Publisher's Description

Find Out What’s So Funny When Nothing’s Funny

Sometimes life just stinks—people disappoint, bad things happen, and hardship comes. Laughing Matters is a collection of stories that shows the difference between those who resign and those who rejoice when reality bites. Readers will be encouraged to choose joy, to find hope, and to discover the abundant life Christ offers all who follow Him. Author and humorist Phil Callaway—once described as "Dave Barry with a message"—employs his revealing and hilarious style to remind readers that, "it’s always darkest just before the fridge door opens."

Do you resign or rejoice when reality bites?

Sometimes life just stinks. People disappoint. Bad things happen. Hardship comes in double helpings. The last thing you want to do is laugh. So let hilarious humorist Phil Callaway show you—as only he can—that some of the darkest times are those just before the fridge door opens.

"Everything Phil Callaway writes is full of life because he’s discovered a fabulous secret: The joy of Christ doesn’t go away, even when life is a mess."

Luis Palau, President of the Luis Palau Evangelistic Association

"Phil really knows how to get in touch with his spiritual funny bone."

Janette Oke, Bestselling author

"One page into this book and I’m quaking with laughter. Callaway has the uncanny ability to uncover the funny in any situation and report it with inspirational wit."

Paul L. Maier, Coauthor of The DaVinci Code: Fact or Fiction?

"This book is an excellent source of encouragement for anyone in the midst of a crisis who may be asking God that hardest question of all: ’Why?’"

Martha Bolton, Author of Cooking with Hot Flashes and Didn’t My Skin Used to Fit?

Story Behind the Book

Phil Callaway wrote this book after a five-year journey he and his wife embarked upon when she began having seizures. He discovered that when life throws you curve balls, juices lemons in your eyes, scrunches you in a knuckle sandwich…the last thing you want to do is laugh. And at the moment we realize that life can just plain stink, "this book helps us know where to go from that point," he says. Celebrities like Dave Dravecky, Barbara Johnson, Gloria Gaither, and Joni Eareckson Tada have endorsed Callaway’s positive approach to trials. "Everything Phil Callaway writes is full of life because he’s discovered a fabulous secret: The joy of Christ doesn’t go away, even when life is a mess," says evangelist Luis Palau.

    This book is encouraging and light-hearted, but still addresses the deep pains we experience in life. I have given several copies to friends who need truth and hope. I have met the author and he is warm, genuine, down to earth, approachable, and funny. Great book written by a great man.
