A Time to Laugh

Full Product Description

Humour has a place in religion and religion itself is impoverished when it fails to reveal and develop this aspect of itself. Humour is a part of the tough tissue of religion that binds our hearts together in love, worship, or fellowship/community. Often, however, humour is negatively affected by religion, or religious people are allergic to humour. Capps tries in this book to show the ways in which humour can be recovered for religion. He argues that religion is diminished when it fails to understand and embrace its own historical connection - much of it dating to biblical days - to humour itself. His chapters deal with topics ranging from humour as an expression of intimacy to humour as the maintenance of the soul.
