AD 2004, Volume 3, Issue 3
When the Nazi’s captured France, Herman Goring made big plans to plunder France’s greatest treasure, her wine. But the French, in an historic struggle, went to great lenghths to keep their wine hidden from the Germans.
French wine is glorious, but whether you’re a frog or a bog trotter, the glory of wine cannot be appreciated without the Gospel. Likewise, modern evangelicals do not have despised wine because, in some significant ways they have misunderstand the Gospel. One of the ways God judges a nation is by taking away the nation’s wine. From this clear teaching in Scripture we can be sure that wine is good, and that many American Christians need more of it.
In this issue of St. Anne’s Public House we speak with Steve Walker and Vern Spencer, a grapegrower and winemaker, respectively, and also with John Allen, the co-owner of “Vino, a Wine Shop.”
