Fill These Hearts

Best-selling author Christopher West on a life-altering journey through classical art, pop music, and film by way of the Christian mystical tradition. Along the way, Fill These Hearts blows the lid off the idea of Christianity as a repressive, anti-sex religion and unveils the hidden truth of life -- that the restless yearnings we feel in both our bodies and our spirits are the very cry of our hearts for God.

According to West, God does not want us to repress our desires nor does He want us to seek immediate gratification by indulging our desires. Instead, God wants us to sublimate the world’s pleasures and to ready our hearts for the banquet He has prepared for each of us. In Fill These Hearts, West seeks to help us aim our desire according to God’s design and to safely obtain our destiny – eternal bliss and ecstasy in union with God.
