God Mocks, by Terry Lindvall

Although the title refers to divine mocking, this volume focuses primarily on the ways people mock one another around religious beliefs and practices. Tracing satire through the history of religious thought, professor and film producer Terry Lindvall locates each mocker on two scales: from humor to rage, and from ridicule to moral purpose.

Philosophy in Seven Sentences, by Douglas Groothuis

This book will not shatter paradigms or destabilize worldviews. It will make readers think, and sometimes laugh, as they are introduced to (or fondly recall) the thought of Protagoras, Socrates, Aristotle, Augus­tine, Descartes, Pascal, and Kierke­gaard. Groothuis, who teaches philosophy at Denver Seminary, is known as a Christian apologist.
