Product Description

Is ambition primarily a relentless quest for success, fame, and fortune? Or is there another side to it? Turning our understanding of the concept on its head, Harvey affirms the God-implanted drive to improve, produce, develop, and create---and shows how to put it to work for the glory of God, instead of our own satisfaction. 160 pages, softcover from Crossway.

I was delightfully surprised by Rescuing Ambition. I was actually reluctant to read it at first, expecting a defense of personal ambition that was rooted in American cultural values and supported by Scriptures that never quite supported the author's contention. What I found instead was a well-thought-out, God-centered book that challenged and encouraged me to rethink my own thoughts about this topic.

Dave Harvey cites the likes of Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, and John Piper -- which obviously brings credibility to his arguments -- as he systematically develops a framework for a biblical perspective on ambition. After laying a foundation of gospel-shifting values, he addresses all the questions I've asked myself over the years: How does ambition relate to humility? Can I be ambitious in my career and ambitious for the Kingdom at the same time? What's happening in my heart when I begin feeling less ambitious than I have in the past? In each chapter, Harvey seems to anticipate my questions and is ready to respond with biblical answers.

I especially liked his discussion of faith and ambition. He makes a well-reasoned case that godly ambition finds its focus in faith – that’s where biblical ambition finds its character and purpose. I had not linked God's sovereignty and my confidence in His purposes in my life with ambition in such a direct manner and I found this very helpful.

I found Harvey's style easy to read and enjoyable. He comes across as very genuine and someone I'd like to spend time with. At the same time he writes with authority and communicates that he is someone who has something to say. Halfway through the book I stopped to see what else he's written and have already purchased another one of his books, perhaps the best commentary on what I thought of this one! – Glenn Ripley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
