Publisher Comments:

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?

Synopsis:

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's fictional dialogue — 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 readers.

About the Author

Ravi Zacharias was born in India. After earning his masters' degree at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, he began a speaking ministry that has taken him worldwide (including the campuses of Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford University) as a recognized authority on comparative religions, cults, and philosophy. His books include the Gold Medallion winner Can Man Live without God, Light in the Shadow of Jihad, The Lotus and the Cross, and Jesus Among Other Gods. He also teaches a weekly, international radio program Let My People Think. Ravi lives with his wife, Margaret, in Atlanta. They have three grown children.
