Front Cover
Zondervan, 1998 - Fiction - 143 pages
1 Review
Another likely best-seller from Adrian Plass, A Year at St Yorick's will do for the Church of England what the Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass did for charismatic Christians. Remember the Sacred Diarist trying to take spiritual authority over a paper clip? This time Adrian Plass turns his satirical yet affectionate eye on the Church of England, in this spoof collection of monthly parish magazines which lampoons the life of a fictional rural parish. These are tempestuous times for the Church of England (the Toronto Blessing, the ongoing rumbles about disestablishment, the debate about monarchy, divorce and the state), and as ever Adrian's humour is full of wisdom and compassion as well as wild irreverence.
