The beloved characters of Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni’s bestselling novel Sister of My Heart are reunited in this powerful narrative that challenges the emotional bond between two lifelong friends, as the husband of one becomes dangerously attracted to the other. Anju and Sudha formed an astounding, almost psychic connection during their childhood in India. When Anju invites Sudha, a single mother in Calcutta, to come live with her and her husband, Sunil, in California, Sudha foolishly accepts, knowing full well that Sunil has long desired her. As Sunil’s attraction rises to the surface, the trio must struggle to make sense of the freedoms of America–and of the ties that bind them to India and to one another.

The Vine is not an apologetic. It is not a self-help book, nor is it about saving others. It may be a declaration - an amalgamation of thoughts knit together with the motif of a vine - a theological algorithm leading to the Church's destiny as the Bride of Christ. The major premise of The Vine is that of God's overarching plan and purpose for the church, the Bride of Christ. It follows a minor motif of the nature and husbandry of a grapevine. The Vine explores God's covenants, dispensations, and revelations, upon which the life of the faith-vine depends-a novel approach to the beginning, growth, and destiny of the church. Combining the two premises leads to a fulfilling conclusion.

Dying on the Vine

Dying on the Vine

... politicians, and ordinary people from all levels of society were thrust into frantic action against the unknown and vicious killer of vines. ... The phylloxera case serves as a model for the story of all invasive species battles.

Dying on the Vine chronicles 150 years of scientific warfare against the grapevine’s worst enemy: phylloxera. In a book that is highly relevant for the wine industry today, George Gale describes the biological and economic disaster that unfolded when a tiny, root-sucking insect invaded the south of France in the 1860s, spread throughout Europe, and journeyed across oceans to Africa, South America, Australia, and California—laying waste to vineyards wherever it landed. He tells how scientists, viticulturalists, researchers, and others came together to save the world’s vineyards and, with years of observation and research, developed a strategy of resistance. Among other topics, the book discusses phylloxera as an important case study of how one invasive species can colonize new habitats and examines California’s past and present problems with it.

Fruit of the Vine: A Biblical Spirituality of Wine is designed to help the reader grow in spirituality through reflecting on biblical vineyard stores, wine making, and wine as a metaphor for life. A spirituality of wine--categorized as a spirit--connects the spirit in wine to the universal spirit all share. Wine appeals to all five senses. Its bouquet can be smelled; its complexity, often compared to fruit, can be tasted; its shades of red, designating its body, can be seen as it clings to or quickly runs down the inside of a glass. One can hear the pop as the cork leaves the bottle's neck and the gurgle of the wine leaving the bottle as it is poured into a glass. Wine is a major sign of transformation in the process of growth from blossom, sunlight, and water to grapes, which are in turn broken apart, integrated into a whole, and fermented into alcohol. While the wine is aged, it undergoes even more transformation. People are transformed when they share this already multiple-times-transformed beverage. The vineyard and all it produces can reveal the divine if a person but opens his or her eyes to see.

"An exhilarating wine book... No serious wine lover's library is complete without it" Wine Spectator Grapes & Wines is the key to enjoying modern wine. Approaching wine through grapes is in tune with the way consumers now think and learn about wine. Most wines, especially those from the Americas, Australasia and South Africa, are now sold under the name of the grape variety used rather than under the old European system of chateau and appellation name. You're standing in a wine shop and see bottles labeled Aglianico or Tannat. Do you know what they are? Garnatxa sounds familiar and it is, as it is the Basque name of the popular Grenache grape, but how do you know this? You've heard of Carmenere from Chile, and probably bought the wine, but did you know it is an old historic Bordeaux variety? This is the perfect book to help you find out more about the world's top classic grapes, from Cabernet Sauvignon to Zinfandel - the history, the places, the people, the wine styles and the flavours are covered in detail. It is also just the book for dipping into as you come across an unfamiliar grape variety. Grapes & Wines has been thoroughly revised and updated.

The God Who Comforts is a spiritual reading of Jesus' upper room discipleship sermon. What started out as a Passover meal became an inspiring and spiraling manifesto of comfort and challenge. Jesus propels the conversation forward into our hearts and minds. When Jesus got up off his knees and resumed his place of authority, he framed this strategic discourse in the Truth that cannot be packaged as a consumer product or programmed to fit the secular mind. Four distinct comings shape Jesus' sermon in the upper room: his final coming, the Parousia; his gift of the Spirit, the Paraclete; his death and resurrection, the Passion; and his abiding fellowship, the Presence. These four comings are the ways in which Jesus draws near to his disciples, reassuring them that they are not alone. Throughout this conversation we are in the company of the eleven, hearing Jesus speak to us as he spoke to them. This discourse continues to reset twenty-one centuries of discipleship according to the revelation of Jesus Christ.

