Excellent book on the correct perspective of fasting and how it fits into the Christian life. Permeated with the author's fervency to glorify and serve God, and exhorts the reader to do the same.

Rich in wisdom and truth... had to slow myself down to take it all in!
Started off well, but lost its subject (fasting) and spent a chapter ranting about abortion. I happen to agree with the author on the topic, but if I want to listen to a rant about abortion I will do - I don't really want it inserted into a book on fasting via a tenuous link. 'All these people in the Bible fasted and their motives/methods/pride pleased/displeased God. Because God rewards those who do His will and are nice to others without getting up themselves about the whole business, we should fast and pray about serioua world problems. I am now going to talk about abortion, abortion law in America, American governmental ills and how the Supreme Court ia a failure of democracy for 45 minutes.'
Having said that, the other five hours were excellent. I would just recommend skipping the last chapter as it really doesn't relate to the topic of the book. With that in mind, I would still recommend it to anyone interested in Christian fasting and a Biblical argument for it.
Although not as deep an epiphany as "Desiring God", this book has deeply challenged me to make fasting a regular part of my walk with the Lord - for His glory.
