Just curious if anyone out there has any input. Don't think I'd spend the money if the topics covered are similar at all.
I haven't seen A Family Guide to Biblical Feasts but we loved Celebrating Biblical Feasts and have used it many times in the past two years although we finished CTG a year ago.
It also has one of the best white bread recipes that I have found!
Oh, and the TM for CTG refers to Celebrating Biblical Feasts directly and directs you to certain pages through out the year so that may be a consideration as well.

I have both around here. These are some reasons why I think MFW made the correct choice, even though both are excellent:
* Family Guide is well over 500 pages and retail price is about $40.
* Biblical Feasts is under 200 pages and retails at $13.95.
* Family Guide talks about the meaning of the feasts, including the author's own interpretation of many things, and includes projects that are mostly paperwork or crafts I don't know how to accomplish, like making specific flags for your rotating centerpiece.
* Biblical Feasts tells you how to celebrate the feasts in your family.
But again, I like both. I like books :o)

JMHO, I don't think I would want to mess with the balance of activities/projects adding another major book would cause. It's been our experience that anything additional should just be for book basket or it takes away from the beautiful flow of a MFW program. I'm sure people successfully add stuff all the time, I am just not one of them! ;)
