Most of us are going through the motions when it comes to faith, believing we've found all the relevant answers to life's questions. When we make certainty and correct belief the end goal of faith, we miss out on the chance to know God more deeply. Our questions and doubts, push us closer to a God we can actually believe in--rather than further from a God we think we can contain.

What is the relevance of comedy for the global crises of late-modernity and the theological critique thereof? This book develops recent philosophical, anthropological, and psychoanalytical studies of humor to develop a theology of comedy. It argues that comedy not only participates in the divine, but that it should inform our liturgical, sacramental, and ecclesial life if we are to respond to the postmodern age in which having fun is an ideological imperative of market forces.
