Endorsements


Why should we Jews have all the fun? This book shows Christians how to incorporate the joy, wisdom and human interrelating of biblical celebrations into their family and communal life. I say 'family and communal life' rather than just 'life' because this book, unlike much of Western Christianity, does not emphasize primarily the individual. Martha Zimmerman has absorbed the Jewish - and biblical - emphasis on community and family, and she teaches it to all who will read her engaging book. By celebrating these festivals Christians will not be 'Judaizing' themselves but enriching their lives and enhancing their experience of the Lord. So join with the Lord, join with the Jewish people, and join in the fun.
