Publisher's Summary

What do we believe? And in God's name why? Lewis Black has the answers. Or at least his answers. He survived Hebrew school and a bar mitzvah (barely), was a 60's 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 70's (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.

great read

Ok, he is not the traditional religious writer, but he usually makes sense. I had the feeling he truely tried to respect the religious opinions of others, but was not drawn into their madness. Who would have thought that this man, this potty mouth man, could so articulate such a complex subject and still make me laugh. Well worth the time and money for this book.

It was like being at a Louis Black concert!

Louis Black is one of my favorite comedians and this is my first comedy novel. It was just like watching a live show as he narrated the stories. There were laughs and smiles throughout! There is a part where he narrates a radio show that he did a few years ago, that kind of dragged, but it was only one chapter. Louis makes us look realistically at the human condition, and especially the humor in religion. I love his perspective! This is not a book for the organized religious however, only the open minded :)
