This audio recording rescues ambition from suspicion by putting it to work for the glory of God. Many think of ambition as nothing more than the drive for personal honor or fame. As a result, ambition, the God-implanted drive to improve, produce, develop, and create, is neglected and well on its way to paralysis. For some, dreams are numbed. For others, there are no dreams; life just happens. And for those who are dreaming, motives are often confused. One thing is certain: ambition needs help.

Dave Harvey is calling for a rescue. He wants to snatch ambition from the heap of failed motivations and put it to work for the glory of God. To understand our ambition, we must understand that we are on a quest for glory. And where we find glory determines the success of our quest. Has your God-given ambition been starved and sedated for too long? Are you ambitious? It's time to reach further and dream bigger for the glory of God.

Listener Opinions

    " This is a very fine book. Not only is it solid in its teaching, it is solid in a area that just about nobody addresses. Ambition sanctified is the need of the hour. Ambition unsanctified is a deadly peril. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 5/31/2013

    " Great book. Addresses the transformation of our ambition. Encourages ambition that is humble, biblically informed, God-centered, risk taking, and local church oriented. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Billy Schiel | 1/14/2013

    " Great read! Harvey's years of experience in church life provides a wealth of wise counsel to young men who are ambitious & passionate about doing "BIG" things for God. He says ambition has been given by God, but the goal of our ambition is of the most import. "

    " chatty, easy to read, sprinkling of good quotes from scriture and other authors. liked it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 11/21/2011

    " Good coverage of a really important subject. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy Mcmorris | 11/14/2011

    " Don't know that I've ever read a book (other than the Scripture) that so immediately and poignantly met a need in my life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Wilson | 10/29/2011

    " Dave Harvey is a good writer. I profited greatly from his first book "When Sinners Say I Do." He has a down to earth style with a good bit of humor intertwined. However, I never got it sync with this book. Perhaps I lack Ambition. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ben | 4/7/2011

    " Not compellingly presented. A decent thesis (though far from pioneering as advertised). However, the format seemed to slow down the thought process of the thinking. Would make a killer TED talk! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 12/21/2010

    " Great teaching in a neglected area. Bravo! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey Doolan | 11/27/2010

    " Great call to stop shining your chair with the seat of your pants and do something. Last chapter/"Why I Wrote this Book" was phenomenal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 8/23/2010

    " Excellent book...solid theology. A must read for leaders who are always tempted to dream to big or have the wrong dreams. "
