Publisher's Description

How Christian standup comedians help us toward a more holistic faith.


Overview


Laughter, they say, is the best medicine. Indeed, there is some evidence that laughing (as well as faith and prayer) can help cure disease. In this study, based on Marshall Allen s review of Christian standup comedians, we will look at the role that humor plays in the lives of Christians and in the Bible.
