First Look blog tour for Redeeming Pleasure by Jeremy Jernigan @Worthypub @jeremyjernigan



REDEEMING PLEASURE
by Jeremy Jernigan
How the Pursuit of Pleasure Mirrors Our Hunger for God
Our culture has turned pleasure into a highly-charged word. For some it’s a sexual word bringing with it ideas of wild debauchery and unspeakable fantasies. That’s often combined with a healthy dose of shame and guilt. But pleasure is part of creation that is very good. God created boundaries around pleasure not to keep you from enjoying it but to show you how to experience it to the fullest. How you experience pleasure turns out to be a fundamental part of your journey with God, or lack thereof.

Cassandra's Review-  If you are strong in your faith and find this book, it will be worth the read.  I felt that the author is blessed in his spiritual knowledge and strong in his faith.  Even though I would not personally take on the topics and views the exact way, I do appreciate learning other aspects and reading the great stories in between.
