War of the Worlds

Adrian Plass

$17.99

Paperback
Also Available In
Adrian Plass considers the pull of the spirit and of the flesh and how this often leads us to live compartmentalised lives. We allow God only into certain bits and suffer embarrassment when our compromised private lives and shiny public lives collide.

War of the Worlds is about spiritual warfare, maturity, prayer and the fear of true commitment. It's a book that battles to reunite the secret world of what we are, with the public world of what we appear to be, in an outrageous and seriously funny advance into the no-man's-land of genuine Christian engagement. Adrian brings the Bible alive with rather unexpected soap opera characters; he introduces us to a God who is much more playful than we thought and asks questions such as:
- If doubt and insecurity are the elephants in the room, how do we deal with these huge creatures?
- How have we allowed so many herds of sacred cows to grow so large? True authenticity demands a major cull.

Essential reading
5 stars By Stephen Nicholson, Mar 18 2012
Adrian Plass has excelled himself in this book that uses his typical humorous stories (modern parables) to get us to see the absurdity of many supposedly Christian beliefs and practices, and to draw us into a clearer understanding of the core of Christian beliefs and living.
No rules, no dogma, just stories helping us to better understand the Gospel.
A lot like a New Testament letter, except with lots of humour.  Good enough to be added to the NT!
