Sometimes life hands you lemons. In this collection of jokes, autobiography, and personal philosophy, author and businessman Dr. J. T. Dock Houk makes an ocean of lemonade. Life’s a Joke compiles four books – “It’s All About Me,” “My Life with a Girl,” “Kids and Pets,” and “Life Around Us” – recounting 1,162 jokes, funny anecdotes, and descriptions of Sunday morning comics, clippings of which Dock has been collecting for an incredible amount of decades. As the author writes, “What I mean to convey by saying ‘life is a joke’ is that humor has helped me over some of the rough spots by showing me a side of life that either explains what I am feeling, or gives me a glimpse of something I also see. Humor, whose visual expression is often a joke, makes me smile or even laugh out loud. And sometimes, if you don’t laugh, you might cry.” So crack open Life’s a Joke and crack a smile. You might learn a little wisdom – but if not, at least you’ll get a laugh

Where is the proof? Why believe in something if there is no evidence? Also, why believe in something when there is evidence that runs contrary to a particular belief? This is basic logic and a reason why most deny a deity. Most who deny a deity argue there is no evidence. Also they point to scientific evidence to validate their skepticism.However, what if there is evidence and evidence that is overwhelming? Those who deny a deity have every right to demand evidence. Yet, what will they do when they are provided proof? The Bible advocates a God who is sovereign. If this is true everything points to his existence.God is not hiding, he wants to be known. BURDEN OF PROOF: Using Known Concepts to Reveal Eternal Truths, was written to identify the evidence of God's existence.The author answers forty thought-provoking questions that highlight the eternal truths of Scripture. Thus proving that the burden of proof does not lie with those who believe in God but with those who don't.

There Is a Difference

Not everyone who “supped” with Him received eternal life because betraying spiritual exclusivity was proof of disloyalty. ... The assumption that salvation is only a physical problem, is a spiteful joke, yet not a laughing matter.

In the last few years, Christians have expressed dissatisfaction with the course their church has taken. Theyve noticed shifting priorities. The trend is to rewrite and reinterpret Gods Word. In There Is a Difference, author Susan Seymour discusses this paradigm shift and communicates the need to return to the Jesus of the Bible. Through scriptural references and a collection of outside sources, Seymour shows the importance of discernment, especially for todays youth as they face a critical future and stand on the edge of a fatal spiritual cliff. This study examines discernment, the choice between good and evil, and differences between Christianity and other religions. There Is a Difference gives hope and assurance to parents and church leaders, teaching important differences between right and wrong in a day of uncertainty. It seeks to help Christians recognize clever but deceitful half-truths which have invaded much of todays spiritual information.

A member of the Pulitzer Prize jury, the late Frank McConnell helped science fiction gain standing as serious literature. His 16 essays herein were first presented as papers at the prestigious Eaton Conferences. Initially believing that science fiction is primarily one of many forms of storytelling, McConnell gradually recognized science fiction as a modern expression of Gnosticism, rejecting bodily concerns for an emphasis on spirituality.

Britain’s hottest young comedian presents a seriously funny, up-close look at joking matters—from the social origins of laughter, to the art and craft of humor, to why we can never remember the punch line—featuring over 300 jokes. As the host of the hit game show Distraction (now in its third season on Comedy Central) and one of the premier stand-up acts working today, award-winning comedian Jimmy Carr has won over millions of fans around the world with his trademark rapier wit, laced with "exquisitely economical and perfectly timed one-liners" (The Guardian). For this book he teams up with friend and fellow comedy writer Lucy Greeves to take an in-depth look at where humor comes from and how it works, through exploring its purest form: the joke. Only Joking begins with the mechanism of laughter—how it happens and why even infants do it—then delves into the power of the punch line, exploring the basics of all jokes, from the use of shock and surprise to advanced stand-up techniques such as the "pull-back/reveal." Carr and Greeves go on to explore taboo humor, jokes that bomb, and the psychology of finding something funny. They look into the long-standing connection between politics and humor, and discuss the survival prospects for contentious jokes in the current political climate. Throughout the book they conjure up a supporting cast of colorful joke enthusiasts, from Sigmund Freud to Lenny Bruce, and discuss their influence on the jokes we tell today. Surveying across national, ethnic, and gender divides, this rollicking analysis of why joking will always be close to the human heart is an irresistible exploration of humor that makes clear why we need a good laugh now more than ever.
