RachelAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A good place to start for those who want to learn more about the celebrations in the Bible and in ChristianityNovember 5, 2017RachelAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Moments and Days is a good place to start for those who want to learn more about the celebrations in the Bible and in Christianity. This book takes the reader through the history and celebrations in both the Jewish and Christian calendars. Each chapter contains suggestions for ways believers can celebrate the various Jewish and Christian holidays.
The author, Michelle Van Loon, was raised in a Jewish home, and she became a believer in Jesus as the Jewish Messiah when she was a teenager. She has a unique perspective on these festivals, and I enjoyed learning from her.
Part One of the book tells about the Jewish festivals in the Bible, and it gives descriptions of how these festivals are celebrated today. There is also a chapter that shares about some of the modern Jewish festivals. Part Two of the book tells about the Christian calendar, how it came to be, and how various Christian traditions celebrate in different ways.
Learning about the Jewish festivals is a great way to learn more of our spiritual history and see how Jesus fulfills the prophecies in the Old Testament. I enjoyed reading and learning in this book. I just wish it was longer and more in depth! There is a resource section in the back of the book for those who are interested in doing more research on their own.
