I certainly appreciate Franklin's heart in writing this book and know I need to start fasting regularly. But I felt this book would have been twice as good if it were half as long. I believe he uses some verses to say what the verses aren't saying and there are hints of the prosperity gospel. Still, I'm glad I read it. A good challenge has being given.
I did a detox back in January but it wasn't what I was looking for spiritually. I started researching "fasting" material and came across author Jentezen Franklin. I was able to get both the Book & Journal for one nice, low price. I started reading the book one week prior to my fast, in preparation. I think that the material covered is relevant. Franklin uses real-life experiences of his own as well as his family and those members of his church. He uses language that most can understand. He encourages parents to teach their children early. I wish that I had this type of material along time ago. I can't remember being taught about "fasting" in any of the churches that I've belong to. The only down side to having both the book and journal is that a lot of the material is repeated. However, the journal is a must have.
If you're just looking for weight loss, this isn't the book for you. Prayer and meditation upon God are co-requisites of this course.
Whether you have fasted many times or have never tried fasting, this book will ignite a passion in your heart to discover the benefits of fasting and make it a part of your christian walk. Encouraging and inspiring. I highly reccomment for anyone who desires more than an the "ordinary" Christian life.
This book has motivated our church to recapture the discipline of fasting and it has been an awesome experience. I recommend this book to every Christian who seeks a deeper walk with the Lord, a clearer vision of God's will and a greater in filling of the power of the Holy Spirit.
My church got this book for the people to read during our 21 day fast and it is practical and encouraging. I gave one to my neighbor who had never fasted before and when she was done reading the book she was sparked to fast. This book is anointed and a great resource.
This is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to pursue a deeper walk with the Lord! We ordered this book as a study tool for our women's support group. It is written with simplicity and powerfully, and has been a blessing in my life. God bless Pastor Franklin and Christianbook.com!
This book was wonderful- full of scriptural insight and wisdom. Gives you all the tools and right motivation and personal desire to seek God through fasting and prayer. I would recommend this book to anyone desiring more of God and His clear direction in their life.
Couldn't put the book down!!! Read it in one day, and have fasted in the past for the wrong reasons, but now knowing that it is our duty to fast as it is to give & pray make this book really help you understand the importance of fasting. I am on my 4th day of fasting and just received a great blessing! One that I know is no coincidence,...only the power of our Lord working in my life. This is a fabulous book, and I intend to hand it out as gifts to my Christian brothers & sisters!!!
