Does fasting have any real value? How can an empty stomach be of any advantage to you?

Fasting is an ancient practice that has enormous benefits but is often misunderstood. Shrouded in mystery, it has even been mistaken for dieting. In reality, fasting is so much more than depriving oneself of a few meals.

I was going to decide to do my very first personal fasting (other than our congregational fast in Victory Tacloban) and I'm really blessed that I got to read this book during my preparation for fasting days. This completely changed my perspective on fasting and gave me the desire to really fast in a deeper level. This book was full of wisdom and grace that it helped to have a true Christ-centered fast. I highly recommend reading this and I will definitely read it again for my next fast ...more

I read this during the prayer and fasting week and it gave me a different perspective about the reason why we ought to do fasting aside from depriving ourselves of food for a while.

Not today, Satan!

More of you God, and less of me.

A very quick read but with a ton of content. It's a very timely book right now since we are having our annual prayer and fasting (day 3 of 5 today) in our church. I have been doing this since 2013 but it is only now that I see fasting in a much deeper and lovely way. Indeed, it is not a sacrifice nor a religious duty, but about the matters of the heart and our relationship with Christ. I couldn't give justice to all the lessons this book gives, so it's better if you read it instead.

For anyone
