""This book by Dr. Maseko introduces newtheological insights into fasting and obedience to God. His assertion that since eating was the original sin of disobedience, abstaining from food is a means of physical and spiritual restoration for those in Christ is an area for further debate by Bible scholars. . . . This book will go a long way in promoting a healthy lifestyle, thus assisting in reducing non-communicable diseases.""
--Ray Billa, pastor at Tshepisong Ministries and medical doctor at Helen Joseph Hospital
""How refreshing to find a scientist who not only believes there is divine power, but uses the skills God gave him to educate others on how the bridge between science and spirituality can be built. In my line of work as an emergency department medical officer, it is refreshing to be able to share with patients (both young and old) and colleagues literature that shows that the future of medicine is not in resisting all other beliefs, but in putting it all together for the good of our patients. A fantastic read!""
--Rainy Dube, medical doctor and clinical lecturer at the University of the Witwatersrand
""The Daniel Fast is an incisive piece of writing relevant for this and future generations of the Christian faith. All friends of God stand to benefit from the combination of scientific and spiritual wisdom contained in the exposition of both the physical and spiritual benefits of the Daniel kind of fasting. I endorse this book without any shadow of doubt. Read on and grow your faith.""
