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.

With remarkable depth and clarity Paulson explores the question: Where do we find a gracious God? Luther's answer was: not in the law! Where then? Only in the publicly executed and hated God, Jesus Christ, hidden in the cross.
