As human beings, we are created with desires. We all long for meaningful relationships, lives that reflect goodness, engagements with beauty, and the freedom to pursue our lives with integrity. But where can our restless hearts find fulfillment for these universal longings? Philosopher and apologist Greg Ganssle argues that the Christian story grounds and explains the things that we care about most. With grace and insight, Ganssle explains how the good news of Jesus Christ makes sense of—and fulfills—our deepest desires. Instead of arguing philosophically or deductively, he unpacks the key features of our deep concerns and shows how the elements of the Christian story align best with those features. Arguing that it is only in the particular claims of the Christian faith, not the atheistic story, that our universal human aspirations can find fulfillment and our restless hearts will be at peace.

"We live in a time in the West when Christianity is implausible to many because it doesn't seem to be good. While frequently and unwittingly still assuming intuitions that echo our Christian past, late moderns have ironically come to see Christianity as a threat to human flourishing. Nonbelievers don't just think Christianity is wrong, they find it distasteful. This calls for an apologetic that appeals not only to the head but also to the heart. The need is to help unbelievers see that Christianity is not only true, it is beautiful. This is where Gregory Ganssle's book comes indrawing on rich Christian resources of the past and winsomely dialoguing with competing secular stories. With both clarity and grace, Our Deepest Desires points to how the Christian story offers more explanatory power than its chief rivals."
"Who I truly amwhat Gregory Ganssle calls my 'core identity'is a function of who and what I love the most. In this engaging and accessible book, Ganssle offers a compelling account of our deepest desiresthe ones we cannot escape and would not if we could. Ganssle finds in the wisdom of the Christian tradition compelling support for his vision of how to get and stay on the right track in life. Believers and nonbelievers alike have much to gain from his warm and wise engagement with the question. Only a great teacher could have written a book like this."
