The Vine is not an apologetic. It is not a self-help book, nor is it about saving others. It may be a declaration - an amalgamation of thoughts knit together with the motif of a vine - a theological algorithm leading to the Church's destiny as the Bride of Christ.
The major premise of The Vine is that of God's overarching plan and purpose for the church, the Bride of Christ. It follows a minor motif of the nature and husbandry of a grapevine. The Vine explores God's covenants, dispensations, and revelations, upon which the life of the faith-vine depends-a novel approach to the beginning, growth, and destiny of the church. Combining the two premises leads to a fulfilling conclusion.
