Book Review: "Secrets of the Vine for Women" by Darlene Wilkinson

The book may be small in size, but it has a big message!  

The author Darlene Wilkinson is the wife of author Bruce Wilkinson, who wrote the first Secrets of the Vine book.  Darlene takes his book further by associating many of the teachings directly to a woman's heart.   

The book is based on John 15, where Jesus states the he is the vine, and we are the branches.  But what exactly was Jesus trying to explain by this example?  If it is hard to understand, it will become more clear as you read the author's story of the vinedresser and his daughter, and how the vinedresser was able to make his vineyard prosper.  Through her story, we learn about how God is our Vinedresser, Jesus the Vine itself and how God is disciplining, pruning and abiding in us as the branches.  

Another plus is the study guide in the back of the book for each chapter.  Although this is a short book to read, it is definitely one to read again while doing the study guide in order to get even more from the book.

This book can be purchased through Amazon.
