Fasting is a Christian perspective on the benefits of fasting and describes the connection between fasting and prayer and what to expect physically, mentally, and spiritually during a fast. It also includes inspiring examples of how fasting has benefited people’s lives, and how you can experience a deeper connection to God and have a more rewarding fasting experience. While fasting is not common among Christians in the United States, the Bible and this book do support it. There are multiple types of fasting in the Bible, and Christians can choose what type of fast they want to do. The guidelines for fasting differ from the Bahá’í Fast, but the advice still applies.
