's unique perspective on life and faith can be enjoyed once more in this energizing compilation of two autobiographical books— The Growing Up Pains of Adrian Plass
and Why I Follow Jesus Told with disarming honesty and his usual irresistible humour, The Growing Up Pains of Adrian Plass
is about the sometimes difficult progress of faith. From being 'asked to leave' his grammar school as a youth, to the ups and downs throughout his life and relationship with God, Plass departs from the usual formula of the 'Christian paperback' and tells it like it is...warts and all. In Why I Follow Jesus, Plass explains why a man who had a short-lived life 2000 years ago still has meaning for us today. As he says, ''I follow Jesus because he's less narrow and boring about salvation than an awful lot of his followers.'' With many more laugh-out-loud witticisms, stories and anecdotes, this collection is for anyone who wonders how it is possible to follow Jesus and remain a real human being in a real world.
