Comedian Lewis Black & Bob Schieffer at The Aspen Ideas Festival 2009

Aspen Ideas Festival, 2009.

In Me of Little Faith, Lewis Black offers a ferociously funny exploration of how the rules and constraints of faith and religion have affected his life and the lives of us all. “Quite simply,” says Black, “this is a book about my relationship to religion and how I arrived at whatever vague sense of religion I have. It’s how I stumbled along my spiritual path and what I bumped into along the way.” And he has bumped into plenty. Black describes his hilarious experiences with rabbis, Mormons, gurus, televangelists, psychics, and even the joy of a perfect round of golf, and uses them as a jumping-off point to expound upon what we believe and why-in the language of a shock jock with the heart of an iconoclast.
