Having proved over many years the great value and blessing of fasting, the author has written this book to share with others what the Bible has to say about this important and neglected subject. His aim has been to furnish a handbook which deals not only with all the main passages in Scripture that touch on the matter, but also with the practical issues involved. This is a balanced study which seeks to give to the subject that weight that Scripture gives it and avoids exaggeration and over-emphasis. The book includes a biblical index, and a appendix dealing with the textual problems surrounding four references to fasting in the New Testament.

MissiPrescott, AZAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Book to Read; Called or NotApril 17, 2012MissiPrescott, AZAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was recommended to me when God called me to a 40-day fast over 40 years ago. I did this when I was in my early 20's. I just ordered two books because my pastor has asked me to write an article on the time I fasted for our church newsletter. I have broken the article up into two segments: 1. The Physical Benefits and 2. The Spiritual Benefits. I ordered two books so that I would have my own copy again and a second copy just in case someone would like to borrow one to read. I will also keep a record of whom I loan it to so that I will be able to circulate it through the congregation.
I recommend it to anyone who is thinking about going on a fast, to anyone who thinks they are being called by God to go on a fast and to anyone who wants to know about a Spiritual Fast.
