Ev 65 Laughing at Unbelief: Is There a Place for Satire in Evangelism? (2004)


Surely we shouldn't laugh at other people's beliefs? At some important points, the Bible appears to encourage us to do just that! Satire is in fact a powerful weapon in exposing hypocrisy and uncovering unbelief.

Simon Foulkes and Gary Jenkins show how prevalent satire is in contemporary culture, how the Bible uses it, and why it might be the perfect tool in a post-modern culture. They also consider carefully how to use it in a loving way - and how much fun it can be!
