Book Review: Secrets of the Vine for Women

By Darlene Marie Wilkinson
ISBN: 978-1-60142-387-9

This book is an eloquent adventure through John 15 of the Bible.  The story parallels the story of Man that keeps a vineyard and his daughter.  I really enjoyed how this story was carried throughout the entire book. The author's love of God and desire for others to also abide in Him is very apparent. The author did give advice to read the Bible as though it was written to you personally.  I disagree with this statement.  True there are certain platitudes that were given to all people in the Bible, but much must be taken in context.  One must consider who is being spoken too, and what situation they are in.  Aside from this a very good book, with lots of great reminders about staying connected to God.
