Son of Laughter: A Novel

The Son of Laughter - Frederick Buechner Buechner has a realistic, earthly understanding of our faith which helps offset the sanctified versions we too often read. His story of Jacob holds true to the Biblical version of course, but he adds the dirt and sand into the mix. Similar to what Kazantzakis did earlier, but with a far more theologically sound basis.
