Fasting is no longer a popular practice. At least, not in the circles I run in. It’s a practice for people who are very spiritual or pastors. It’s a practice for those truly in need of answer or desperately searching.
At least, this is what I thought until I read Fasting by Scot McKnight.
In this book, McKnight tackles fasting from a biblical and practical perspective. Fasting is a practice all Christians need to engage in.
What I loved most was McKnights ability to communicate a complex and dull subject with a clear and compelling writing ability. He didn’t necessarily try to inspire and win an argument; instead, he simply presented the truths about fasting as found in the Bible and how we can pursue fasting as a spiritual discipline.
I recommend this book to anyone who would like to go a little deeper with this specific discipline. Plus, McKnight is a phenomenal thinker, author, writer, and pastor.
