Pleasure. We live in a world obsessed with finding it, passionate about enjoying it, and desperate about maintaining it. Chief among such objects of affection are sex and money—two pleasures unequaled in their power to captivate our attention and demand our worship. In what is sure to become an instant classic, popular author Paul David Tripp pulls back the curtain on the lies of our flesh and the ways we distort God’s good gifts, examining the insanity of our culture and exposing our tendency to fall prey to the hollow promises of this world. In exploring how God’s grace frees us from futile pursuits, Tripp directs readers to the wisdom of God in Scripture and the liberating power of the gospel, offering practical guidance on finding true joy and enduring satisfaction.

Loved it!
I came a bit skeptical since it was written by a "Christian celebrity" and I've decided to stop reading books from celebrities, but I have to admit that God really ushered me to His Gospel, one more time with this servant, and how transparent and humbling was this book for the author. It gave me hope!

Vision correction for the soul
This helped me see more clearly both the tragedy of my own idolatries and, mercifully, God's gloriously sufficient, overflowing grace (for those who accept it.)
The reader's voice reminds me of a southern grandfather type, and he helped me digest many of these penetrating, hard truths just a little bit easier.

Wise, biblical, practical and hopeful!
My husband and I listened to this book together and found Tripp's perspective very helpful, realistic and encouraging. His thesis is that the corrupt world is not the cause of our struggles with sex and money, but rather the misplaced affections of our hearts cause us to be wrongly drawn to these. So the key to change is not to be an ascetic but to make God the functional ruler of our hearts, and to ask his forgiveness and help when we fall short. We have been talking with our sons about their struggles with pornography and sexual purity, and this book presents a sober yet hopeful approach to change. We hadn't thought about addressing money issues, so that is a bonus to us, since it is also an area that we have not adequately prepared our sons to handle. We are listening to and discussing the book as a family now, and appreciate this biblical perspective on two important and often avoided issues.
