Book Review: The Daniel Fast

This book was provided for review by Tyndale and this review expresses my honest opinion.

I have had this book for a while (too long really).  I'm more of a fan of the fiction novels than I am of informational books.  That's probably why it took every fiber in my body to read this book and complete it.  I must say that it is eye opening!

The author, Susan Gregory, wrote The Daniel Fast based on scripture that is found in Daniel 1 and 10.  The Daniel Fast is what I would call a "partial fast".  It focuses on eating only pulse foods and vegetables and fruits that come from seeds (reference Daniel 1:12) and staying away from meat, sweets (oh no!!) and wine (reference Daniel 10:3).  In the scriptures you will find that it is for 21 days, and the book gives a plan for 21 days also, but obviously you can do this for as long as you feel like.

She teaches you how to fast in a healthy way, follow a 21 day plan (or longer), create healthy meals, participate in a group and learn how to listen to God.  There are hows and whys listed all through the book with great scripture references and she also shares menu plans with a ton of recipes to help you along with this fast. 

I would highly recommend this book to anyone that would like to grow deeper and find their purpose in life.  You can read the first chapter HERE.  You can also go to THE DANIEL FAST WEBSITE  to find out more.

I remember buying this book and now I cannot find it. Will have to dig it up as God has been speaking to me about being healthier. Blessings!
