I began reading this book at the Barnes & Noble store. I couldn't afford to get the book when i first picked it up but I found it amazingly interesting. I was going through some life changing trials and i wanted to know a little more about fasting. Since i am in a spiritual walk right now I needed to learn more about fasting. I eventually read the whole book while visiting Barnes & Nobles with my clients on Wednesday. I recommend this book to anyone whop is in the process of finding inner strength and peace. It really works. It gives you clarity and a peace of mind. Very good read. I loved the scripture references that he gives to each phase of fasting. Awesome.

Fasting helps you hear God clearer and louder than ever. Fasting gives you a chance to see yourself in God's light. HE will reveal such things to do that I believe are not revealed unless through fasting and praying. When the Israelites fasted right, the Bible said, 'Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your health shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you, the glory of the LORD shall be your reward you shall call and the LORD shall answer, you shall cry and the LORD will say, 'HERE I AM.' --Isaiah 58:8-9

This is an excellent book! Not only does it present a spiritual discipline that so few believers practice today, it instills a burning fire to begin fasting immediately. This work was very well written with tons of information and scripture references it could easily be read in a Saturday. I'll be buying extra copies of this for folks I disciple!

Jentzen knocks this one out of the park. This book is well written, organized superbly, and well worth the price. It was so informative. I read it almost 2 months ago and I'm still talking about it and recommending it to friends and family.

I never really knew what fasting is and how much it can change one's life until after I read this book. I found it very helpful esp. the bible references that were included.

Excellent book, details the need to fast and reasons why believers should fast. Insightful read and provokes excitement for those in the midst of a fast creating a spirit of expectancy for the move of God!!!!

I am so glad I bought this book. Fasting has always been a point of confusion for me and Pastor Franklin breaks it down simply and plainly and backs it with scripture. If you are planning a fast or have heard of fasting I recommend this highly.
