As believers, our walk with God is motivated by hope-not the bland, vague notion most people have, but the expectation of an exotic, pleasurable inheritance that guides us and fires our passion...or, at least, should.
Ted Dekker has written an exposé on the death of pleasure within the Church. Because many of us have set aside hope and the inspired imagination that drives it, Dekker says we have been lulled into a slumber of boredom, even despondency. Our faith wanes, the joy at having been liberated fades, and we feel powerless. The Slumber of Christianity explores what robs us of happiness and how we can rediscover it and live lives that rekindle hope. The pursuit of pleasure is a gift to all humans-a function of the Creator himself, who is bent upon our happiness.
It's time for Christians to reclaim our inheritance of pleasure. The Slumber of Christianity will inflame hearts toward full-fledged, mind-expanding encounters with hope, through the imagination.
ChrisCarrollton, GeorgiaAge: 35-44Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Pretty good bookAugust 19, 2013ChrisCarrollton, GeorgiaAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Overall, this is a good book. Dekker has some very good points and insight. The book was a little boring though. Even though I liked his insight and points, I hate to say it but I struggled through the book because of a lack of attention. Maybe I have an attention deficit. I would reccomend it though because of the points he makes. He addressed some of the problems with the modern church that we could all learn from.

I love his fiction, but this doesn't do it for me.

The only problem is Dekker's solution to keeping the Church from slumbering is lacking, especially for the average every day Christian.
