The 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 more 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, otherwise get this and enjoy.
I had been concerned that this sequel, published in 1997, would prove a disappointment, but was delighted to be proved wrong. I smiled in many places, and chuckled few times, and found myself thinking about the contents at odd times long after I had finished.
Re-reading 15 years later, I enjoyed it afresh, and yes, despite knowing most of the punchlines and the general outcome of the stories, I still found myself laughing out loud more than once.
Highly recommended, although it makes the most sense to read this after, at least, the first Sacred Diary book.
