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."
Only the apostle Paul could write the words the early churches and you need to hear. You'll discover so much more about God's love and grace through Praying the Scriptures as you discover that prayer involves more than intellect.
People fast for many reasons: to break an addiction, to seek God for healing, to discover the answer to a lingering problem, and some fast for revival. But the greatest reason to fast is to get to know God intimately and to feed on the bread of life. This book is not an instruction manual on the methods of fasting or on how to pray. Rather, Dr. Elmer Towns describes the spirit of fasting that leads to an intimate knowing of Jesus Christ.
This book does not to tell you how to get answers to your prayers. There are thousands of books like that. This a radically different book because it approaches prayer from God's perspective. Prayer is a relationship with God. When you understand how God answers prayer, then you realize prayer is all about trusting your heavenly father, trusting him to answer what is best for you, how it's best for you, and when it's best for you.
