The Ambition

Posted by



Strobel | Zondervan

A name
well-known in Christian publishing, Lee Strobel crafts a gripping legal
thriller in his debut novel, The Ambition. In it, the former Chicago
legal reporter demonstrates his intimate knowledge of the inner
workings of the justice system.

When the Illinois governor
needs to fill a vacant Senate seat, Chicago megachurch pastor Eric Snow sees a
new arena for his ministry. Viewing his evangelical image as a political
liability, Snow’s advisers push him to resign from the church as atheist
investigative journalist Garry Strider plumbs the church for Pulitzer-grade
scandal. Strider finds nothing to report besides a series of miraculous
healings during intercessory prayer. Meanwhile, a disgraced mob lawyer with a
secret that could devastate Snow’s main opponent seeks absolution at the church
and inadvertently embroils both Strider and Snow in a murderous plot.

multiple viewpoints can be disorienting, and some of the myriad subplots do not
resolve. Still, the plot is engaging and exciting while staying grounded in the
Christian faith.
