Overview

Fasting has always been a powerful spiritual discipline, and the Daniel Fast has long been a popular form of fasting. But what is the Daniel Fast?
When the prophet Daniel was taken captive into Babylon, the king saw in him a promising leader and administrator. If only the young man could be “Babylon-ized,” perhaps he would help the king rule over the exiled Jews. The king’s first step toward Daniel’s “corruption” was to provide a sumptuous menu to tempt him, full of fattening comfort foods and rich wines. The prophet’s response was to eat only vegetables and drink only water. He chose to honor God over the king.

The prophet Daniel is a model for anyone who longs to honor God and experience the spiritual breakthrough that begins with prayer and self discipline. In this new guide to fasting, Dr. Elmer Towns, author of Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough, coaches you through a 10-day or 21-day period of renewal. He answers practical questions, such as what to eat and when, and addresses deeper issues as well—how to pray effectively, how to encounter God during your fast, how to worship through self-discipline, how to pray for specific answers, and, at the same time, how to fast with a healthy diet. You’ll also find original Daniel Fast recipes created by executive chef John P. Perkins. Choose spiritual nourishment over bodily satisfaction, as Daniel did, and invite God to change your life!

    Don't buy it.

    I was skeptical about this book, I liked some parts of it, but some things are just not biblical.
