A delightful mix of off the wall British humour and sharp reality interspersed with inspiration to touch the heartand the funny bone As one of the characters states Adrian downplays his strengths and lays out his weaknesses to help others my own wordingOne of my favourite passages When Adrian desires a support group for his speaking ministry his wife says of him You get very cross indeed when anyone says anything remotely critical When Adrian denies this his son writes him a short bit of verse Freely I confess my sins For God has poured His love in; But when another lists my faults I want to smash his face in The kind of humour and pick me up honesty that is refreshing I can't remember how many times I've read these books but Plass still makes me laugh just as hard as ever And to have grown up in the church as a twentysomething I think I also need the books now MORE than ever We meet the characters from the first book sarcastic son Gerald bewildred and wonderful wife Anne unbelievably crazy friend Leonard very religious Doreen Cookand of course the lost bloited egotistic big hearted trying to do right but failing on the way Christian speaker that is Adrian Plass I could fill this review with a tremendous amount of spoilers of the funny but I'm not I'm gonna leave the reading and laughing to you my friend However I will tell you this This is not just a laugh fest This seuel contains a bit long passages where depth in characters and life are explored in profound ways than before Also that a precursor of what's to come in the Plass world The book is what I go to when I feel the church is not acting the way i think it should or when people are stupid or when I feel insecure about everything I believe in This little book contains so much heart through humour it's amazingDon't believe me? Believe this I have three copies of this book One English two Swedish Why you ask? I'll tell you why I try to convince all my friends to read these books all the time If someone is finally worn down by my nagging and since too much nostalgia is connected to my original copy I've simply bought two loaners so as many people as possible get to read this book If this makes me a part of the Adrian Plass canon I don't mind It's still not worse than Leonard Thynn borowing that cat Why did he borrow that cat? I can't remember Just kidding i can SO remember Read it read it read it The first book in a long time that made me sit in the sofa next to my wife giggling to myself The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass Christian Speaker aged 45 34 – Adrian PlassThe original bestselling Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass Aged 37 ½ is a brilliant take on ordinary church members who wish their spiritual life was a little evangelical dramatic and gently pokes humour at evangelical hang ups whilst still very much loving the tribe he’s writing from This volume continues the story – but now the fictionalised Adrian Plass is on a speaking tour Whenever I’m feeling a little blue or out of sorts I reach for Adrian Plass He should be given out by vicars on prescription His humour is a little dated now this book was written a while ago but its heart is good and there’s much wisdom behind the humour This time I was struck by the temptation to fame and what a contradiction it is for Christians If you’ve never read Plass before start with the Sacred Diary Aged 375 otherwise get this and enjoy This was a nice light and funny read about Adrian as a public speaker He fills us in with all the church characters including his son Gerald and wife Ann showing that the church is a group of people with all the usual faults and weaknesses but on the whole a loving and supportive bunch of people Adrian and his family travel abroad to Australia in this book for him to do some speaking and we have a description of his time there Recommended No one makes me laugh and cry and feel like everything will be ok like Adrian Plass Highly recommend for anyone who struggles with faith who sees the faults in the church or who needs a good laugh and some solid encouragement Was honestly afraid this book wouldn't hold up against the original but is at least as good as the first Diaries Despite making fun of Christianity's many flaws and traditions it keeps the core the love care mercy and beauty of our faith Very sincere Maybe to much on a few occasions And hilarious Which Adrian manages to combine in one excellent story More hilarious satire from Adrian Plass While it didn't uite reach the dizzying heights of the first book it was brilliant Highly recommended Entertainingly meaningful 4 Very funny Adrian Plass exposes the inconsistencies that haunt even sincere Christians
