Editorial Reviews

Review

"I've yet to read more remarkable insights into the Jewish feasts and holidays." -- Jan Markell, Olive Tree Ministries

A fabulous resource...she respectfully maintains the Jewish tradition while including the Good News...user-friendly." -- Christian News Northwest, April 2004

From the Inside Flap

"Martha Zimmerman connects us with our Jewish heritage and revives our participation in the same celebrative meals that Jesus ate and enjoyed. Thanks to her enthusiastic recovery of these old menus and their stories, meals may well come to take their place alongside sermons and Bible studies as ways to welcome Jesus into your life."
--Eugene H. Peterson, The Message; Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College

"This book is important reading for anyone who values the Old Testament as the Word of God. Martha Zimmerman writes with love, charm, and wit and shows you God’s redemption and how the Almighty works in a way that Christians seldom see. You’ll love God more and better appreciate His ways for reading Celebrating Biblical Feasts."
--Moishe Rosen, Founder, Jews for Jesus

In the Old Testament, we find that God ordained special days of feasting and celebrating for the Israelites. These were days for the people to come together for rest and refreshment and to glorify Him.

In reading through Exodus and Deuteronomy we learn that by observing these special days, the Israelites would never forget how God had provided for them in the dessert and continued to provide with bountiful harvests after He delivered them from slavery. They were reminded, with each celebration, that they were to leave their old ways of life behind and live a new life with Him. With every celebration they renewed their commitment and trust in the Almighty God. In studying the New Testament, we find Jesus also observed these God ordained holidays.

As Christians in our modern world, I think that we would do well in observing some of these traditional Jewish celebrations, renewing our commitment and giving glory to God for His deliverance and care.

That's why I found the book "Celebrating Biblical Feasts" by Martha Zimmerman, intriguing.

In her book, Ms Zimmerman shows the significance of the ancient feasts from a New Testament perspective. She includes step-by-step guides for the celebration of seven feasts ordained in the Old Testament.

The Sabbath

The Passover

The Omer

Shavuoth

Rosh Hashanah

Yom Kippur

Sukkoth

Included are recipes for traditional Jewish dishes that give an authentic flavor to the celebration and fun activities for family members bringing home the deeper meaning and the reason for celebration.

While this book did contain some good ideas, overall I was not impressed. Only the Levitical feasts are covered (no Purim or Hanukkah). This is fine, but I would have expected some explanation of WHY Purim is omitted, at least. The book falls short of being either "free" of Jewish tradition, or of being Jewish: the formal Jewish "flavor" of the celebrations is kept, along with many of the extra-biblical Jewish ceremonies, and yet blessings are changed and other traditions are added. The author does not make it clear which components are altered (or even THAT they're altered - I only know because I'm slightly familiar with the holidays already).

The layout of each chapter is difficult to follow, as the biblical reasons for celebrating, the traditional means of celebration, and the author's ideas are all jumbled together. I was also not crazy about the fact that several Bible translations were used and most of them were very loose ones - even some of the blessings and other parts of the ceremonies are quotes from paraphrases.

If you have no desire to use the book as a reference and simply want someone to tell you exactly what to do, you might appreciate the book. It also addresses the Passover Seder more thoroughly than some other books (although the ceremony and the reason behind each element are in different parts of the book, making it difficult to decide whether you want to incorporate them all). If you are looking for a solid introduction to the reasons for the holidays, for the historical means of celebrating each holiday, for a more "relaxed" idea of Christian celebration, for a thoroughly Jewish treatment of the holidays, and/or for something which incorporates Purim and/or Hanukkah, keep looking.

LOVE this book. Studying Creation to the Greeks ( My Father's World ) this year has been so enjoyable for my family. Greatly because of the beauty of celebrating the feasts our beloved Savior celebrated. Amazing dynamic added when these easily spelled out lessons are shared with the entire family.

We received this book as part of a homeschool curriculum we are studying this year. I was very excited about the idea of learning how to celebrate biblical feasts! This book doesn't teach well at all because as another reviewer explains: "The layout of each chapter is difficult to follow, as the biblical reasons for celebrating, the traditional means of celebration, and the author's ideas are all jumbled together." This is maddening to try and sort through. As an example; when discussing Passover the ceremony and the reason behind each element are in different parts of the book There must be a book written for the same purpose that does a better job.
