The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass: Adrian Plass and the Church Weekend

The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass: Adrian Plass and the Church Weekend

Adrian has been trying to keep a low profile at church but his son Gerald is now an Anglican vicar and the two churches are getting together for a joint weekend away. Now Adrian’s been volunteered to run it…

From the confusion of arrival when Anne is allocated to the top bunk with a schizophrenic recovery group, and Adrian is in a low-ceilinged ‘pod’ at the top of the tower, to the hugs and tears of departure, this is typical Plass, humorous and heartwarming in equal measure. Adrian has a simple conversation about birdlife that ends with him being accused of harassment, Leonard Thynn and his wife turn up just in time to leave again after falling out with the SatNav lady, and Gerald’s wit just keeps getting the better of him.

There are as many questions as answers, of course. Will poor Sally, the unwilling nomad of the community, ever find a proper bed to sleep in? What exactly is it about Adrian’s twinkle that Minnie Stamp ‘lovey-doves’ so very much? And how do you cope when your daughter-in-law shares a secret you simply cannot, must not tell?

Once again, Adrian Plass gets us laughing just long enough for the truth to slip in by the back door, and for all the mishaps, this new instalment of the Sacred Diary series once again shows just how good God is at caring for this mixed bag of people we call the church.

Reviews

I enjoyed it from the very first to the very last page... He writes with such warmth and good humour... I loved this story and its characters so much. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Reflections Magazine
The book is equal parts heart-warming as humorous and shows God's love for the mixed-bag of people in a church.
