Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor? Certainly not three-time Emmy Award winner Gene Perret, who's laughed his way through life while he has earned his living writing jokes for such illuminaries as Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller, Carol Burnett, Bill Cosby and a host of others. On the 8th Day . . . God Laughed! is Perret's 17th book and contains 900 jokes, arranged alphabetically by topic and fully indexed, to make them readily accessible for writers, speakers, and yes--even preachers. Perret says God created the world, and us, in six days. On the seventh day, He rested, but I believe that there was an eighth day when He sat back and had a good, hearty laugh. If one word describes our relationship with God and His relationship with us, it's joy. What can be more joyous than a big belly laugh? Topics that honor the Creator while they tickle your funnybone include heaven, hell, the great flood, judgment day, loaves and fish, Noah's ark, prayer, and the Ten Commandments.
