Book Review ~ Fasting:Student Edition by Jentezen Franklin

Do you want to supercharge your relationship with God, and make your spiritual life come alive? Then Jentezen Franklin’s  Fasting: Student edition is the book for you. With helpful, and biblical insights, Jentezen makes this book a spiritual (and physical) renovator.  Fasting is often overlooked, or, more honestly, ignored.  No one likes to even think about fasting, and only a small remnant care to actually do this sacred practice. Looking through scriptures, however, we are able to see the importance of fasting. Not  as a way of dieting, not Pharisaical tradition, but as a way to draw closer to God while denying your flesh.
I liked:

  • The personal stories. Jentezen Franklin did a great job of including his own personal stories within the book, and he also included examples to help whoever reads in.
  • The easy-to-read feel. Now, this is not an “I Can Read It” book, but it is certainly easier to read than any other book on fasting I have seen. A perfect gift for a high school graduate, college graduate, etc.
  • The shape and size. Now, this has nothing to do with the content, but the way the book was shaped and sized made me want to read it.
  • The biblical value.  It really went back to scripture often, which is important to me.

I disliked:
Nothing. It was a great read.

This was a great book, perfect for any student, young or not-so-young. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to revolutionize your walk with God.

This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
