"I am the vine; you are the branches..." In Chasing Vines, Beth Moore takes the metaphor of the vine and unearths truths seemingly new, yet also familiar because truth resonates. A powerful work on the way to live a life that matters.

This is one of the best books I have ever read! And I read a lot.

I loved the parallels and illustrations she uses with vineyards- Beth really did her research with this book and it's so evident.

Read this book! I've already pre-ordered 5 copies for friends!

Ah, Ms. Beth shes back again. Let me tell you, this book does not disappoint. One sentence that Beth Moore said in a video Bible study I did years ago was this: It is to your Fathers glory that you bear much fruit. I remember it clearly. I can still hear her saying it, bent over the podium she was teaching from, emphasizing glory and much in her semi-raspy, adamant, very Beth way.

I didnt know for a long time she was directly referencing Scripture here John 15:8. This book is about that quote.

I've read almost all of Beth's books and I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is her best! This book is full of wisdom, insight, revelation and good ol' hard truths. And yet, you feel the unconditional love of the Father in it's pages . . .His deep desire that we each know who we are and Who's we are. Beth takes us through the Bible and uses the natural process of planting vineyards to help us understand how painstakingly the Father (the VineDresser) tends the vines, lovingly ...more

This book is both convicting and encouraging! Beth Moore truly has a gift of being able to put in to words what our hearts are feeling.
Here is one of my favorite quotes from the book:

We long for continuity, for some semblance of purpose-anything that might suggest were on the right track. Instead we feel like ashes, leftovers from a bygone fire, blown aimlessly by the wind. We feel like were not even important enough to be forgotten, because we were never known in the first place. Our

You need to get a warm blanket, your most comfortable pjs and your favorite cup of coffee for this one. You will not be able to put it down. Beth does not disappoint and you can hear her voice as you read this. It is such an easy read you find yourself 2 hours later so wrapped up in Jesus and loving every word. This is a must read no matter what season you are in your life. We all need to be living a fruitful life!!!!

I loved how the book had 4 parts, The Vineyard, The Vinedresser, The Vine, The Fruit. It is a deep encouragement to me. Knowing that the grapes thrives on rocky soil. If you try to maintain the pristine soil for the grapes. It will wither. Im celebrating to make the hardships an opportunity to thrive and grow. I loved the personable writing of Beths. Felt like I had coffee with her as I read. Ought I say, wine? :-) ...more

If you're thinking about reading this book, don't think about it another second. DO IT! I havent read a non-fiction book this quickly or with such excitement in a long time. In her usual full of faith, scripture packed, truth speaking way, Beth encourages us to dig into the pages of scripture about vines. Of all things, I never would've guessed how intriguing, encouraging and challenging that journey would be. There's depth, hope, encouragement and invitations along the way to abide in Christ ...more

From the moment I began reading it, I was captivated by the imagery and insight of a vineyard. It was as if I were walking alongside Beth through a vineyard sharing hope. There were moments of laughter and tears as I turned each page anticipating the next word. My favorite chapter was #4, I have went back and read it several times. My head can't even begin to comprehend God's love for me, all I'm left to do is sit and bask in it. His song over me is beautiful and incorruptible.

Beth Moore is such a down-to-earth authentic writer. I so love the real life examples she gives. I love the way she has taken the time (for us) to research and spell out horticulture especially as it pertains to grapes & vines. It made the Bible come alive for me. (Again). I am so blessed to have read it; to know that Jesus sees ME! Specifically and deliberately... I matter. Wept several times and have already begun re-reading it, this time with pen and highlighter in hand. I highly ...more

I dont Agree with everything in this book or where Beth Moore draws all her lines. But I really enjoyed the study of vines and vineyards in the Bible and all the many references to the agricultural aspects of them and the how they apply to my life. Vines are planted sometimes transplanted and grow best in hard weather conditions. I was encouraged and challenged in the fruit I am bearing, that pruning is for those who will grow the most fruit and to remember that God is still working in my winter ...more

The name of the second [Joseph] called Ephraim, For God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction. Genesis 41:52. Not before the land of his affliction. Not after the land of his affliction. In the smack-middle of the land of his affliction. Whos to say the topography of my anxiety is not the most fertile of my life? No question is more relevant that this: What kind of fruit are we producing? Through anxiety, my heart has grown warmer toward people and I crave peoples company (love). I ...more

John 15 will never be the same after reading this book. A passage I have read a many times has never come more alive.

Who would have thought this book would be the glimpse of Him that I neededHis proof that He is has been there all along. His truth that His timing is so much greater than mine. That everything I had been questioning about what He called me towards would be answered.