In his preface to this devotional commentary on the Gospel of John, Meyer writes: "This is the Gospel of the Divine Life of Jesus. The eagle has always been its recognised emblem, as denoting its sublime and heavenly character. And, clearly, in its diction, its insight into the deepest truths, its repeated testimony to the Glory and Deity of our Lord, it holds a unique, place among the records of His life. It soars. It holds fellowship with the Throne. Its eyrie is in the Heart of God. And yet, in one of its aspects, this Gospel is as much the record of the Man Christ Jesus, as of the Only-begotten Son; and for this it is of inestimable worth to all who desire to follow in His steps. There is no part of Scripture more conducive to the culture of the inner life; and it is under this aspect that it is considered in the following pages." This volume contains the following meditations: The Word (John 1:1) The Word In Creation (John 1:2-3) The Word As Light (John 1:9) The Word Made Flesh (John 1:14) The Word Declaring the Unseen God (John 1:18) Three Memorable Days (John 1:23, 29, 37) The Son of Man (John 1:51) The First Miracle (John 2:11) The Temple of the Body (John 2:21) A Psalm of Life (John 3:6) The Shadow of the Cross (John 3:14) “Sent” (John 3:34) Life As a Fountain (John 4:14) Daring to Act in Faith (John 4:50) The Divine Master Workman (John 5:17) The Will of God (John 5:30) The Father’s Name (John 5:43) The Father’s Gift to the Son (John 6:37) The Bread Which Gives and Sustains Life (John 6:57) The Words of Jesus (John 6:68) Rivers of Living Water (John 7:37-39) The Penitent’s Gospel (John 8:11) The Light of Life (John 8:12) Christ’s Absorption in His Father (John 8:28) Made Free by the Son of God (John 8:31, 32, 36) The Glory of Christ (John 8:50) The Works of God (John 9:4) The Blessed Life of Trust (John 10:4) The Ideal Shepherd (John 10:11) The Work of an Ungifted Worker (John 10:40, 41, 42) Love’s Delays (John 11:6) Anointed for His Burial (John 12:3) Falling Into the Ground to Die (John 12:24) The Troubled Saviour (John 12:27) The World and Its Prince (John 12:31) The True Light of God’s Children (John 12:35-36) The Laver in the Life of Jesus (John 13:5) Heaven Delayed But Guaranteed (John 13:36) “Many Mansions” (John 14:2) The Reality of Which Jacob’s Dream Was the Shadow (John 14:6) Christ Revealing the Father (John 14:8-9) The Great Deeds of Faith (John 14:12) How to Secure More and Better Prayer (John 14:16) The Other Paraclete (John 14:16) The Three Dispensations (John 14:17) Three Paradoxes (John 14:18-19) Many Mansions for God (John 14:23) Christ’s Legacy and Gift Of Peace (John 14:27) The Story of the Vine (John 15:1) “Abide in Me, and I in You” (John 15:4) Prayer That Prevails (John 15:7) The Hatred of the World (John 16:2-3) The Work of the Holy Spirit on the World (John 16:8) Christ’s Reticence Supplemented by the Spirit’s Advent (John 16:12-15) The Conqueror of the World (John 16:33) Consecrated to Consecrate (John 17:19) The Lord’s Prayer for His People’s Oneness (John 17:21-23) The Love That Bound Christ to the Cross (John 18:4) Drinking the Cup (John 18:1-14) The Hall of Annas (John 18:13) How It Fared With Peter (John 18:16) The Trial Before Caiaphas (John 18:24) “Judas, Which Betrayed Him” (John 18:2) The First Trial Before Pilate (John 18:28) The Second Trial Before Pilate (John 18:39) The Seven Sayings of the Cross (John 19:16) Christ’s Burial (John 19:40) The Day of Resurrection (John 20:1) The Lake of Galilee (John 21:1) Peter’s Love and Work (John 21:15) The Life-Plan of Peter and John (John 21:22) Back to the Father (John 21:25)
