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 ’60s 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 ’70s (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.

    " The first three quarters of this book were great, the last part was tough to read... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ty | 2/5/2014

    " A quick read and very funny. Lewis Black brings his cutting wit to the issues of religion in modern society. As Black says, anyone who ardently believes in any religion will be quite offended. The open minded will find much to laugh at. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Walter Weary | 1/30/2014

    " Simple. Funny, but not nearly so good as Lewis live. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Felix Evans | 1/28/2014

    " ^.^ Period. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thirstyicon | 1/28/2014

    " If you want to read this book, don't. Get the audio version. While I did laugh out loud a couple times, I was not overly impressed or engaged with this book. I like Lewis Black, but his "voice" doesn't come through in his writing, all the time. Had I thought about it, I would have gotten the audio download and just listened to this. My guess is, I would have given that 3 stars. Oh well, lesson learned... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara Langenberg | 1/25/2014

    " Laugh out loud funny. Not suitable for some audiences, though. :-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angel | 1/16/2014

    " If you like Lewis Black, whether from his stand-up comedy or from his work at The Daily Show, then you will probably like this book. I did not rate it higher because it does slow a bit at the end. However, it is worth reading. Black combines humor with memoir and commentary to reflect on his relationship with religion. More importantly, he reminds us of the importance of humor, especially when it comes to religion. The deity, whatever form it takes, must have a sense of humor, so we should have some sense of humor as well when it comes to religion. The early part of the book is the best part. Along the way, we get a look at politics, G.W. Bush, Muslims, Christians, and even Mormons; Black pretty much covers a lot of territory in this book. I did like it overall, and I think a good number of people should read it. Maybe it would help them be less uptight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 1/15/2014

    " via NYPL - some funny bits, but a mixed bag at best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 9/4/2013

    " Lewis Black cracks me up. So does organized religion. This book was a lot of fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrianne | 7/5/2013

    " This is one of those books that makes you laugh and examine the way you look at your own faith. And if you're struggling to understand your own, it reminds you to laugh about it. Definitely a good book by one of my favorite comedians, writers, and commentators on life! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam Sink | 3/21/2013

    " Would have been better without the play at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 2/26/2013

    " Looking forward to using my borders rewards card at walden books to pick this up some time soon. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Just Ducky | 2/24/2013

    " Tried to read it... but couldn't get into it... I really like his stand-up, but he just doesn't seem to translate well into written words... Maybe if I got an audio book of it - with him reading it???... :-/ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 10/24/2012

    " Lewis Black takes no prisoners. Here are his musings on religions of the world... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jan Gagnon | 10/3/2012

    " Save your money, this was a complete waste of time. Lewis Black is a comedian that needs to be heard in person. While he does write like he speaks and a lot of the book referred to his life, it just had nothing to offer to keep the reader interested. Sorry... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 8/29/2012

    " Lewis Black's voice comes through on every page. If you like him and are "meh" on religion, you'll enjoy this book. Funny until the weird play at the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Simon | 8/23/2012

    " I think it is the standard agnostic's view of religion. He provides his questions and insights into religion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 3/13/2012

    " what can I say, I'm a sucker for intelligent humour. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 2/8/2012

    " Black certainly covers the folly of faith within these pages. Surprisingly, for a book that exposes the faults and vices of religion, there is an undercurrent of spirituality and belief. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evelyn | 9/30/2011

    " so far, I love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deedles4178 | 6/13/2011

    " hilarious, real, honest and biting look at the catholic religion and any religion for that matter. i'm a huge fan of Lewis Black and his biting sarcastic wit. Be prepared to be a little shocked and if you are a hardcore catholic...Dont even think about reading this. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Doug | 5/15/2011

    " Boring. Pointless.

    Black mocks people who have faith in religion then praises himself for discovering that astrology and Psychics are true and useful in guiding his life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Braxton | 5/2/2011

    " a well written sarcastic look at religion. A lot of negative reviews say it isn't that funny, but I don't think it was meant to be a laugh a minute type of book, although it does have a lot of laughs. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melki | 5/2/2011

    " I always liked watching him sputter and fume on "The Daily Show,"
    but somehow he does not translate well into print. I'll skip his
    next effort. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 3/20/2011

    " Lewis Black's voice comes through on every page. If you like him and are "meh" on religion, you'll enjoy this book. Funny until the weird play at the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 3/3/2011

    " See my review of Nothing's Sacred. It's pretty much the same with this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 2/27/2011

    " Strictly for fans of the comedian (among whom I count myself) as he riffs on various religious issues. It's hit or miss. For obvious reasons he punts on Islam, but his observations on his own Jewish background, various encounters with Christianity, and related issues are engaging and often funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 H.s. | 2/2/2011

    " what can I say, I'm a sucker for intelligent humour. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 De-Ann | 1/21/2011

    " Lewis Black is ALWAYS good for a laugh or two...this is no exception "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 12/28/2010

    " Passed the time in the car. Not as funny as some of his other stuff. But oddly closer to my own view of religion and spirituality than most "religious" texts. Worth reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 12/14/2010

    " Had some humor, but having seen Lewis Black live before, I was expecting more humor.
    Still, with all the craziness of the holidays, it was a nice easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 12/13/2010

    " Some funny moments, but Black's humor doesn't work as well without seeing his anxious outrage. "
