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" attachmentswhich can expertly masquerade within the church as Christian activism, legalism, emotionalism, formalism, creedalism, and externalismin 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 Change, Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands, A Quest for More, Relationships: A Mess Worth Making, Parenting: 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.
Have you ever wished to be a part of something far bigger than your own small existence? Have you wanted to invest yourself in something truly worthwhile? In his new book, A Quest for More, Paul David Tripp tells us that deep down we all long to touch the glory of Gods kingdom. And our great gift from God is that he has hardwired us for glory.
Tripps new release challenges the reader to leave behind the kingdom of self and the world of I, Me, Mine to reach toward the kingdom of God. He asks us to reconsider one of the central lessons of the New Testamentwhat did Jesus mean when he called us to seek first his kingdom?
A Quest for More brings the concept of transcendence to where the rubber meets the road of daily life. And though our journey to Gods kingdom begins by determining a purpose for our lives, reaching our destination demands so much more. It is a good thing to have purpose, Tripp tells us, but if your purpose isnt tied to Glory, you have still denied your humanity. A Quest for More shows us what transcendence looks like at street-level and teaches us how we can live within Gods kingdom each and every day.
Using the sound logic and compelling illustrations which we have come to appreciate in his earlier works (Age of Opportunity, Instruments in the Redeemers Hands, How People Change and Relationships: A Mess Worth Making), Tripp maps for us a path toward transcendence into the glory of God.
Tripps upbringing in a strong Christian family in Americas heartland taught him that practical approaches can help us come to grips with even the most mysterious aspects of our faith. And in this manner he outlines the method by which we can live not only a purposeful life, but also a life which is bound for glory. By overcoming the lure of the kingdom of self, we can connect all that is fully human in our lives with the holy, infinite and eternal kingdom of God.
A Quest for More affirms that God has chosen us for glory. Our task is to accept his great gift.
