Letters


It is commonly believed that humor has no place in religion. But answers to “Letters to the Editor” demonstrate that a toe-hold can be created not only for humor, but also for various literary features that generate interest.In turns, cool, witty, uncompromising, provoking, tough, forthright, humorous, yet educative – the answers have demonstrated that religious discussions need not be high and dry boorish.


While tender, emotional, and Eastern minds feel offended by some answers, many broad-minded readers have repeatedly suggested their publication in book form. Rather than feeling offended, the reader might remember that this is a new genre of writing, a new experiment in religious literature, and that we live in a world which is increasingly in short supply of delight.
