EvieChicago, ILAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The Daniel Fast by Susan GregoryDecember 3, 2013EvieChicago, ILAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I first opened and read The Daniel Fast by Susan Gregory, it broke down the purpose of the fast and brought in biblical aspect of fasting. It didn't make me feel like I was "suppose to" or it wasn't "shoulding me" at all, but bringing me to understand my personal purpose for my fasting. I've used the The Daniel Fast three times in the past two years...first to break a taunting habit while preparing for a women's bible study, second time, while preparing for a state examine (yes, passed it!) and the third time, for a horrible personal breakup. Each time, I was lead by the Holy Spirit as it strengthened me and helped me through such a rough season in my life.
I recommend this book if you want to get serious with God. It was the most peaceful times of my walk with Him.
Blessings to you without measure!

It explains what it is and answers many questions concerning this type of fast. The recipes are great and the devotional is wonderful.
Simply Shop and SaveOntario, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5This is a good book about the Daniel fasting.March 27, 2012Simply Shop and SaveOntario, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Fasting is not a common buzz word these days so when the opportunity to review the book, The Daniel Fast came up, I took up the offer to find out information about fasting.
As you know, fasting is not a common approach to loosing weight. Our culture has more of a problem of gaining weight and finding quick trick solutions. For myself, it's not a big problem but I must admit I used to be too slim before marriage and since then, I have put on the pounds.
Fasting was a part of the Jewish culture and various Bible characters participated in this discipline. Daniel, who is an Old Testament character who had deep faith in God, abstained from all foods except for foods from the seeds and only drinking water.
I have never participated in a fast so the material that Susan Gregory is informative because she provides a step-by-step plan about the process of fasting. She includes the definition and preparations of a fast, daily devotions for doing a twenty-one day Daniel Fast, and some nutritious and tasty recipes.
Susan mentions there are three fasts: an absolute fast; a normal fast; and a partial fast. She focuses on the Daniel Fast which basically means that people abstain from some foods in their diet like processed foods, preservatives, and food colouring,
I think fasting could be a personal future event that I could participate in order to deepen my relationship with God. The Daniel Fast by Susan Gregory is a good resource to have on hand about fasting.
KatalystOrange County, CAAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Take a Pass on "The Daniel Fast"January 17, 2012KatalystOrange County, CAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1The Daniel Fast plan is not a Scripturally-based model for fasting. Rather, it's a nutritional plan that strives to have a spiritual component, but lacks, largely due to a poor hermeneutic.
The majority of the book is about food preparation, with 100 of its 262 pages dedicated to recipes.
I didn't find useful spiritual material in The Daniel Fast. The devotional section was quite troubling to me, inappropriately using allegory for some of the lessons, and focused on the author's experiences and observations rather than on Scripture itself.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Tyndale for review purposes. My full review is posted at http://h-n-t.blogspot.com/2012/01/review-take-pass-on-daniel-fast_16.html
WagaboodlesMinneapolis, MNAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5It's not A Diet, but about Holistic HealthJanuary 16, 2012WagaboodlesMinneapolis, MNAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I'm always skeptical of books that claim they have the answers...especially when it comes to diet and health. Susan Gregory's book, The Daniel Fast, wasn't one of those books, however, mainly because she doesn't taut the Daniel Fast as a diet to get you the figure you desire. This is because the book is not about a diet, but a fast meant to aid you in your growth with God. It focuses on being healthy: body, mind and spirit (Gregory delineates the differences between these three).
The Daniel Fast is based upon the approach Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego took in Babylon to stay faithful to God in the midst of pressure to conform to their captive culture. It is focused on eating fruit, vegetables, and grains as well as drinking only water for a brief period of time (up to three weeks--or more as you feel led) as well as taking time to deepen your relationship with God.
The first half of the book describes the Daniel Fast, looks at holistic health (body, mind and spirit) and focusing on growing in God. The second half contains recipes, menu ideas and answers to questions that Gregory is frequently asked. I haven't practiced the Daniel Fast yet, but I can appreciate it's principles and purpose.
In exchange for my honest review, Tyndale Publishers have provided me with a copy of the book.
