Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Fasting, argues Hickey, is an integral Christian discipline that has been neglected in our time—particularly in the Protestant tradition. An evangelist with her own television show and magazine, Hickey hews close to the Bible and writes for a broad Christian audience. She communicates in a simple, direct style that respects the reader's intelligence, using a balanced blend of biblical narratives, personal insights and practical how-to advice (including a recipe for "cleansing soup" and suggestions on how best to break a fast). The 21-day program referred to in the subtitle actually only occupies one chapter—it's a testimonial to the success that her church in Colorado had with this three-week time of focused renewal. The bulk of the text explores the meaning and purpose of fasting and prayer (fasting is a physical discipline, while praying is a spiritual discipline) and then turns to a series of 12 reasons to fast and pray (i.e., to overcome evil, attain wholeness or effect revival) complete with tips for preparing and conducting a successful fast in each of these areas. Hickey's suggestions are concrete, but she urges individuals to fast only as they are led by the Spirit. It is an accessible and timely devotional for a materialistic and food-obsessed culture. (Feb. 20)

I thought this was an incredible book! Not only did it give you the biblical principles behind fasting, but it gave advice on how and scriptures to go about it. I have read many books on the topic and this is by far my favorite one! You won't regret buying it!!

This is a great book that does in fact combine fasting with prayer. The author tells us when to fast, ways to fast and good prayers to use with our different issues. There is a wealth of information in this book taken straight out of the Bible that helps us with our fasting questions. I would recommend any Christian to read this.

As I have said in the title, this is the best book on Prayer and Fasting. And I have read and studied many books on the subject. This book answered all my questions and explained things in a way that the other books could not. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Christian discipline of Prayer and Fasting.

This book has inspired me to looking into the various fasting methods and apply them to my own life. Fasting for your needs and those of others works, because these are principles from God's Word.

I first got to know about Marilyn Hickey from watching Pr Benny Hinn's This is Your Day video on demand.

Marilyn has memorized 23 books of the Bible; no mean feat given that I have only memorized only 3 Psalms myself

This book is scriptural; what ever Marilyn has to say/opine is substantiated with Chapter & Verse from the Bible

I will give this book to my sister & hope she can pick up pointers as she fasts more than me

Marilyn has gone on mission trips to Pakistan, Sudan & Iran (not exactly beds of roses)

God Bless Marilyn Hickey with long life .. you can tell the difference of people who delve into the word of God

Marilyn at 81 is still sprightly & alert; and has the mind of Christ

I LOVE this book. I honestly feel that even if you are not fasting, this is an awesome book. There is SO much information in it, but not presented in the way you feel overwhelmed. I truly love this book. I actually did embark on a 21 day fast. I fasted everything except fruits and vegetables (I am about 60lbs overweight). My fast was enlightening on SO many levels and I have created a healthy lifestyle thanks to this book. My only tiny complaint about this book is she uses New King James Version for the bible verses- so I had to look up everything in my bible. I am not a fan of that version. BUY THIS BOOK it will truly change your life!

Fasting has been practiced for years as a means of revival and personal breakthrough. This book challenges the reader to fast and discover things well beyond comprehension.
