    Posted by on 28th Sep 2013

    I became a wine enthusiast in the summer of 2010 at the age of 55, after most of a lifetime as a teetotaler. Your book helpfully pulls together many of the passages of scripture that eased my transition. I will gladly recommend it to inquirers.

    Ken Gentry has written some terrific books, and this is right up there with his best. I have learned more from him than from some of my seminary professors.
