Author and entomologist Clifford P. Ohmart brings reason and clarity to the politically loaded and amorphously defined popular world of sustainable viticulture with this unique and comprehensive examination of the subject. View from the Vineyard does much more than explain what "sustainable" means, its practical importance to the wine industry, and the costs of agribusiness as usual. It provides the farmer with a realistic and achievable path to a sustainable vineyard by describing the challenges of practicing sustainable winegrowing, where integrated pest management fits in, how organic and sustainable farming related, a holistic vision for the farm, how to identify and define your farm's resources, methods for developing sustainable goals, creating a plan to achieve your holistic vision, ecosystem management, and understanding the vineyard as habitat. The book concludes with a self-assessment guide in which growers can easily track their progress through these transitional periods.

In this second novel of the Out of Solitude trilogy, Australian wine writer, Andrew Johnston, is again staying in Europe, this time with his brother, Adrian, for both work and a holiday. He receives an extensive new project from his publisher that takes him through the premium wine producing regions of France, during which he meets up again with a number of his old acquaintances from both France and Dubrovnik. Among these is Niki Menèetiæ and the chance meeting rekindles his old feelings for her. While their relationship develops, Andrew is again drawn into events and affairs which he finds curious and difficult to fathom, having to rely on his trust in Niki's judgement and his own faith in her to maintain his equanimity. While Andrew's travels through Europe are superficially normal, the tendrils of Niki's world reach out to and entangle him at various stages, bringing with them complications that he is confident he can resolve but whether the opportunity to do so arises in time raises considerable uncertainties for his future.

New York Times bestselling author Barbara Delinsky has written her most complex and emotionally rewarding novel yet: a story of two women, a generation apart, each of whose dream becomes bound with the other's. To her family, Natalie Seebring is a woman who prizes appearances: exquisitely mannered, a supportive wife, and head of a successful wine-producing enterprise. So when she announces plans to marry a vineyard employee mere months after the death of her husband of fifty-eight years, her son and daughter are stunned. Faced with their disapproval, Natalie decides to write a memoir. Olivia Jones is a dreamer, living vicariously through the old photographs she restores. She and her daughter, Tess, cling to the fantasy that a big, happy family is out there just waiting for them. When Natalie hires Olivia to help with her memoir, a summer at Natalie's vineyard by the sea seems the perfect opportunity to live out that fantasy, but all is not as it seems. As the illusion of an idyllic existence comes crashing headlong into reality, the lives of these two women, parallel in so many ways, become a powerful and moving story.

John S. Kloppenborg gives a detailed analysis of one of the most difficult of Jesus' parables, the parable of the Tenants (Mark 12:1-12; Gospel of Thomas 65). He examines the ways in which Christians have typically read and mis-read the parable, and places the parable firmly in the context of the practices of ancient viticulture. The author models a new approach to the interpretation of the parables of Jesus. First, he critically engages the history of interpretation of the text, inquiring into the ideological interests that the parable has engaged during the history of its use in Christian churches and in political discourse. Second, he reconstructs the social world in which the parable was first told, in particular the economic, social, and legal aspects of ancient viticulture. He demonstrates that the parable of the Tenants has mostly been interpreted from the standpoint of those who wield social and political power, a strange irony considering the social status of the Jesus of history and the literary uses of the parable. All of the features common to the parable as it is told by Mark and the Gospel of Thomas make it a perfectly realistic story. It is only Mark's editing of the story that takes it beyond the realistic idiom characteristic of Jesus' other parables. The book concludes with a dossier of 58 papyrus documents relating to various aspects of viticulture and agrarian conflict. It was awarded the 2007 Francis W. Beare Book Award by the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies.

It's no secret that just about everyone today realizes that we are now living in the last of the last days. What Christ proclaimed in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 is coming to pass!Christ gave warning that the period of time known as day, when the works of the Father could be done, would then be followed by night, when no man could work.1000 years are as a day to the Lord and a day as 1000 years. Therefore might we not deduce that 41.7 years are as an hour and .7 years as a minute? Twilight lasts an average of forty minutes in the natural, therefore Twilight in Gods Spiritual Day would be 28 years. We are now well into this time of spiritual twilight and TWILIGHT IN THE VINEYARD proclaims the lateness of the hour and gives warning of how little time is left before the Tribulation begins."And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him, that Yahweh may be all in all." I Cor.15:28 The above verse states the eternal PURPOSE of Yahweh. It is to this end that we should be striving. Thus I have been led to write this book:1. To warn His adopted children who make up the Body of Christ that His return is near2. To state the truth about the nation of Israel and encourage our Jewish brethren to realize that Yahshua is their Messiah (Mashiach) 3. To warn America and other nations that they need to repent and humble them selves before The Almighty Creator4. To explain why America and Britain are allies of Israel5. To inform His dispersed, chosen children of the House of Israel that they will soon be undergoing terrible times during that period referred to as Jacobs trouble but to realize their heritage and know that He will help them.6. To give information on topics that has often been ignored or misunderstood.CAN YOU ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS?Why is the story of JOSEPH so relevant for today?When will the tribulation will begin?Who will really make up the 144,000 and where will they be found?What is the Gospel of the Kingdom?When and where will Christ return?Who is the Mahdi?What is the difference between Satan's angels and his demons?What happened between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2?Why should we know about Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz?Why is America under Yahweh's judgement?Was Eve really created from only a rib of Adam?Who is the one who restrains the coming of the antichrist?Who is the woman in the 12th Chapter of Revelation?Will persecution be vented upon American Christians?What is the importance of the Feast Days of the Lord?Did Christ really die on Friday and rise up on Sunday?What did Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah do?Why is the story of Joseph and his sons significant...especially for us today!Why is Babylon mentioned so often in scripture?To find the answers to these questions and to learn more on many other topics, I urge you to read this book...which was ordained to be written by Yahweh in 1983 at which time He gave this author its title.TWILIGHT IN THE VINEYARD is an anthology and includes the following topics:Name of the Almighty Creator - YHWH, Creator of the Spiritual Realm - YHWH, Creator of Man - YHWH, the Planter - America, Past, Present?ǪFuture? - America, Wake Up! - Babylon - Gospel of the Kingdom - Kingdom of Darkness - The One Who Restrains - Present Day Vineyard of the Lord - The Antichrist - Coming Persecution - Words and Dreams From the Lord - Words from the Heart - To All My True Brothers and Sisters in Our LordPsalm 26:7 "That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Thy wondrous works."Shalom, JoJean
