Product Description

Why would God create us with such strong appetites for pleasure if He didn't intend for us to indulge them? Oscar Wilde gets to ask Jesus Christ this question in Ravi Zacharias' fictional dialogue Sense and Sensuality, the second book in the dramatic Great Conversations series. Wilde, a witty author and conversationalist who committed his life to the pursuit of pleasure, is the ideal person to argue with Jesus about this perplexing issue. The two historical figures think out loud about beauty, Blaise Pascal, and the Bible in a sparkling interchange that will fascinate and enlighten you.

Publisher's Description

WHY versus WHY NOT?
 
Why did God place us in a world full of pleasures if we aren’t meant to pursue them all?
 
In an imaginative dialogue, Oscar Wilde asks Jesus Christ to respond to this question about critical lifestyle choices. Their talk vividly illustrates the arguments for both sensual pleasure-seeking and moral moderation.
 
Playwright, dramatist, poet, critic—Wilde openly defied the mores of Victorian society. His literary repartee fueled an "if it feels good, do it" humanistic philosophy that is still prevalent in the world today.
 
SO WHAT does JESUS SAY?

    This read is amazing! It is written so eloquently and descriptive. It portrays Jesus with His grace and mercy, along with His gentleness when dealing with our human brokeness.... It is filled with hope. I will definitely recommend this book.

    The subject of understanding the gift of pleasure

    in its true meaning is well-developed through this

    dialogue between Jesus and Oscar Wilde, I loved

    the addition of Blaise Pascal. The dialogue brings to

    life the truth in understanding this vital subject.

    Ravi does a wonderful job. It is thought-provoking.
