Product Description

Inspired by the picturesque grapevines of Tuscany, evangelical speaker and bible study leader Moore (So Long, Insecurity) takes readers on a smart, engaging metaphorical exploration of the connection between Christianity and viticulture. Plentiful biblical references ground her study, such as Eden in Genesis and the importance of wine in Revelation, to create and analogy—largely based around patience, maturity, and trust—for God’s work in each person’s life. Moore finds faith parallels and human qualities in vines and grapes, suggesting, for instance, that grapes have a distrust of their vinedressers with regard to when and where they are planted and pruned, and why: “If you’re in Christ, He is your true Vine whether you realize it or not. But a whole new way of flourishing begins when you know it. When you count on it. Whey you live like it.” She laces her analysis with many personal stories and reiterates the idea of God’s grace and forgiveness with gusto. Her detailed explanations of vineyards and how they work creates a fitting metaphor for her idea of how each Christian must cultivate their life knowing God has a larger plan to bear “good fruit” despite struggle. Moore’s fans and Christians looking for enthusiastic inspiration will love this.
