By Elmer Towns / Gospel Light

Most believers know about fasting, but few really understand the wonderful benefits that come when we fast with purpose and direction. Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough gives the why of fasting, rather than just the how. Towns avoids a glut of techniques and schedules; instead he provides a probing look at Isaiah 58, often called "the fasting passage," and introduces nine biblical fasts---each designed for a specific physical and spiritual outcome. Learn how fasting can strengthen your faith and draw you closer to God, helping you to be a true overcomer in Christ.

This is a balanced study which seeks to give to the subject that weight that Scripture gives it and avoids exaggeration and over-emphasis.

570180: The Fasting Journey The Fasting Journey
By Peter Holmes / Authentic US

The Fasting Journey - written by a man for whom fasting has become a way of life - is a journal of his experiences and a guide for those of us who want to learn from someone who has known firsthand the joys and hardships of fasting. Peter Holmes shows us how fasting is a death of self and an act of intercession that God uses as a spiritual weapon to clarify and unleash God's purposes to bring about healing for those trapped in bondage to sin. Because of the understanding God has given him through fasting, he has helped many find answers to their most complex and deeply entrenched problems.

Holmes discusses the biblical aspect of fasting from Old Testament Scriptures to the practice of the early church. He explains different kinds of fasts for us to consider - even non-food fasts - explores purposes for fasting and tells us how our fasting will impact those around us. In The Fasting Journey, we are called to fast as a way to find out what really controls us, to become more Christ-like and to hear God's voice with a clear, focused ear.
