"How to Pour New Wine into Old Wineskins" ?

At first, I thought this book title was a joke.

Apparently not.

All due respect to the author; I even have one of his books.

He may have had nothing to do with the terrible title.

But I seem to remember Someone saying this ("pouring new wine into old wineskins" ) is something that by definition and design couldn't/shouldn't be done.

And check the subtitle. Jesus also specifically addressed the subtitle, suggesting that if it is done via the way of the title, all is lost.

"No one" does this, he says:

Jesus said: “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; it will never work. For the old skins would burst from the pressure, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine is stored in new wineskins so that both are preserved.”
(matt 9:17)
