Item description for He Who Laughed First: Delighting in a Holy God by Phil Needham...
Overview Can you picture God laughing? He does, you know. In fact, strangely to some, He's the One who created laughter! Whey, then, are we so likely to think of the Creator as a perpetually somber dictator so overwhelmed by the world's problems that He has no time for humor or anything remotely related to it? Such a view is far removed from what the Scriptures tell us about a God who loves laughing with His children and delighting in His creation. Author Phil Needham presents some startling revelations to believers who are seeking to know their God to the fullest. He points out that not only did Jesus laugh, but He encouraged His followers to laugh, to delight in God's grace - a grace that flies in the face of Satan and catches an unsuspecting world by surprise. Open your mind and heart to a deeper understanding of God. Throw off the cloud of solemnity. It's time to rejoice!
Publishers Description Seriousness about holy living is one thing. Seriousness in holy living is quite another. Two words rarely snuggled together in the same phrase are hilarity and Holiness. Yet, author Phil Needham challenges us to explore the joyful nature of God and take a look at the manifestations of His unique sense of humor, both here on earth and in heaven. Allow the holy God who created laughter and love to teach you how to embrace and reflect the exceptional nature of joy. Paper.
