The Fasting Journey -- written by a man for whom fasting has become a way of life -- is a journal of his experiences and a guide for those of us who want to learn from someone who has known firsthand the joys and hardships of fasting. Peter Holmes shows us how fasting is a death of self and an act of intercession that God uses as a spiritual weapon to clarify and unleash God's purposes to bring about healing for those trapped in bondage to sin. Because of the understanding God has given him through fasting, he has helped many find answers to their most complex and deeply entrenched problems. Holmes discusses the biblical aspect of fasting from Old Testament Scriptures to the practice of the early church. He explains different kinds of fasts for us to consider -- even non-food fasts -- explores purposes for fasting and tells us how our fasting will impact those around us. In The Fasting Journey, we are called to fast as a way to find out what really controls us, to become more Christ-like and to hear God's voice with a clear, focused ear.
