Summer Reading

recommended by Vineyard Records UK

As Summer looms and the opportunity to catch-up on your reading beckons, Vineyard Records UK recommend their five essential reads for Summer 2014.

Faith On The Streets – Les Isaac & Rosalind Davies

Faith-on-the-streetsVRUK say: This is a great book looking at street pastors/angels and the role they play in serving and evangelising in their local communities.

They say:  9,000 trained volunteers, 11 years, 250 towns, 7 countries.  These are the numbers that are bringing about change, town by town, to the face of the UK… and more and more countries around the world. Since 2003, Street Pastors have been a feature of the night-time high street: friendly faces and listening ears, defusing tension and helping people get home.  These are the Street Pastors: caring; listening; helping.  And this is the church in action – taking its faith on the streets.

Travelling Light – Max Lucado

travelling-lightVRUK say: A book that’s flying off the shelves, dealing with busy and over-burdened lives and what better time to assess your life than in the summer months.

They say: Weary travellers. You’ve seen them-everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels, and backpacks. Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop. We’ve all seen people like that. At times, we are people like that-if not with our physical luggage, then at least with our spiritual load. We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We’re worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn’t it be nice to lose some of those bags? That’s the invitation of Max Lucado. With the Twenty-third Psalm as our guide, let’s release some of the burdens we were never intended to bear.

The Daniel Plan – Rick Warren

daniel-planVRUK say: This is a great plan that people could look at doing with their small groups – The Daniel Plan is a Christian diet and fitness plan. The book above is the main thing but there are all kinds of products that accompany this, including a cookbook, dvd, study guide and journal. All available on our shop individually or you can buy everything in one big pack for £49.47 (Saving £12.48 on the full set).  Summer savings!

They say: Not another weight loss program. Not a new gym membership. Not a diet of chalky drinks and pre-packaged entrees…
The Daniel Plan: 40 Days to a Healthier Life by Pastor Rick Warren, Dr. Daniel Amen, and Dr. Mark Hyman, is an innovative approach to achieving a healthy lifestyle that is rooted in one’s relationship with God.

The Treasure Principle – Randy Alcorn

treasury-principleVRUK say: This popular book looks at generosity and how it should shape our lives. This is actually a reprint of a 2001 book but has a brand new concluding chapter included.

They say: Bestselling author Randy Alcorn introduced readers to a revolution in material freedom and radical generosity with the release of the original The Treasure Principle in 2001. Now the revision to the compact, perennial bestseller includes a provocative new concluding chapter depicting God asking a believer questions about his stewardship over material resources. Readers are moved from the realms of thoughtful Bible exposition into the highly personal arena of everyday life. Because when Jesus told His followers to “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,” He intended that they discover an astounding secret: how joyful giving brings God maximum glory and His children maximum pleasure. Discover a joy more precious than gold!
