Bacon sandwiches and salvation

£3.99

Product description

Adrian works through the alphabet, combining one-line definitions with more thoughtful pieces - a laugh-out-loud book on Christians and Christian culture. What are the two most important things in the universe? Bacon sandwiches and salvation, according to Adrian Plass. In this book, he combines one-line definitions with more thoughtful pieces, producing a volume that will make you laugh, cry - and reflect. Despite the fact that someone once offered him five million pounds never to write another word for publication (one hilarious story recounted here) this is a glorious book. Vintage Plass. 'Doubt: more or less frequent visitor who should be allowed in when he knocks at the door and sat firmly down in a corner. As long as he is neither fed nor entertained he will usually get bored after a while and go away.' 'Ineffable: (1) cannot be expressed in words (2) cannot be sworn at. 'Oblivion: nothing to worry about.' 'Go in peace: (1) injunction to the congregation at the end of communion (2) something that is only possible for those blessed with an en-suite bathroom and toilet.' 'Pillar of the church: big thick thing that holds everything up and restricts vision.' "Healing, life-affirming and full of hope." Rob Frost "Subversive but not destructive, cutting but never unkind, the man helps me to want to remain a Christian. Brilliant, fun, laugh-out-loud stuff." Jeff Lucas, author, speaker, broadcaster Adrian Plass is one of today's most successful Christian authors. He has written over twenty books in the last eighteen years, including The Son of God is Dancing.

Excellent pages, slight edge and cover wear.
