Customer Reviews of The Son Of Laughter

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buechner: One of the Best Christian Novelists Having clearly researched life and cultures in the Patriarchal Period, Buechner spares no pains in recreating the earthy reality of nomadic life in the ancient middle-east. For that reason, some Christians may find his portrayal of the patriarchs offensive or obscene. However, in recounting the lives of these biblical figures in this earthy way, Buechner conveys with exceptional acumen the grace and enduring love of God.
