Inter-Varsity Press Simplicity & Fasting, Spiritual Disciplines Bible Studies

It is said, "Less is more." What would happen if we spent less? Spoke less? Ate less? What is the purpose of fasting? What are the benefits of leading a simple life? This study guide explores the disciplines of simplicity and fasting—foreign ideas these days. Yet leading a simple life can help us focus on what's truly important. Fasting helps us feast on God. It clears our mind of clutter so that we can become hungry for the things that really matter. 6 studies with notes for leaders include sections: Turning Toward God, Hearing God Through the Word, and Transformation Exercises.

This book was an easy read but I did not get from it, the deeper understanding I was seeking as to the purpose of fasting and guidance in establishing a fast. In retrospect it really didn't promise what I was looking for so my mistake was in assuming it would.
