Bring up the issue of alcohol in your local church and you're bound to hear many different views and opinions on how the Christian should respond. In reality though, the only view that matters is the biblical one. Whether Christians want to imbibe or abstain, the first question that must be answered is "What Would Jesus Drink?" With a compelling combination of biblical theology, scriptural exegesis, and Jewish cultural history, author Joel McDurmon takes on the question with a clarity and honesty that is as refreshing as it is rare.
Taking a neutral corner in any debate is not McDurmon's style, and it is certainly not the strategy of this book. He does not stop with simply answering the title question, instead he goes on to show that food and drink, and the act of eating or drinking itself, have for far too long been taken for granted by modern Christians. What Would Jesus Drink? A Spirit-Filled Study is not just another dull book about Christian doctrine and practice; it is a rich and full study of the goodness and grace of God. It is an intensely practical book about the joy of celebration and the blessings of covenant community.

A surprising study on wine, drink and relationship
Date:March 1, 2013
What Would Jesus Drink will go in my reference library. Joel McDurmon has addressed an issue of liberty without the entanglements of denominationalism or compromising his conservative values. I found it troubling at times, but I could not refute his Scriptural research. Too often we are made to fill guilty while we know we should not let anyone judge us in matters of food and drink. What Would Jesus Drink goes a long way in resolving these issues. I would like to see his research on other doctrinal issues.
