Jesus Himself fasted because He knew some supernatural realities could not be released in any other way. For that reason alone, Christians should make fasting a common practice.

Very good Christian book
This book explores the spiritual aspects of fasting for Christians and defines why fasting should be part of the life of the Christian.
There is a lot of practical advice on how to go about it and what to expect from it. There is a good deal of exposition of scriptures showing how fasting was used by many more Bible heroes than we might at first call to mind. It is a thoroughly Bible-based introduction to fasting suitable for a wide range of Christians of most denominations.
Right now fasting for dietary purposes has become very popular with things like the Intermediate Fasting diet. This book underlines how fasting for spiritual purposes differs from purely dietary fasting, although the two do not necessarily contradict each other. A fast is like an "all day prayer" as Jentezen puts it, and greatly serves to focus the mind on God and increase our intimacy with God. This gives us access to far greater blessings than just a dietary fast.
This is a book of discipleship, aimed at those who are Christians. It has nothing in it which would offend others who fast, but is written to readers on the assumption that they are already committed Christians. The author also makes it clear that fasting in no way defines whether or not a person is saved. This is a way of increasing blessing and intimacy with God and a more powerful prayer life for a person already saved by believing in Jesus.

Yes, see comments below.
Any additional comments?
As a 46 year old that’s been a believer since age 17, my life changed again in 2001 when I decided to actually READ the Bible. I began a 1 year plan to read the whole Bible. That changed my life and I decided to do that for the rest of my life. My life is good, I am blessed beyond my understanding. However, in seeking to know the Creator more, and looking for new breakthroughs in my life, a friend recommended this book. I have never been a good “faster”. I like to say I’m slow at fasting. :) While listening to this book, the Lord touched me, the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart and I knew this is the new thing I need to make part of my life. I haven’t even begun my fast, yet the Lord has already started blessing me in new ways. I highly recommend this book if you seek breakthrough in your life. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”
