Sense and Sensuality Jesus Talks to Oscar Wilde on the Pursuit of Pleasure Free download Ê 104 ð 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 uestion Openly defied the s of Victorian society His literary repartee fueled an if it feels good do it humanistic philosophy that is still prevalent in the world todaySO WHAT does JESUS SA. This imaginary dialogue between Oscar Wilde and Jesus is very interesting and insightful into the complexities of beauty pleasure and passion There are whole sections that I'm sure I will visit over and over because of the wisdom they contain However I always think this when I read Ravi he's a much better speaker than author For a book about Oscar Wilde who wrote preeminently beautiful prose and poetry it is lacking the syntactic elegance that one would expect Also some of the dialogue seems to be a little contrived All in all a great book though

S uestion about critical lifestyle choices Their talk vividly illustrates the arguments for both sensual pleasure seeking and moral moderationPlaywright dramatist poet critic Wilde. Before reading this book I didn’t know much about Wilde’s Is “trivial” too much I don’t want to exaggerate personal life The truth about him struck me while discovering how sensitive Ravi Zacharias touched this subject through the characters he brought in dialogue with Oscar Wilde Jesus Christ and Blaise Pascal before his death The wonderful serendipity in choosing Pascal was the fact that Zacharias didn’t know about Wilde’s interest in him his reason being totally different Going through the dialogue touching Wilde’s life concerns heart sins one can see a loving gentle Jesus who is answering to Wilde’s uestions about ‘pleasures and satisfaction’ The author’s compassion heart who is not condemning writer’s ‘wild’ life is seen also in the end when he is explaining the reason of writing this book reminding of one of the Lord’s parables that fits so much to Wild’s death I would recommend this book to be read after Wilde’s “The Portrait of Dorian Grey” because in a subtle way there are references to it Asta i o caracteristica ciudata a oamenilorsunt preocupati de faima lor chiar si atunci cind nu vor mai fi de fata ca sa se bucure de ea

In many ways I find that when I read a book and give it a great review there are others who read the same book and give it a less than palatable review I realize with this book that there are simply certain books with certain elements that affect you in a profound way at the time you read them They are special to your development at that moment Like they are issued and governed by an outside element who picks the book for you to read when you do I had read Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray and enjoyed it immensely and therefore this book made sense to me from that angle I would like to outline three uotes which made this book resonate within me at this place and time in my life Jesus in talking about HIS prophet Isaiah saysHe tells of a thirsty man who went to sleep one night and dreamed he was drinking from gushing springs of cool water only to wake up and find he was still thirsty Such is the illusion under which a generation flirts with beauty and art and thinks they take precedence over truth They'll awaken one day and find that their dream has left them still empty You see this is the danger First art imitates life Then life imitates art Finally art becomes they very reason for life and that's when life breaks down because life is not fictionit is plain hard factIt is vain that men and women seek within themselves the cure for all their miseries All their insight leads us only to the knowledge that it is not in ourselves that we discover the true and the goodour principal maladies are pride which cuts us off from God and sensuality which binds us to earthIn speaking of Solomon Jesus saysBut in the end he concluded that love for God is the paramount protection against the pollution of desire And that love should start when one is youngEvery power known to man comes with a double edge the knowledge to use it properly and the other the great capacity to abuse itAs I said in the beginning there are simply some books which resonate within you at a given time I regard no other less than profound reviews with being wrong but simply read at a time when the lesson is less than extremely important for the place and time in life
