The point that Mr Franklin makes overwhelmingly is that fasting can break down the doors of heaven giving us access to its booty/bounty. Fasting in this book appears as a revised prosperity gospel. Many of the testimonies are of financial gain or other outward needs being met,overshadowing the deeper things of God that Mr Franklin does touch upon. I would have thought that the topic of fasting would have been covered in depth in a 75 to 100 page booklet so when I began this 237 page book I was surprised to find so few and such generic testimonies. I would have rather read several chapter long stories of changed lives than the short anonymous blurbs about temporal successes. As I said the deeper things of God are to be found in this volume. They are just lost in a sea of prosperity.
My main criticism of Mr Franklin however is his misuse of Scripture. Some of his quotations were ambiguous but some were just wrong. The Daniel Fast is an example of ambiguity.Read more ›
