Item description for The Christian and Drinking: A Biblical Perspective on Moderation and Abstinence (Biblical Discernment For Difficu) by Randy Jaeggli...

Does the Bible condemn drinking? Some verses seem to point to wine as a permissible drink given by God for man's enjoyment. Other verses warn against the dangers of wine and "strong drink." How does a Christian make the right choice on this controversial topic? For the Christian today, testimony and prudence demand a careful examination of what the Scriptures teach on this subject. In The Christian and Drinking, Randy Jaeggli examines relevant passages in the light of thorough research into ancient and modern cultural norms and expectations.

1. Old Testament Teaching On Alcoholic Beverages 2. New Testament Teaching On Alcoholic Beverages 3. Historical Views Of Alcohol Consumption 4. Medical Views Of Alcohol Consumption 5. Christlikeness And Drinking

Reviews - What do customers think about The Christian and Drinking: A Biblical Perspective on Moderation and Abstinence?

Honest, Biblical Perspective on Alcohol  Jul 28, 2009
Dr. Jaeggli's position is that a Christian should exercise total abstinence; a traditional fundamentalist position. How he gets there is somewhat different than many fundamentalists.

The first part of the book surveys the OT and NT references to alcohol. He concludes that Scripture prohibits excessive drinking. The Scriptural warnings also indicate that it is very easy to move from moderate drinking to excessive drinking. Yet he admits the Scripture never explicitly bans alcohol.

Jaeggli conclusion is summed-up in his final chapter on personal holiness. Upon conversion, a believer's life should be progressively becoming more like Christ. Appropriately, that process means jettisoning things that are unnecessary.

In other words, we ought not to be so concerned about whether or not we can, but whether or not we should do something. What benefits do we gain from drinking? Few. The negatives? Many.

Assuming the position advanced by many (i.e. moderate drinking is permissible), Jaeggli's book makes a worthy defense of one of fundamentalist's most attacked positions: A Christian should never drink.
That other guy doesn't know what he's talking about  Mar 20, 2009
So... did the people in the Bible times know about Mr Welch's process of keeping grape juice pure and free from fermentation? What a joke. Jaeggli is a scholar, and this moron is not. Read the whole thing and you will not come away with the idea that Jaeggli says drinking is ok. Good book.
Pitiful  Feb 24, 2009
This book is a pitiful excuse for scholarship. The man builds his case on the unproven assumption that Bible wine is always alcoholic, a premise that better scholars have denied for decades. He expects the reader to simply trust his judgment and buy into the "one wine" theory. Hard to believe that he is a Seminary prof. Harder still to believe that his Seminary published this dribble.
