Franklin is the author of New York Times best sellers, Right People, Right Place, Right Plan and Fasting. His ministry extends internationally through the televised broadcast, Kingdom Connection, which is seen on television networks such as TBN and The Church Channel.
Jentezen Franklin is one of five children born to Billy and Katie Franklin. His father died in 1991, and his mother remains actively involved in Franklin's church, Free Chapel. His mother is one of twenty-seven children in the Stone family of Wilson, North Carolina. He has an older brother, Doyle, and two younger sisters, Jennifer and Jill. Early in his career, Franklin traveled as an evangelistic team with his elder brother, Richie, who died, December 1, 2012.

Helpful and Encouraging Read Sep 3, 2008
I've recently completed reading this book. The book is a very easy read. Much scripture was utilized throughout the book to support writings. This certainly lent credence to what was written.
The excitement of the author for fasting is evident throughout the book in that the book had an upbeat "tone". Testimonies were shared from members of the church as to the benefit of fasting. The tone and testimonies certainly are encouragers as one can see great benefits (miracles were actually noted) of fastings.
Most simply fasting was presented as a necessity that can be approached with joy and great expectation. Yes, I would give up a steak and croissant for wisdom and to know the heart of God. Smile.
