Product Description

Product Description

Adrian considers the pull of the spirit and of the flesh and how this often leads us to live compartmentalized lives. We allow God only into certain bits and suffer embarrassment when our compromised private lives and shiny public lives collide.

War of the Worlds is about spiritual warfare, maturity, prayer and the fear of true commitment. It's a book that battles to reunite the secret world of what we are, with the public world of what we appear to be, in an outrageous and seriously funny advance into the no-man's-land of genuine Christian engagement. Adrian brings the Bible alive with rather unexpected soap opera characters; he introduces us to a God who is much more playful than we thought and asks questions such as:

If doubt and insecurity are the elephants in the room, how do we deal with these huge creatures?
How have we allowed so many herds of sacred cows to grow so large? True authenticity demands a major cull.

Any book by Adrian Plass is a wonderful treat. Always thought-provoking, witty, full of wisdom and understanding - one of the greatest Christian writers of our generation. This is one of his which I could't put down until I'd finished it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical. And not a Martian in sight. 9 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Inspiring, warm and funny, so everything you'd expect from Adrian Plass. I read it in tandem with Adrian Plass and the Church Weekend, and the two work marvellously together to illuminate the Way forward for the thoughtful Christian. I'm already looking forward to reading it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and compelling 19 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This man has such an ability to disarm and to make me think. There are no complex concepts here, just great advice from a true pilgrim who wants us to know that he speaks from among the flock, not six feet above contradiction. His honesty, real-world approach and humour are disarming. I laughed and I cried.
