Ken Davis has grown up. Well, in a way. He is still the same overgrown kid-in-a-man's-body who has enthralled America's youth for years with his special brand of hilarity and perceptiveness. But in Lighten Up! Davis takes his storytelling skills up a notch to deliver a message to adults: "You don't have to be perfect; God loves you the way you are. Don't take yourself so seriously; instead, enjoy life and all its ups and downs".
Davis fights the conventional wisdom that Christians don't have problems, and through real-life, humorous stories, he bolsters those who feel bogged down by the pressures and expectations of daily life. Just as he does in his popular speaking and radio ministry, Davis moves his readers to laughter, tears, and action. When they catch their breath, readers will realize that not only is this guy funny, but he also has some pretty wise insights into life. Each story is tied into Scripture and delivers a meaningful thought for readers to take away and apply to their own lives.
