Kate Bruce - Why does theology need humour?
February 04, 2019 Philip Plyming

What has comedy got to do with theology? What does the Bible have to say about laughter? What power does comedy have to convey truth about God and his world? Can God minister to us through humour? And how can comedy give us hope?

Kate Bruce was formerly Deputy Warden at Cranmer Hall, and is now an RAF chaplain. She is the author of Igniting the Heart: Preaching and Imagination (SCM Press).
