Throughout the book, McKnight backs up his ideas with scripture, logic, and words from other Biblical scholars. I found the book to be thought-provoking. Most of the book was devoted to spiritual ramifications of fasting, but it was valuable that physical consequences and warnings were examined as well. While fasting is an important part of a Christian’s walk, it should not be done to an extreme that may cause death. The overall theme that fasting is a natural response, demonstrating a person’s hunger for more of Jesus is a powerful message for Christians who are often hungrier for the things of the world than the savior of the world.
