The main focus of this beautifully made devotional book is John chapter 15, which starts, ‘I am the vine…’, using the analogy of a vineyard and vine-grower as one for Christian growth and increasing maturity. The author recounts his own childhood, where his earthly father was a vineyard owner.

The book is written as 29 short chapters, grouped into broad sections reflecting the four seasons, explaining how each period of the year has a specific purpose in the life of the vine. It could be read at one sitting, but I preferred to read just one chapter most mornings over the course of a few weeks.

Recommended to anyone who would like to know more about vine-growing, and to understand better how the analogy can be used in relation to the Christian life. ( )
