Lee Strobel Has Written a Page-Turner

Can a successful nonfiction author make the change to writing a riveting novel? Yes, it happens in THE AMBITION.

From the opening pages, Strobel gives a fascinating group of characters who are set in a realistic crisis. Eric Snow is the Senior Pastor of a mega-church, Diamond Point Fellowship in the Chicago area. When a corrupt former U.S. Senator vacates his seat, the Governor considers Snow as one of the two possible selections. The other choice is a Judge Reese McKelvie.
 
The characterization, plotting and dialogue for this book is seamless and well-done. Strobel has made the transition from nonfiction author to novelist with THE AMBITION. I'll be watching for the next one and highly recommend this book. You will be hard pressed to stop reading it until you reach the final page.
