Water into Wine
This is truly a book for everyone. Stephen Verney is writing for people 'who haven't studied theology but who know God, who meet him everywhere yet are still searching for him . . . for people who are real and warm and human, yet feel they are missing some deep inner truth'. John's central message is one of repentance - meaning literally 'a change of mind and heart' - which is not a matter of shame or guilt, but both an adventuring out into something totally new and a returning to something profoundly old. Water Into Wine is the result of what Stephen Verney describes as 'a sort of love affair with St John'. John's gospel has interacted startlingly with the events of the author's own life, and, as he reflects on eighteen episodes from this gospel, he encourages his readers to embark on their own similar journeys of discovery.
