The Forgotten Feast

Have you ever wondered if you were doing enough for God? Or whether you were pleasing to the Lord?

We live in a performance-driven world, and it is very easy to live as performance-driven Christians. Many of us have lived with grace in our heads but not in our hearts. We talk grace, but deep down we wonder if we measure up.

This book was born out of the author’s own spiritual journey and was triggered by a revelation of the prophetic meaning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. It anchors grace to covenant in a systematic examination of Scripture and does not shy away from examining some of the New Testament Scriptures that seem to contradict grace.

In this book you will discover:

  • why grace is best understood in the context of covenant
  • why it is imperative to “give away grace”
  • why we tend to go back to law and self-effort
  • why the Feast of Unleavened Bread is so important
  • why holiness and grace go hand in hand

If perhaps you are a performance-driven Christian, with grace in your head, but not in your heart, then this book is for you.


“Accessible to all, The Forgotten Feast offers new insights into old truths….

A powerful exposition of Grace and Covenant and

the place of the Law in the light of a neglected feast.”

Melt van der Spuy

Director Development Associates International

 “A sheer delight from cover to cover…. a systematic Bible-study …

applicable, foundational and going somewhere.

One of the reads of the year for me.

It has made me re-think the emphasis and

shape of my own teaching.”

The Rt. Rev. Dr. Philip Le Feuvre

Founding Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of St Mark the Evangelist, Limpopo

 “Over many years I have personally seen how Michael’s clear teaching on the New Covenant

has helped many people find  a living relationship with Jesus

and helped many more to be liberated from the subtle pull of legalism.

I have no doubt that many believers will find this to be the most important Christian book they ever read.”

Jamie Finlay

Site Pastor City Church Bradley Stoke Bristol United Kingdom

 “It has caused me to re-evaluate the core business of my ministry as a disciple of Christ.”

The Rt. Rev. Steve Moreo

Anglican Bishop of Johannesburg

 “What a blessing to meet the man and to read the book!

I enjoyed The Forgotten Feast so much. It is easy to read and is a testimony of God’s Grace.

Michael’s personal testimony underlines everything that he writes about so well.”

Gerhard Barnard

Senior Pastor Logos Christian Church Cape Town

“A timely, bold and pointed reminder to Christians that our identity is not in the Law

but in Christ and the grace of the New Covenant.”

Jack Carstens

Founder David and Jonathan Foundation

Evidence for the Christian Faith

Have you ever heard anyone deride the Christian Faith as a fairy tale?

Or claim that there’s no evidence for it at all?

Mock that it’s a whole lot of hot air?

Complete rubbish?

Would you have the faintest idea how to answer such charges?

Or perhaps you are the one who has made these claims.

Then this book is for you.

•    Either to strengthen you in your own faith

•    Or to equip you always to be ready to defend your faith

•    Or to challenge you to have the courage to actually look at the evidence with an open mind.

In this book you will

•    learn that there is no such thing as proof with regard to history

•    discover that there is powerful evidence for the Christian Faith

•    see why to call Jesus a great teacher or prophet but to deny he is the Son of God is completely illogical

•    examine the evidence for the Resurrection as if you were a lawyer

•    and encounter the astounding prophecies about Jesus in the Old Testament

” …Clearly written and closely argued … eloquent in its simplicity, impressive in the wide range of scholarship it covers, and powerfully persuasive in the conclusion to which the reader is led….”

Paul Walters, Emeritus Professor Rhodes University.

“Michael Arnold’s accessible but stimulating apologetic work shows compelling biblical evidence for Jesus as the Christ of God and the bearer of Salvation by Grace.”
