tripp is also the author of Parenting (Crossway, 2016); Come, Let Us Adore Him (Crossway, 2017); and Do You Believe? (Crossway, 2021). For more information, visit
