“Redeeming Pleasure” by Jeremy Jernigan

In this “post modern” generation, the terms “seeking pleasure” and “seeking God” are often considered to be mutually exclusive. However, pastor and author Jeremy Jernigan takes the reader outside the proverbial box. He addresses a number of issues that challenge the church of today. Creation theology, homosexuality in the church, parenting, entertainment, among others.

The message contained within is man’s pursuit of these things “of the flesh” demonstrates how we seek pleasure to fill various voids in life that are ultimately fulfilled only by the pleasure of a real relationship with Jesus Christ.

“Redeeming Pleasure” isn’t necessarily a title that would jump into my hands from the shelf of my local Christian bookstore. However, Pastor Jernigan offers some compelling arguments across the range of topics. While Jernigan’s theology is more liberal than my own, I still appreciate his zeal. This is a well-researched volume and fairly presented with strong scriptural support.

In this regard, for those seeking a new view of the relationship between seeking pleasure and seeking God, I can commend this work to you.

I received an advance reader’s copy of this title from the publisher in exchange for a fair, honest and timely review. There are no other ties or expectations from the publisher, author or this reviewer.
