Product Description

Most believers know about fasting, but few really understand the wonderful benefits that come when we fast with purpose and direction. Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough gives the why of fasting, rather than just the how. Towns avoids a glut of techniques and schedules; instead he provides a probing look at Isaiah 58, often called "the fasting passage," and introduces nine biblical fasts---each designed for a specific physical and spiritual outcome. Learn how fasting can strengthen your faith and draw you closer to God, helping you to be a true overcomer in Christ.

    I liked this book, it made me think of different situations in my life where fasting might be useful but it did seem a bit unorganized.

    It's concise! This book lifts up the layers of the subject of fasting for a breakthrough.It explains in detail the various fast, with scholarly precision, but in easy language for understanding in any level.
    It is a resource book that one can refer to for many years to come.
    It is a great teaching tool for small groups, and sermon preparation.

    I was introduced to this book through a seminary class and found it to be a very helpful book in understanding the biblical purposes of fasting. It also challenged my heart to become personally involved in this spiritual discipline. It would benefit anyone who wants to pursue more teaching on this subject.

    This book has encouraged me to go back to my spiritual roots. To have a hunger for God, you must feed your spirit(the Word) and not your flesh(physical food). This book gives you guidance on which fast and how to fast.

    The book was helpful in that it gave me direction on how and why to fast. I did the disciples fast a few months ago to break the addiction food had over my life. Praise God! I also did the Esther fast a few weeks ago for protection for my family and granddaughter. I enlisted the help of others who fasted with me. God is good! It was a difficult fast but Praise God for His faithfulness.
