The Secret of Sacrificial Self-Service: Discovering the Spiritual Incentives of Christian Hedonism
May 23, 2020
T. Dougherty
Non-fiction: Religion/Spirituality
From one end of the Bible to the other, God encourages our whole-hearted search for pleasure and satisfaction. The central message of Christian Hedonism is that self-interest is not a curse, but a great blessing from God.

Synopsis: Drawing deeply from the well of biblical wisdom and channeling the insights of historic Christian thinkers such as Augustine of Hippo, Jonathan Edwards, Soren Kierkegaard, C.S. Lewis, and John Piper, the author argues that the Bible everywhere commands us to pursue a redeemed variety of self-interest. When Jesus said “store up for yourselves treasures in heaven...for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:20-21), this is not merely a fortunate option for the Christian, but a divine imperative. Our Lord commanded us to pursue treasure in heaven with all of our strength and to thereby strive to get our hearts into heaven while yet on earth!
