WINE IN THE BIBLE is designed to help people to develop strong moral convictions needed to resist the social pressure to drink alcoholic beverages. With painstaking research the book compellingly shows that the Bible consistently teaches total abstinence as a divine imperative. This teaching has been obscured by many modern Bible versions which mistakenly translate as be temperate or be sober, some of the clearest apostolic admonitions to be abstinent. A thoughtful reading of this book may well provoke a revolution in the attitude of many Christians toward alcoholic beverages.
WINE IN THE BIBLE is foreworded by three distinguished scholars. One of them is Dr. Robert P. Teachout, Professor of Old Testament at Detroit Baptist Seminary and author of a doctoral dissertation on The Use of Wine in the Old Testament, presented at Dallas Theological Seminary. In his Foreword, Prof. Teachout wrote: Bacchiocchi has done a thorough and convincing job of examining the actual truths of the Biblical teaching on this subject. He has also answered carefully and well the objections of those who disagree with his position. Prof. Stephen Reynolds, one of the translators of the New International Version, and author of two books on the Bible and alcohol, also wrote: I am greatly impressed by the scholarship of WINE IN THE BIBLE which I trust will do much good.

My background is rather unique. I was born and brought up in Rome, Italy, a stone-throw from the Vatican wall. For my college education I went to England where he earned a B. A. degree in Theology at Newbold College. From England I came to America for my graduate studies and earned a M. A. and a B. D. degrees at Andrews University Theological Seminary. Upon completing my seminary training in 1964, I went with my wife, Anna, to Ethiopia where I served for five years as Bible and History teacher.
In 1969 I returned to my native city of Rome to study at the prestigious Pontifical Gregorian University, where I was the first non-Catholic to be admitted in over 450 years of its history. At the Gregoriana I spent the next five years working toward a Doctoratus in Church History. I was awarded a gold medal by Pope Paul VI for attaining the academic distinction of summa cum laude for my class-work and dissertation From Sabbath to Sunday.
After completing my doctorate in 1974, I was invited to teach at Andrews University, a Seventh-day Adventist institution located in Berrien Springs, Michigan. For the past 23 years I have served at Andrews University as Professor of Theology and Church History. To be able to pursue more fully my ministry of research into vital Biblical truths, for the past 26 years I have taught only only from January to May of each year. From June to December I am off-teaching so that I can dedicate myself fully to research timely Biblical truths. The result of this ministry has been the publication of 15 volumes which have helped thousands of people around the world to better understand and experience Biblical truths.Review:
