This book is written for all believers who enjoy exploring the Word of God, embracing new insights, and experiencing more of our Creator.
With an extensive background in Christian and Jewish study, Dr. Betham-Lang takes you through a discovery of Jewish holidays and ignites a passionate understanding of how Judaism and Christianity are more closely related that you might imagine. An accurate understanding of Christianity relies upon one's understanding of the Jewish culture and the Semitic theology of the Church's foundations. This includes, to a very great extent, the holidays and feasts of the Bible.
Often ignored in Christian circles, these holidays are unwrapped gifts free for the taking. They compliment and enhance the Christian interpretation and understanding of the world's Redeemer. This valuable resource observes the New and Old Testament in celebrating God's love. Dr. Betham-Lang explains Jewish holidays, provides recipes for observing them, and inspires an appreciation for the deep connection of Christianity to its roots in Judaism.
You have been chosen by God to make joyous holiday appointments with Him! If you are seeking a resource with which to explore your heritage and understand the impact of Judaism on Christian living, look no further than LIVE Your Festive Heritage by Dr. Jen Marik Betham-Lang. Don't miss another celebration!

The Quinn family celebrates their most dramatic Christmas yet in this enchanting sequel to Elin Hilderbrand's bestselling Winter Street.
Christmas on Nantucket finds Winter Street Inn owner Kelley Quinn and his family busily preparing for the holiday season. Though the year has brought tragedy, the Quinns have much to celebrate: Kelley has reunited with his first wife Margaret, Kevin and Isabelle have a new baby; and Ava is finally dating a nice guy.
But when Kelley's estranged wife Mitzi shows up on the island, along with Kevin's devious ex-wife Norah and a dangerously irresistible old fling of Ava's, the Inn is suddenly overrun with romantic feuds, not to mention guests. With jealousy, passion, and eggnog consumption at an all-time high, it's going to take a whole lot more than a Christmas miracle to get the Quinns--and the Inn--through the holidays intact. [close]
