    Angels in the Architecture:
    A Protestant Vision for Middle Earth

    A ripe grape contains two parts, unmarried–an interior sugar juice and an exterior skin full of yeast. But if you marry and mix these parts by crushing a grape, it will start toward creating wine, a third distinct thing, new and yet the same–a “wine that maketh glad the heart of man” {Psalm 104:15}. In meditating on Christ’s miracle of creating wine, Augustine lamented that we accept the normal creation of wine as any less miraculous, for even as water “turned into wine by the doing of the Lord, so in like manner also is what the clouds pour forth changed into wine by the doing of the same Lord. It has lost its marvelousness by its constant recurrence.”
