A 184 page introduction to the practice of fasting from the Pentecostal perspective. Martin discusses every Biblical text dealing briefly yet insightfully with fasting. He also delves into fasting in Church history outside Pentecostalism, in the Pentecostal tradition, and offers a theology and guidelines for fasting.

What may come across reading Martin's "Fasting" is the realization that the Bible gives greater importance to fasting, more than we may have otherwise thought, as, not only a tool for spiritual growth, but a necessary practice for maintaining healthy fellowship with God.

If one seeks to look for where to begin learning about fasting, Martinmas provided the first step in it's study. But even if you have read other books on the subject, I recommend reading this one, also if only because he seems to thoroughly, if briefly, every Biblical text on or related to fasting.

Martin also provides a lengthy Bibliography, covering 10 pages (counting from and back) for further study. ( )