Each chapter gives glimpse into seasons of being a believer. Some you may not have had, some you may have had many

Chasing Vines is not just a reading; it's an experience. Beth Moore packs the pages with, not only scripture, but also a vivid description of where she is taking us during this moment. The Lord has hope for every single one of us. He exclaims this through His scripture, and she illuminates them with every chapter and verse. We take a walk through the vineyards of Italy and find our heritage there, whether we are Italian or not. Beth describes the viticulture and terroir with such passion that ...more

Beth Moore is a gifted teacher of the Bible and spiritual mentor to many. In her new book, Chasing Vines: Finding Your Way to an Immensely Fruitful Life, Ms. Moore takes the reader deeper into her own spiritual journey by walking us through the process of growing a grapevine. The in-depth background knowledge provides a greater awareness of the rich, detail-oriented path our own spiritual journeys take as we seek to know God on a deeper level.

Throughout the book, Chasing Vines, Beth Moore

Excellent. As usual, Mrs. Moore taught me more than I thought I wanted to know about grapevines and their use and symbolism in the Bible, but I walk away richer for it. More than once as I read I had to stop and share passages with friends--at least one of which promptly purchased the book for herself. I laughed and pondered and even cried (which I don't do easily) through the text, my respect for the author growing not because of the obvious research she put into this book but because of the ...more

Chasing Vines illuminated the themes and metaphors of vines, vineyards, and fruitfulness that Ive been noticing in my own studies of scriptures. In todays technological savvy world, we can lose some of the true meanings of the agricultural references of the time in which the Bible was written. Beth Moore makes excellent connections to the original Greek and Hebrew words and meanings as well as draws on culture context and viticulture processes that bring more meaning to the Christian faith ...more

In Chasing Vines Beth Moore brings Scripture to life! She beautifully weaves understanding of how much needs to happen to a vine in order to yield lavish fruit with perspective on the happenings in our circumstances that yields trust in God and fruitful living to His glory. Beth is a master story teller, authentic, truthful, and willing to share personal challenges and victories to encourage others. This book is filled with perspective on abiding in the True Vine (Jesus) while we wait with ...more

Beth Moore has a knack for somehow managing to bring levity and power to the same paragraph. Throughout Chasing Vines, Beth moves her reader from the vineyard to a deep exploration of what it means to abide in Christ. I found myself pausing frequently to take in and converse with God about the deeper meaning of a fruitful life, and along the way was delighted that Moore is a perfect guide--thoughtful, humble, insightful and courageous. Highly recommend.

Beth has mentored me through the decades with her words and in-depth Bible studies. I was eager to get my hands on her newest book, especially after I saw the theme. I also published a Bible study on the process flourishing depicted in Scripture. I love how Beth makes John 15 and the metaphor of the Vine and Vinedresser come alive in unique ways. She offers history, context, Bible teaching and personal story - all with that signature Southern-girl wit blended in! Im savoring every page of this ...more

Ill never have all the words for this review, but Ill give my best attempt to a few. It was profound in the way it met me in my journey. It feels like ordained timing. On top of that, it was well written. I laughed. I cried. I rolled my eyes. I smirked. Her language is enjoyable and wit is woven effortlessly into the books pages. The span of this book feels like I got to follow the journey of the Israelites from start to finish, a vine from start to finish, Jesus start to finish and myself from ...more

Balm to my soul. Loved it from the intro where she tries to explain her love for the vine/vineyard metaphor, which I also share. Every chapter was an encouragement to my heart.

Don't we all want an "immensely fruitful life"? But rest assured, Beth's book is not an easy 3-steps-to-a-fabulous-life self help book. This is a faith-help book, and it will challenge you. The growth process is dirty and tiring...and completely worth the sacrifice and effort! Plus, it is very reader-friendly. Beth often writes in depth Bible studies, and there is an optional study with this book, but the book also stands alone. Of course, it's biblically rooted, but it reads with a flourish ...more

I've had the book in my hot little hands for a couple of weeks now. Beth's books always take me a long time to read (longer than any other books because there is so much to take in). "Chasing Vines" is no different.

There has been much journaling, deep pondering, and well, it's a good thing I got new highlighters for Christmas!

As I'm digging in, one thing that struck me is this quote: "Have guts enough to choose the things that matter now."

Beth has done it again! I recommend this book!

My love for Beth Moore keeps growing with time, and the older I get, the more I am in need of wisdom from a mother in the faith. In Chasing Vines, Beth focuses on the processes of life, and emphasizes that nothing is wasted. Not a single hurt, wound, or difficult season we endure, falls short of God's grace and goodness. In Christ, we find staying power, and in 2020, I know I'm not the only one who needs that.

This book is exactly what the American church needs to read today. Every believer, but especially women, should put this on their reading list.

Beth is an amazing writer who shares her love for Jesus by investing her personal experiences, her research, and her passion into her readers. In Chasing Vines, she expounds on the familiar scripture, and brings to life the significance of Jesus illustration of the Vine and the branches. As usual, after reading Beths book, I few closer to the author and more importantly, closer to the Father. ...more

This book has encouraged me and given me motivation to keep going. Keep digging deeper in my walk of faith. God always has more for us! We are called to produce much fruit and it is satisfying when we do! Beth tells us how to do that and gives us the encouragement to do so!
Great read and a message we ALL need!
