Thor Ramsey (known as the Jon Stewart of the theological world)
defends the essentials of the Christian faith in this volume of
comedy for the thinking person. Armed with only a laptop and a
rapier wit, he defends the inspiration of the Bible ("all Scripture
is inspired by God"--in other words, when you tell someone off,
quote the Bible), the doctrine of total depravity (calling someone
out for their sins is a tricky business, especially if you don't
know how to operate a bullhorn), and the supremacy of Christ (or
why Thor's God is bigger than your god), along with a host of other
essential doctrines of the Christian faith.
Packed with funny stories and hard-hitting truths, this comprehensive collection of biblical insights and personal anecdotes will surprise readers, destroy their misconceptions, and leave them wanting more. For readers looking alternatives to the conversation of traditional faith, or those who have a taste for fearless (and hilarious) honesty, A Comedian's Guide to Theology will permanently change how we all look at Christianity--or at least offer a good-hearted shove out of the box (or back in the box, if that's where you need to be).
Thor Ramsey's smart, sometimes loud, and often opinionated brand of comedy has made him an audience favorite nationwide. Ramsey has performed on television, at festivals, in comedy clubs, for corporate and special events with comedians such as Drew Carey, Kathleen Madigan, Mitch Headberg, and Dane Cook. Ramsey received a degree in English literature and Hellenistic Greek from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.
