The Preacher Joke Book
august house, 1989 - Humor - 109 pages
This surprisingly reverent collection of religious humor pokes less at the message than at the messenger. Gentle enough to give your preacher, clean enough to use in the pulpit, this volume is nonetheless sharp enough to drive home its point that the clergyman does well to serve rather than be served. Gathered by Loyal Jones, whose scholarship has concentrated on both religion and humor, this collection cuts across denominational and ideological lines to focus on the foibles of the pastor and the human side of serving God. St. Peter jokes, mock sermons, church bulletin misprints, and age-old denominational rivalries--all are here, delightfully illustrated in pen and ink by Wendell Hall.

This book redefines shit jokes as something Religion has an impact towards. Please spend more time loving your "lord" and less time compiling the worlds most crappy jokes.
