|Title:||WHAT’S SO FUNNY ABOUT FAITH A Memoir from the Intersection of Hilarious and Holy|
Jake Martin, SJ
|Number of pages:||224|
Is Martin’s memoir filled with humorous anecdotes that span his relatively young life: from his Catholic upbringing on the South Side of Chicago, to his hard-fought entry into the world of stand-up comedy, to his atheistic leanings as he moved further along in his comedic career, to his now strong belief that God is not only real but that God has a definite plan for his life—and that this plan for him just might include, ironically, both faith and humour! With chapters such as “Celibacy in the City” and “Live from New York, It’s . . . a Jesuit”, Martin continually demonstrates not only the essential role humour has played in developing his own spiritual life, but the important role it can—and should—play in developing ours as well.
