"Grape Juice in the Bible" presents a strong case for the fact that Israel in Bible times had fresh grape juice as a healthy beverage. It also shows God's disapproval of alcoholic beverages for His people and details the great change in the approval of alcohol among Christians through the last 200 years in America. The reason for this book is clearly presented by a recent blog (aletheiabaptistministries.org):
"It would be an uphill battle merely to advocate moderation in drinking as many conservatives do, but to come to a conclusion that total abstinence is a Biblical mandate, would place one immediately in the backwater of Christian social fellowships. But that is just the conclusion I’ve come to, not just because I find it the overwhelming norm of Christian history, or because the statistics on drinking grow increasingly alarming, but because I’ve become convinced that this is the only consistent biblical teaching."
