Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Seasoned comedic authors Spangler (She Who Laughs, Lasts!) and MacDonald (Humor for the Heart) draw upon Christendom's funniest writers and speakers for some "laugh till you drop" stories, quips and anecdotes of life experiences. Well-regarded comediennes Barbara Johnson, Chonda Pierce, Patsy Clairmont, Luci Swindoll, Sheila Walsh and Marilyn Meberg are some of the many contributors. The target audience is clearly women, but a few male writers offer pieces as well: Christian comics Ken Davis and Mark Lowry add to the ensemble, along with syndicated columnist Dave Barry, who contributes a piece that is long on gender humor but devoid of Christian content. In over 75 hilarious stories, Spangler and MacDonald have accomplished their goal of finding joy amidst some of life's not-so-humorous happenings. With a simple twist in perspective and a quick nod toward heaven, the disastrous is transformed into the deliriously funny. Take Becky Freeman's step back into the college scene as a middle-aged wife and mother; on her first day, she receives a shock to her already stressed self-esteem. Enter a good friend/hairdresser boldly attempting to turn back the ravages of time with hair color, which ends up giving more color... but less hair. Illness, marriage, kids, money, eating, vacationing: no topic is out of range when a group of women, intent on seeing the sunny side of life, get together for a laugh. Regrettably, this compilation will likely only appeal to female readers, whose male counterparts won't see past the floral cover and predominantly female-oriented topics.

Format: Paperback
The book, "Don't Stop Laughing Now! Stories to tickle your funny bone and strengthen your faith" compiled by Ann Spangler and Shari MacDonald is written in order to provide some laughter and hilarity for the small and big things that happens throughout our lives. The collection of funny stories by different authors from different walks of life provides an interesting take and perspective of life and provides us with an encouragement of how to respond to life situations. It also allows us to remember that circumstances are beyond our control and that God is, the author and finisher of things, and that He does have a sense of humor as well.

This book is light and can be a perfect book read for a getaway. It is a delightful break to a usual array of "serious Christian books" and provides us the other side of the Christian life that can be enjoyed as well.

I received a free copy of this book from Zondervan in exchange for a
review. I was not asked to write a positive review in exchange for a
copy, but choose to write a review that is constructive, honest and
helpful to other consumers.

This book was not as funny as I expected, however it is very heartwarming and fun to read. When life is crazy and stress threatens to consume you, read this book. The multiple authors will keep you guessing what the next chapter will be like. I read the whole book out loud to my family as we drove across country and it only took 2 days to read.

This is the first Ann Spangler book I purchased. It is a gift but I took a quick read. Honest, clean and uplifting are the words that immediately come to mind regarding this book.
So much so I ended up buying another of her books.
A great gift idea ... and of course great to keep too!

I purchased this book as a gift for my daughter, but I did look through it and read a few of the chapter. Still laughing over several of the short stories. Written from experience!! Would definitely recommend this - light and funny.

More About the Author

Ann Spangler is an award-winning author, publishing her first book, an instant bestseller, in 1994. Since then, she has gone on to write several bestselling books, including Women of the Bible (co-authored with Jean Syswerda), Praying the Names of God, Praying the Names of Jesus, and Sitting at the Feet of Rabbi Jesus (co-authored with Lois Tverberg). Her latest book is Praying the Attributes of God. Together her books have sold millions of copies.

In 2013 she was named the Logos Bookstore Author of the Year, an award given to an author "whose body of works expemplifies the power of books to change lives forever."

By paying attention to the spiritual and emotional hungers that animate us and by finding creative ways to explore God's self-revelation in Scripture, her writing surprises by revealing a God who is often far bigger and better than we might imagine.

In addition to writing, Ann has enjoyed a lengthy career in Christian publishing, working for William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, Servant Publications, and Zondervan Publishing in marketing, editorial, and management roles. Her broad experience in publishing has convinced her that readers are looking for well-written books that explore the connection between spiritual experience and everyday life, books that both engage the mind and strengthen the heart.
