Publisher's 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.

Mixed Feelings

Some of his statements were contradictory to what I felt his book was about. The end was above me and left me somewhat confused. I did appreciate how he layer the information out.
