In this Bible study for personal or group use, Erin Davis looks at the seven feasts that God gave the nation of Israel in Leviticus 23. These feasts established a rhythm of seasons and worship for Israel, and each feast points to and was fulfilled in Jesus. Davis writes in a personal, casual way that is easy to understand and approachable. I appreciated how this book is primarily a Bible study, as opposed to devotional reading, and how she continually brings out the connections between the Old and New Testaments. I also thought Davis did a great job of applying the Scriptures to our lives today. A particular challenge to me came from the chapter about the Feast of Unleavened Bread, reminding me how, just like there is no such thing as a little leaven in a loaf of bread, there’s no such thing as a little sin in my own life. All sin is offensive to God and needs to be thrown away (94). The book is divided into eight weeks with five lessons in each week and includes plenty of space for writing.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher (Moody) in exchange for my review.
