by Paul David Tripp

CCEF $15.99 $17.99 (You save $2.00)

Paul David Tripp expertly traverses the deepest recesses of the human heart and compassionately invites fellow Christian travelers to journey with him into God's bigger kingdom. Readers that they will be encouraged, excited, and motivated by hope as they learn how to set aside their "little kingdom" attachments which can expertly masquerade within the church as Christian activism, legalism, emotionalism, formalism, creedalism, and externalism; in favor of God's expansive and soul-freeing eternal quest.

Tripp demonstrates through sound biblical principles how humanity is made by God to transcend far beyond the mere physical realm and is likewise created to be "glory junkies;" those whose visionary lives are governed by God's grand purposes rather than existing only within their narrow self-interested confines. Writes the author, "It is a fundamental denial of your humanity to narrow the size of your life to the size of your own existence, because you were created to be an "above and more" being. You were made to be transcendent." Tripp then shows Christians how to "transcend" through daily, moment-by-moment, practical methodology that transforms individuals into the image of Christ.

It is within this purpose-driven framework, this "Quest for More", that Paul David Tripp compels believers to see beyond the worldly deception of personal achievement, success, materialism, in order to break free from this ungodly fulfillment that is too easily satisfied with a mediocre walk with Christ. Instead the author invites committed sojourners to a life characterized by an unyielding passion that pursues God simply for the pleasure of his glorious company and in the process, affect eternal change in a hurting, hopeless world.

Endorsements

"Wow! I was doing fine mowing the lawn in my little kingdom . . . until I read Paul Tripp's book and found that I had been mowing with a toy lawnmower and the grass was Astroturf. This is a book about the kingdom and your part in it. If you’re satisfied with the toy lawnmower, stay away from this book. But if you really want more (and you know you do), this book could change your life."
Steve Brown, Author, Professor at Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL, President of Key Life Network, Inc.

"Many people have read books about purpose or meaning in life, only to find their hearts were still restless, longing for something more. As you read this book, I suspect you will find yourself saying, 'Yes! That's it! This guy gets it!' Paul David Tripp not only understands the longing of the human heart for something more, he skillfully leads each one of us to the 'above and more' for which we were created.
Bob Lepine, Cohost, FamilyLife Today

"The kingdom of self or the kingdom of God: which will we pursue on a daily basis? Paul Tripp offers a compelling challenge to pursue God's with King Christ at the center! Then we will understand the purpose for which we were created. Then we will live a life that truly makes a difference.
Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC

Excellent Book!

This call to live for Gods kingdom instead of my own was much needed. I am my biggest problem and PDT graciously points it out again. I need to be reminded more ham I need to be instructed and PDT does it so well.

Another Great Tripp Book

Not finished reading yet, but have been blessed time and again with Paul Tripp's incite and wisdom that both convicts and shows me ways that I need to think and act differently.

Kept me awake at nights thinking about what I had read

According to author Paul David Tripp, “There really is no place for Christ in many people’s Christianity. Their faith is not actually in Christ; it is in Christianity and their own ability to live it out.” Never before have I encountered a book that stripped me of everything I believed without making me feel naked and forced me to see myself for who I am trying to be so I could better see the image of who God wants me to be. A Quest for More kept me awake at nights thinking about what I had read and how it applies to my life. It was like God performing surgery on my spirit, chapter after chapter. I don’t know how Paul David Tripp did it, but he took the things I thought I knew about the Christian life and enlarged the meaning to show how puny my Christian ambitions were. And now I can’t wait to grow into the vastness of living in God’s glory. A Quest for More should be required reading for every Christian. Because of our propensity to get distracted by our own devices, it should probably be re-read every year, too. It is absolutely life changing. You will never look at things the same again. And yet the author didn’t slap you in the face with reality, but gently presented the comparison of what we currently seek in life to the vastness of living for something more.
