Summary

A thought-provoking work on one of the least understood - but most powerful - disciplines of Christianity. Most believers know about fasting, but few of us really understand the wonderful benefits that come when we fast with purpose and direction. Written in Dr. Elmer Towns' dynamic, descriptive style, this title 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." Learn how fasting can strengthen your faith and draw you closer to God, helping you to be a true overcomer in Christ.

Power resource, moves to intentional discipline!

Def read for those wanting to learn more on types of fasts, their origins and their parameters. I didn't agree with the few mentions in the book on the Daniel fast that sickness in the body may have affected vital organs so much so that fasting and prayer for healing may not work. Instead, I follow that it is always the will of God for people to be free from entanglements and bondage, regardless of the degree of them. The book even outlines a fast for those who aren't Christ followers, making it a book relevant for all people who desire God. The ending about the Ester fast to spiritually protect our pastors is eye opening! I have to read again and take notes this time because of the wealth of factual information, but I think there is a workbook out there that would be good for the note taker.

Best for understanding the complete act of fasting

As a Pastor this book is key in knowing personally how effective fasting is! Not only shutting down the flesh, but crying out in prayer and several other actions during the fast.
Amazing and enlightening.
