Book Description

15 Aug 2011
10 Second Sermons is a little book that packs a big punch. Award-winning comedian Milton Jones unleashes a rapid-fire string of brilliant one-liners about life, the universe, God, Jesus, the Church and being a Christian in turn hilarious, surreal, shocking and profound, but all designed to make us think about faith from a completely different perspective. The book is illustrated with Milton s own cartoons. It will appeal to fans of Dave Walker and Adrian Plass, although Milton Jones voice is refreshingly unique. Not for the easily offended! Meanwhile, the sequel 'EVEN MORE CONCISE TEN SECOND SERMONS' has also arrived and is available in all good bookstores.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, funny book 4 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a absolute gem, it is hilarious and very perceptive. Milton Jones' passion for faith combined with his witty humour makes this an ideal book for teenagers upwards. You can dip into it for some light relief, but you won't want to put it down.
Milton's one-liners are just as amusing as on TV :)

My husband is a Church minister who asked me to get this booklet for him and after looking through it has managed to use some of the items for small services within hospitals or at peoples homes - a handy little booklet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet....! 9 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved the sermons written with Milton Jones' dry wit. Could almost use it as a short sermon a day type of book although I read through them in no time at all.

Something worth having to dip into when needing uplifting.
Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars small but perfectly formed 31 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
wickedly insightful, thought provoking and very, very funny.

I'm looking forward to hearing these creep into sermons across the land, Milton is in danger of being quoted as often as the gospels on a Sunday morning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Milton Jones Genius 4 Dec 2011
By Andy P
Format:Paperback
Milton Jones is a master of the one liner, his jokes mabe old, so bad that they are good. If he leaves you crying with laughter when you hear his stand up routines then you will not be disapointed with this small book of wonderfull humorous wisdom

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 17 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The sermons may only be ten seconds long, but they are at the same time hilarious and very thought-provoking. One friend I gave the book to has been inspired to compose his own.

I've often wonder why sermons need to be so long. My ideal is a short sermon between 8 to 10 minutes maximum. So, when I saw Milton Jones' book advertised for a measly sum, I thought great, it will be a good guide to short one-liners for use in sermons.

However, it is more than a one-liner listing. It contains themes and topics, albeit brief on which to reflect and to use as the basis or topic for a short sermon. I have shared my copy among several Clergy and they all seemed to think that I might prove useful in their ministry.

Nothing here is mind blowing or will move mountains, but it is erudite, funny and thought provoking, which is presumably the authors intention.

Like the second volume, this abounds with pearls of wisdom on every page. Very readable, challenging, thought provoking and very, very funny with it. Thanks Milton!

I love Milton Jones, I saw him live and laughed non stop for hours. Realised that none of his jokes were smutty or rude. This book shows why - he is a devout Christian. Read more

It arrived as expected and in good time - short easy read and I passed it onto our Rector - not sure he'll be giving 10 second sermons though!
