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' fictional dialogue - the second book in the dramatic great conversation 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 inspire readers. Download and start listening now!

    " Love Wilde. This treats him fairly, and illustrates well the grace of God, even in death. "

    " Excellent book. I will probably re-read this one in a year or two, to see what else I can glean from its pages. Ravi Zacharias has an amazing mind... I think I read each paragraph of this book twice, just trying to pull more and more out of it each time. "

    " A must read twice! "

    " One of my friends recommended this book to me. I didn't really understand The Picture of Dorian Gray, and this book goes hand-in-hand with it. It's an imagined conversation between Jesus and Oscar Wilde. Very interesting. I love Ravi Zacharias' books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bevalie Cannon | 6/6/2012

    " Incredibly pertinent to the issues of today. Should be required reading for high school and college age people. Wonderful examination of worldview and society. Highly recommended! "

    " Awesome little book, taken from the perspective of a conversation between two incredibly brilliant people with two very different perspectives. Very relevant to our day and age. Ravi Zacharias has become a role model for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 1/26/2012

    " This is probably one of the best books I have ever read. In fact, I read it 3 times the weekend I got it. It's a very slim volume, but I love Oscar Wilde and I love Jesus. I think I'll go home tonight and read it again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mimi | 12/10/2011

    " A nice companion follow up to The Picture of Dorian Gray. Deep thinking required but rich. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 11/6/2011

    " Another great book in this series! An imaginary conversation between Oscar Wilde, Blaise Pascal, and Jesus Christ about some of life's most fascinating questions...especially those related to seeking joy and satisfaction. Very brief. Very insightful!! "

    " This book was difficult to read. Ravi is a great thinker. Much better at that then I am. I take life as it comes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Giju Abraham | 4/19/2011

    " Another interesting book by Ravi Zacharias. Here Jesus talks to Oscar Wilde on pleasure. Helped me realise a few truths about the futility of seeking pleasure in the world and to get my priorities right. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 3/26/2011

    " I think this book takes a great look at the relative humanism that seems to pervade and saturate our culture today; as to what end do actions have, and are there consequences to our actions , or is there such a thing as a moral vacuum? "

    " Almost more of an essay than a 'book', this writing was interesting. I'm more of a fan of Ravi's speaking than writing, but this had a nice period feel. It lacked any deep insights and actually made me just want to read more Wilde.

    A decent and very quick read. "
