    A comedian who has done his homework can shake up the establishment, wearing a dead-pan face, and have the rest of us rolling in the aisles. In laughter and Grace Ken Baker suggests that Jesus, who surely knows mankind better than anyone, may have taken a similarly wry approach. Almost tongue-in-cheek this "prophet" pointed out where we were going wrong and where we might go right. Those who didn't want to hear it crucified him. But the author suggests that those who did want to hear - and who understood what he was saying - found delight, joy, and even laughter in his words. Writing not as a learned theologian (although he is) but more like a friend discussing something wonderful Ken Baker re-presents the words of Jesus as they might have been understood in their time and shows that their original context, while still one of repentance, has far more wonder, delight, and even laughter than modern readers might realise. Jesus wasn’t a comedian but when you look at the people... More > he had (and has) to deal with a senses of humour would be very necessary. In Laughter And Grace Ken Baker explores the wonder of Grace and, through his understanding of the situations and the people involved, encourages us to have a few laughs with the Lord. Laughter And Grace is a refreshing treat for people of faith and may well be a gateway book for those who are interested ... but are put off by all the supposed sobriety.< Less
