Very thought-provoking and practical guide to how we should live in light of the kingdom of God. We tend to live from day-to-day and allow our lives to shrink to fit the size of our lives instead of expanding to the life God has called us to. ( )

「在許多基督徒的生命中,並沒有真正給基督留位置,他們的信仰不再基督本身,而是信靠自己的能力來過屬世的​ 保羅居普最擅長探索人的內心,他大聲疾呼天路客與他一同進入更大的國度中!​ 作者呼籲我們放下對「小小王國」的愛慕!這種對「小小王國」的愛慕普遍存在於教會中,以激進主義、律法主義​、感情主義、形式主義、信念主義及外表主義等巧妙的偽裝,使人曲解神的大救恩。​ 人受造為了榮耀神-區普勉勵信徒要有遠見,看穿個人成就及物質主義的欺騙,不再以這些不敬虔的小事為滿足,​ 讓我們堅定愛神,尋求更大的目標並活出神的榮耀,好在這個傷痕累累、痛苦無望的世界,發揮永恆的影響力。​

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978556747, Paperback)

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. The author promises readers that they 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 though sound biblical principles how humanity is made by God to transcend far beyond the mere physical realm and is 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. Writes the author, 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.
