Overview

Laughter and tears. Somehow they go hand in hand. Just when you’re in the midst of sobbing, laughter erupts. It’s in these moments of laughter and tears that we often find unexpected truth. In this heart-warming collection of true-to-life vignettes, best-selling author Carol Kent combines inspirational stories, hilarity, and sorrow to illustrate the joys and trials of life.

Sometimes God is where you least expect Him to be: “Sometimes months or even years after experiencing a life event, I figure out the why,” she writes in Detours, Tow Trucks, and Angels in Disguise. “As I view the situation in the light of God’s Word and ask Him to reveal what He wants to teach me—only then do I discover the truth He wanted me to learn.”

You’ll laugh and cry as you listen to God’s voice in the funny, poignant, and inspirational stories and situations that make life so worth living. And you’ll find yourself reflecting on the stories of your own life, seeing God’s grace at work in you. Tyndale House Publishers

Editorial Reviews

Communicator
"Here is a winning book! It's for laity to read for inspiration and clergy to read for inspiration and sermon illustrations. The book's moods cover tragedy, hilarity, and all degrees in between. Excellent writing style; crisp, moving, and contemporary. I can't urge preachers and teachers too strongly to get this book. It's exceptional." — The Communicator, May 1997
