The Rev Diaries by Rev. Adam Smallbones

Lovereading view...

Spin-offs can be crass and dull but here’s one that’s very funny indeed, TV’s Rev, Adam Smallbone’s New Year’s Resolution is to keep a diary, his other pledge to give up smoking falls by the wayside on the 2nd January.... From the extract I’ve been able to read, these are the words of a kind, frustrated man, overwhelmed and accident prone, it’s also very funny and manages to say a great deal too about the state of modern religion.

The Rev Diaries by Rev. Adam Smallbones

The Rev Diaries is the hilarious tie-in novel to the award-winning hit BBC1 comedy, Rev. When vicar Adam Smallbone swapped his rural parish for St Saviours in Hackney, he thought he was going somewhere where he would be able to make a difference. Somewhere his ministry would have a purpose. Or that was the idea. But an eccentric, needy band of parishioners, unhelpfully attractive head teacher of the local CofE school and a waspish Deacon with Adam in his crosshairs would test the patience of a saint. And Adam, despite his best intentions, is no saint. So he muddles along, trying to do the right thing. Thank God he's got his diary...Reverend Adam Smallbone is the vicar of St. Saviour in the Marshes in Hackney. Adam lives at the vicarage with his wife, Alex.
