It's always disheartening when the first two books in a series start off so brilliantly, and then it all seems to go downhill.

This book got a couple of laughs from me, but only a couple. Nothing like the first two Sacred Diaries where I laughed so hard that tears came down my cheeks. In fact the only memory I have of laughing this time was near the beginning when Leonard rang Adrian from a phone box up the street.

My favourite people this time by far were Leonard, Angels and Anne.... I kept find

This book follows covers a tour which Adrian makes with his fictional wife Anne, and their son Gerald (now an an ordained minister). Amongst others. It's a local speaking tour in which Adrian - supposedly - writes his diary daily. There are some very amusing moments although we all thought it wasn't as funny as the previous books in the series. On the other hand, there are some very thought-provoking discussions that occur, some of which point out - gently - flaws in some modern evangelical fund ...more

OH NO! This book is out of print, which makes it both difficult to find and expensive to buy. DRAT!

BUT!!! I found it on Amazon because I think it may be in print again. Anyway, in true fashion, this is another HILARIOUS wonderful read, and thank God for Gerald. There were not as many laugh out loud (literally) moments in this book, but it was still beyond funny as the reader follows Adrian and co. on his speaking tour. Has Leonard Thynn found love? Anne also has several chances to shine, which a

How does Adrian unearth the ridiculousness of "christianize" without leading his reader to lose faith in the "Body of Christ." His love for the church is keen and yet his sarcasm is rampant! Love this author.

It's OK, and I can't add much more. Not as funny as the original diaries, and the questions and answers concerning faith and the Bible have not really developed over the years. A bit same-old. Or am I just harder to please?

A funny Christian book, but sometimes I didn't got the jokes which probably is because I'm Swedish and don't have the English language nor the the culture as my native.
