Item description for The Book of Catholic Jokes by Tom Sheridan & Gregory Sakowicz...

Countless pages of hilarious jokes--confirmed funny Religion is far too important to be taken seriously all the time-so says author Tom Sheridan, who in The Book of Catholic Jokes invites readers to laugh along with him and remember that faith can be-and should be-fun. Sheridan begins by discussing the importance of laughter and the relationship of humor to religion before launching into hilarious jokes. After all, Jesus said, "Unless you become like children, you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven."

Publishers Description
The ability to laugh, especially the ability to laugh at ourselves, is a uniquely human characteristic. One of the greatest sources of humor can be religion, for religion offers us an opportunity to laugh at ourselves at our most serious. And Jesus taught us that we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously. "Unless you become like little children," he said, "you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven." Author Tom Sheridan begins by discussing the importance of laughter and the relationship of humor to religion before launching into the hilarious jokes.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Catholic Jokes?

Maybe confirmed funny but needs some more CCD.  May 19, 2010
I did not find the stories and jokes to be as funny or as Catholic as I had hoped. Many are re-treds of some rather common jokes with many reworked from Protestant jokes. Bottom like, if you are looking for Catholic humor, don't look here.
Great for Church  May 1, 2009
I am a lector in our church. Often at the end of mass I am called on to tell a joke--clean,of course--so the members can leave in a happy mood--which I think is a great idea. So once every two weeks I select a joke from the Catholic Joke Book.
The members love the jokes and so does the priest. It is great to see so many people leaving in a happy mood
Thanks for the book. S. Stremmel
Top 10 Lists, Puns, and More  Nov 7, 2008
Deacon Tom Sheridan does a little setting up in the introduction to his new book. One might say a pastor, a deacon, and a Passionist priest.... No joke, in the foreword, Father Gregory Sakowicz, a Chicago pastor, writes, "Religion offers us an opportunity to laugh at ourselves at our most serious, and Jesus taught us that we shouldn't take ourselves all that seriously." In his introduction, Sheridan writes that humor "acknowledges the presence of a God who has touched humanity." And in the last chapter, Did Jesus Laugh, he shares the thoughts of bible scholar Father Donald Senior on humor in scripture.

That said, it's on to more than 70 pages of jokes from Top 10 lists to puns. The top 10 reasons God created Eve starts with concern that Adam would get lost because he wouldn't ask for directions. "A dead ringer" comes up in a pun-filled tale of efforts to find a new bell-ringer after Notre Dame's Quasimodo died. And groupings like the following open a slew of stories that take place at locations such as bars and the pearly gates: a Brit, a Frenchman and a Russian...The chief rabbi and the Pope... Karl Rahner, Hans Kung and Pope Benedict XVI...Saint Dominic, Francis of Assisi and Ignatius of Loyola...a teacher, a garbage collector and a lawyer. I especially like the response from two priests asked how many novenas it would take to earn a Mercedes Benz. The Franciscan asks what's a Mercedes Benz and the Jesuit asks what's a novena. Kid stories feature Little Johnny and Little Susie, and ethnic tales star Paddy, Muldoon, and Gallagher. Sheridan bows to the Church's spirit of ecumenism with an atheist joke as well as one about crossing a Jehovah's Witness with a Unitarian. The outcome: Someone who goes around knocking on doors for no apparent reason.
