7 Day Fast: Understanding God's Plan Through Faith and Actionby Billy Horton
Billy Horton is a current minor league hitting coach with the San Francisco Giants. Even though he was cut his freshman year in high school, he eventually earned a college baseball scholarship and played in the Minor Leagues from 1997-2000. Billy has 15 years of coaching experience and has worked in nearly every level of the game from youth baseball up to the professional ranks.
7 Day Fast is a transparent look into Billy's life over a seven day period in the autumn of 2011. It chronicles the difficulties he endures as well as the small daily victories he achieves as he searches for God's will during an extremely difficult time in his family's life. During the fast, he fully comes to understand that it is God's strength that he needs to rely on, not his own, which opens the door for the Lord to perform miraculous works in his life.

7 Day Fast is about as real as it gets. Billy gives us a window into his life and through it we see how God strengthens him in some of his weakest moments. Seeing what he overcame with God leading the way is an encouragement to me. I'm ready to trust God more!
How to fully submit to God's desires for our life is a challenge many of us find hard to accomplish. In these days of self satisfaction as soon as possible, we can show little patience for God's plan in our lives. Billy does a great job submitting to his earthly desires and turning his earthly needs towards heaven as he commits to this 7 day fast. The stories and feelings he express will help shape and mold the way you go about making your next big decision. When we are open and willing to go and do what He calls us too, the Lord will use us to bring Him all the Glory and Honor He deserves.
This book is so inspiring and encouraging! I really enjoyed Billy's honesty and transparency thorugh his fasting experience. His faith and trust in God has encouraged me personally and has shown me how powerful prayer and fasting is. I believe both men and women would enjoy this book!
7 Day Fast is an incredible and inspiring story that truly served as a reality check to me (and anyone reading this). Are we taking the steps we need to take to strengthen our faiths and trust in God? Billy's account of his experiences with the Lord throughout this novel was presented in such a way that you feel like you're walking with him the entire time. It shows that God is in charge and he has a plan that we might not know at the time, but we must put all of our faith in Him.
God's hand is everywhere in this book! For us who want to serve Christ and seem to always have our paths blocked by frustrating events this is the book to read. Billy uses the history of his God-given baseball talents and applies them in a simple and fun to read book that not only completely immerses you in his families daily struggles but more importantly shows you how Christ can and does direct the paths of your life. All throughout the book is seen the physical effects of a fast but the ending of the book shows the excitement of the spiritual benefits of a fast. I suggest anyone who wants to grow in the Lord read and apply the contents of this wonderful book to their lives.
