Product Description

The stories in Bob Reed's delightful book are surefire spirit lifters that celebrate life and enrich the soul. Reed's seven tales not only come alive with hilarity and warmth, they show how God works through even the most bumbling and misdirected human efforts. Reed's humor is laced with insight, his descriptions with inspiration, and his characters with God's own love. In the lead story, "The Choir That Couldn't Sing," Reed's description of a hopelessly off-key church choir assembled from eccentrics and misfits will trigger gales of laughter. But tears are sure to flow when readers feel the impact of the choir's humble but grand, accomplishment. The book's other stories come equally alive with humor, insight, and inspiration that demonstrate how the least in the kingdom of heaven can touch the heart of God. 224 pages, softcover.

Church life can provide some of the funniest moments in existence. It doesn’t matter what denomination, God’s people come alive with hilarity and downright adventure. Bob Reed weaves funny stories in his new book, The Choir that Couldn’t Sing, a collection of tales about Methodist misfits who try a new sign language choir. In "The Great Episcopalian Bear Hunt," a fundraising event raises more than eyebrows or funds, and "Meanwhile, Back at the Manse" finds Presbyterian women refusing to fix their men folk any decent meals until they agree to convince the mayor to finance a new town playground.
Each lighthearted story is full of quips and comebacks. It’s much like a stand-up comedy routine that will keep readers laughing. All humor is in good taste and should not be offensive to any particular denomination.
Bob Reed is an accomplished writer who spent twenty-five years managing public television stations and serving as an executive at PBS. He has been a speaker at numerous national and international seminars and trade shows. Other humorous books he’s written include, The Potluck Dinner That Went Astray—and Other Tales of Christian Life, and How to Survive Being a Presbyterian.
Christians who need to unwind with a good laugh will find, The Choir That Couldn’t Sing a great addition to their library. It will keep readers rolling in the aisles. -- Beth Loughner, Christian Book Previews.com
