Common Knowledge



A light-hearted and relatively quick read. A middle-aged husband and father shares ~6 months of life in diary format, mostly focused on church activities.

Anyone that's spent any time in or around churches can relate in some way to many of the characters and issues.

I was expecting a bit more of a laugh - I found the tales mildly amusing.

A positive and thought-provoking sequel to the author's book 'The Shadow Doctor'. This one answers most of the questions that were left open at the end of the first book, and so is best read after it.

There's less of a story in this one - notwithstanding a dramatic encounter with a church leader, and a budding romance - but Jack learns a great deal through discussion and spending time with 'Doc', learning something of how he works, and beginning to be able to trust that he, too, can listen to God and say the right thing.

It's not all serious - there's banter and plenty of meals, and some delightful encounters with significant people. But there's more of an obvious agenda, to help people (in the church or just observing) to question their preconceived ideas and terminology, and to see life and faith in more flexible terms.

Not just one of my favourite Adrian Plass books - one of my favourite books altogether! I nearly died of laughter

I wonderful book that deals with grief in what feels like a real and honest manner. The author approaches the subject from a Christian perspective, but it feels neither preachy or full of the usual platitudes. Maybe not for everyone, but I think well worth the read.
