Review of “A Vine-Ripened Life”



Looking at Grace, the fruit of the Spirit, and abiding in Christ, A Vine-Ripened Life reads much like a series of sermons. Written with an eye towards encouraging Spiritual fruitfulness in the lives of believers, Stanley D. Gale’s A Vine-Ripened Life is both honest and hopeful.

Working through the fruit of the Spirit (listed in Galatians 5:22-23) one chapter at a time, A Vine-Ripened Life points us again and again to the work of Christ in us, transforming us by His Grace, training and pruning us into His image, into Spiritual fruitfulness for His Glory. Ideal for Bible studies or personal devotions, A Vine-Ripened Life opens each chapter with Scripture, and ends with questions to cultivate Spiritual growth.

Overall, I found A Vine-Ripened Life to be an enriching little book, worth reading and contemplating. I would give it a “B”.
