Christian comedian Tim Hawkins has been making the social media rounds for some time now. His classic chart of worship signals is hilarious internet fodder. He is also a homeschool dad so I see things from him pop up on pages I follow from time to time. He has a new book out titled Diary of a Jackwagon. This is his "journal" of funny observations, and I received a copy to review from BookLook Bloggers.
Beyond snippets of his songs and the infamous chart, I wasn't super familiar with his work, and so I wasn't sure what to expect. Tim Hawkins is definitely funny. I had many laugh out loud moments as I read his thought s on McDonald's, shoes, and Christian curse words. His humor was fairly clean although he does tend to toe the line a bit. Some of his jokes made me feel a bit uptight (something he predicted and of course had a joke about in the book). It is a fine line for Christians, we should be able to laugh at ourselves (and consequently one another), but I think we should be careful not to take away from our reverence for God or the respectful tone our worship should have.
However, this book is funny. I laughed more than I cringed. I would recommend it well above most of the "comedy" available to stream. There were no actual cusswords used in the writing of this book.
I received a free copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinion.
