A Quest for More
Living for Something Bigger Than You
Paul Tripp demonstrates, through sound biblical principles, how men and women are made by God for more than a merely physical realm. We are meant to be “glory junkies” – with visionary lives governed by God’s grand purposes rather than existing only within our narrow self-interested confines.
He writes, “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 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.
“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, Co-Host, 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.” — Philip Graham Ryken, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA
