Overview

What is Holy Humor? It is a book for those who enjoy a good laugh, and for those who enjoy retelling good jokes and stories. It's a book that shows religion, church, preaching and even the clergy can be fun and have a funny side, too.

In Holy Humor, the jokes, sayings and thoughts have a religious touch. The basis for almost all humor is fact, and many of the stories in this volume are funny incidents that really happened. The humor here, though, is light and fun. It isn’t heavy-handed and preaching, nor is it crude and repulsive.

The stories in Holy Humor can be enjoyed by anyone, told by anyone, to anyone without embarrassment. The jokes are ageless, and don’t require a deep knowledge of theology or the tenets of any denomination. All the reader needs to enjoy this book is a sense of humor, and the knowledge that jokes don't have to be offensive to be funny.
