The Literature of Fasting

People of faith have been fasting for millennia, but why? What is there in the act of embracing hunger that lures in new practitioners and keeps them coming back? I've never fasted before, but I will be reading up on the history, philosophy, theology, science, and various incarnations of the practice--and I'll be collecting the books here.

message 1: by Bishop Mike (new)

Bishop Mike Ememodo I believe in fasting. It is one of the most potent weapon of a Christian. I have fasted for 7, 14 10 and 21 days since 50years I have been a christian and 47years in preaching the Gospel. I have also written a book - Faith and Miracle Power through fasting - a step by step guide to a 21 day water fast.
