Download and read online Ancient Wine and the Bible in PDF and EPUB Having spent years in the pastorate, David Brumbelow has observed the tragedies associated with consumption of intoxicating beverages. Brumbelow determined to research the matter and reassess the teachings of Scripture about alcohol. The volume you hold, Ancient Wine and the Bible: The Case for Abstinence, addresses the subject with keen logic, a grasp of history, and thorough exegesis of biblical literature. Acknowledging that the Scriptures do not retain an expressed mandate against drinking alcoholic beverages as "thou shalt not steal,"he, nevertheless, demonstrates that the overwhelming witness of the Bible is like a mighty breaking wave on the north shore of Oahu, demanding abstinence based on case histories of the devastation of "strong drink" added to the "wisdom" literature of the Bible in its repeated call for abstinence.

Download and read online The Spirituality of Wine in PDF and EPUB Explores the unique place of wine in a healthy, faithful Christian spirituality Wine plays an important role both in Scripture and in the Christian church, but its significance has received relatively little theological attention in modern times. This book fills that gap. Having grown up on a family winery in Bavaria, theologian Gisela Kreglinger artfully brings together the world of wine and Christian spirituality in this book. Viewing wine as a gift of God's created bounty and as a special symbol used pervasively throughout Scripture, Kreglinger canvasses the history of wine in the church, particularly its use in the Lord's Supper, discusses the fascinating process of winemaking, and considers both the health benefits of wine and the dangers of alcohol abuse. Offering a vision of the Christian life that sees God in all things -- including the work of a vintner and the enjoyment of a well-crafted glass of wine -- The Spirituality of Wine makes a unique contribution to a full-bodied Christian spirituality.
