Book Review - A Womans Guide to Fasting!

Lisa Nelson did an excellent job… all I can say is that her book was an answer sent straight from God Himself.

I don’t see anything in this book that really pegs it down to women only though… I truly believe that both men and women could benefit greatly from reading it.

I love, love, love how Lisa goes deeper into the spiritual side of fasting. Her insight and experiences on the topic opened my eyes to another side of fasting that I had never realized before.

She guides you through different types of fasts… the right and wrong ways to fast and when to fast. She guides you through preparation in the days leading up to the fast, through the fast itself, and the breaking of… and days preceding the fast.  I do not believe there was anything that she left out of this book.

I didn’t realize that there were different types of fasting. I grew up thinking a fast was water… no food… period, for a set amount of time or days.  It was very helpful to learn of other types of fasting, and to realize just how do-able these fasts were to be.

Rich with scriptures, I found it very helpful to follow along with her insights with my own bible.
I said earlier that this book was an answer sent straight from God…. I said this because whilst in prayer for about a month now, I could feel Him guiding me to a fast. My response was that I didn’t know how to fast… the very… and I mean very next day I was given the opportunity to review one of a few available books from a Christian Book Publishing Company (Bethany House)  One of the books available was A Womans Guide to Fasting… it’s amazing how God sends his answers, and how fast he works.

There is no doubting what He is calling me to do… and now, with my new found knowledge of fasting thanks to this book… I no longer have any excuses not to.

You can read the first few pages of this informative book HERE

Also, I need to inform you that I received a copy of this book free from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review… which I have given.
