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.

    " Ted Dekker's fiction revolutionized the way I looked at "Christian Fiction," and that same power is prevalent in this book as well. I highly recommend it. As for the subject matter, the title says it all. His premise is that Christians have fallen asleep to the hope of heaven. It is this hope that keeps us going in this life, and heaven is our ultimate prize. We will never find fulfillment in life on earth till we long for heaven. "
