Books I have read

Wednesday, January 03, 2007

Another book I was given over the Christmas period was 99 Things to Do Between Here and Heaven: Live Extreme! by Peter Graystone. Peter has been involved in the leadership of Emmanuel Church, South Croydon where I grew up. He is a great speaker and writer, someone who is not afraid to say what he thinks and really get to the heart of what a bible passage is about.

This book contains 99 different ideas of things to do between now and heaven. They vary in content, time and cost requirements, suggestions include lighting a candle, doing an extreme sport, taking a sabbath and learning New Testament greek, planting a tree, or becoming a beer or wine buff. The ideas are laid out neatly on double page spreads with some details as to how to do the activity, information on time and financial costs, a couple of bible verses for reflection, some interesting quotes, and space for you to write your own progress.

I had great fun thinking about which of the 99 I had done, but also other people, including Peter, had done. The book is well worth dipping into and every so often going and doing one of the suggestions. Definitely worth getting hold of.
