This humor filled book offers a seriously funny theological reflection on the place of laughter and humor in pastoral counseling. Blending academic research, psychological insights, and pastoral advice, Laughter Ever After is intended to help those who want to be "Ministers of Good Humor." Readers will be entertained by the dozens of witty jokes throughout the text, but also gain insight by pondering Capps's pastoral perspective of these humorous quips. Written for a wide audience, Laughter Ever After will serve as a great tool for any pastor, minister, or churchgoer. It can even be used as a self-help book for anyone in need of a laugh or who appreciates a good joke. By showing us exactly where humor's place is in ministry, Capps teaches readers that laughter, while not truly medicine, certainly can help in any situation.
