A History of Religious Satire From the Hebrew Prophets to Stephen Colbert

Book - 2015
Rate this:
Lindvall chronicles the evolution of religious satire, from the biblical wit and humor of the Hebrew prophets through the Roman Era and the Middle Ages all the way up to the present. He explains that there is a method to the madness of these mockers: true satire, he argues, is at its heart moral outrage expressed in laughter, but there are remarkable differences in how these religious satirists express their outrage.
