Reviews - What do customers think about Humorous Happenings in Holy Places?
A Joyful Experience Jan 31, 2006
Some people may think humor and religion do not mix, but Barbara Eubanks, author of "Humorous Happenings in Holy Places," is not one of them. She has documented 101 incidents that have been observed or have happened to her, as wife of a minister, to her husband, children and grandchildren which are delightful and uplifting to read. It's those out-of-place happenings in church, such as an intruding horsefly, bird or dog causing havoc among the choir or the congregation that bring on the laughs. Author Eubanks has caught the essence of "what right at the wrong time or what's wrong at the right time" which accounts for much of the humor. She seems to be saying that God has given us the ability to laugh at ourselves, for when He created us He created humor as a sunny companion. The book carries one beyond humor, however, to related Scriptures which can be used in daily devotionals. Excellent work.

A Fun Read Sep 30, 2005
Humorous Happenings in Holy Places is a fun read. With warmth and insight, the author shares funny moments taken from the land of the Holy. I especially enjoyed a story she told on herself. It involved a bottle of cough syrup that looked more like a bottle of booze. When she tried to sneak a drink in a Sunday School class, she received some strange looks. This is only one example of 101 humorous happenings. This book would be an excellent gift for a new Christian. It reminds us all that we are only human. We all make mistakes-and they can prove to be hilarious ones.
