Publisher's Description

The best of the best---stories, one-liners, and jokes from some of today’s funniest Christian speakers and best-selling writers This new book, like its best-selling predecessors, is packed with the kind of smiles and smirks, chuckles and giggles that thousands of readers have come to love and expect. It includes some of the funniest stories from today’s Christian writers like Barbara Johnson, John Ortberg, Mark Buchanan, Patsy Clairmont, Becky Freeman, Chonda Pierce, and more. Whether the topic is kids, marriage, pets, church, parenting, aging, or life’s most embarrassing moments, the writers will help you keep life in perspective by revealing their own foibles, follies, and failings. Realizing that laughter and faith can go hand in hand, they offer real-life anecdotes that will keep your world in balance even---and especially---when life gets tough.

Publisher's Weekly

Seasoned comedic authors Spangler (She Who Laughs, Lasts!) and MacDonald (Humor for the Heart) draw upon Christendom's funniest writers and speakers for some "laugh till you drop" stories, quips and anecdotes of life experiences. Well-regarded comediennes Barbara Johnson, Chonda Pierce, Patsy Clairmont, Luci Swindoll, Sheila Walsh and Marilyn Meberg are some of the many contributors. The target audience is clearly women, but a few male writers offer pieces as well: Christian comics Ken Davis and Mark Lowry add to the ensemble, along with syndicated columnist Dave Barry, who contributes a piece that is long on gender humor but devoid of Christian content. In over 75 hilarious stories, Spangler and MacDonald have accomplished their goal of finding joy amidst some of life's not-so-humorous happenings. With a simple twist in perspective and a quick nod toward heaven, the disastrous is transformed into the deliriously funny. Take Becky Freeman's step back into the college scene as a middle-aged wife and mother; on her first day, she receives a shock to her already stressed self-esteem. Enter a good friend/hairdresser boldly attempting to turn back the ravages of time with hair color, which ends up giving more color... but less hair. Illness, marriage, kids, money, eating, vacationing: no topic is out of range when a group of women, intent on seeing the sunny side of life, get together for a laugh. Regrettably, this compilation will likely only appeal to female readers, whose male counterparts won't see past the floral cover and predominantly female-oriented topics. (Jan.)
