A humorous take on the various aspects of Christian life, whilst dropping in some very true and serious points.

Adrian Plass, “Bacon Sandwiches and Salvation: An A-Z of the Christian Life” (London: Authentic, 2008).

Adam = first example of someone who ruined his life by taking banned substances that had been growing in his garden. It was his bird's idea, and she got nicked as well. (p7)
Alpha = outreach system that has brought thousands to faith, but has left in its wake a small, deeply confused group of people who have mistakenly asked Nicky Gumbel into heir lives. (p8)

This book is hilarious. I love British humour and since the author is a retired British magistrate guess what, the humour is British.

Fantastic. Very funny. Comfortable with the many weakneses of Christians! Hilarious in poking fun at church foolishness. Turns dry occasionally in presenting a challenge to the norm. Adrian Plass paints us pretty accurately - he's good for my soul.

A dictionary of Christianese, with Adrian Plass's unique style of humour, blending the ridiculous with some very thought-provoking anecdotes and comments. Well worth reading - just so long as you're not easily offended by someone poking gentle humour at the church.
