What is the Rise Book About?

People have asked Trip what his new book is about. Here he is talking about that briefly. You can learn more about the book at Risebook.tv

Are You Living the Good Life?

Earlier this year I went on tour with my new book, The Good Life. Each night, I gave a talk that tried to answer the question, “What does it mean to live the good life?” In Chattanooga, TN, we recorded the message and I’ve posted it above. The book released on October 1, 2012 and you can purchase it here. To learn more about the book you can click here. You can purchase The Good Life album here. Are you living the good life?

Take a look behind the scenes with Trip Lee as he discusses highs and lows in the process of making his latest album “The Good Life.”

The Beautiful Lives of the Unborn

The first song I wrote for my most recent album, “The Good Life” was a song called “Beautiful Life.” Desiring God asked me about that song and my heart behind it. Here’s their entire blog post.

And here are the lyrics to the song, which features V. Rose:

Hook:
Beautiful Life Inside
Living Moving Breathing

God knew what He was doing
When He gave

And I know that baby in your stomach ain’t a game
He’s got a heart beat, he’s bout to grow…

I want to begin by thinking about stories. Since the beginning of time there have been certain common themes that run through our stories.

But across all those kinds of movies, there are two themes that almost always show up: good and evil.

Think about your favorite movies. In Braveheart, Scotland and William Wallace are good, while England and King Edward are bad. In the Chronicles of Narnia the kids and Aslan are good, and the witch is bad. Even in Disney movies, this is true. In Aladdin, Aladdin and the genie are good, but Jafar is bad. Don’t act like you don’t know about Aladdin.

You always want the good side to win and most of the time they would.

So when we begin to talk about Jesus and when we begin to talk about God people sometimes think in the same categories. They think of the universe as a cosmic battle between God and the Devil. And like all of our favorite stories, we’re anticipating the end to see who wins. Is Jesus just an…
