Comedic and Inspirational memoir from the stand-up comic who popularized the saying “Happy Wife, Happy Life”. Leave it to a comedian to uncover his spirituality by delving into the Bible’s most melancholic book. For years, one of the wittiest individuals in America concealed his inner pain. Jeff Allen, a comedian, had a leading role in a tragedy. Born into a challenging working-class family in Chicago, Allen became entangled in substance abuse at a young age, and these issues did not simply vanish when he got married. As a matter of fact, they only intensified with the arrival of his two children. The feeling that his life was devoid of purpose made his family life as bleak and caustic as his comedy. However, in his darkest moment, an unexpected encounter with the most melancholic book of the Bible set him on a path towards redemption.
The very first words of Ecclesiastes, “Meaningless, meaningless, all in life is meaningless,” struck a chord with him. He persevered and continued reading, eventually stumbling upon the Source of true meaning. In due course, Allen found himself with a revitalized marriage and a renewed purpose in his career. If you have ever struggled to find significance in your own life, then this book is a must-read. Through his distinctive humor and unwavering honesty, Allen will guide you to the only One who can provide an answer to the question, “Are we there yet?” Rest assured, you will know when you have arrived.
