Item description for And God Created Laughter: The Bible as Divine Comedy by Conrad Hyers & M. Conrad Hyers...

Overview
Recognizing "a playful spirit" as part of our human makeup, Conrad Hyers shows how laughter and humor are integral to our serious study of the Bible. With the darker realities of the Bible--sin, suffering, and death--there exists a lighter side--laughter, humor, and playfulness. Competent biblical study, Hyers explains, requires both perspectives. This highly readable, preachable, and teachable work gives ministers, students, and lay readers a valuable tool for recovering the spirit of humor and offers a chance to share in the celebration of life and the divine comedy of faith, hope, and love.

Reviews - What do customers think about And God Created Laughter: The Bible as Divine Comedy?

A little bit dated, but a fun book to read on a rainy day  Aug 16, 2000
Ok I believe laughter is the best medicine, and seriously I have always seen the Bible to have intensely funny moments. This book displays the humor and the comedy in the bible in a lovely way. SO many people say 'the bible is SO boring, but this book allows you to see the fun stories, the laughter, they humor and then take that and add it to the original verses. Result: You will get more people interested in hearing about all the bible characters and stories. Definately a good book.
