This book explores the place of comedy in the Hebrew Bible. It shows how the comic vision plays a profound and pervasive role in such central biblical books as Genesis, Exodus, Esther, Jonah, Job and the Song of Songs. Arguing that comedy often moves between the poles of satiric attack and joyous celebration, the study highlights how biblical comedy serves as a vital strategy to deal with death and despair and to revel in the laughter of life and love.

Madis
A different way of looking at Torah, particularly at the Exodus narrative. "Humor" is not a word one hears much in this context, but the late Dr. Whedbee makes a very persuasive argument.

The benefit of Whedbee's book is that it offers a fresh, new perspective to the Old Testament. If you are conservative in your understanding of the Bible, you often miss some important information in your seriousness in dealing with the Scriptures. If you are more modern in your reading of the text, you might easily pass over much of the data as outdated remnants of a bygone culture. The comic reading of the Old Testament offers a correction to either extremes.
While I cannot say that I agree with all his conclusions, I have found this a valuable read as I teach the text of Genesis -- and it has opened new doors to other places in the Scriptures.
