The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass on Tour

I've read The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass on Tour (aged far too much to put on the cover of a book) at least three times, and it gets funnier and more poignant every time. Though the title character shares the author's name, it is a book of fiction. Adrian Plass gently pokes fun at various aspects of Christian living, but while I laugh I notice the spiritual truths he is pointing out.

It is the fifth book in a series. The first four are:
The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass, aged 37 3/4
The Theatrical Tapes of Leonard Thynn
The Horizontal Epistles of Andromeda Veal
The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass, Christian Speaker, aged 45 3/4

  1. I think all of Adrian Plass's books are worth reading several times; he packs so much into them.

    The book I find funniest is, "The Theatrical Tapes of Leonard Thynn". It was obvious what was coming -- those ducks -- but still made me laugh so much that I woke my family who were all asleep upstairs.

    The book I found to be most inspiring is, "A Smile on the Face of God". Sadly I lent it to someone who never returned it, and I can't remember who. I shall have to see if I can buy it second hand, it's out of print now, and I think it would do me good to read it again ... soon.
