The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass Aged 37 3/4

Saturday, December 14th.

Feel led to keep a diary. A sort of spiritual log for the benefit of others in the future. Each new divine insight and experience will shine like a beacon in the darkness! Can't think of anything to put in today. Still, tomorrow's Sunday. Must be something on a Sunday, surely?

So begins this funny, simple hearted piece of Christian literature. You will meet Anne, Adrian’s long suffering wife. Gerald, his son, who has a strange sense of humor and a fondness for anagrams. From coping with the roguish Uncle Ralph to the overly devout Flushpools, follow Adrian’s diary through the ups and downs of his life as he seeks to be a Christian in the world.

Adrian Plass will have you weeping with laughter, cringing with pain at the crazy, ridiculous things that people do and worry about but would never admit to anyone, not even themselves.

This book is serious laugh-out-loud comedy. Shamefully the Jefferson County Libraries do not own a copy, but you are welcome to borrow mine!
