What a great resource! From the Scriptures Towns develops 9 different fasts to help create breakthroughs in different areas of our spiritual lives. From the "Disciples Fast" to the "Esther Fast" Towns develops techniques to bring new depth and meaning to our prayer lives and gain new boldness for our requests. Some of the fasts are private to help us overcome problematic "besetting" sins; others are corporate in nature, calling for revival or a cessation of oppression. This is a great resource for anyone who wishes to make fasting a meaningful part of their spiritual walk.
themadge reviewed Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough: A Guide to Nine Biblical Fasts on
This is my go-to resource for the topic of fasting. He categorizes nine different fasts which helps you discern your focus for the fast you desire to do. I have done a combination of a few different fasts. I like Towns because he is grounded in scripture and also balanced in his approach. He recognizes the seriousness of the fast but doesn't come across as totally legalistic. I highly recommend this book.
