Book Description, Modified from Goodreads:
It’s hard to know when you read about the Feast of Booths why exactly it matters for your life. What in the world is the Feast of Trumpets supposed to be teaching you? This guide can help you understand the cultural significance and how these feasts relate to the rest of the Bible. You will discover that passages you once skimmed over are now rich and meaningful in your life today. Erin Davis will teach you: The significance of these feasts and why God wanted His people to celebrate. How each of them point to Jesus and His work in redemption. Why all of this matters for our lives today.

My Review:
7 Feasts is an eight-week Bible study. Each week had an introduction, then five days of study on one of the feasts, and a final section that asked three questions about what we learned. After a week introducing the study and how we're going to use Scripture to interpret Scripture, each week focused on one of the feasts: The Passover, The Feast of Unleavened Bread, The Feast of Firstfruits, The Feast of Weeks, The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement, The Feast of Booths. The author had you read the regulations for each feast as recorded in Leviticus and then brought out related verses (mostly from the New Testament) that help the reader better understand the feast and how Jesus fulfilled the intent of feast. Since I've studied the feasts before, this information was not new for me. However, I would recommend this study for personal or group study if you've never studied this information before.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
