This is a humorous, fictional satire of Christian life, including such moments as trying to move a paperclip by faith and the enthusiastic but not very talented young Christian band, 'Bad News for the Devil'. Plass followed this up with a sequel in 1997, called The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass Christian Speaker Aged 45 3/4, in which he became a prominent Christian speaker and toured Australia with his fictional wife Anne and son Gerald. Adrian wrote another diary known as The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass, on Tour: Aged Far Too Much to Be Put on the Front Cover of a Book in 2004. Adrian Plass (1948, Tunbridge Wells) worked with disadvantaged children for several years before suffering a breakdown and then embarking on a career as a writer. The first thing he ever wrote was "The Visit", a short novel in which a fictional local Church in England is visited by Jesus (published in England only as part of the short stories collection The Final Boundary). "Der Besuch" is the German version of the novel which was made into a 40 minutes film in 2006. He recorded his experience as a youth worker in the novel Broken Windows, Broken Lives. He also travels around Britain and the world as speaker.
Some of his talks and sketches are brought together in Cabbages for the King and Clearing Away the Rubbish. Plass is an Anglican who lives with his wife Bridget in East Sussex, England.
