“Between Heaven and Mirth will make any reader smile...Father Martin reminds us that happiness is the good God’s own goal for us.” —Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York
From one of America’s most beloved spiritual leaders and the New York Times bestselling author, Father James Martin, SJ, comes a revolutionary look at how you can change your life and save your spirit through joy, humor, and laughter. Martin shares how you can strike a healthy balance between spirituality and daily life and live as a joyful believer. In Between Heaven and Mirth, he uses scriptural passages, the lives of the saints, the spiritual teachings of other traditions, and his own personal reflections to show us why joy is the inevitable result of faith, because a healthy spirituality and a healthy sense of humor go hand-in-hand with God's great plan for humankind.
