Item description for Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough: A Guide to Nine Biblical Fasts by Elmer Towns...

Overview
Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough is a thought-provoking book on one of the least understood¿but most powerful¿disciplines of Christianity. Most believers know about fasting, but few of us really understand the wonderful benefits that come when we fast with purpose and direction. Written in Dr. Elmer Towns' dynamic; descriptive style, this book gives the"why" of fasting, rather than just the "how." Towns avoids a glut of techniques and schedules, and instead provides a probing look at Isaiah 58, often called the fasting passage. Learn how fasting can strengthen your faith and draw you closer to God, helping you to be a true overcomer in Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fasting For Spiritual Breakthrough?

A Godsend!  Jan 6, 2007
At a time when I needed answers to difficult things this book helped direct my prayers and thoughts. Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough gave me a jumping off point and now the answers ARE coming. I am confident they would not have come had I not followed Mr. Towns' suggestion to fast in the relevent, focused ways he suggests. He has organized his material well. A vital book if you're very serious about getting spiritual answers.

I did not need the workbook, finding everything I needed in the manual instead.

(Please note, I agree with the reviewer below that it is very wise to educate yourself well on this subject before fasting more than a week. For example, when breaking a longer fast you must be knowledgeable or you will cramp, yet there is no danger if you know how to resume eating, go slowly, and are assured your body is ready for a fast in the first place. In fact the health benefits are incomparable and wonderful--increased energy a few days after resuming normal eating.)
 
I do not recommend this book  Dec 6, 2006
The ideas expressed in this book are troublesome and not supportive of a healthy and positive spirituality. Other, more balanced books are available.
 
Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough  Jun 28, 2006
Tremendous book. One of the best I have ever read. Towns writes like he speaks, in very simplistic terms yet very profound. I would recommend this to anyone who is seriously considering or who frequently fast. He provides an eye opening approach and covers all baases.
 
Fasting for a Spirtual Breakthrough  Feb 24, 2006
I bought this as a gift for someone. They told me that it was very helpful to them & have recommended it to others. I have just ordered this same book for myself.
 
Grow Closer to God Through Fasting  Oct 8, 2003
Although I do not have extensive experience in fasting, God has become more intimate to me during the times I have fasted.

An earlier reviewer mentioned that the book sounded more like a lecture and little like an experience. I can assure you that since I have personally taken a class under Dr. Towns, he is an extremely fascinating man to listen to! Also, I like the biblical examples he uses to illustrate the importance and results of fasting. While experience is important, being biblical is even more so!

Towns' book is an excellent read to encourage you to fast. He covers the following points:

1. Models and kinds of fasting.
2. Principles for fasting to break sin's bondage.
3. Fasting to solve a problem and break negative emotional habits.
4. Fasting to meet the need of others.
5. Fasting to make important decisions and physical healing.
6. Fasting for protection from demonic attacks.
7. Fasting to experience personal revival.
8. How fasting can benefit our bodies.

Read to be encouraged and challenged!
