HASH(0xa786fc30) out of 5 stars A Dubious Disciple Book Review Aug. 22 2011
By Dubious Disciple - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is David's first collection of cartoons, 101 of them, and I hope many more follow. Cartoons just work! They help us laugh at ourselves, and then they help us think outside the box. In a cartoon, serious topics can hide behind lighthearted drawings.

And David's work is funny. LOL funny. As the Naked Pastor, he bares his soul (not his body, sorry) about problems in the Church ... often, problems that result from rigid rules or non-acceptance or unfounded assumptions about the nature of God. Most are annotated with a bit of the thought process that went into their creation.

This book is in no way disrespectful to the Church. David is an insider; he has completed masters in Theological Studies and in Ministry and Religion, and has been pastor of several churches over 25 years. That's plenty of time for cartoonistic opinions to form, right? David admits that for this book he has purposefully chosen favorites among his less controversial drawings; rants against church vision and mission statements, and cartoons addressing the gay issue, have been omitted, so we may be drinking "Hayward light" at this time. Next time, David, lay it on us straight. We can take it.

I sat with some friends one night and went over this books until laughter created tears. It's a look at church life without the fig leaves.

HASH(0xa816312c) out of 5 stars Thought provoking and fun too!! July 30 2011

I am a long time visiter to David Hayward's website, [...], and have finally gotten around to ordering his new book. I just have to say that I absolutely loved it and can't wait for whatever else he'll eventually publish. His work is genuine and heartfelt with quite a bit of humor thrown in as well, something the world definitely needs. There is no way I can recommend his work, either this or from his website, enough.

HASH(0xa87514d4) out of 5 stars Effective Communication July 16 2011
By David L. Waters Sr. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All pastors, Naked or Not, want to Communicate. David Hayward is an effective communicator through his Cartoon drawings concerning many of the things people experience when involved with a Christian church. Get it, ingest it, share it. You'll be glad you did.
HASH(0xa7e47720) out of 5 stars Great read - too short!! :) March 3 2012

I love the little cartoons in this book. I am also a fan of his web site.

If I have any complaints about the book, it's that he left out so much of his cartoons, and especially that he admits to avoiding certain topics that he has written cartoons for: church vision, money, and the gay issue.
The only other issue is the layout of a few two- and three-panel cartoons: becaues the book is oriented vertically and the two- & three- panel cartoons were published horizontally, they had to be reduced in size that are periously small for these old eyes of mine.

Having said that, what is in the book is wonderful, frustrating, & funny. And just when you find yourself pointing at others' bad church habits, the next panel stings you with something you yourself are guilty of.

Highly recommended for anyone honest about the foibles of the church and its utterly human side.
