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 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 humans are 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.

Tripp shows Christians how to "transcend" through daily, moment-by-moment practical methodology that transforms individuals into the image of Christ.

Within this purpose-driven framework, Paul David Tripp compels believers to see beyond the worldly deception of personal achievement, success, materialism 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.


Paul David Tripp, MDiv, DMin, is the president of Paul David Tripp Ministries, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to connect the transforming power of Jesus Christ to everyday life. Paul is a best-selling author of many books on Christian living, including How People ChangeInstruments in the Redeemer's HandsA Quest for MoreRelationships: A Mess Worth MakingParenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family, and New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional. He has been married for many years to Luella, and they have four grown children.


"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, but 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!

    Published by Daniel on 08 14 2018

    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.

    Kept me awake at nights thinking about what I had read

    Published by Christy Bower on 01 09 2017

    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.

    How delightful to read about what is truly important.

    Published by Glenn Parkinsonon on 05 22 2016

    Before I chose this book, I read reviews that, while positive, stressed that it was far too repetitious. Having just finished it, I understand what they meant. I suppose the relentless circling around the central theme of "big kingdom living" could seem repetitive - actually, it was repetitive. But I gave 5 stars because I very much felt a third dimension at work taking each chapter higher (or deeper, if you prefer). In particular, the last few chapters brought the notion home very well indeed. Tripp explained why Christ's call to die is a call to life. That's a familiar image, but all that came before laid out the wonderful meaning perfectly. I read this with a Christian friend and it was a great experience.

    More motivation than help

    Published by Bradley S Kelly on 05 15 2016

    The initial chapters of the book excited me and had me looking forward to more, but the book turned out to be all hook. A Quest for More turned out to be a sanctified session with Tony Robbins. There are many key thoughts and provocative questions, but Tripp never takes the next step of bringing the thoughts down to earth. This book could be very useful in a small group setting or in individual counseling. As a stand alone resource, however, it falls short. For all the questions Tripp asks and answers, the one he missed was: what does this mean on Monday?
