Kurzbeschreibung

Laughter Is Good For The Soul

Remember when religion was fun? (Neither do I) This book dares to make religion fun again by taking you on a funny trip from Biblical times to the present tackling such controversial topics as God, Jesus, the Crusades, Spanish Inquisition, suicide bombers, the Bible, evolution, gay marriage, abortion, and life after death. Since religion isn’t so fun anymore, more people than ever are becoming atheists. The New Atheist movement has many people deluded about God, even though many still think God is great. This movement is waging war on Christianity and wants religion abolished in the modern world. They think that religion has brought far more harm than good to the world, and enslaves people to irrational thinking. Are they right? Refuting atheism and defending Christianity are no easy tasks. This book attempts to prove God’s existence by showing how God revealed Himself to the world. First, He revealed Himself to the Jews and got them out of more than a few jams. Then, He became a man named Jesus and walked the Earth in sandals. Next, the Catholic Church came along and said it had all the answers, until Protestants came along and said the same thing. Of course, much fighting ensued, but maybe the world was better for it. Understanding and obeying God are no easy tasks. Today, we are living in the post-Christian era. Entertainment is America’s new religion and promotes a secular agenda. Have you noticed that pop culture is nothing but a brainwash for accepting immorality? Probably not, since every movie you see and every song you hear seems to subtly treat sex and violence like they are life’s highest virtues. Entertainment wants to win over the youth, so they can forget God as early as possible. Is going to church nearly as fun as today’s entertainment? Now that you’re a follower of God, is He done with you? Absolutely not, He wants you to be with Him forever! He has plans to defeat the Devil once and for all, and rapture all Christians up to Heaven! Jesus is supposed to return to Earth and beat the Antichrist in the Battle of Armageddon. The End Times are approaching, so it’s best to know about God and His plans before it’s too late. So sit back, relax, and have a little fun with God and religion. It might just save your soul.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Evangelism With A Sense Of Humor??!! 23. Januar 2014
Von John C. Wilkey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
You read the title correctly. It's the sort of thing one would never know existed until they discovered it for themselves. That is exactly what will happen when you buy this book. You will discover that you can open your mind to this devout Christian author and he will reward you with a very rare and wry wit. The effect is conversational, an exchange of ideas that one might not expect from this genre. It is not ponderous nor is it academic. Its tone is almost child-like in the way it manages to circumvent the typical tension triggered by this sort of discussion. In this way, it achieves what so many Bible scholars and preachers wish they could. It remains accessible from front to back. It does not close the door on you while still managing to stand its ground and make its points. This sort of writing is brave and the experience of reading it can actually be described as fun. Who would have thought?

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book puts a smile on your face, while making this world a holier place. 20. Januar 2014
Von Jonathan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The author of this unique book demonstrates unrivaled ability to fuse together comedic wit, and a passion for Christianity. The pure knowledge that is conveyed through this magnificently worded writing is astounding. When you couple that with the author's artistically wry sense of humor, you will find that every matter is discussed in a way that keeps you enjoying even the most "danced" around topics pertaining to religion. I beyond strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves to laugh (everyone), to all who want to expand their knowledge of Christianity, and to all who question the existence of God. Enjoy!! :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen I can't wait for the movie 2. Januar 2015
Von S. Cassell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
My take on Don't Blame God For Religion is colored by the fact that I am Jewish, a former professional joke writer/performer, and I have the attention span of an 8 week old puppy. That being said, I do possess an open mind (it was on loan from a close friend), and I took frequent breaks to nosh on some great kugala while reading this book.

I was struck by several things. First, I appreciated Mr. Pollard's humor in dealing with such a serious and often controversial topic. Actually, he makes it clear throughout his book that religion can be fun. As a former joke writer and instructor I really enjoyed his use of non-sequiturs and my favorite comedy vehicle, parodies. Coincidentally (or was this God's plan?), I had just re-watched a Few Good Men, and particularly appreciated using the parody of the Tom Cruise-Jack Nicholson court scene to describe how Colonel Jessup gave the "Code Red" order to kill Jesus.

I found the book very entertaining and informative. I have honestly never understood the Holy Trinity until now. The way Mr. Pollard explained it made it comprehensible to me, even without pictures and charts.

I also appreciated the respectful way he spoke of the Jewish role in history and religion, as well as his references to both the Old Testament (Who you calling Old?) and the New Testament.

I was amazed by the scope of the topics he covered. I am also an author, and if I ever attempted such an ambitious project my head would explode.

Did I agree with everything I read? Of course not. For starters, I do believe there have been times, past and present, where a great deal of damage has been done in the name of religion, and in that regard, I have problems with any religion that promotes or protects those who would do harm under a religious banner.

Yet, I do grasp the central premise of the book. God didn't create religion, man did, and each religion has its own take on what they think is the proper way to relate to God. For Jews, it entails not only prayer and ritual, but a lot of great food.

It's a good book, and a worthwhile entertaining read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An entertaining and humorous look at evangelism and the case for God 15. März 2015
Von Brian Hartman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As a non-believer, I came to this book with some skepticism. I'm still a non-believer, but I came away with a better understanding of Christian history and I thought Pollard's examination of the Holocaust was evenhanded and interesting.

Throughout the book, Pollard mixes humor with his history. This allows even a non-believer like me to pick up the book and take the message in good humor. As they say, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. The humor is uneven at times, and I wasn't always 100% sure if Pollard was being serious or joking in the first read, but overall, his tone throughout the book makes his message accessible to readers (or at least, *this* reader).

As a piece of evangelism, I think this book is as good as it gets. Those of us who've been around for a while have heard many of the arguments that Pollard puts forward before, but he does it in such an entertaining and accessible way that you can approach the arguments with fresh eyes. Pollard definitely has his point of view , but you won't come away feeling lectured. You'll come away feeling entertained, and that's what good writing does.
