Darden (journalism & Black Gospel Music Restoration Project, Baylor Univ.; People Get Ready! A New History of Black Gospel Music) is senior editor of The Wittenberg Door, a beloved religious satire magazine, on- and offline. Not surprisingly, his latest book recommends laughter and humor as important and even essential components of Christian life. He strains to find humor within Christian scripture itself-instances of the words laugh and laughter are as likely to suggest cruel mockery-but he is on better ground when he advocates laughter as part of the joy of the fulfilled spiritual life.
