Reviews - What do customers think about Sacred Diary Of Adrian Plass Aged 37 3/4?
British humor, God's love - what a great combination Mar 10, 2007
A light-hearted look into a Christian's struggle to be of more service to God, even though he feels completely unprepared, ill-equipped and lacking in talents and traits that would be so useful in ministry. It's a great moment when he realizes that if God called him into service, God knew what he was doing, and it is God's problem that he has all these deficiencies, not his.
My wife and I both laughed out loud... Repeatedly. Jul 5, 2006
We both thouroughly enjoyed this book. Funny, without being sacreligious. Probably funnier to an active Christian as many of the jokes are 'insider' jokes that wouldn't be funny to a non-christian.
I'm planning to buy/read more of Mr. Plass' books based on this one.
Suprisingly Funny! Jan 14, 2003
This book is very easy to read. I finished it in two afternoons. I can't remember the last book I read that made me laugh so hard. This is really, really funny! Regardless of your denomination or doctrine, I think anyone would really enjoy this book.
This book got me addicted to Plass! Oct 15, 2002
Friends in the UK sent us this book a few years ago, and I can't thank them enough. Adrian Plass has now outranked Frank Peretti and Max Lucado as my favorite author of all time. He has an amazing ability to make the reader laugh out loud, and on occasion, even cry. I am an avid reader and no other writer has ever touched my soul the way that Plass does. Whenever I am having a particularly rough day, I read a few favorite parts of this book and I find the stress melting away.
Do yourself a favor and start building a library of his works. I am doing that now, and can honestly say that I have not been disappointed by anything I have read so far. If you live in the US, it can be hard to find Plass's books. But it is well worth the investment and the time.
Excellent, excellent book!
Roll on the floor, Cry your eyes out funny May 9, 2001
I've read this book about three or four times now and I can safely say that it is the absolute funniest piece of Church humour I've ever read.
Scratch that. This is THE funniest book I've ever read. The first time I read it, I was rolling on the floor and crying. My wife and I will still sometimes just pick it up and start reading bits from it to each other for a few minutes of hilarity.
I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Your enjoyment will be greatly increased if you've spent time attending an evangelical church. It also helps to know that the book was written by a Brit and includes a number of references to people and practices that may be lost on those not from the UK.
Buy this book. It may not change your life but it'll be sure to give you a much needed break from your read through Calvin's "Institutes".
