I recommend this for anyone who has a sense of humour about religion- as Jesus does.
This isn't really a book for those outside the church; there are too many 'in' jokes and allusions, too much cynicism to make any sense to someone who thinks Christianity is a load of rubbish anyway. I'm not sure it would even be helpful to those who are absolutely certain of their theology and don't like to hear dissenting voices.
But for those who like to think outside the box, to see things in a slightly different light and who don't mind a sometimes irreverent sense of the ridiculous and a gentle poking fun at well-meaning people within the church, this comes highly recommended. But preferably read the earlier books first - the original Sacred Diary in particular.
Touring around the country speaking, they meet un-cooperative caretakers, PA operators who can't, over-optimistic meeting organisers (not exactly 500 people in a theatre, more like 8 in a front room), and lots of people who need Jesus.
Through anecdote and conversation, Adrian Plass addresses important truths but with a knack of rising above theological debate to show you the love of God working through flawed, unwilling servants in a fallen world, to heal and help ordinary people.
Anne sums it up, in her response to Barry theologically-correct-but-hopelessly-wrong Ingstone's objection to using the church simply to help people without preaching to them at the same time.
Barry, in meeting you, I have been brought face to face with a phenomenon that is completely new to me. I have never before known anyone who was so completely and utterly right, and at the same time so totally and unequivocally wrong. Everything you say about the Bible and its teaching is accurate and unarguable. Everything you say about real people and real life and the way God actually is in his dealings with sad, confused human beings was born in some other, distant, cold and unfriendly place, and should never have been allowed to live.Read more ›
