The pre-eternal trinity, the creation of the world, the hand-sculpting of man, and the plan to redeem mankind, are presented to set forth the wonder on which the book rests. The narrative then moves to a verse by verse exegesis of Proverbs 31, which reveals the book’s inspiration. It is written in an atypical style that includes touches of whimsy. The discourse is more thought provoking than conspicuous. The weaving of the vineyard theme commences from there with a nuanced application of the biblical narrative found in John 15. The journey continues into a storehouse of wines, each categorized by their character. The reader starts with a sampling of the ‘Good Wines’, which is the custom of the ancient day wedding feast. Other selections include the ‘Memorable’, the ‘Household’ and the ‘Varietals’. There is even a small selection of ‘Boxed Wines’ to peruse through! It is all topped off with a ‘Pairing of Wine With Your Course’ tutorial. The happy ending sends the reader off into the world with a small serving of ‘Dessert Wine’ —a short, sweet essay, crafted to linger in the mind. But not before a poetic finale with a celebratory toast being raised to the Most High God. The reader will close the book with an uplifted and inspired heart.
