If you search for the word coffee in the Bible, if you're pretty sure that all the pairs of animals in Noah's Ark were married, and if you think tuna hotdish is okay but fishsticks are a little too ecumenical, you'll find humor in Growing Up Lutheran. If the Lutherans you know seem rather, er, mysterious, it will do you good. Combining their own memories with those of other Lutherans who grew up in the 1940s through the 1960s, co-authors Janet Martin and Suzann Nelson have created a delightful portrait of life as a Lutheran, from the moment of baptism (And His Name Shall Be Called Gilman Einar Stedje) until death (He Is Not Gone, He Is Only Away). In between, you'll get the inside scoop on the Lutheran Church Basement Women, Lutefisk suppers, pew protocol, Haybelly Hanson's views on clapping in church, and much more. Martin and Nelson are two 100 percent Norwegian Lutheran Farm Girls who have taken their religion on the road. The Minnesota residents have written six books together and are in demand as humorists, speaking together and individually in church basements, at country fairs, synod retreats, etc. They are also having hot flashes and documenting these experiences.

    " One of the funniest books I have ever read! I laughed through the entire book - because it's all the things I remembered - from growing up Lutheran! "

    " You might have to be Lutheran/grown up Lutheran to really enjoy this as much as I did! Fondly humorous, it was really cute! This is where the popular "The Church Basement Ladies" plays began! I'll continue to enjoy more of this author's writing! She has several humorous books about Lutherans. "
