For those who are late to the game and wondering who Brian Zahnd is and where he's coming from, Water to Wine is a good place to start. You'll be able to experience his long faith journey in these memoirs of a master storyteller and wordsmith. The book marries spiritual autobiography with the fine wine of sage wisdom. I don't doubt that Brian is the best preacher in America, but in this book, you'll also witness the thoughts, dreams and prayers that ensure his oratory is far more than rhetoric. Readers will get also taste of this theological artisan's hand at parables and poetry ... he even provides a playlist of songs that have moved him. But don't mistake this accessibility for watered-down pop Christianity: Brian is as fine a biblical theologian as you'll find and this comes clear throughout these pages. As the subtitle suggests, this is "some of [his] story," but a fine introduction into his other books and podcasts ... and a way to join him on the trail to this point. A keeper!
