I LOVED IT!!!!!!!! Oct 28, 2003
Adrian Plass' Sacred Diaries are hilarious! I was concerned that the sequel would not be as good as the first, but my concerns were soon put to rest as I began to read the first few pages. I became very attached to all of the characters in the first book and was grateful to find them all there. Plass is a comical genius in my opinion. These books are laughter therapy for any Christian.
ANOTHER HONEST BLAST AT RELIGION Nov 16, 2000
Plass has done it again! He takes the ordinary things we religious people do and puts them under the microscope of reality. As we see ourselves as we really are we have to laugh, cry and realize that Jesus really is nice and he likes us IN SPITE OF THE SILLY THINGS WE DO. This diary shows us a more mature, thoughtful diary writer than before. All the family and friends are there, and I had a definite feeling that my knowledge of them was growing deeper.
Don't be afraid to read this if you are a Christian. It doesn't make fun of Jesus, but of us. This is something that we are certainly deserving of, and Plass delivers a healthy dose of humourous-medicine that challenges our status quo and invites us to run giggling into the arms of the One who loves us so much He'd rather die than live without us!
Excellent! Aug 29, 1999
This was the third book by Adrian Plass I read and it's just as good, probably better than the others. The humour isn't quite as silly and it's much deeper. A wonderful, heartwarming book.
