    Adrian Plass in now in demand after his account of "serious spiritual experiences" in The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass (aged 37 3/4). As Adrian gathers regularly with his support group, we meet old friends like his long-suffering wife Anne, their son Gerald, loony and lovable Leonard Thynn, and Doreen Cook, who are as religious as ever.

    Adriel says: "A funny look at the church"
    "A funny look at the church"
    Overall

    Adrian Plass has a wonderful way of looking at the way Christians behave, and the gap between what they really are and what they appear to be in public. It's full of British humour (he warns that Americans do not understand irony). It's a wonderfully encouraging book and life giving book. WAARNING: Not for anyone who takes the church too seriously.

  • The Adventure of English: The Biography of a Language

    This is the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. The Adventure of English is not only an enthralling story of power, religion, and trade, but also the story of people, and how their lives continue to change the extraordinary language that is English.

    Amazon Customer says: "Many Of Course monments"
    "Perfect for Audio"
    Overall

    This is a great book to listen to. It's good to be able to listen to how the words actually sound, rather than trying to imagine what they would sound like when read off a page.

    Enjoyed the book tremendously and highly recommend it.

    "Supprised"
    Overall

    I had expected to get Nouwen reading his book: Instead it was a series of talks given at a retreat. It was a good listen, however I feel this should have been made more clear in the description of the product.

    Nouwen speaks well, and shars a large number of insights.

    John Cleese's performance brings The Screwtape Letters to life, conveying all the irony, comedy, and terror of this modern spiritual masterpiece.

    Linda says: "The Screwtape Letters"
    "Really funny"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. Screwtape gives a fresh point of view of the christians jouney to heaven with wit and sophistication. None of the simplistic formulations such as 'being saved by the blood' that we sometimes hear.
