Overview

Russ Masterson had read and heard about purpose, but didn’t have a clue what his own purpose was to be. And there was emptiness where there should have been value. “I had a college degree, and soon a seminary degree to accompany it, yet I didn’t know where to go or what to do.” As he puts it, “I kept hoping a step would arrive when it was time to lift my foot.”

Disillusioned with his life, as well as with God, he heard this advice: fast from food for 40 days. Faithless and frazzled, Russ accepted the challenge, hoping for direction, reflecting on the past, and wrestling with issues like purpose, faith, and love.

In this book, readers will find a fresh literary voice—an insightful thinker who meets people in their humanity while helping them to see they can be rescued from it. The journey of these forty days without food will help you explore what really matters in life.

There's not a whole lot to this book - the author fasts for 40 days and makes a daily entry. Most are just the sort of day to day not much going on entries of any journal, although there are occasional moments of deeper thoughts. The scattered flashes of brilliance kept me interested enough to read the whole thing (plus it's pretty short) but I'm glad I got this one when it was a freebie.

Lost. Hard to follow. Not sure why the fast or what the author expected to accomplish. "Goodness to a starving soul", my soul is still starving.

Read more like the author's intention was to write a book then journaling. I didn't understand the purpose of the flashbacks. I wish he would have focused on the fast and less on other people.

This story of a young man searching for God's guidance in his life is what we all really seek. He learned slowly at first that it's not something that happens quickly. We must be patient and let God work in His own way. It's so easy to fall into despair that the goal has to be kept in sight. I look forward to using patience and searching more for God's will. It is inspiring material even while learning what a hard journey it was.
