"Jake Martin is very frank in discussing the challenges of being a comedian and the challenges of the priesthood, but he also shows the joy that comes from both. If you’ve never thought of comedy as anything other than comedy, this book will make you see the spirituality behind it. A great read."
-- Ginny Kubitz Moyer, Random Acts of Momness
"What’s So Funny about Faith? is a very enjoyable read, especially for those of us who might not be willing to admit just how much of our identity we gained through movies and television. It is a refreshing apologia for popular entertainment – and is itself both encouraging and entertaining."
-- Cole Mateson, Transpositions
"This book is an all around winner for the life of a Christian teen. The voice in which it is written, the issues raised, and the penetration of the inner life of a teen, possess startling accuracy. While it is written by an adult, the urgency of having the courage to be your authentic self is the paramount issue for teens.”
