    Excellent and invaluable book for Christians to learn more about

    Excellent and invaluable book for Christians to learn more about the Hebrew roots of their faith, and to celebrate the biblical feasts and holy days. Every detail points to Jesus as the fulfillment and focal point of each celebration. I have used this book with my family every year since 1977. Our favorite celebration is Passover; every detail is given to help the uninformed have a meaningful celebration, including recipes and lists of what is needed. I give this practical book a 5+ rating.

    Nice Try; Don't Buy

    This book makes a valiant attempt to attract Christians by including NT teachings in it's primarily OT discussion about the Biblical Feasts. It's frequent use of scriptures is also commendable. Nevertheless, the author places heavy emphasis on observing the Biblical Feasts utilizing the teachings and traditions of Judaism. Sorry, am not interested.
