PURE PLEASURE by Gary Thomas is a thoughfully written and thought-provoking book. In it, Gary addresses the question "Why do Christians feel so bad about feeling good?"
The book is full of Scripture quotations as well as illustrations from his personal experiences and those of well-known and lesser-known Christians throughout history. Each chapter concludes with questions for discussion and reflection. These are not questions with easy answers, but rather, the reader is challenged to delve deeper into the "why" of what we believe and how we live.
This book is not a quick read. I would recommend it for group discussion. It is powerful. I have been challenged personally, and believe this will be a book to loan out to others. Well done, Gary!
