Joan Lipis has written one of the most informative, practical and spiritual books I have ever read on the feasts. It is indeed obvious that God has given her insight and revelation for such a time as this. I was particularly impressed with her in-depth knowledge of how each feast relates to the Kingdom. This is a must read for all serious students of the Bible.Lana Heightly, Founder and President of Women With a Mission
