About The Book:
After reaching millions of people with his “Case” series, Lee Strobel has launched himself into the fiction genre with this taut legal thriller. You will be thrown into a captivating world that connects a disillusioned pastor with a corrupt judge, a cynical reporter, and a gambling addict on a desperate quest for redemption.
A corrupt judge in a mob murder case. A disillusioned pastor, hungry for power. A cynical reporter, sniffing for a scandal. A gambling addict whose secret tape threatens the lives of everyone who hears it.
New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel weaves these edgy characters into an intricate thriller set in a gleaming, suburban megachurch, a big-city newspaper struggling for survival, and the shadowy corridors of political intrigue. The unexpected climax is as gripping as the contract killing that punctuates the opening scene.

About The Author:
Check out the official The Ambition website for more information!
I was first introduced to the writings of Lee Strobel with his bestseller, The Case For Christ, a number of years ago. When I found out that Strobel had written a novel I was very intriqued, and I can tell you without a doubt, I am so glad I read it.
The Ambiton is full of suspense, twists and turns and will keep you guessing right until the end. I really enjoyed The Ambition and hope to see Strobel write more novels. The book is full of wonderful characters, as combined with Strobel's exquisite writing, you will feel you are right in every scene written and experiencing it just as the characters have. The Ambition would be a fantastic movie to be sure!
It is very clear that a ton of research has been done to make this book as accurate as possible, and I am sure that Mr. Strobel has used his many years as a journalist to also impact the writing of this book. Also evident is a strong Christian Worldview, without being overly preachy. This will make The Ambition an appealing read to even non-Christians.
An awesome read for any one's summer reading lists, one that I highly recommend!
