God [has] not made mankind to be miserable. Being a Christian [does] not mean the absence of pleasure. Much to the contrary, God [has] made mankind to experience unending delight and joy in Him, to be happier and happier as knowledge of God increase[s], and to constantly soak up the sweetest pleasure the world affords in the life of faith - all of which flow together to constitute “the good life”…any life created by the majestic, undomesticated, loving god of the Bible [can] not be mundane or boring.
