God is a doer of great things. Isn't it time you joined His big plans?
Human ambition is often rooted in pride. But "holy ambition"? That's something else! When your ambitions aren't about your own glory but God's, you'll find Him to be a source of empowerment that you can't get anywhere else.
Pastor and radio teacher Chip Ingram invites you into something more daring than your current life. Holy Ambition takes you to the biblical story of Nehemiah, a humble servant of the king who became a leader of his people. Nehemiah could have kept his comfortable position in the palace, but instead he chose a radical path that allowed him to do amazing things for God. You can too! But you're going to have to take some risks. And that means you've got to put aside fear or pride and start acting on your holy ambitions.
It's time for the church to be what God wants: a people who will let Him do a powerful work in them and through them. No more living in the boring middle. Start living on the edge of God's groundbreaking work, and experience the exuberance of being on mission for Him!
Praise for Holy Ambition
"Holy Ambition removed the lid off my passions, gifts, dreams, and personality. I stopped limiting what I thought God could do with me. It gave me permission to think differently about my gifts, my calling, and how I could play a role in building the kingdom."
New York Times bestselling author of Get Out of Your Head
Founder and visionary of IF:Gathering
"Like a calm voice from the control tower, Chip talks through the pages of Holy Ambition as though guiding a disoriented pilot down through the fog onto the landing strip. There has never been a better time than now for such a strategic call to lighting our lamps in a dark world."
—Howard G. Hendricks
Distinguished Professor, Chairman, Center for Christian Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary
"Mercy Ships was privileged to have Chip speak to our International Board of Directors. Chip's teaching was a home run with the bases loaded, and the book of Nehemiah was readily applicable to each of our situations."
Founder and president, Mercy Ships International
"Chip Ingram uses Nehemiah to show that a caring spirit and humble disposition are precursors to being the best one can be, not only as a manager, but also in any role involving one's faith, family, or vocation."

"Did you ever wonder where in the Bible you could find an entrepreneur for God? What were his characteristics that led to success? Chip, thanks for the answers . . . and the challenge!"
