Now back in print in a new American Vision version: What Would Jesus Drink?: A Spirit-Filled Study, by Joel McDurmon. Don’t miss our Special Offer below. . . .
The lesson of this book is not merely about liberty or license in drinking, but one of deep, biblical theology, blessing, joy, community, fellowship, and maturity. It is about godly work and dominion, regularly punctuated by drops of blessing reminding us of the fullness of the kingdom still future.
This book repudiates and ridicules the fearful, unbiblical agenda of prohibitionists and forbidders, and returns to the biblical teaching of joy and hope—a joy and hope that exist now as foretastes from which we may return daily to our callings of work, toil, community, and progress.
If you take from this book an attitude merely of license to indulge in feasting and
drinking, then you will not have learned its lessons. Worse, you may be doomed to run into the opposite life of slack, ease, and perhaps even drunkenness, depression, and despair. I can only encourage anyone with such a mindset to read this book before they drink and rest. If you cannot come to grips with the role of alcohol as a foretaste of joy to come, and in its proper perspective of work, productivity, and dominion, then perhaps you should abstain.
Drink without work is sloth. Work without drink is slavery. Work and then drink is society. It points to salvation. Embrace it.
