From Shiraz to Chardonnay, wine has been an essential part of Western Civilization’s religious and cultural experience for millennia. In Divine Vintage, wine expert Joel Butler teams up with biblical scholar Randall Heskett for a remarkable journey that explores how wine has significantly influenced the evolution of human society through the lenses of historical fact and the interpretation of Biblical texts about wine. Along the way, they discover the truth behind how wine infiltrated the biblical world and facts that any wine lover, history buff or spiritually inclined person will find intriguing, including:* why Jesus's first miracle was turning water into wine; * why the Fertile Crescent region was the birthplace of wine; * the amazing varieties of wines drunk millennia ago in the biblical lands; * how the expansion of the Roman Empire resulted in the first wine connoisseurs; * how wine gods became extremely popular and important throughout the biblical lands, their influence extending into the Modern Era at sacrifices and other rites.* A pioneering look at the modern wine renaissance in the Biblical landsDivine Vintage also takes a close look at wines made with ancient techniques, and guides readers on how they too can experience “ancient wines” today.
