Secrets of the Vine

This book was a little dose of encouragement. A quick, simple read on a very meaningful passage of the Bible. It helped give a little insight into God's perspective on our circumstances -- good and bad. 

John 15 is much more real to me after spending a few months in Italy and seeing vineyards like this: 

It's amazing how God used simple reminders of His Words throughout Scriptures that are still visible to us today. This passage focuses on the blessing of being deeply connected with God and what it means to bear fruit. "As [Jesus] talked, I believe He was pointing to a branch, to leaves, to a vine. But He was looking right at His friends. With every word, He was thinking of His love for them, of the challenges they'd face, of the amazing and specific future God had in mind for each one of them. And I believe He was thinking of you" (12-13).

I reviewed this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
