The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass, Christian Speaker, age 45 (by Adrian Plass)

This is the sequel to the 'Sacred Diary trilogy' by the brilliant modern British Christian writer Adrian Plass.

Once more the author shows his powers of observation and brilliant humour as he pokes gentle fun at the evangelical church, and caricatures of its members. This works because he also makes fun of himself and his (probably exaggerated) failings.

I thought this book more thought-provoking than the earlier 'diary', but with some very funny moments nonetheless. It's only two years since I first read this, so it wasn't quite as hilarious as the first time, but still well worth reading.  It ties up a lot of loose ends from the earlier books.
