Publisher's Summary

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 expose 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.

    "Greater Appreciation for Dekker"

    I have read the Circle Trilogy and loved them, despite not reading much fiction. I decided to get this book becasue I enjoyed checking out Ted's website and he seemed to have some excellent insights. This book did not leave me disappointed! Ted uses his abilty to tell great stories to drive home his points. He even talks about points he made in his fictional work. But while his thoughts are presented in an entertaining manner, he will challenge what we normally think and cause you to think a bit more about some things you probably have never thought about. I walked away with some new perspectives.

    Overall I would highly recommend this book. But don't just read it, think about it.
