Top Customer Reviews
"In these pages, you'll discover why you should fast, how to prepare for your first fast, what kind of fasts to follow, how to get started, and what to expect after you are finished."
1. "you'll discover why you should fast"
This promise is kept. You will learn that prayers are more powerful during the fast because fasting gets you closer to God.
2. "how to prepare for your first fast"
Not even mentioned.
3. "what kind of fasts to follow"
Only few pages are devoted to this topic, when in fact, the book should have been centered around it.
4. "how to get started"
The only information you get is that your first fast should last for a day only.
5. "what to expect after you are finished"
Not even mentioned.
Overall, it is a nice book for what it is, but a Beginner's Guide to Fasting it isn't.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is struggling, needs a greater understanding/appreciation of fasting.
Still, I'm content with purchase.
