    In Between Heaven and Mirth, James Martin, SJ, assures us that God wants us to experience joy, to cultivate a sense of holy humor, and to laugh at life’s absurdities—not to mention our own humanity. Father Martin invites believers to rediscover the importance of humor and laughter in our daily lives and to embrace an essential truth: faith leads to joy.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Between Heaven and Mirth to be better than the print version?

    James Martin SJ provides a thoughtful analysis of why humor appears to be missing from the Bible, how to find it by adjusting your cultural perspective and the importance of mirth in religion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Between Heaven and Mirth?

    How animals in sack cloth are a hilarious image in the story of Jonah.


    What does James Martin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It is always nice to hear the author's voice, particularly when listening to a joke where timing is crucial.
