The Feasts of the Bible is a quick overview and summary that celebrates and explains the meanings behind the different feasts and why they are important to God. This book contains an easy-to-read list that provides the name and an explanation of each holiday, date of observance, and reveals how each holiday points to Jesus as the promised Messiah.
