Fasting: Fasting as Body Talk in the Christian Tradition (Ancient Practices) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Building a body and mind that hungers for God.

Is the practice of faith centered solely on the spirit? Is the body an enemy, or can it actually play a role in our pursuit of God? In this installation of the Ancient Practices Series, Dr. Scot McKnight reconnects the spiritual and the physical through the discipline of fasting.

The act of fasting, he says, should not be focused on

results or used as a manipulative tool. It is a practice to be used in response

to sacred moments, just as it has in the lives of God's people throughout history. McKnight gives us scriptural accounts of fasting, along with practical wisdom on benefits and pitfalls, when we should fast, and what happens to our bodies as a result.

For those who have wondered how to grasp the

value of this most misunderstood ancient

practice, this book is a comprehensive guide.
