From the hilariously mad-as-hell Daily Show
regular and New York Times–bestselling author comes a
ferociously funny exploration of religion and
What do we believe? And in God’s name
Lewis Black has the answers. Or at least
his answers. He survived Hebrew school and a bar
mitzvah (barely), was a sixties college student who saw the
parallels between religious rapture and drug-induced visions
(even if none of his friends did), explored the
self-actualization movement of the seventies (and the
self-indulgence it engendered), and turned a cynical eye
toward politicians who don the cloak of religious rectitude
to cover up their own hypocrisy.
What he learned
about the inconsistencies and peculiarities of religion
infuriated Black, and in Me of Little Faith they get
his full comic attention. In a series of comedic inquiries,
Black explores how the rules and constraints of religion
have affected his life and the lives of us all. Hilarious
experiences with rabbis, Mormons, gurus, psychics, and even
the joy of a perfect round of golf give Black the chance to
expound upon what we believe and why—in the language of a
shock jock and with the heart of an iconoclast.
