Item description for Take Your Hat Off, Son! by Charles Simpson...
Overview A humorous look at ministers, church life, and the strange and funny things Christians say and do. From hilarious one-liners to true stories from his own life, Charles will get you laughing. Here are just two examples: * A pastor made a list of 357 sins mentioned in the Bible. Later, he got a lot of requests from people who were interested in getting the list. They were afraid they had missed a few! * A fellow said to his pastor, "Pastor, your words are like water to a drowning man." The author draws on his many years of ministry to poke a little fun at preachers and church life.

For such a slim book, this one packs in a lot of laughs, insights, and coming of age stories that ring utterly true. Simpson has long been known as having a unique and powerful gift of using humor to make a serious spiritual point, and this book does not disappoint on that front...though, it should be noted, the author's purpose here is not primarily to get "deep" theologically, but to collect some of his favorite anecdotes, jokes, and personal life stories from nearly 50 years of ministry and travel. It's highly enjoyable and highly recommended!
