Still Crazy: Love, laughter and tears from the world of the Sacred Diarist

Adrian Plass

3 Reviews

Religious & spiritual fiction

You don't have to be mad to read this book. But a dash of the right kind of crazy won't go amiss... Adrian Plass is back - with a new selection of stories, conversations and poems combining spiritual insights with laugh-out-loud humour.

'I think I need to explain why I decided to call this book STILL CRAZY. Firstly, because I've been at this writing-and-speaking business for quite a while now, and the passion to share my thoughts still hasn't subsided. Secondly, because I am more and more convinced that a healthy dose of the right kind of crazy might be just what we need to cope with the ups and downs of modern life, and of faith.

'Join me as we explore some of the strange, funny, puzzlingly pointless little side turnings that, generally speaking, we are too busy to bother with but which might just lead us to the place where we need to be: one place. One thing. One person.

'Lots of laughs along the way. A few tears. It can feel a bit crazy. We'll get there.'
From the Introduction

From the challenges of growing old (un)gracefully to reflections on the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, this is a wide-ranging collection with lashings of Adrian's trademark humour. Whether considering the paradoxes and contradictions of faith and the church, or the unexpected blessings encountered along the way, this collection is thought-provoking and encouraging in equal measure.

There are fresh entries from the Sacred Diary and new insights into the world of the Shadow Doctor, and finally Adrian considers the mystery of love, and ponders its power to help us change our world for good.

Praise for Still Crazy: Love, laughter and tears from the world of the Sacred Diarist

  • Plass handles the issue of how Christians relate to one another outside of their usual environment (church) with comedic skill and sensitivity. His characterisations are brilliant. I literally laughed out loud. - Christianity

  • Equal parts heart-warming as humorous and shows God's love for the mixed-bag of people in a church. - Church of England Newspaper

  • Plass's greatest gift, in my opinion, is to weave the serious in with his playfulness in a way that doesn't seem forced, and can be quite profound. - Church Times
